SESSION NOTE: Ashy!
Ash was one of the first sleddies I met back in 2012. What I find really interesting is that he doesn't seem to be aging. Maybe there's a bit more grey around the muzzle, but he's still goofy and sweet and energetic! He's also very connected to his mom Jen and she shares a whole lot of photos of him sacked out on her bed.
Ash is a survivor of the Whistler sled dog cull in 2010.
