The Main Leaders - These dogs
are our most trusted leaders, the main force at the
front of our teams.
NorthWapiti's Paxson, SDX, CGC -
11 years old, 48 lbs
Paxson has always been THE main leader on the
"A" team. He is an excellent dog with lots
of speed, always driving hard. The perfect
leader and sleddog in our eyes. When he is
up front you feel you could go anywhere or
through any obstacle. Our heart and soul
dog for sure. He has 7 kids and 5
grandkids on our team. His feet are tough
and he rarely needs booties. Best
temperament you could ask for. He is very
quiet and mellow, hardly makes noise in the
yard. He can be found sitting at your feet
during play time, a real mush who just wanted to
be patted all the time.
Camelot, SD - 6 years old, 45 lbs
Lottie is an amazing girl and
our TOP A team
leader. She ROCKS!
Her first race ever she lead as a yearling with
her Dad, Paxson. She is extremely driven,
focused and a major speed pusher. She is very
muscular and tough. Her four kids have shown
her strong, hard driving traits and leader
potential. She is one super gal! A
Paxson super daughter! In the yard she is
bossy and opinionated, always has something to say.
Her nickname is Spottie Lottie or Spotted Dog.
Kelim's Roulette, SD - 4 years old, 43 lbs
Roulette is just
adorable! She loves people and her licker is
always going. Sweet, gentle and just a joy to
have. She lead our A team last year with her
amazing aunt Lottie. She doesn't quite have
the top speed of Lottie but she is super as far as
pushing to keep the speed up and she loves to lope
up hills to keep the team moving. A trait that
is hard to get and one we love. In the yard
she loves our attention and loves wrestling and
running around with all the other dogs. She's
a clown for sure, totally adore her!
Kelim's Dance Smartly, SD - 5
years old, 40 lbs
A smaller girl but with a lot of drive like her
half-sister Lottie. A solid member of the
A team. Very hard working. Tough
feet. One of our only picky eaters.
She is a super sweet, gentle dog who loves all
people. A real pleasure to work with.
In the yard she is gentle and all the boys think
she is super cute!
Kelim's Falcon - 2 years old, 47 lbs
eating dog I have ever seen. She is very
driven and focused in harness, very much like her
Mom (and Dad). Super leader, just an all
around awesome girl. Great with other dogs and
people. We call her our
Kelim's Golden Snitch, SDX, CGC -
9 years old, 53 lbs
Snitch is a ham, always makes you laugh and has
a lot of his Mom, Rainy's silly side. A
main leader, especially in sprints.
Fantastic gee-over dog. Snitch's only
fault really is he tires over distance (which is
odd with Iditarod parents/grandparents). I
almost think he drives too hard and burns
himself out. In the yard he can be found
wrestling or lying on his back or side waiting
for another dog to notice him and want to play
with him. He's a real cutie!
Buick Electra - 2 years old,
Electra is the most quiet, gentle dog we have ever
met. She is also very wimpy with other dogs. She reminds me a lot of her Mom, Smarty
but I also see her Daddy, Tristan in her, especially
her wooo. She is all business in harness.
She is a striking looking girl being jet black &
white with two split parti-eyes which gives her a
tough or sad look, but that is just her markings.
She is an AMAZING leader already. She learned
all her turns her yearling year and is a command
gee/haw leader. She is very impressive in
lead, only thing is she is a hard lefty so we are
working on making her a rightly.
Kelim's Morgana, SD - 6 years old,
She's a smaller girl with shorter legs but she is
the most hyper, energetic dogs we have ever had.
She has lots of drive and always gives it
her all. She is a little behind her siblings
in top speed but always an asset to the team.
She is very shy with strangers so we thought she
would never be a race leader but at age 3 she lead a
race and did a great job and is now a back up or 2nd
string race leader. Way to go Morgana!
In the kennel she is a real silly and fun dog, no
one else gets to see that side of her. She is
really a funny dog! She has super tough feet
and is always reliable. She recently got
spayed from a pyo, but previously she had a single
pup litter, the amazing Roulette!
The Back-Up Race
Leaders/Upcoming Leaders - These dogs are solid
back-up leaders or leaders in training. These
dogs run behind
the leaders or in team often.
Kelim's Beretta -
2 years, 40 lbs
Beretta is a cool
looking dog. She reminds us SO much of her
Daddy, Trouper. She jumps around just like
him except she makes more noise. She LOVES
to swim, more than any other Siberian we have
had. In harness she hates to stop moving. Good
endurance and always focused in the team.
She is a very fast trotter and already a solid
leader in training.
NorthWapiti's Wired of Kelim, SD - 8 years old,
Wired is very reliable in harness, the
toughest sleddog we have ever met. Never
had an injury and has the best feet of any dog
we have ever seen, she has never needed a boot
even in the most harsh conditions. She has a
very fast lope and moves very effortless. Even
though she had pups last December she made my 20
mile Jericho team in March and was a super star
leader. She has many super kids in the
team, Lottie, Merlin, Morgana, Tristan and
upcoming star, Beretta. A excellent
producer. She has a super cool personality
and can always make you laugh. She also
has very expressive eye brows and unique facial
expressions. She is tough though, thinks
all other females are below her.
Wired sends out lots of
wooos and tail wags to Heather, Bill & Mya Croke
thanking them for sponsoring her again this
season! She also sends Mommy kisses to her
Kelim's Scooby Doo - 3 years old, 50 lbs
Scooby looks a lot like his Dad but has his
Mom's desire to push for more speed. A
real blend of his parents. Superb team
dog, always on the A team.
Kelim's Sirius Black, SD, CGC - 9
years old, 51 lbs
A great sprint leader. He is very driven and
works extremely hard. He loves to lope and
pushes for speed. He is a pig for food and
won a food eating contest at the sleddog trade
fair a few years ago. He loves people and
obedience. He has a hard time doing more
than sprints as he has aged (not sure why) he
gets really tired, so will only do sprints and
tours this season.
Jedeye Dean Winchester of Kelim
- 2 years, 44 lbs
Dean is just
awesome, we feel so lucky to have him. He
is sweet, gentle, mellow, quiet, has no mean
bone in his body. He has gorgeous type and
a lovely build. He loves Beretta and they
are best buds. A dog with lots of speed and
already a solid leader in training. Very
Team Dogs/Wheel Dogs - these
dogs run anywhere but lead
Kelim's Merlin, SD - 6 years old,
Merlin is a quiet, steady team dog who just does his
job. He's a mainstay team/wheel dog on the A
team. Great endurance and speed, never seen
him really tired. He is strikingly handsome
with neat parti-eyes that match. He has excellent
feet and a great appetite. He is a favorite of many!
Kelim's Sir Tristan - 3 years old, 48 lbs
We have high hopes for this Lottie/Merlin/Morgana
repeat boy. He was the only one in his
litter (we bred Pax & Wired too late). He
is strikingly handsome and a real funny dog.
He is STRONG and drags you around at hookup.
Excellent eater, tough feet and fast. A
little slow maturing mentally but he was a
'young' yearling last year on the team only
turning 1 in October. He is a lot like his
older brother, Merlin in harness.
Yearlings - First season in
harness, though some may get a bit of leader
training. The new kids in the team!
Kelim's Wayward Son
- yearling, 40 lbs
the smallest in his litter but also the most
focused in harness. Good leader potential.
Kelim's Sam Winchester
- yearling, 42 lbs
structure wise in his litter, very handsome,
very loving! The hardest driving in his
litter so far.
Sibersong's The Dark One of
- yearling, 47 lbs
friendly fellow. Rumple is fast and so far
the star of the yearlings.
