Hi Folks

A quick hello from retirement. I know a lot of my doggy friends have passed on but I also know that a lot of you are still having barkloads of fun!

As you can see, I am going a bit "greybeard" on you all but I'm sure all you other seniors know it just means you are more wise like a wizard!

Happy trails

A Blog Farewell

Howdy pals!

Its been a while I know and I haven't had the chance to sniff all your bottoms of late.

I had a serious chat with Ma and we decided to disregard the idea of trying to start my blog again. We have tried eleventy thousand times to keep at it but we always lose our way. Our noggins are steaming too hard and time is sparse.

We have of course been as busy as can bee (teeheehee) and I have been enjoying a lot of adventures and family time. I no longer compete in sled dog racing but a lot of my pals still do. We even sold our scooter to a friend with a little/enormous malamute puppy for when hes big and strong to enjoy running on the trails.

I am 7 years old and my snout is greying. I hope I have many more years of shenanigans ahead!

I'd like to thank all of my friends and their respective pawrents for your visits to my blog and enjoying the happenings of life with me.

Thanks a bunch furiends!

Car problems

Hi pals

I have been having problems in the car. I don't want to get in and when I'm in I get scared.

Ma reckons its a faze I'm going through because I like to mix things up a little.

I used to love going in the car!

Do any of you critters have funny things you do?

Tricks or Trickery

Good Day Furbuddies!!

Ma tells me this sounds exactly like me... as it took me five years to learn to shake hands. 

I am not sure if that is good or bad...

Ma Cuddlies

G'day Pals and Palettes

Hope everyone is having a good time with their families and furpals, chasing many a ball and scratching many an itch. 

All is well in the Land of the Long White Cloud. I have finished my sled dog racing which we competed in during June and July and have a weightpull event coming up which I hope Ma will bring the Camerabeasty to take note of the happenings to share with you all. 

It is Winter here in New Zealand although it has been very mild. No snow for us, just sunny days and an absense of the normal sideways rain and horrendous windy horribleness. We have been very lucky but Ma has not been any more active so I have spent many a day cooped up inside enjoying the sunpuddles. 

We did visit the Grandma for a wee bit a few weeks ago and again we partook in many a lazy snuggle. 

A Labrador does love his lazing. 

There is nothing better then a snuggle with a loved one. This is your cue to give your loveyone a good old fashioned snuggle to get them through the week. 

Keep well

Another Publication

Howdy pals!

My friend Jewel is an amazing artist and you will see the two portraits that she has done of me for my Ma. She also put together an awesome book to present her recent work on her sled dog exhibition "Born to Run". My portrait is in there along with many other fuzzy faces you may recognise. 

Ma got a copy in the mail but I decided to have a flick through. Many of my pals are in there and looking pretty awesome! Hurrah all you awesome pals!! 

She does some wondrous work - please visit her website here and see all her great works of art - if you haven't already!

Full of the lurgy

Hello folks

Ma has been struck down by the lurgy and is full of snots and coughs. Being the good Koda I am I was right there making sure she got through it a-ok.

It was hard work, it really was. All that snugglycosyness and day long naps. Sigh!

Now she is back at work and comes home grizzling about a sore noggin and a huffy snooter. Whats a lad to do!?

Hope you are all happy and healthy.

Treasure Hunt


This is a portrait of yours truly by one absolutely wonderfully talented lass named Jewel who does fantastically cool coloured pencil pet portraits! Some of you may remember the portrait by Jewel that my Ma got done a couple of years back - see it here.

This portrait was completed off a photo taken while Ma and I were practicing for Weightpull. I am being extremely well behaved and was telling Ma that she is a mad hatter! Behind me which you cannot see is a 3 wheel rig loaded with tree stumps which Ma was trying to get me to pull. I told her to get her A into G and pull it herself!!

Anyhoo.... back to Jewel! You should all visit her website at and view the screeds of loverly artworks and the cooldoggies and kitties and horsies she has captured! You might even recognise a few fuzzy faces in there!

Keep warm!

A restful mornings doze

Howdy Pardnars!

It has been very chilly here in New Zealand lately and I have been in my Ma's room at nights on my bed. 

Ma got up and left me to doze this morning. 

She came back. 

I was in her bed. 

She got out, I got in. 

What would you puppers and kitties have done?
