Meet the New Land 2013 skijor dogs.

Axel, male, named after Axel Heiberg Island, 4 years old.
Elle, female, named after Ellesmere Island, 4 years old.
Napu, male, named after a the lashing prong on an Inuit komatik dog sled, 7 years old.
Larry, male, named after another dog named Larry, 4 years old.
Larry, Elle (pronounced el-ee), and Axel are all from the same litter.

We are renting the dogs from a very nice musher in Iqaluit. She is thrilled her dogs are going to Ellesmere Island…and we are too.
