Sourdough Rendezvous: The one-dog pull

DSC_0060 DSC_0061 DSC_0078A favourite event of the Sourdough Rendezvous is the one-dog pull. People bring their mightiest dogs and encourage them to pull a sled with dog food a few metres.

The winning dog keeps the food.

This kind of thing is fun for families, it’s very entertaining at little cost. A good reason to be outside an afternoon, bring out your dogs and cheer for the winner.
