Adventurous Rookie – Linda Pierce

By: Jerry Bath

Linda resides at the base of the North Cascades in Okanogan, Washington. Linda was given a great opportunity and an easy decision to train in Seeley, Lake Montana. Where she installed a kennel, complete with an electrical outlet for her trailer and has  been there since December 14th.

Her training started with minimal snow then the storm over the holidays dumped 48” of snow in 48 hours. Followed by rain, fog, power outages, downed trees and additional snow, sometimes all in the same day. Of course back home it was sun and good trails.

Linda will be showing up ready to race and has her team in great shape despite losing a few key dogs due to minor freak injuries. She says they will be back but wants to give them more time off so they will be racing again in two weeks.

It’s so exciting to have new blood come to the Eukanuba Classic with strong competitive teams such as hers.

Welcome aboard Linda!
