Statement from Blayne “Buddy” Streeper – Streeper Kennels Canada. 7x defending PEDIGREE Stage Race Champion.
For the last 20 years racing sled dogs has been my life, my dream and my passion. I have been blessed with a great family and father, who has allowed me a unique opportunity to pursue my goals. It has been remarkable satisfying to share my love of dogs and sport with my father and now my wife Lina Streeper.
Lina has been a key member of our kennel and team for the last 10 years. She and I have built our life around our daughters and animals, and now is the time for Lina to have her opportunity to compete with our best athletes.
I am excited and nervous of my new role as manager, but feel 100% confident with the decision, Terry, Lina and myself have made.
Good Luck to my fellow mushers and friends, and I am looking forward to 2017 Pedigree Stage Stop Race.
