Raptor

Chuchinka’s Raptor

October 30, 1997 – May 23, 2013 Raptor was our 1st real lead dog. He came to us from Karen and Mark Ramstead as a leader to help train the engine litter. He wasn’t flashy in any way, but was a solid reliable dog who along with Hugi helped train our current leaders, Diesel, Duramax and Hemi . He was on the aloof side, not one for snuggles. We affectionately called him “pig pen” as he always seemed to be in the dirt. He looked great after a bath, but it never lasted long. We knew this day was coming. Regardless, these days are never easy. Missing you Raptor.

Raptor came to us from Karen and Mark Ramstead, North Wapiti Kennels, when he was 4 years old. He was one of the final cuts from Karen’s 2000 Iditarod team. Raptor is a steady, dependable sled dog that ran lead for us for many years. He¬†taught us a lot about training and conditioning a mid-distance team.
