Born: June 6th, 2001

Crunchie is another one of those dogs that it is hard to write a bio about. There are just not words to describe how I feel about him. Being the first born son of my all time favorite dog (Grover) certainly had him a spot in my heart the moment he was born, but Crunchie wasn't content to just 'inherit' my affection - he insisted on earning it - and earn it he has.

Crunchie has been a fixture in my team since the 03/04 season. He has never been dropped from any team he has been on. He is a constant workhorse. They just don't come any more dependable and capable.  To top that off Crunch decided that being in the show ring wasn't such a back deal either - finishing his Championship with a Group 2nd placing from the classes just weeks after finishing his 3rd Iditarod. In my mind, the living embodiment of the breed.
