Zappa (2006-2013)

During his first year with me, Zappa was “Puppy Boy." Still, though he had some difficulties at times, he made the main Iditarod team. In fact, there were times out on the trail I thought seriously about putting his puppy enthusiasm into lead. Since Iditarod and that first season, the pup has mostly grown up. I started putting Zappa in lead during the 2011-2012 season and he did well. Always good for a hug, Zappa is very affectionate.
