Hips: A, Elbows: 0, Eyes: free (Oct. 2007 & April 2009)
The winter 2008/2009 was her first working season and during the winter she has attended 5 working dog test and she has passed all 5: 2 x Working dogs test 1 (2x30km), 1 x A-test (1 x 10km single dog test) and 2 x D-test (110 km at the Malamute week and 1 x 175 km at the Polardistance)
She will have to pass one of the tests again during the 2009/2010 season to complete the Swedish Polar Championship, because the rules require that the tests are done over 2 working seasons.
She has only attended a couple of shows and she has obtained a couple of CK (=champion quality). We could wish she had a little more bone – she is a little light in the body and could have just a little more coat, but she sure compensate with her great movements in the ring!Wixen is a real working dog – the best time for her is in the harness in front of either the pulka or sledge - single or on a team does not matter to her ; she enjoys to run. The fun of her life is running
