How I have become a musher.
It´s been a long time but I still remeber the time at the basic school when everyone was collecting something either stamps, horses, pictures of actors,… and I was interested in something totally different – hoarding the pictures of dogs and wolves. I was a big „evil-doer“ at the local library but the enthusiasm for collecting excused me. My most favourite writer was Jack London and I had read the White Fang about ten times.I remember my first picture of the malamut dog in a magazine about dogs „Pes přítel člověka“ with an article about the first dogs of that type in our country. It was sometimes in 1984 and I was almost 13.
The time went by. I was living in the Jizera Mountains therefore as nearly everyone there I was doing the sports – cross country skiing, orienteering, triathlon, rock-climbing,…, as well as studying and preparing for the great career and future of the scientist. All this had been happening till 1997 when I bought my first husky miss dog Jovanka. The illusions of my fantastic scientific career dissapeared with her.

The beginnins of me being the dog´s mum were probably the same as everyone´s. My doggie was being spoilt and I was able to do all the unbelievable crazy tricks to please my honey. The result of it was the dog that has never wanted to run.

From my boss at work I got another two huskies – Růžena and Korča that stayed alone with very uncertain future after a death in a family. So they found their new home by me. I bought my first sled too. Only I kept wonderring how come that I have to always push so much by myself, and that´s why Heda came to us.

I was the beginner, self-learner, the soloist. I had no one to tell me do this or that or to share his knowledge and experiences. I found everything out by the well-known method of „try and fall“ that brought smashed and knocked knees, torn clothes but also the explorer´s feeling of delight .

Nowadays in 2009 I own 23 lovely dogs. One can say that my breed rises in a geometric row. In these days I run a husky school and taking part in lon distance sled dog races. I finish with my 8 dogs sled dog race Finnmarkslopet 500km in 2008 and with 14 dogs Finnmarkslopet 1000km, the world´s northernmost sled dog race, in 2009.
