Dog Sled Racing!

It's not quite what you'd expect! There was a lack of snow, they weren't just huskies and their sleds were more like scooters. 

It was drizzling for the most part and sometimes the dogs forgot to take the corner and ended up tangled in the taped barriers. 

On the last straight someone had their German Shepherd right up against the fence and the dogs kept getting distracted (and the person only moved the dog after the race had finished... Seriously rude!) 

The faces the dogs were pulling were super funny! 

Christchurch ICEFEST is on now - they are screening outdoor movies too, we are going to one next Sunday at 8pm!

Here are some of the photos we took! 

Enjoy!
