While much of the training focus is on the dogs that will be racing in the 2014 Iditarod-preparation for 2015 begins now.  These puppies are now four months old and LOVE to run and play.  

The two litters are within a week of each other.  The Avenger Puppies consist of Wonder (wonder woman), Natiri, Stark, Thor, Hawkeye, Flash, and Shadow (White Shadow).  There might have been a small bit of creative liberty taken with the names.

The Genius Puppies are called Plato, Newton, Einstein, Mozart, Currie, and Patia (short for Hypatia).

These 13 puppies have Team Baker running fast and making us very excited for 2015!


  1. What? No Hulk? (just joking) I also believe Twain should be part of the Genii's'. Mark Twain...just his wit was pure genius as well as entertaining. Just a thought.

    Thanks Katherine (and Nick) for keeping us informed. I can't wait to see which of these pups makes it for the 2015!
