I’ll admit it, I fell in love with Swing because of his reddish coloring and semi-floppy ear. Swing, and his brother Foxtrot, came from Sylvain Robillard and Manon Moore’s kennel in Quebec, when after 25 years they decided to sell all their dogs. Having raced with Sylvain and Manon, I didn’t know too much about their dogs but I did know their team was friendly, fast, and trained to be loose.

Swing is much calmer than his brother Foxtrot, and has spent the summer suffering next to Zippo’s antics. An earnest dog, Swing requests attention by standing near you and staring. Swing is a beautiful big boy and I can’t wait to see how he does this season in the team.
