Banshee, UP 200, Marquette (photo by TJ)

Life is like a dog sled team. If you ain’t the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

We met Banshee at the start of the UP 200 sled dog race in Marquette on February 19. The 9-year old Alaskan Malamute is the event mascot and a goodwill ambassador for the sport, traveling to schools and making public appearances with her “Dad” and spokesperson Todd Hennigan.

Read more about Banshee at the old UP 200 site; follow her adventures on her own Facebook page.



  1. Banshee made me chuckle out loud! What a wonderful fellow! 🙂

    When my folks lived in Skandia, Dad helped out with the start of the race and always had such great tales afterwards. Wonder if he ever met Banshee!?!?

    Thanx for the photo, TJ!

    • She’s a cool dog. Visits a lot of school kids…. And puts up with that wacky outfit!

  2. I am laughing out loud. This dog has a great fashion sense (let’s just go with that)

  3. I was going to wear that same outfit that day…so glad I didn’t 😉

  4. Banshee is the coolest! What a pup! Great photo, Kath.
