Lhotse AKA Malarkey

Biggest Fear: The Lawn Mower
Lhotse is the official kennel mascot and namesake. He came with the name Melozi, which I slightly shortened and rebranded into the peak near Everest (Lhotse). However Jake kept bastardizing his original name as malarkey and because he's a dumb boy it just stuck. And here we are. He's a super sweet boy with a great work ethic, and has developed into one of my most reliable leaders. He finished both Copper Basin and Two Rivers 200 in lead for me.
