Unlike my first 3 dogs' names, the name 'Echo' doesn't mean anything in Hebrew. I named her 'Echo' because I wanted her to follow in Mayah's footsteps as Alpha (which she showed signs of doing after the first 4 months of having her), and because she howls every time you say her name. Echo is almost too smart for her own good. She is my left lead dog. She's a very dedicated sled dog, and that started right away. I entered her in her first race when she was 10 months old, and has continued to excel with each run.
