The Craziness Has Begun

Welcome to The SP Kennel Dog Log!

Although Iditarod 2007 is over two weeks away, SP Kennel is hopping! On Tuesday, Febuary 6, Aliy and Allen took 48 dogs into Fairbanks to have EKGs and Blood Drawn to make sure they are as healthy as they can be heading down the trail. The results have come back and we are very pleased. On Monday, February 12, we brought 1541 pounds of dog food, people food and gear for Aliy and her dogs into the drop point to be sent out over the trail. Allen's weighted a bit more at 1634lb. This weekend, Dr. Jean Battig of Chena Ridge Veterinary Clinic will be heading out to the kennel to give physicals for all the dogs possibly heading out on the race. She will be checking a minimum of 40 dogs.
