New SP Kennel Team Member

We have more exciting news at SP Kennel!

With all the great SPK racing dogs and the big plans for this season, Allen and Aliy decided they need some kennel help. This season - wearing the Red and Black - will be our newest SP Kennel Team Member: Ryne Olson.

Ryne comes to us from Colorado via a summer stint on a glacier dog mushing operation in Southeast Alaska. She seems to be right at home in a small Two Rivers cabin, sleeping with two dogs and working with SP Dogs all day long.

Welcome Ryne...What a nice name! I'm sure this experience will be so valuable for you. We will all be looking forward to seeing more of you on this website.

Aliy, Will Brigette and/or Ryne be racing this season for SPKennels?

Also I looked for the newsletter and can't seem to find it now.

The HOWLER newsletter had a technical hiccup and will be posted again.

The goal is to run and race every SP K dog this season - that's what they love to do.

So, Bridgett can only leave Nome (and her job) once in a while, I hope she can do the SM 150 and CB 300. That leaves the possibility for Ryne to race in the YQ300. So, we'll see.
