SP Kennel prides itself on a dog-loving, dedicated kennel crew. We are very pleased to welcome two new additions for this 2012-2013 season.
Moira (left) comes to us from New Zealand. She volunteered for the Yukon Quest this past year and the Iditarod in 2010, so she is familiar with sled dog racing. Moira has her own four-legged companion at home, Lexie, a Gordon Setter, who did not make the long journey.
Meghan (right) comes to us from Minneapolis via the Denver Glacier (outside Skagway, Alaska.) She has several years of dog mushing experience and even comes with her own two fun-loving Alaskan huskies: Charlet and Tina Turner.
Why the new faces, you ask?
Well... Wes is still working in Afghanistan and Wendy is employed in Bangladesh. Ryne doesn't have quite as distant of an excuse. But, she can not be at the kennel daily since she is enrolled in five classes at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, has a part-time job and is starting her own small sled dog kennel. Bridgett now lives in Fairbanks (a little over an hour from the kennel) and is a full-time mommy and full-time nurse.
Any more questions?
