A Few Get Left Behind

With three teams heading over to Whitehorse and all the excitement of the Quest we thought we would pay tribute to those that get left back at the kennel. They are just as important to the kennel for their own different reasons...

Puppies are the future, retirees pass on the knowledge and the unlucky few who don't make the teams this time are still in the frame for the rest of the season. They will stay home and enjoy some quiet time and get special attention from Wendy.

Here's a video we took last Friday of two of the "secrets" Lydia and Dutch enjoying some quality time inside with Grandma ChaCha.

Take a look back at the start of winter and see how tiny Lydia was back then... what a difference a few months make! Winter In Here!

Bless ChaCha, she was pretty patient with the puppy exuberance but then just had to go to Meghan and say "make them stop". Cute video, thanks for sharing it during this super busy time. All the best to the entire kennel and its support crew, whether at home in Two Rivers or along side you in the Yukon.
