How satisfying this win must be for SP Kennel - ChaCha must be so proud of all her children and grand children (6 of 11 finishers on this Black Team)!!!

There is a wonderful portrait of Allen and his two best girls in the News Miner. Poquita shows her elegant profile and Olivia vamps it up (and Allen looks really happy and tired)!!!

Doesn't get much better than that...
History in the making!

We are SO proud of you all! What a fantastic team- humans and dogs.
Congratulations particularly to Allen and There-Ain't-No-Quit-In-Quito. Savour the victory. We will also be doing a Happy Dance! We are just SO SO proud!

Like Allen said, SPK Black found their 27 seconds and then some. Well done! Celebrate and get some rest. Or vice versa.

Fantastic race!! A win by an hour & a half is so much better than missing a win by 26 seconds!! Congrats, Allen, dogs, & SPK support team. Job well done!!
