P.S.
Poquita is so graceful! Every one of the Black Team members deserves a hug, including the three in the truck!!! And I'm sure they'll get more than one each!

A well deserved congratulations to Allen, the Black Team, and the SPKennel support crew. What a fantastic job you folks did winning the 2014 YQ. Our prayers are with Brent and family and hope for a speedy recovery.

Congratulations to Allen and the Black Team. Quito and Scruggs? Question: Did Mac Daddy have to wear short dog leggins'? Or did Boondocks have to wear tall dog leggings"? Regardless wonderful race and excellent sportsmanship. Good luck to Aliy in Iditarod. Will be cheering her on as usual.

I love Quito - I love all the SPK dogs but Quito sure deserves the love she's getting in this photo - what a talented dog. Allen had a plan, he stuck to it and gave fantastic dog care. The dogs kept up their speed and through a combination of a lot of things the Black Team ran a great race - of course they're going to be found at the front of the pack! Happy for you all and congratulations.

Beautiful Quito!! Good Dogs!!!

Congratulations to our Black Team on this Yukon win. You met the race with grit and the unfortunate events with Brent with sportsmanship and friendship.

Now time to get some well deserved rest and regroup.

Lovely interview at end of the trail .. I was looking over past results. I did not go back too far in the history, but it looks like Allen broke his own record this year, and that with taking it easy the last leg.

Am I right about that?
