The first leg of our journey home ended when the dogs and crew arrived safe and sound in Anchorage. The whole crew stayed at our home away from home at Clarion Suites then yesterday we went our separate ways - we said farewell to Mickey and Doug as they headed back to Florida and the trucks headed up the Parks Highway for home.

Meghan picked up Biscuit, Boris, Chemo, Dingle, Schmoe, Scooter, Scout, Scruggs and Tatfish from Margie's and we were excited to see them! They've been having a great time there and have been so well looked after. Thanks Margie!
We arrived home to a few inches of fresh snow and a yard full of puppies and the rest of the grown-ups eager to see us and us, them!

We wanted to say a big thank you to the city of Nome. The local businesses were very generous and the people so kind and friendly. Huge thanks also to Wes and Wendy who took care of everyone back here at the kennel; it was good to know they were in such good hands. We appreciate you so much!
We are going to take a few days to unpack, regroup and relax and get back to spring training which includes harnessing the puppies and stretching out the Iditarod dogs. There's also a couple more races on the calendar! We have lots to look forward to on the doglog including "Aliy Cam" from this year's Iditarod.
