Love the videos! thanks for all the effort to take and post them so quickly!. Happy Doggies and mushers working hard.I appreciate the work so much. The doggies barks, mushers voices and sled on snow is music to my ears and adds to the experience. Additional music not really needed. thanks for the extra work tho.
Quest look out here they come!

Everything about SP Kennel is first class! Everyone works so hard 24/7 - 365 days a year. The way you are able to include your fans in the experience deserves an award, it is phenomenal. It is obvious that everything you do is a labor of love. Corporate America should take lessons from you about building teams, those with four legs and two legs.

Ailey - you are going to get a real workout on March 5th.
Mandatory Mushers meeting at 9 AM
Meet and greet luncheon at 12 Noon
Banquet and drawing at 6 PM
Alaska Sports Hall of Fame award at 7:30 PM
All of this and trying to prepare for the March 7 start of the Iditarod. Whew!

Sweet Videos! :-)
Schmooooooowe, right back at ya buddy.
I love the team sleep pile at Meier's Lake, with a few athletes just a little too excited to rest.

Scruggs, with his face in the camera during the start, doesn't miss a step, no wonder he's a media favorite. We saw you Scruggs.
So many happy dogs. :-)

The videos are fantastic. Kudos to the kennel crew, no other mushers try to include their fans and keep us so well fed with wonderful info and videos. Best wishes for continued success.

At least the mushers will have smartphones now to keep better track of the four-legged Red and Black team members when not on the trail!

And the mandatory musher meeting and pasta loading should provide some good material for Aliy's thank you at the Sports Hall of Fame!!!

Woof, woof, woof!!!
