Anchorage BBQ Fundraiser

Bob and Jeanine Huston have been SP Kennel Sponsors for several years. Bob has made his way to many of the race starts and finishes, as well as helping out in Dawson City this season during the Yukon Quest 36 hour layover. Let's just say… Bob is handy with a shovel!


Bob Huston, Aliy and Allen enjoy the afternoon; Good food and good fun!

Bob convinced SP Kennel friends, Greg and Jeanette Wakefield, to host a hot dog and salmon BBQ / SP Kennel fundraiser this past Sunday at their gorgeous house overlooking Turnagain Arm in Cook Inlet. The afternoon was a perfect combination of awesome weather, dog stories, family fun and good food & drink. Thanks to everyone who attended!


Allen and Aliy with Greg & Jeanette Wakefield; Gorgeous!

The SP Kennel huskys were not up for a 700 mile round-trip drive in these warm summer temperatures. So, the dogs virtually "attended" the Anchorage function. Four large posters brought the dogs to life. SP Kennel long-time friend, Barbara Swenson, was there to introduce the SP Kennel canine crew to some new fans as well as pass out their photos and dog tags. What's a party with out dog tags??

Great weather for a party! Enjoying the pix of smiles. My dogs are a shedding mess....bet yours are too. Do you think your competition running dogs at high altitude, on a glacier, is giving their dogs a racing advantage? Get well, Aliy!
