Awesome job Allen!!!! Cant wait to hear the YQ wrap up on each dog and the insight of the trail from Allen's perspective. I'm sure today will be a well deserved "day off" for SPK....time to catch your breath before gearing up for the next big race a mere 17 days away!!!

Great run SPK Black Team. Thank you to the entire crew on a successful run. And thank you, Moira, for the updates along the way. Once again, you make us feel as if we are part of the action. Rest well all!

Great job! Congratulations, Alan, and to the entire team! What great dogs! Thanks for all the great updates so I could follow along the trail with you! Now on to some well deserved rest! Looking forward to following the next big run with Aliy and the Reds! Go dogs, go !!!

Congrats to the whole team including those off the trail. It takes a village. Great showing for these "younger" dogs and the future of the kennel. Love you gang!

Incredible journey - congrats Allen and team.

Lisa B said...

So proud to be a fan and watch Allen and the VERY LIVELY dogs finish the Quest. The team looked great, Allen was in good spirits, and the whole family was there. Thanks so much for all the coverage and posts you provided. Rest up, the next big dance is just a couple of weeks away and I look forward to cheering SP Kennel down the trail for another 1000 miles. Great job Black Team!

Cindy Schaus said...

Congratulations Black Team! Such a great accomplishment for all the dogs, but especially the young ones. I watched the finish video at least three times this morning. Amber was not finished, she wanted to goooooo! Ditto on looking forward to what Allen has to say about the trail and the dogs.

The photo of Izzy and Mismo ( maybe looking like they are wondering when they can get more treats) with Allen is a keeper. The team looked really, truly fantastic when they came in.

Yes indeed! Congratulations Allen, Mismo, Izzy, Commando, Junior, Spark, Dutch, Kodiak, Amber, Rodney, Champ, Felix, Chipper, Daisy and Nome.

We SP Kennel fans are so proud.

It seems unbelievable that in just 19 days Allen and most of these same dogs will be gathering right there in Fairbanks to set out for another 1000 mile trip heading west across Alaska. Hats off these amazing athletes!!!!

Moira you and all the team at SPK spoil us so very much! Your coverage of the race and the behind the scenes work of so many people is absolutely superb!!!
