You've probably noticed that I try to bring you something "a little different" on Sundays, and today's video certainly fits that description.
Clearly, most of the footage you've ever seen here of the dogs has been of them either running in harness, getting ready to run, frantically trying to be picked to go run or some other enthusiastically active behavior.
There is another side to daily life at the Kennel, however, and it is dramatically less energetic. The dogs do, after all, spend a fair amount of time resting and sleeping, eating, playing with their neighbors and hanging out at -- or most often on -- their houses.
As you might imagine, there are many, many dogs in a sled dog neighborhood, and pretty much any time of the day or night you can expect to hear dogs somewhere in the area. Sometimes, the dogs of SP Kennel can be seen listening to the chit-chat from their canine neighbors and spontaneously responding with a little "over the back fence gossip" of their own.
I recently found this little piece of video footage on Aliy's "pocket camera" and thought you might enjoy a glimpse of something "a little different" in the life of an SP Kennel dog.
