Dawson Dog Camp

We say farewell to the team at 7.09 this morning and I'll get pictures / video to you as soon as I can. In the meantime take a look at the Dawson Dog Camp.

It took a little over two hours to transform our campsite into a luxury camp with arctic oven tent for the handlers and wood-framed, open-ended, straw-lined tent for the athletes. We take you on a guided tour below.


Before, during...


... and after

Oh what great memories this brings back.

I hope Aliy shoveled the Facilities chute herself. I had to do it last year and it was 100 yards long and then we never used it!

Oh and the doggy sleeping bags Wendy made look great!

Wow, the dog camp in awesome. It put a smile on my face to see how they all like to sleep snuggled in a blanket or not. Shows their personalities. Dogs are great!!! I will always be amazed at how the dogs are treated and taken care of...Doggie day spa style :) AND...It's so nice to see that Taco is getting a rest. Own bale of straw and blanket. was concerned that Taco would not have made it to Fairbanks without a good rest. thanks for taking care of Taco ;)

Go Black Team Go!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved how Meghan said it was comforting to know the dogs were near by resting ... sweet give and we take succor and simple comfort.

Impressive, cozy camp. I especially like the wood frame for the dog tent. Love seeing the dogs get care and TLC that fits each one's personalities.
