Words can't describe how happy I am for Allen and the dogs. CONGRATULATIONS! CONGRATULATIONS! CONGRATULATIONS! I let out a pretty loud whoop, but I don't think any of my co-workers noticed. Of course if they did, I'd be more than happy to tell them all about the awesomeness that is SP Kennel.

Fantastic job!!!!!! Thanks for such a quick post of photos.

I love seeing these sweet, nice people and their top-notch dogs win the Yukon quest! Shows that churning out puppies isn't necessary and you can do very well with a small kennel. Congratulations Allen!!

Go Allen -- the JayZ of mushing (to quote Hugh).

Does that make Aliy the Beyonce?

Congrats and best of luck in the Iditarod.

What a beautiful day celebrating Allen's success with his outstanding Black Team!! Everybody at SP Kennel can be so proud of the participating racing teams. Well done!! Continued success Aliy and Allen for the upcoming Iditarod!!

I have never posted a comment before but now must say that SP Black Team sure put on a fine race--and 2 years in a row, too. Congrats to Allen (and Hugh Neff, too) for an exciting race. We here at our home (in Maryland) were wondering and watching for the entire duration how this one would play out. The early Neff lead for so long a time but with Allen constantly playing the part of Neff's shadow, and then the see-sawing back and forth just kept the suspense going on and on.

Thanks, too, to SP Kennel crew for MUCH BETTER updates of the goings-on than the Quest site (which was frustrating).

FANTASTIC WEB COVERAGE

Instant gratification - that's the way I would describe the SP Kennel website service to those who support the 4 legged and 2 legged team members and support staff!

Thanks to all who make the arm-chair mushers/visitors here so pleasurable.
Nifty website and forward-looking - DOGS FIRST!!!
