It's beginning to look a lot like ... Winter!

Much of the U.S. has had a late arrival of Spring/Summer and Interior Alaska is no exception. Low temperature records and late snow storms seem to be the norm. At the kennel, we had a light dusting of fresh snow last night - compared with 4 to 6 inches in the eastern interior of the state or perhaps feet in the Denali area - we got off easy!

The dogs are still dressed in their winter coats. Often we find them laying curled up on the frozen ground - insulated by their thick husky parkas. In late afternoon, when the sun shines at its peak, a dog might lounge around on the roof of his or her house. Basking in the cool sunshine.
