Lynne Danielson has been Rose's Sponsor for most of the years that Rose has been racing. Lynne has even been in the incredible position some years to watch Rose as she competes in the Iditarod. Just last year, Lynne was a volunteer in the village of Kaltag!
Lynne and her granddaughter, Kyleigh, came up to the kennel and brought Rose back home with them. So far the reports from the home front are that Rose and her new canine and human companions are doing well.
Anyhow, as the puppies become the center of the excitement at the kennel, some of the veteran dogs are leaving us. It is sad in some sense. For me to say to some of my best canine buddies "thank you for all you've given me, now go have fun in the rest of your life". BUT - if they all stayed here at SP Kennel, we would need a heck of a couch! When an SP Kennel dog is retired from racing, their new home must be a perfect match. Lynne and Rose certainly fit the bill!
So... "Thank You Rose!"
Lynne gives Rose some old fashioned loving; Rose explores her new driveway.
