Visitors to the Kennel
We put a few hours aside Friday morning for Ben and his family to experience the second half of his Alaskan "Wish List". We learned so much more about Ben and the Pierce Family during their visit.
Ben did enjoy the dogs, the kennel and the idea of mushing. But, being an adventurous little boy from Texas he LOVED the ATV 4 wheeler the most. Allen taught him what all the shifting buttons and levers were for and he was delighted. Ben got to "drive" while we mushed the team several miles on the local trails. But, revving the engine (while in neutral) was certainly a highlight!
His other favorite activity was standing on the SP Kennel balcony overlooking the dog yard and the surrounding hills. Allen got him the kennel binoculars and Ben could see forever!
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner posted a story about his visit to Alaska this morning. You can read it HERE.
