Road Trip!

That's right - SP Kennel's dog trucks are up and running! So yesterday, we loaded up both trucks with most of the Racing Dogs and the three mushers and drove 50 miles to the White Mountains National Recreation area. It was our first trip away from our local training trails. It was great. Now we just need a race to go to…


The Mid Day sun in Interior Alaska; Sunset at 2:42PM (Sunrise was at 10:47AM).


A motley crew wait for their mushers to get going - rear to front: Nelson, Waylon, Wedgy, Izzy, Scout (hiding), Beemer, Boondocks, Chipper; Traveling down the trail.


Patience at the trucks; Sisters - Quito and Chica looking pretty!

Yeah for a road trip; what fun. Horray for dog trucks running again. I would say no group of SPK dogs is a motley crew. Thanks for update & pictures.

Such fun for the racing dogs! And much needed, too, I would think.

Especially the youngsters who have never been in a competitive situation - tied to the truck waiting to be hooked up!

And then there are the "been there, done that" stances of the non-rookies.
