Winter Howler is Here!

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of the SP Kennel Howler newsletter.

We recap the successful Copper Basin 300 race and look forward to the Yukon Quest, starting this weekend in Whitehorse.

The spotlight this month is on Chica, who was named Allen's Most Valuable Dog during the CB300. She's an unsung hero and she deserves the spotlight for a while. She would hate it if she knew, she's not one to seek the limelight!

We introduce Verizon as a new SP Kennel Lead Sponsor and let you know about the in-store Meet and Greet in Anchorage in February.

Great Howler!! Always a good read! I love Ms Chica....living in the shadows of her sister Quito has to be difficult....if she only knew! Good thing Chica is happy being herself and we all love her for that! I'm as SO excited about the YQ races this weekend!! The CB300 was an awesome start....keep the momentum going!!

Chica = gorgeous, talented, hard working, and willing to let the others do the media interviews. She knows the meaning of team.
I'm so happy she was honored by Allen's choice as MVD.
Mac is amazing, eat, rest, work the food off, look for more food and rest again, cuz he wants to be ready to work more.
Chica's "Five Pups" will certainly impress us, the same as they have won our hearts. They don't give up!
Good luck and safe travels on the QUEST Allen, Chica and teammates.
Keep those plans ready and don't make up new ones while you're sleep deprived :-)

Smart choice Verizon. We all love the Royal Family of Mushing!!!

I don't know how you do it! You serve exactly the right amount of the right stuff for all of us so hungry to know more more more, at the time when you are so busy. Thank you. If I could be there to help in any way, I would. Otherwise we at our house will remain tuned in, dialed in, focused on, sending the warmest, strongest thoughts to you, and every member of the team.

Thanks so much for the Winter Howler. Dittos to above comments. SPK is the absolute best. CHICA is such a fantastic dog. Her litter of puppies this year are balls of fire. Go Allen & Black Team & go Aliy & Red Team. Bring two more victories home.
