Later this month the Honkeytonk litter will turn seven!
The Honkeytonk litter is Lester, Scruggs, Boondocks, Waylon, Willie, Hank, Reba and Bubba. As you may have guessed, many of them got their names from Ole Time Country performers: Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs (who sang the Beverley Hillbillies theme song - I bet it's playing in your head right now huh?), Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams and Reba McIntyre. Boondocks and Bubba were names that Aliy came home with after a Spring visit to Allen's hometown in Arkansas.
Five of the litter still live at the kennel and are all phenomenal sled dogs. You can see their profiles on the Dogs page (click the red link). Hank now lives in Texas with Randy and D'Ann Chappel (remember Randy from the ChaCha story?), Reba lives with some friends who have a recreational kennel and Bubba spent some time in Whitehorse, Canada.
Let's take a quick look back to when they were puppies with these adorable pics from 2008.
L-R: Lester, Scruggs, Waylon, Boondocks and Hank.
