Baby It’s Cold Outside: Dressing For Success at -20

Posted · Add Comment

When we travel the trail, the cold licks our faces as if it were the very dogs who pull us. It’s kisses are not gentle and slowly sting any part of us that remains exposed. We wear parka’s and neck gaiters, hats and long underwear to stave off its slow advances. We are undeterred by the cold […]

Travis Is Signed Up For The 2015 Knik 200

Posted · Add Comment

I sleep on the couch and wake covered in animals. Max jams himself in between me and the backrest, sprawling halfway on top of me. He is a heavy sleeper and, unlike most dogs, doesn’t fidget during the night and keeps me warm when the fire in the wood stove goes out. On my chest […]


Dog Of The Week: Zema

Posted · Add Comment

If you asked me to pick a dog that embodies the spirit of our kennel, I would without a doubt choose Zema. Zema is one of the smallest dogs in our kennel but though she is small she is mighty. She is the little engine that could. And does. And does again. She is one […]


Book Review: A Dog’s Purpose

Posted · Add Comment

One of the things people are most surprised to learn is that we don’t have cable. Although we do have television and an active Netflix subscription, we don’t spend much time watching it. When we do have time to relax, we enjoy reading. Travis read and re-reads mushing books and I read just abouth anything […]

Willie Charlie is a bit nervous but a fantastic athlete

Dog Of The Week: Willie-Charlie

Posted · Add Comment

Willie-Charlie Most dogs have one name but Willie-Charlie isn’t most dogs. When we picked Willie up as a young pup in 2011 he was extremely skittish. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with Travis or I. When Travis went to load Willie into the truck the first time, Willie bit Travis’ finger. At the time, […]

Visiting Woody’s Thai Kitchen: A Little R&R

Posted · Add Comment

Travis came home for a few days of R&R for both him and the dogs. Saturday was the famous “Polar Bear Jump” in Seward — a well-known fundraiser for cancer research. We went down to watch folks plunge into the harbor and were surprised at the lack of crowd. In years past, it seemed that […]
