Clyde is FANTASTIC!

He caught a flight from Unalakleet and arrived into Nome last night. He had been well looked after in Unk, in fact maybe TOO well looked after as he had put a little weight on! We heard reports that he was a real favourite with the team there as he was so friendly and sweet, and he ate everything he was offered.

Today Aliy, Chris and Bridgett took small teams of the most energetic dogs for a run today back up the coast and Clyde wanted to go!! Aliy’s verdict when they got back: “There are some attitudes on those dogs right now!”

  • Clyde AND Aliy it is so wonderful to see your smiling faces. Thanks so much for the pictures. Welcome to Nome Clyde boy!

  • Yahoo!!! Clyde is back and doing GREAT!! I was getting worried! Bet he was happy to see the crew and his Kennel Mates!

    Nice you got to take some dogs on a little stretch out run up the coast…looks like a gorgeous day!

  • Thanks for the update. Clyde certainly knows how to handle a photo shoot. What a great picture with Aliy.

  • Glad all is well and all have recovered. I am so proud of Aliy and Allan and all the dogs. Know prayers still be laid in the throne room for you all and wishing you safe travel back home. Enjoy the banquet on Sunday!

  • Just magic Aliy, fantastic run this year. These darn Seavey's get in the way all the time.
    Apart from you having a horrendous experience on the trail, you seem to be a contender. I salute you tenacity and resolve to carry on. So well done to you and your dogs. Admiration sent heart felt from the UK.

  • Love these pix!!!

    Thanks so much for letting us know Clyde is OK for sure – so he didn't lose his appetite?

    And the "Let's Play" pose is fantastic!!!

    WOOF, WOOF, WOOF!!!

    Best,

  • Pamela from Colorado. Yeah CLYDE!!!!! Isn't it marvelous how animals live in the moment,always positive and moving forward. So happy he is fantastic.

  • Love it that the dogs are feeling sassy and ready for more! Great that you're getting out on some runs while you count down to the banquet. I'm sure sleeping, eating, sleeping, eating, cheering in an incoming musher, sleeping, some visiting, and more sleeping are great but I'll bet time with the dogs rates as the most fun!

  • So glad Clyde is doing well! You have been a favorite musher among my students as we have followed the race over the last 6 years. You have been in our thoughts and prayers through your trip. Thank you for being an inspiration to many!

  • Very good boy…

    He & miss m stretch the same…

    We can go back to work on our cabin now … While tracking the other important racers to the red lantern … Tnx SPK…

  • Way to go Clyde! After that mean snow machine hit you, we were all worried but you have recovered and we are all more thankful than can be imagined. Aliy's smile is what we are all feeling. Enjoy yourself and eat and play with your 'family' again. Have fun. You are a resilient and strong athlete and will run more races for SP Kennel. Love and sorrow going out to Jeff King and family for having to say goodbye to Nash. Lots of love to both Aliy and Jeff for having to live through such a nightmare. But like someone said in an earlier post – do what the dogs do – kick some dirt and grass on that sh– and run off to join the excitement of another day. Thank you for these great posts. I enjoy the stories, the updates, the pictures. Thank you for sharing this time with us. Red and Black teams were both inspirational this year – both champion teams in my book. Shining examples of what dogsled racing should look like. Good for all of you. Cheering and congratulations from Minnesota – wish I could be at the upcoming banquet to personally congratulate you.

  • Soo very happy to see Clyde and Aliy smile. Great he could come up to Nome instead of all the way to Anch. Thank you for sharing these special moments : dog- fun- run after the race. It snowed so much here! Dogs smile for you and your smiling dogs.

  • Tears are in my eyes and I can hear that song playing in my head, "Put me in coach……." and ready to play he is written all over his face. The smile on Aliy's face and the look on Clyde's face is priceless and indescribable. Thank you for the updates!
