When Spicy was a racing dog, Greg and Vivian from Atlanta were her sponsors. They always kept in touch via cards and letters ~ even after Spicy’s retirement. Unfortunately they never got to meet Spicy at SP Kennel before she went home to New Zealand with Moira.
Last week Greg and Vivian were in New Zealand as part of an Australia/New Zealand cruise so Moira, her Dad and Spicy took a trip up to Auckland to meet them! They took in a local beach, an extinct volcano views of the city and a walk in the park.
We love when our dog sponsors get to meet “their dog” and we’re so happy Greg and Vivian got to meet Spicy. They really went “the extra mile” for her!
Thank you to ALL of our dog fans, sponsors and team members. Your contributions and enthusiasm for the entire SP Kennel philosophy is outstanding. We could go on and on about ALL of you, but let’s just say that the personal attention that our dogs receive from you is spectacular.
And if you were wondering… Yes… when we receive biscuits and dog treats in the mail ~ they are personally passed out (YUMMY)~; when a dog receives a Love Letter from a Fan ~ there is immediately a ‘Dog of the Day’ ~ when a dog gets a special bone delivery ~ he or she enjoys the tasty treat!~ The dogs are the reason we are dog mushers. This isn’t just a saying or phrase… it’s the SP Kennel truth.
- For the Racing Dogs and Yearlings: big, little or medium edible dog treats, real bones, rigid chew toys
- For the Puppies: Rigid and Semi tough chew toys and smaller edible treats
- For the Mature Dogs: Softer treats (not everyone has all their teeth)
- For the Special Needs Dogs: Squeaky toys are okay (these dogs are always supervised with toys), dog beds, blankets or cushions
After the holidays, we will post a list and some photos of the dogs with their presents.
