Break-up means a few different things here at the kennel.
Spring break-up on a fast track in Two Rivers with the snow nearly all melted. The yard has been very damp and “Mud season” is upon us. Allen has a water pump draining various lowland sections of the yard so that everyone has a dry spot to spend the sunny afternoons.
Break up also means our crew has dispersed around the globe. Ruth has returned home to Norway to her husband and dogs. As she reports, winter still has a hold of northern Scandinavia. Chris is now living above Juneau on a glacier for another summer introducing tourists to the love of dog sledding.
Moira is now home in New Zealand after taking a few days to visit Oklahoma City to watch some NBA basketball (as the Thunder’s starting centre is a Kiwi!) She is now beginning yet another season of winter!
Aliy and Allen are currently in the lower 48 visiting with family. They left the kennel for a week in the trustworthy hands of Wendy and Wes; as well as good friends and hard workers: the Earle Girls. Thank you guys for “holding down the fort”.
Break-up also means that activity here on the DogLog will slow down. Thanks for being with us through this racing season, we have enjoyed bringing you coverage of racing and training. There is one more “Aliy Cam” video from the 2017 Race and she is also working on a long over due ‘Race Recap’.
We will try to bring you some interesting happenings from around the kennel and elsewhere over the summer. Keep checking back occasionally to see what we are up to, and remember, everything ramps up again in September and October!
