Our Dogs Our Life

Every sled dog kennel is different.

But, ironically, the dogs usually match the personality of the owner.

And pick up on the pace of the place.

We've worked real hard over the years to have a quiet, easy going kennel.

One where quiet and consideration of others is key.

Because, after all, they aren't the only rodeo in town. 

We have other farm animals who need their peace and quiet too.

But once in a while, we get one that breaks the mold.

And is so happy to be here, they can't keep their feet on the ground.

The others watch, as if seeing a shadow of their former image.

Of days gone by.

Until tomorrow, always God willing...

Those pictures just warm my heart. What beautiful, contented and loved dogs! Nothing could be better. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Sandy. They are all wonderful dogs... Our tour folks always marvel at how Russ can hush the entire barking kennel with one phrase..."That's enough...", said in a calm voice. They stop and you can hear a pin drop. Sometimes for a minute...sometime for only seconds...because they are excited to run. But they do hush. Good dogs...;)
