Handler Mel and helper Bruno drove the dogs down to Anchorage yesterday, where they met up with Bossman Jeff and Kristin Bacon at our sponsor Inlet Tower. Jeff will be running the "A" team, and Kristin will be running 11 Husky Homestead dogs along with "Felon" from Bacon's Acres' Kennel who came from Husky Homestead and is part of the "Crimes & Misdemeanors" litter. ;)
Thanks to Kristin for snapping these pics and sharing with us!

'Tis the season that things begin to slow down in the mushing world... but one thing many kennels are doing about this time is to start harness breaking some of the younger puppies and taking them on some short runs.

Isn't this fun?!?

"I came up with my family for a 14 day Alaskan adventure and this excursion was by far my favorite! Holding the puppies and being nuzzled by the older dogs was truly magical. I hope I will be able to come back again soon. Had such a great time. Thanks so much." - E. Schilling – Wisconsin
