Redpaw

It's Wednesday Redpaw Fans! We have a great update from Jeff King and the gang. Read below to see what they are up to this Summer :)

With the passing of the Summer Solstice, and Iditarod 2016 sign-ups today…. everyone here at Husky Homestead feels the tug of an impending fall season approaching. The fireweed has begun blooming, the dogs are being trained daily and exercise schedules are being formulated. We do love our summer and all that it brings… but bring on the winter!

The Iditarod Volunteer Picnic and Sign ups are held at the Iditarod Headquarters in Wasilla. It is a huge event with dozens of mushers and hundreds of volunteers expected. This year the picnic will be tempered with the sadness that follows weeks of loss due to a wildland fire that has taken the homes of several long-time Iditarod mushers. I am taking my Bobcat skid steer to the affected area for volunteer clean up for those in need, and those ready to start rebuilding.

I am proud to announce the marriage of my daughter Tessa king to Clint Taggart! A wonderful ceremony and celebration was had here in Denali this past weekend with 'Redpaw' dogs from Husky Homestead whisking the bride and groom away for a musher/dog lover send-off to start their new life together! The dogs looked pretty sharp with their red bandannas on… if only we had some of those awesome Redpaw capes we’ve seen other teams sporting! Check out the fun video of the take-off… and yes, I was the one who made that giant cake for the top.

Cheers,
Jeff

You may have heard about the recent fire activity here in Alaska: the Sockeye Fire in the Willow area, and now the Card Street Fire that has begun spreading in the Kenai Peninsula near Sterling.

These locations are home to many mushers (both well-known and lesser known or recreational teams), and other families. These are truly tragic circumstances, and our thoughts are with all of those who have been affected by these fires, and those that are working tirelessly to help those who have been affected.

We haven't introduced you to these guys and gals yet! Although those of you that have visited us this summer have met, cuddled and squished them!

Meet the "Things We Have Launched into Space Litter"! This was a joint breeding with our good friends Jodi & Dan from Dew Claw Kennels - their "BedBug" is the Mom & our "Bailey" is the Dad. Jodi & Dan have been kind enough to let us keep these cuties for a while to begin their "training" - you know, the socialization part! ;)

Did you cuddle one of these cuties on a visit?
