We need your help! This little puppy needs a name! :D

If you've visited us in the past week, you may have met this little girl - a litter of one! She was born to Momma "Greystone" on June 7, 2015 and is joining us from the kennel of Paul Gebhardt. It was Paul's idea to have YOU help with naming... so please comment your ideas below.

The most "likes" will win! :D

** We will combine "likes" for names that are repeated... make sure to scroll through the comments and "like" them, too! :)

We'll keep this going until Friday, July 10th at 9am AKST - and let you know the winning name!

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
