Ketchikennels - Home * Sweet * Home

Ketchikennels - Home to 23 Alaskan Huskies and a musher from Ketchikan!

Here is a photo of my home for the time being. It is located 30 miles outside of Wasilla. I will be living in the blue shack. My dog truck is on the left and the dog yard with my 23 dogs is looking good. I had a friend who came to help me get settled. He put in all the dog poles and houses in a day for me. Friends are GREAT!

My team running in Skagway

video
Here are some of my Iditarod hopefuls running for our guests at Dog Camp today (10/18/10). My leaders were Bee and Hurley, my swing dogs, directly behind the leaders, were Allison and Angel. Then in order continuing on back from swing were: Chip, Dale, Rainy, Indigo, McGrath, Pierce, Athena, Svennie, Chop, Ronin, and finally the wheel dogs Stovepipe and Carmack. The dogs did a great job running today! It is so cool to see the progress that they have made over the summer. They are much stronger and the bond that they have with me is respect. I am so PROUD of them all!!

Heading North to Wasilla

Two more days of work left here in Skagway. I will be driving out of Skagway on the morning of September 22nd. I am excited to move on to my next chapter of training, but I will miss the great times spent here in Skagway . . .

"Bristol" Athlete of the Week September 12th-19th

Bristol is a funny dog. She loves people so much and is always wanting loves from them. She is 2 years old and full of life. Dogs on the other hand are not her favorite to be around. On the gang-line she is always screaming in the face of her partner next to her. I need to run her next to a male because females drive her crazy.
