Here is a story from SP Kennel. The photos didn't show up. :(

But you can find them and the story here. http://www.spkenneldoglog.blogspot.com/ and also an up-date about the fire litter and how they are doing.


Visitors to the Kennel

A local dog musher contacted us last week about a special boy who was coming to Alaska. We learned that Ben was going through some hardships in life and most of all he wanted to see the Northern Lights and mush sled dogs. Of course, we thought "Who doesn't?"

We put a few hours aside Friday morning for Ben and his family to experience the second half of his Alaskan "Wish List". We learned so much more about Ben and the Pierce Family during their visit.

Ben did enjoy the dogs, the kennel and the idea of mushing. But, being an adventurous little boy from Texas he LOVED the ATV 4 wheeler the most. Allen taught him what all the shifting buttons and levers were for and he was delighted. Ben got to "drive" while we mushed the team several miles on the local trails. But, revving the engine (while in neutral) was certainly a highlight!

His other favorite activity was standing on the SP Kennel balcony overlooking the dog yard and the surrounding hills. Allen got him the kennel binoculars and Ben could see forever!

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner posted a story about his visit to Alaska this morning. You can read it below.

Such a sad but very inspiring story. Kudos to this boy and his family for putting the best face on a bad situation and to SP Kennel for stepping in to help make his Alaska experience one to remember.
