Our Dogs, Our Life

Every sled dog kennel is different.

But, ironically, the dogs usually match the personality of the owner. 

 Sled dogs pick up the personality of the place

And pick up on the pace of the place.

We've worked real hard over the years to have a quiet, easy going kennel.

One where quiet and consideration of others is key.

 Consideration for others is key

Because, after all, they aren't the only rodeo in town.  

We have other farm animals who need their peace and quiet too.

But once in a while, we get one that breaks the mold.

And is so happy to be here, they can't keep their feet on the ground.

 So happy they cannot keep their feet on the ground

The others watch, as if seeing a shadow of their former image.

 A shadow of their former image

Of days gone by.

Until tomorrow, always God willing...
