Shiloh Becomes a Sled Dog

First hook up of a sled dog

This winter, a transformation took place at our sled dog kennel.

Shiloh, a package of beauty and brains, began a new life at our kennel.

Our kennel has been stagnant for a while.

I liked the fact that nothing had changed for the last year.

The dogs felt cohesive and secure – knowing they were a family that wasn’t being altered in any way.

Thank you Jennifer and Linda. Jennifer ~ You mention the howling and the look of wisdom in your late husky's eyes. Perhaps that is why we relate to them so well - they drag us into nature with every howl. Your husky will remain in your heart forever, as will those of ours who have passed on in late life. Linda ~ thank you for the kind words. You, too, are surrounded by many beautiful "models" and understand how exuberant a new dog becomes after their very first run (and every run thereafter...). It's a wonderful life for a sled dog in an active running kennel.

My goodness what awesome photos! They are magnificent-- nice to have such a beautiful model, but the photographer's eye and skill is quite apparent! Have fun with Shiloh and the rest.... Thanks! Linda

Congrats on a beautiful new addition. Your article has made me teary eyed however, I miss our beloved husky. He passed on at 16 years about a year ago. He will always be top dog. In fact our 'doggy- dynamics' went haywire when his peacefully ruling presence departed. Our other dogs are not huskies- and although I love them too- they don't howl and they lack wisdom in their eyes. But in there defense- one benefit to Not having a husky- I don't have to keep them tethered :/ Keep us updated oh Shiloh !
