A huge thank you to
Franklin School for asking us over on December 12th
to provide a sled dog education and experience. They
especially requested Yahboo, our big black Yukon as
her heritage from the Yukon fits that of Buck from
'Call of the Wild' a Jack London book that the kids
just finished reading. We also want to thank Jeff
and Beverly from Franklin Animal Animal Shelter for
being there to accept donations from the kids and
Valley Snow Dogz. 4 kids got to ride with us, a
couple of other kids will be joining us this winter.
The kids received a hands on experience of real sled
dogs and some got to experience them as we made
loops around their running track. At the same time
as giving our talk and demo, the school, kids and
Valley Snow Dogz made a wonderful donation of
goodies to the shelter. We appreciated the reporters
who were there too and to everyone who made this
morning so incredibly special and memorable...not
forgetting our amazing dogs who touch our lives
every minute of the day.
