In the fall, I wrote a post about Polka, a large, traditional female Alaskan Husky working for Voyager Outward Bound School in Ely, MN. She had been bred to Phoenix and we were extremely excited about this breeding and waited in anticipation to hear if the breeding took.
We found out that in December, not too long after the breeding, she was taken to the vet to investigate an issue with her hind legs. They discovered a dangerous uterine infection and Polka had to undergo an emergency spay. It was very unfortunate and sad that they discovered that the breeding did indeed take and due to the immediate need to save Polka's life, the puppies were lost.
The happy news is that Polka is better and happier than ever. She continues to be a sled dog ambassador for Voyager Outward Bound School.
