Happy Birthday, Neil!
Neil can't be with us on his birthday but will join us again soon when he and his mother arrive for the holidays in December. We are looking forward to their arrival!
As usual, our projects are never ending when Neil is here and we'll be kept busy with holiday activities, developing a new slide show presentation for our winter events, training the dogs, preparing the curriculum for our winter adventures and cutting dog sledding trails up on our northwoods parcel. Another fun addition to the winter is our plans to visit our dog family and good friends in New Hampshire and pick up our new additions to the kennel. Lidia and Richard from Uktousa Kennel is home to our Tuloon/Bazil puppy, Cookqiz and our Tuloon/McKenzie puppies, Hana and Tumac. Tumac and Daisy, Journey's sister, were bred and puppies are due the day after Thanksgiving! We will make plans to fly to New Hampshire the end of January.
In addition, the Boundary Waters awaits! The Points Unknown sled dogs haven't made a proper BWCA trip since before our time providing the dog mushing adventures for Gunflint Lodge on the Gunflint Trail north of Grand Marais, MN which was three winters ago. Neil hasn't been into the BWCA and we are looking forward to giving him a tour.
So Happy Birthday to Neil! We hope you have a wonderful birthday and we all miss you and can't wait to see you next month.
