    Experts! We are experts in a lot of things: being us, being lovable, being Beau’s longest serving students in remedial bible study, holding the record for the amount of times Beau had to begin with Genesis chapter 1, verse 1, and other things that we cannot recall at this time on advice of our attorney at paw. Our Lady is an expert in knowing that the only bad characteristic of our kind is our ability to break hearts. We here at the kennel don’t know the musher/scientist in the study. She must be a sprint musher which is to distance racing what drag racing is to Nascar. Our Lady can’t speak to the science, but there is one thing mentioned in the article to which we will speak. There are mushers who sell dogs who are no longer racing or don’t make the cut. Not us. That is not our way. Take Ole Doc and Wyatt, for example. They retired long before we did. But, they stayed. Because of them, our couch was rarely in danger of floating away. It irks the Giant and our Lady when they see mushers selling ‘their best leader’ or ‘favorite swing dog.’ To us at the kennel, we are family, not a commodity. We think that some mushers—-those who value the glory and image of musher over the work and worry of a kennel—- believe treating us as a commodity to be upgraded or traded in like a used vehicle gives them some sore of validation as a legitimate musher. We are glad this musher/scientist is giving the dogs a place to wag their tails until they Cross the Bridge, but for us, as our Lady tells anyone who visits the kennel: Our deal with the dogs is if they’ve given us their career they stay with us until their end. They are not disposable. They are family.

    Our Lady says we should get off our soapbox now.
