An Entry By Rocket Ramstead
Hello, I'm Rocket Ramstead. I thought that I'd take a moment to share with you what I did on my summer holiday.
Now us rough, tough Iditarod dogs don't have the same definition of 'summer holiday' as most of you. The NorthWapiti crew gets a bit of May and June off for 'holidays'.
I know June isn't actually over yet, but I'm a 'keener' so I usually get my projects done early!!
At the start of holidays I spent some time debating what I was going to do. Playing with my neighbors, Jinx, Dasher, Crackle and See is fun but I wanted something more...substantial.
I also wanted something that would keep my upper body buff so I was ready for lots of 'Rocket Dances' once the season started.
Finally it hit me - I'd tap into the Siberian strengths of landscape architecture and structural engineering and put a basement in my doghouse.
I am SO pleased with how it turned out!
Thanks to my careful design and execution my house is still stable and I have a GREAT new space to hang out in!!
