My friend Joel stopped by the kennel on his way back to Minnesota earlier this week.
He and 30 of his dogs work giving tours to cruise ship passengers out of Juneau, Alaska from May - September.
In the winter he gives ride out of his Suomi Kennels in Deer River, MN.
Joel is a friend from my days hanging out at Jamie Nelson's kennel. Having him visit always makes me remember good (and well missed) friends, wonderful trips with dog teams, sleeping under fantastic red northern lights, mud, laughter, Hot Bologna Thursdays (!!!!) .... and that another winter season full of memorable moments is one the way!!!
