A TONNE of EaglePack - Well, 2 Tonnes Actually!!!

Sometimes the best laid plans go astray. My dog food order was supposed to arrive last week and Mark would have been around to help unload, but shipping didn't go as smoothly as hoped (no one's fault - just one of those things) and it arrived today.

Unfortunately, the pulp mill Mark is working at is doing their yearly 'shutdown', so he is working straight through for 12 hours a day for the next 2 weeks. I wouldn't even suggest that he starting throwing bags of dog food when he got home, so the task was left to Bait, Cricket, Bet and myself.

I was thinking the bulk of the offloading of 120 bags was going to fall on me. Yup, 120 - 40 lbs (18.1 kg) of kibble.....4800 lbs...2172 kg......

Sure enough, supervising was all that was on Bait's agenda.

And Bet and Cricket kept watch to make sure no 'unsavory characters' came into the yard...

Yeah...ummm....thanks guys. That helped....a LOT....

...and me.....well I got everything off loaded and safely tucked into the garage.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Eagle Pack Natural Pet Food for their continued support of the kennel. For over 10 years it has been what every NorthWapiti dog has eaten from birth to death.

Just to give you an idea of how long we have been feeding EaglePack here is Bait as a kitten supervising a dog food delivery...

Bait supervising dog food delivery today!

Our dogs are long lived, healthy, spunky and happy in no small part due to their top notch diet.

Soon to be 14-year-old Odie doing laps of his pen while waiting for his Eagle Pack kibble the other morning. In the pen with him are 12-year-old Dasher and Odie's brother, Loki! All Iditarod finishers!
They have coats, muscle tone and attitude that easily transition from the trail to the show ring. In the whelping box they easily (sometimes TOO easily) reproduce, whelp easily and recover quickly.

We don't believe we could do better for them.

Thank you EaglePack - we couldn't do what we do without you!!!

That is amazing & awesome all at the same time!! It is wonderful that they have sponsored you for such a long time. Bait was so cute & is just beautiful now. That is alot of food. My somewhat thin Sitka only eats a 38# bag of food 3 times a year. Your dogs do live long, wonderful lives. Hope you enjoy the run tomorrow. Sitka's mom Lisa (Cols. OH one)
