A Special Alaskan Dog

This week I had an incredible experience on my trip to Alaska. On our way back from Denali National Park we stopped in Wasilla, just outside of Anchorage, at the headquarters of the Iditarod. After scouring the gift shop for the usual trinkets we went to see the Iditarod huskies.  I had the joy of holding and playing with 3 huskie puppies. We also met Earl the full grown husky. What a treat.
