Laura Neese and her team of 14 Alaskan Huskies from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are staying with us and living in the BeingThere Dog Village for a couple of weeks as they prepare for the 1000 mile Yukon Quest sled international dog race that begins on February 6th.

The race runs from Fairbanks Alaska to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory Canada. We’re very excited to be hosting Laura, her handler Jim and 14 beautiful, young and strong Alaskan Huskies. More pics and info to follow, for sure.

Here is a link to Laura’s profile on the Yukon Quest website: www.yukonquest.com/race-central/yukon-quest-1000-mile/mus...

Population explosion!
We have an influx of 14 young dogs in the BeingThere dog village these days, temporarily bringing our total to 25. It hasn’t been too disruptive and our elders are taking it in stride. Along with the dogs are Laura Neese and her handler Jim. They are from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and are staying with us as they prepare for the 1000 mile, international Yukon Quest sled dog race, which begins in Fairbanks on February 6th. To put it mildly, we’re quite excited and it’s a joy to have Laura, Jim and the dogs staying with us.

There is a neat Flickr connection here. Laura is originally from Newark Ohio and her sister Erin is a wonderful photographer. Laura and Erin saw my sled dog and mushing photos several years ago and we quickly became friends. Lenore and I visited them at their home in Newark back in 2011. They are a part of a great family and we are looking forward to Laura’s parents joining us next week, as they will be handling for her during this 1000 mile adventure.

Forgot to mention the dog in front there is named Maple, she's absolutely gorgeous and Laura's best leader.

Laura with her dog Henry getting checked out by veterinarian Barb Cole of Fairbanks.
Yukon Quest Vet Check, January 23, 2016.

Like all long distance sled dog races the Yukon Quest has a dedicated cadre of Veterinarians for the entire race. Two weeks before the race start every dog is checked and must be approved to run the 1000 mile race.
Mushers keep detailed notes about their dogs' health and work with vets throughout the race to keep there dogs healthy.
