Training for sled dog racing is not easy or cheap. Frequent trips to the Upper Peninsula for training, entry fees for races, not to mention dog food, vaccinations and vet care make mushing quite expensive. Fortunately, there are people who are fans of mushing who help support this fantastic sport through their generous donations throughout the dogs season and beyond.
Michigan friend SueAnn Henry, Cleveland native Robert Sadler and local Mike Freibert came to meet the dogs yesterday for an impromptu "Sponsor Appreciation Day."
