Sponsor Appreciation Day

This season left a lot to be desired as far as snow. Despite being in the snowbelt of northeast Ohio, we saw very little snow. Luckily, I was able to drive to the Upper Peninsula often throughout the season for some sled time with the team.

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."

Without sponsors like these, mushing wouldn't likely exist like it does today. A big THANK YOU to these and all of the sponsors from this last season. You make it all possible! And a special

to you!
