The above series of photos documents Katie's life from a puppy to the beautiful Sled Dog she has become.
Katie this Winter became united with her new Musher, Lila, and with her started her journey to France and her new life.
Lila came this Winter to fulfill her dream of starting her own kennel in France with Katie being the matron of the new pack.
Both Lila & Katie had a couple of months bonding and running in a 6 dog team her at Miortuk.
However, last Tuesday evening Katie got loose through the evening and wondered off getting lost in a new location she was not yet familiar with.
Lila was in despair being separated from Katie and seeing her dream being shattered! After several days of continuous searching, posting fliers, contacting numerous groups in both France and Switzerland; Lila's persistence paid off. Katie was found and reunited with Lila.
This was an incredible story of the kindness, caring and support of many people as well as organization from both Countries. On the France Mushing Site over 1000 people were involved with the search in one way or another.
The outpouring of support over Facebook was absolutely amazing.
A big thank you has to given the the man that found, retrieved and reunited her with Lila on Saturday.
Now Katie safe at home with Lila and an incredible bonding has taken place.
I am overwhelmed by the kindness and support of so many. It certainly has renewed my faith in the kindness and generosity of the human race to come together when there is a need.
This a great news story with a very happy beginning for a beautiful young lady, her dog and their pursuance of a DREAM!
Until next week.......
