This week the Handler/Trainee Positions for this season were finalized and filled.
I am very happy with the new members of the Miortuk Team and look foreword to their arrival here.
Would also like take this opportunity to thank all of the applicants for their interest and wish them all the best in their future adventures.
We had some equipment and truck issues that were all resolved.
The weather here this week was a nice mixture of sunny days and also of a couple of rainy days. Yes, rainy weather is appreciated in order to keep the forest from being too dry.
Unfortunately this has not been the case in Alaska where a major forest fire are decimating Kennels in the Mushing Community around Willow, Alaska.
Many mushers have lost their homes and most of their belongings.
The good news is all the canine and human inhabitants are safe and have been housed by other mushers and communities.
A big thank you to Eagle Pack Dog Food Company for supplying food to those in need.
If any one is interested in helping out with donations, they can go to the following website.
This fire was caused by human neglect, in this case the use of Fireworks.
Again, please be careful of with flammables when visiting the forest.
We need your assistance to prevent forest fires.
Until next week.......
