Chinook Kennels - Part 2

Woos & a-rooos,
Here we are, as promised. We have a few more pictures from historic Chinook Kennels. Yesterday we showed woo the memorial markers and the kennel runs, today we have a view of the house:

and the "office" cabin, which is generally falling apart:

Mom didn't take any pictures of the museum buildings, but the two of them were connected with an overpass that leads to the trails down the hill. We thought we'd look perfect under this sign:

ha-woo-woo-woo, see what we mean?

Just another nice view of us:

Mom sent an e-mail to the Chinook Kennels Heritage Foundation. The nice folks e-mailed back and told her that the property was privately owned by husky enthusiests . The original idea was to run the museum with the support of various breed clubs, and the owners would maintain the property. But apparently other things seemed tho have more urgent need for $$, and this project was abandoned. Too bad, it's a cool place. We'll leave you with a close up of the marker in the area mom suspects holds husky bones:


Now today our trip to NH has taken on an even stranger twist - it turns out that mom's friend (who owns the cabin we stayed in) is the niece of Arthur T. Walden, founder of Chinook Kennels & developer of the Chinook breed, and head trainer & dog-driver for Admiral Byrd!! Tune in tomorrow for more!

Woos & a-roos,
Star & Jack a-roo
