HuMom and Dad are back! It's been a hectic week here. I've only recently been able to restore the passwords back to my blog since the hostile Kiley took over during HuMom's absence. Typical Mal-A Brat! She thinks the sun and moon revolve around her.
I have lots to catch you up on. HuMom and Dad spent the week at their favorite dance camp called "Swing out New Hampshire".http://www.swingoutnh.com/ In it's 10th year, the camp is run by Mark Kapner formerly of Country Joe and the Fish" fame. It's six days of dance lessons followed by big band social dancing each night. This is Dad's favorite event. He travels to many places throughout the year to either DJ or dance but all his favorite dancers, instructors and DJ's usually attend this camp. Besides great dances, there is plenty of other activites such as swimming, tennis, cabaret and campfire sing-a-longs. Here's our video of our their campfire night singing!
The only downside to this vacation is us furkids have to stay at home. By Saturday, HuMom needed her furfix ad thankfully HuMom's friend Jeff and his malamute Granite live close by. Granite is a very special malamute as he is Kiley's first love. He's the first malamute Kiley had ever met about 5 years ago.
This is Granite. He is furry furry handsome. He recently had a serious health scare and HuMom wasn't sure she would be able to see him this trip. But he's starting to get better and we're praying he's restored to health soon.
Jeff picked up HuMom and they met up with the Gallagher's and 4 of their malamutes for a hike at Profile Falls.
These are the Gallaghermals. The arrived in the back of their van and travel in style. HuMom thinks this is a funny picture. They're ready to go for a hike. Wish I could go.
New Hampshire is very rich in sleddog history. Chinook kennels, located in New Hampshire, was owned by Arthur Walden. Admiral Byrd appointed Arthur Walden lead driver and trainer for Byrd's 1929 Antartic Expedition.
HuMom really liked the sign at the trailhead.
Here's HuMom and Cassie and Jeff and Granite in front of the sleddog sign.

After the walk and some lunch, they all headed over to Vicki's place where HuMom had the chance to meet the 11 Malamutes of Rubicon! Here she with Vicki and petting one of her Mals named Jezibel. Isn't she pretty? HuMom was very glad she had the chance to meet some of the famous malamutes including Gus, her weightpull champion and Summer, a beautiful all white Malamute! HuMom has never seen so many sleddogs in one day.
She finally returned home to me!
