Noggin is resting up for her talk tonight at Goffstown Public Library in Goffstown, NH at 6 pm. And then tomorrow we’re at the Medway Public Library in Medway, MA at 7 pm. See you up the trail…

PS… bring a pillow for Noggin

THANK YOU to SHELLY HENSS, our longtime friend and the best dog groomer east of the Divide!

Noggin, Chloe, and I are heading out on an East Coast talk tour. It’s great to begin the trip looking and feeling like a million bucks. Now if I can just keep Chloe from rolling… she’s part pig but 100% adorable.

Need grooming? Check out Shelly’s new shop, the Butl’RRR’ Bark in Indy. Head to 4149 Boulevard Place for a tour or call her at 463-209-1972 to set up an appointment. Tell her Noggin and Chloe sent you.

… PRAIRIE CENTRAL ELEMENTARY, THAT IS!

We enjoyed our return visit to Fairbury, Illinois. A big thanks to Lisa Lange for arranging our visit (and YES, you should apply to be the Iditarod Teacher on the Trail!).

The enthusiastic teachers from Mt. Healthy sent us more photographs from yesterday’s talk. I always LOVE getting photos—it’s difficult to take them myself during the presentation, and Noggin has yet to master the smart phone camera. The students, well-prepared for our visit, offered up many fun and thoughtful questions. We could have gone much longer than the 1.5 hours allotted! The teachers plan to follow the Iditarod Sled Dog Race with their students. Don’t forget the race begins March 3rd … MUSH!

This morning Noggin did a fine job representing TEAM USA (and sled dogs everywhere) at our presentation at Mt. Healthy Elementary in Columbus, Indiana. The big and beautiful flag as our backdrop put my Alaskan Husky in a very patriotic mood. Noggin is always such a good girl at our talks— she does deserve a gold medal. But, thankfully, she was quite content with the slices of American cheese stashed in my back pocket.
