String of Dogs

Noggin, Chloe, and I traveled to five states in 29 days, giving 25 presentations to thousands of students, library patrons, and mushing fans. We met so many wonderful people! Thank you to the schools and libraries for inviting us to your communities and to all of the enthusiastic dog lovers who attended out talks!

We’re home now, doing laundry, cleaning out our truck, and repacking for our Midwestern and East coast adventures. Interested in a SUMMER READING talk? We’re booking now for May, June, and July. For more information, email Karen at mymusher at gmail.com.

Recently when I was helping my Aunt Dot move from her apartment, I stumbled across this photograph. For me, it was a heart-warming find: my dear, sweet mother and best friend — Janice Land — along with a previous generation from our string of dogs. From left to right, there is Rosa, Adeline Sullivan, and Kirby (A.K.A. Senator Kirby Kong on the Appalachian Trail). What fun we had!
