Welcome to the I Was A Sled Dog Blog!
The name is a bit of a mouthful so I'm hoping to come up with a shorter name for it (ideas welcome!) - in the meantime... here it is!
This site and blog is where I will now be posting my sled dog advocacy journey content - from photos and stories from my archives to stories adopters of sled dogs want to share. From action alerts to sled dogs in the news and whatever else that could help people see sled dogs as the sentient beings they are.
Most of the content on this site used to reside on my personal website and some old blog links still will track back there because I can't move them over in any way that seems reasonable (and there are some comments I want to keep visible), but I thought it was about time that the sleddies got their own site, their own domain, their own landing spot. When sharing links from this page, I want people to share, reference and remember I Was A Sled Dog and not me personally.
Herein you will see the focus is on the after, the second chapters, the adventures and the rescued/retired/former/fired sled dogs that I've met and photographed along the way because each one holds a very special spot in my heart.
Please take a look around and join me on my journey to see the variety of breeds that make up the 'modern' sled dog, what other things they can do for fun (because there's so more to life for them than pulling sleds), and what kinds of remarkable lives former sled dogs can lead if given the chance.
April 2020 UPDATE: After I began this blog I ended up adding some pages for previous years so I could fully update my archive back to 2011 in a way that meant I didn't have to add a bazillion new pages to this site... so while this really was the first post on my blog in February 2019, it now seems out of place... which may be confusing... but I really wanted the older posts in chronological order... thanks for your patience!
