More than anything in the world I am most grateful for my family. They have shown me everything I have needed to see, taught me everything I have needed to learn, and provided for me everything I have ever needed. My immediate family of my wife and three kids have lived together, laughed together and cried together. My family that lives all over the country have been my biggest supporters with me chasing my dreams. If I owe a debt of gratitude it would be to all of family. It is a debt that is paid and re-paid every day.
I am grateful for the opportunity to write this little book and to share it with people all over the world. I am grateful for my friends at Arctic House Publishing for believing in our story and us. I am grateful for the learning process it took to write this little book. Over a year of work and constant re-writes, edits and illustration changes to get it just right.
I am grateful for my business. This business has taken my family and I on some remarkable journeys over the last twenty years or so. I have worked with some truly awesome clients and have travelled all over the country to work with clients and their dogs. Some of my greatest gifts from clients are the kind words of a job well done. This business has provided for us financially, socially and intellectually. It has allowed us to live a lifestyle of little worry and a chance to chase our dreams.
I am grateful to all of our sponsors, big and small, for their in-kind donations, financial support and vision to see our dream and wanting to be a part of it. While we not be professional mushers and winning the big races, we share our story of a little family mushing kennel that tries to share their story to inspire others.
