Yesterday, we went to the Tennessee Working Dog Symposium sponsored by Siberian Husky Assist and met some celebrities:
Dr. Al Townshend, DVM, presented two courses – one on dog nutrition and one on Orthopedic care for Working Dogs. He has years of experience as a veterinarian at the Iditarod, and has received the coveted “Golden Stethescope Award” from the Iditarod for contributions above and beyond the call of duty in bringing veterinary care to the dogs of the Iditarod. He also shared some great stories from the trail.
Karen Ramstead of North Wapiti Siberian Husky Kennels who shared some great stories from her years of running the Iditarod, some funny and some as touching as her recounting the special nature – and loss – of Snickers.

But all of this was upstaged by one very special guest star. Someone of striking beauty in her sparkling eyes, athleticism, and amazing ability to handle the crush of puparazzi. The one, the only – Holly. Here she is addressing her adoring fans and the crush of cameras:
Quite a pro, huh?
