Besides being an all-around fantastic sled dog here at SP Kennel, Spicy has just become our first "corporate sponsored" dog!
Last year when the folks at Freeds read that Aliy was giving up her beloved coffee for racing season, they sent her some of their Energi Tea to try. She likes it very much, and drank it both throughout the season and into the post-season while mushing up in the ANWR on Natural Extremes adventure trips. This year, they said they wanted to do more with the Kennel, and we suggested they sponsor Spicy in honor of her name's reflection of their tasty tea. They were thrilled with the idea and have "signed" Spicy to a long-term contract!
What's even more fun is that they're going to enclose Spicy's team card with their mail order shipments, so she will become famous with a whole new audience! Although our Dog Sponsor program has traditionally been one of individual participation in SP Kennel -- and in the lives of some very special dogs -- we're delighted to now open up this program to "corporate" sponsors as well. If your company would like to leverage the fast-growing popularity of sled dog sports, why not sponsor one of our fantastic canine athletes! Just email us -- SPKDogLog@gmail.com -- and we'll help you pick the perfect spokesdog!
