Ryno Athletes Arrive in Dawson City

12 amazing Ryno Kennel athletes arriving in Dawson City. Kindi and Belle were left in Scroggie Creek due to shoulder soreness. Neither were happy being left behind and were very vocal as the team pulled out. Ryne will miss her two biggest cheerleaders. (Kindi and Belle caught a ride into Dawson and now travel back to Fairbanks in the handler's truck.)

After arriving at the check-in in downtown Dawson City, the team still had a few mile run to the campground. In the past, the Yukon River was frozen all the way across at the check-in, but with an open river, teams were having to travel upstream to find an ice bridge that spanned all the way across, and finally the dogs are across and almost to their resting spot.

After vet checks, feeding, massaging, and bedding down the pups, Gunhild and Shaynee will settle into the handler's tent close by.
