Many of us were hoping for a design that is welcoming, full of natural light, and open to its exterior surroundings. The objective should be something that our small community, as well as the rest of Canada, will be proud of. Mr. Audain's superb cultural gift should not suffer the indignity of being housed in a black bunker.

Happy trials and tails

Excitement was in the air. The dogs were harnessed, the passengers were on board and the mushers were ready. It was an unbelievable experience that we will never forget.

What amazed us most was just how excited the dogs were about going on their run. They sat patiently waiting for their harnesses to be put on, and then jumped and howled with excitement, as they got ready to run. Some of the dogs on our team were literally jumping for joy while they waited for the sound of that most delightful word, "Hub Hub" (the signal that they could run with their friends through the beauty of the wilderness).

We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank-you to the amazing people at Whistler Sled Dog Co. for the awesome experience that you provided for us. It was such a fantastic experience that opened our eyes and our hearts to the wonder of the animals and the love that you share with them. Your compassionate and fun-loving attitudes are evident in all that you do.

The event would have been nothing without the wonderful dogs... you were all amazing.

We are grateful that we were able to meet you all, and share some smiles and cuddles with you. You were all so loving and affectionate and so happy to spend time with us.
