Legacy Lost

Susan Butcher died Saturday at age 51 from cancer. She leaves her husband and two children.

She won the Iditarod 4 times. She was my inspiration for the naming of this company and founding our ideals. I saw her on a Sunday morning show and was inspired by her story then some 8 years ago.

Susan Butcher quote - "I do not know the word quit. Either I never did, or I have abolished it."

Amiri Farris illustrated one of her dogs for our logo.

We also lost "Beano" the Great Dane dog that stumbled onto my back porch - we tried to rescue him last Friday - he also died on Saturday.
