As luck would have it, I spent the 2 days prior to my kennel visit sick as a dog with the flu. To make matters worse, I also experienced my first and thus far, only, earthquake. I honestly thought I was hallucinating from high fever until I called the front desk of the hotel and they confirmed it was, indeed, a mild earthquake.
I secured the sled while Lynda hooked up the team.
Getting final instructions from Lynda:
"Keep your arms in the sled and your mouth shut!"
