Dorris Heffron, author , lover of sled dogs and companion to Alaskan Malamutes, has been a friend to the Chinook Project for a number of years.  Her first Malamutes, Yukon Sally and Yukon Jake inspired the creation of dog stars. She continues to be a generous donor and has shared this photo of her new friends. Dorris writes:
“Yukitu, our 8 year old malamute and Ike’s Hope, our 3 year old “long hair” malamute now rule the 50 acres of our property, Little Creek Wolf Range. A tailor made Invisible Fence  allows them to run free on it. Each morning they take me on a hike along all the trails before I go to my desk. The spirits of Yukon Sally and Jake go with us.”
