And I can't forget Balto in Central Park in New York City.

I recently visited Cleveland and had to stop by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History where the real Balto is on display.  When Balto died in 1933, his body was mounted and is now housed at Museum. Balto's mount remains a part of the Museum's permanent collections, carefully protected and cared for by Museum curators.

Kelly's first sponsor was Radio Station KFQD and KWHL. Thanks to our good friend Carter B. This picture of Kelly and Foxy was taken at the North American Sled Dog Race in Fairbanks, Alaska.

KFQD even brought their large radio to the sled dog races to cover the junior sled dog races.



Kelly was once a guest on KFQD's Marcus in the Morning Radio show. The two of them discussed the upcoming Junior sled dog race.



When Kelly was older, she raced twice in the Arctic Winter Games in Canada. This picture was taken in 1990, in Yellowknife, NWT, Canada.

Ed even raced the sled dogs in the summer in Fairbanks, Alaska. Twice around a football field and it was so much fun. The dogs loved it as much as Ed did.

Foxy looked a lot like her mother, only smaller.

Kelly and Foxy were great friends. We all miss Foxy very much, but we have her story to share with everyone.
