2. Cuddling Iditarod puppies

When I told my daughter Lucy about all the things we would be doing on our cruise, the thing that excited her the most was getting a chance to cuddle with sled-dog puppies that will one day compete in Alaska’s famed Iditarod race. On every sailing in Alaska, the cruise line hosts something called Puppies in the Piazza, where these adorable little doggies come aboard the ship to nuzzle with passengers. As if it couldn’t get better, we also went to a camp in Juneau, where Lucy got to race through the wilderness on a mushing sled pulled by dogs training for the Iditarod race and cuddle with even more puppies.
