Mark and Diane Johnson, founders of Over the Hill Kennels, live in Aberdeen, South Dakota. They raise and mush Alaskan Sled Dogs, and live with their kennel of usually about 15 full sized sled dogs, their teenage son, Michael, and their three Klee Kai named Rx (pronouned "rex"), Libby and Ringo. One of their favorite hobbies is dog sled mushing. The winters in South Dakota can make for many wonderful afternoons behind a dog sled!
