Sandy Kogl

August 15, 1943 - September 13, 2010

9/23/10
Submitted by Fred Agree

From http://ktna.org

Sandy Kogl, 67, of Talkeetna died of ALS Sept. 13, 2010, at home, surrounded by family and friends.

A celebration of life will be at 3 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar, with potluck finger foods afterward. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in care of Matanuska Valley Federal Credit Union to “Sandy’s Circle,” a newly formed group dedicated to providing support to caregivers in the Talkeetna area.

Sandy was born Aug. 15, 1943, in Hastings, Neb.

A childhood in California ranch country inspired Sandy to join 4-H to raise horses and livestock and compete in rodeo events.

After graduating from UC Davis in zoology, Sandy “came into the country” in 1964 and enrolled in a graduate degree program in wildlife management at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. While there, she married Dennis Kogl; they moved up the Yanert River to homestead and run a sled dog freighting operation. Both of her children, Renge’ and Leif, were born in Fairbanks and had their first dog sled rides back to the homestead when just 10 days old.

Sandy’s experience with sled dogs led her in 1975 to Denali National Park’s kennels, where she was hired to revitalize backcountry dog sled patrols, improve the breeding program and renovate the facility. There she wrote the book “Sled Dogs of Denali.”
