“It’s been really hard here, and the kids have been crying this whole week,” says Ashley Theiler. “It’s been extremely frustrating, more heartbreaking than frustrating,”

Theiler and her family own four dogs bred for sled racing, along with a fifth dog that provides emotional support to her 11-year-old son, who struggles with anxiety and depression.
