The Iditarod dog sled race started an hour ago up in Alaska. Now they only have to run for 1000 miles and they're finished LOL. I love this race. These mushers and dogs are off the chart crazy tough....

We were going to enter this year, but my team of Boston terriers and an overweight Chihuahua don't like the cold. As a matter of fact, the only thing they pull are the covers over themselves on the couch.

Unless you are the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

I saw they had to bring snow in for the start of the race, who would think you would have to truck in snow from one part of Alaska to another for this race that is because of snow

that sounds like a job for Hugh. It would be pretty hard to destroy that cargo...

its over and this is the prize breakdown. Which is VERY surprising.
The winner this year get ANOTHER dodge pickup. from 31st place on, everyone gets 1049 bucks. I might borrow my moms dogs next years and see if I cam make it. She has a yorkiepoo, HEIDI, another poo something, BENJI, that can handle the cold better then the yorkiepoo but not better then DAISY, the LEAD dog, which loves to lay in the cold garage or out side, no matter the temps. That yorkie poo is going to need some blankets...

It's a cool race. Literally. If you ever go to Alaska, they live for the event.
