Cool pictures! I like how the dogs are wearing little booties! I know that sometimes in the snow here my feet get cold, so I can't even dream of how cold it is in Alaska!
Oh! The pictures are REALLY great! I would not know which one is the best. All of them are simply fantastic!Liks,Raisa
The dog that lived here before I was born was a Samoyed and the humans 'round here tell stories of sled pullin' and stuff. I would rather herd the sleds than pull them, but I appreciate the work those dogs can do, really amazing.Cal
Hey Indy,Looks like some buddies are enjoyin' the Idiarod. Mom and Dad lived in Anchorage 69-72. They just missed the first Idiarod.They used to go to the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous on 4th Ave and watch the beginnin' of the smaller sled dog race that started there. See http://www.anchorage.net/745.cfm and http://www.alaskatrekker.com/furrondy.htm. Apparently they are still sellin' skins of our dead buddies. Mom and Dad thought that would have stopped but that IS the purpose of a fur rendezvous.Fouth Avenue (the north side), still the location of the start of the Iditarod, appears not to have changed much from when my humans lived there. If you go to Google Earth, enter 4th Ave, Anchorage, AK, you can see many parking lots on the north side of Fourth. Just like 1972. That part of the city sank eleven feet durin' the 1964 earthquake and was left vacant for a long time afterwards. A motel did build on the north side of the street. Humans kinda Arfed at that at the time.Thanks for the photo link.Woof!Freda
Hi Indy! I was looking for any blogs about the Iditarod and came across your blog. Not only are you a beautiful pup, but you have a beautiful blog! Even though my furbaby is a Bichon, I have a special place in my heart for sled dogs!
