(Or Mush On!) Whatever they tell the dogs to get them to go…Hike is the most common here..they Go, and go, and go. The energizer bunny has nuthin on these pooches!
Lance Mackey and 11 of his dogs (including Maple and Rev in the lead) have won the 38th annual Iditarod Sled Dog Championship Race. Maple Gets the Golden Harness! WHoopppeee! 8 days, 23 Hours, 59 Minutes, 9 Seconds. Amazing work by an amazing team. Congratulations to Lance Mackey and his Comeback Kennel for a spectacular display of paw-power, strategy and all around good sportsmanship. He even had to battle himself this time around with having had surgery on one arm recently. So he’s beaten Cancer, addiction, multiple injuries and medical problems, naysayers and now over 51 teams are on their way to the finish. Lance Mackey was first, Hans Gatt of BC Canada was second and Jeff King (also a former champ) came in third. Congrats to all the finishers so far..and Good on Ya Lance Mackey and the ComeBack Kennel Team..Gooood Dogs!
