The Iditarod 2011 has been won by a native Alaskan. How exciting!
Mamma and I watched a show on Animal Planet about this insanity. We are very curious about the preparation of such a race and all the logistics of dropping dogs and caring for dogs during the race. We saw the mushers making beds of hay at check points during rests. And the dogs appear to be well-cared for and enjoying their task.
So our question is very open and general... HOW in the world do you care for a team of dogs on the go?
AND are the dogs comfy and warm?
Maybe some of our Sibe friends can help us learn more.
