Dog Sled Race Braves Bitter Cold

Dogs

Bitter cold temperatures have greeted racers along the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race through western Wyoming, but mushers are quick to tell you the dogs running in the race do best in the colder weather. In fact, the chief veterinarian for the race, Caroline Griffits says racers truly display top-notch care for their animals. Along the course of the racer, Griffits says she and other members of the veterinary team keep a close eye on the welfare of the participating dogs. Today, the race continues with a 45 mile course along the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway before proceeding to Lyman/Mountain View for stage stop festivities. Currently, Bud Streeper maintains the lead with a cumulative time of 16:38:35; AaronPeck is second with 17:07:37; and Aaron Burmeister from Nenana, Alaska, is third with 17:19:10.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
