IPSSSDR Dogs Love to Run

Griffitts

In day five of the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race yesterday, Blayne Streeper, three time winner of the IPSSSDR, was able to hold onto his lead while Scotsman John Stewart moved up into second place. Aaron Peck, who had been in second place fell to third place as the race took them on a 54-mile run along the Greys River Road near Alpine, Wyoming.  Chief Veterinarian for the race, Caroline Griffitts says there’s no question the dogs love to run, and she adds that they really lead a pampered life and are treated like the top athletes they are. Griffitts adds that vet care on the trail has gone high tech in recent years with microchips imbedded into the dogs for identification and other information. Griffitts says while the dogs are high-spirited, they are very well socialized and well behaved, and after they are retired from racing, they make great house pets.  Today, the IPSSSDR is in Evanston for the first of two days of racing there.
