IPSSSDR Dogs Love to Run

February 2, 2012 Jackson Hole, Lincoln County, State of Wyoming No Comments
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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
