Streeper Wins For A Fourth Time

Streeper Wins

Blayne “Bud” Streeper from Fort Nelson, British Columbia, is the winner of the 2012 International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race with an overall time of 19:52.42. This is the fourth first-place IPSSSDR win for Streeper, who also won the race in 2004, 2010 and 2011. Aaron Peck from Grand Prairie, Alberta, took second place in the 2012 race with a cumulative time of 20:09.27 while John Stewart of Scotland was third with a final time of 20:23.40. The race, which began January 27th in downtown Jackson concluded one week later at Deadhorse Trailhead, south of Mountain View, Wyoming.  The race was inaugurated in 1996 by Frank Teasley of Jackson, with the help of Teton County Public Nurse Jayne Ottman to showcase the state of Wyoming and to make sled dog racing more accessible to the public. In addition, the race worked to spread the word about the need for childhood immunizations.  Each year since, the race makes a contribution to communities along the race route for childhood immunizations.  Pedigree® Food for Dogs is the title sponsor of the IPSSSDR as it supports a variety of programs that promote responsible pet ownership an highlight the contributions dogs make to society.

    Each year, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department sends out a reminder of the right way to release fish when you turn them back into the water. Al Langston of the Game and Fish recently sent out that reminder, so I thought I’d pass it along to you. When the water gets warm this time […]
  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]
