Ok, pups, you will have to forgive us this week. Certain pups (oh, like say Remington) may have sports that they follow and talk about all of the time on their blogs. But we quietly follow our favorite sport right up until the first Saturday in March – TODAY! Yep, today is the ceremonial start of the 38th Iditarod Race. Today is about fun – not race times – but is quite an adventure.
And who will we be paying attention to? We like lots of the mushers, but our favorite has always been Karen Ramstead of North Wapiti Kennels and you can follow her blog and read her official bio. Why is she our favorite? Well, we have met her more than any other musher, for one. She even has visited us in the S-RV. And she has a video of her Pretty Sled Dogs (and, yes, we own it and have seen it many, many times). So when the 29th racer leaves the starting line today, know that the loud Woo you hear from Maggie Valley is the Herd rooting on our favorite musher.
As our way of saluting Karen as she starts the race this year, we received permission from Donna Quante (www.huskyproductions.net) to share the music video from the movie Pretty Sled Dogs with the music of Kyf Brewer. Best of luck Karen!
Please share with us your favorite video, musher, or Iditarod story. It is that week!
