    Iditarod Project
    Hi,Greetings from Woodstock, GA, just north of Atlanta. One of the wild and crazy things I would like to do before I am to old for the trip to the "tundra" is to attend the Iditarod! Thank you for the photos and the reminder about the serum race. Has your class read books by Jack London. He really describes the wilderness north so well. Mr. Paul Bogush's website was recommended in a class I am taking. I am so glad to become acquainted with you all. I am a retired teacher thinking about on-line teaching. I have one grandson, Luke,who is 2 1/2. I raise Saanen and mixed pygmy goats on our 10 acre farm. I specialize in bottle feeding "kids" (4 legged variety) who have been rejected by their nannies.

    Musher biography
    By: Squirtle
    Squirtle has won many iditarod awards. And not just first place. Red lantern awards too, 4 already. Her head dog, Kenya, is a pure bred husky that has all kinds of awards herself, including special Pedigree dog food for 4 years. Kenya has never been taken out of the race. But Kenya's dog Deputy, Ashscrape, has many times now. Squirtle has only been in the even year Iditarod events. Because four is her favorite number, and everyone knows that number four is even. She was also born on
    If I were an even day.
    A mini biography for Kenya and the other dogs:
    Kenya is a lovely dark brown and white husky, only two years old,
    She is a young dog. She is a pro swimmer so that freezing creeks are no problem. She has been in many dog Olympics. Including the swimming event, so she even has a toddler sized swim suit. All the dogs were given toddler sized snow clothes for the
    Iditarod to be prepared: Booties, slick pants, [ with added tail holes.] Eskimo jackets, and packed pajamas if they spent the night at a checkpoint. “I fearmusher I pamper them to much.” Says their musher.
    Ashscrape is a lovely black and gray male husky. He is a 3rd- bred. His mother was a half-breed and his father was too. He likes
    would name the cold to much and often catches colds. That is why he is taken out of the races to much. He is Kenya’s deputy in case she is not picked or if she is ever taken out of the race. Ashscrape is ALWAYS picked to join at the start.
    Vet’s checklist
    1. Check for swollen or dry and cracking paws/pads.
    2. Check mouth for cavities or stuck food, and then give beef flavored dental sticks.
    3. Weigh and measure, then send a copy with musher to next checkpoint.
    4. Give bath to keep healthy and cold/fever free.
    5. Give decent meal of kibble and water.
    6. Give small dollar store-like toy as reward.
