Happy Trails!

Hi everyone! It's me, Moo, here to tell woo about what we're doing!

We're officially starting our pawticipation in the
This is an event to promote physical fitness in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod Sled dog race is 1049 miles long from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. Off we go!

Our walking path doesn't have any snow, glaciers, polar bears or igloos or anything like that, but it's still pretty nice. Jack says to keep an eye out fur evil squirrels, especially down the hill by the fence.

The official site says "To complete the Idita-Walk, simply walk 30 minutes a day for 35 days betweenFebruary 1, 2010 to March 31, 2010 for a total of 1049 minutes(any combination of minutes will work - just reach 1049 during the 59 day event!)."

Pretty khool, huh?
I think Jack is thinking about when he got to be a sled dog with his friend Moon last September at the TOTTSHR Hike....
remember.......remember.......remember......
Next stop......Alaska!
Woo can still pawticipate, just follow the links above and sign up.
See woo on the trail!

30 minutes of walking a day - that's sounds so good to us, but our human is really a slacker - we are lucky if we get 30 minutes a week lately. But we are OK with that today - we have quite the winter wonderland in our yard right now. Off we go to play.


Happy Friday, Phantom and Thunder

I must bark, you and Jack-a-roos look so nice walking together!

This sounds like a really neat idea, but unfortunately, Grammy's got a foot that is really giving her a lot of problems, so we don't think we'd be able to participate unless OUR OWN walking time could be counted... like when she takes us out into the side and back pastures and sits in a chair while we all run on the hills and pasture areas.

I will do my best to get in some walkies in honor of woo, Jack and Moo. I hope woo get some snow to play in. We got a little yesterday but it's not the good fluffy stuff.
