Our favorite sporting event of the year starts today - the Iditarod! It's every sled dog's dream to pawticipate, and if we can't, then we can woo from wherever we are to cheer on these fabulous athletes! Mom said that the distance these dogs cover would be like a human a running a full marathon every day for 40 days straight - whew!

We're rooting for Karen Ramstead and her North Wapiti team of purebred Siberians! Go Sibes!!!! This pawtographed picture of Karen's 2007 team, aren't they beauties?

Lots of us Sibes are posting about this today, but be sure to go over to the Thundering Herd - they even have a video from Pretty Sled Dogs, Karen's video about her beautiful team. Great music, too. How can woo not love and admire the spirit of our breed and this race?

a-roos to yous,
'jack a-roo & moo too

Wouldn't it be a kick to ride with Karen?!?!? Err... I mean to run with her Sibes, of course. Yeah... that's it. Running.
