More Iditarod 2008 Photos.

The start of the 2008 Iditarod, Anchorage to Nome, sled dog classic. Anchorage, Alaska.

Hey Folks

Another image from yesterday’s start of the 2008 Iditarod sled dog race. With over 1000 miles ahead of them, these pups seem to be starting out pretty hard, to me. 🙂

Cheers

    That’s just a great shot. It’s amazing the energy these dogs have! I would like to know how they train these dogs to do what they do. When I’ve followed the other Iditarod races, it seems like the dogs are pushed to the limit of their endurance.I hesitate to say abused, but what do you know about it? Just curious.

    Hey Beth

    Thanks.I wouldn’t say the dogs are abused – they love what they do. And the mushers that I’ve spoken to love their dogs, they treat them pretty well, from what I’ve seen. Now the dogs seem willing to push themselves to the limit of their endurance, for sure .. which is what they’re bred to do .. whether that’s a good thing is another discussion. 🙂

    Cheers
