Not This Year

Lexie wants everyone to know that the Iditarod started the first Saturday of March and around one thousand dogs were busy making the run from Anchorage to Nome last week in Alaska. That's a 1131 mile trip. She would also like you know that she once traveled from Houston to Little Rock in a Ford Contour. It was grueling, but after stopping at a McDonalds for a pee and water break, she made it just fine.

Lexie was rooting for the 2 all-siberian teams in this years race: Rob Loveman, a 52 year old nuclear physicist and Blake Matray, a 41 year old Air Force Academy grad. Both are rookies and not having the best of luck this year. As a matter of fact, Loveman withdrew a couple of days ago and Matray is in second to last position.

The winner of last year's Last Great Race on Earth was Lance Mackey. And as of an hour ago, his team was in the lead with just over 200 miles left to go.

In the meantime, Lexie will be on the back porch if you need her.

  4. Thinking about the Iditarod makes me tired. I can't imagine actually doing it, and I wouldn't have to do any of the pulling either.

  12. Oh, they are just so beautiful! I wanted a S.Husky but the guy at the rescue would not adopt us one. Something about us being too laid back(lazy) and them needing lots of exercise. Looks like yours are getting lots of exercise. ;)

  13. What a beautiful dog! Unfortunately, Eddie would die a slow and cold death if he were to try - we just shaved (and by "shave" I mean "butchered") his hair last week!
