The Junior Iditarod was moved to Cantwell this year because of lack of snow in other parts of the state. It was fun to see the puppies and their young owners. There is something so inspiring about young teens so devoted to animals and a sport that requires so much of them. This baby just melted my heart. 7 weeks old and the cutest little hat! It was Mister C’s birthday and he celebrated it at the Junior Iditarod. We met Newton Marshall the Jamaican Dog Sledder. He has ran the Iditarod four times previously but not this year. Conditions have not been that great.
