Just Pictures...



Mom planned to do an interview - Questions and Answers - but like so many other things lately, it didn't happen.  Dr. Berger sent us some beautiful pictures from the Iditarod that I wanted to share with all of you!
Arriving!
The "START"! Wait!  Do the sleds have to stop for red lights??
Brrrrrr!  -30 degrees??  Are you kidding??  Too darn cold for my little chihuahua paws!
This is how the pooped pups slept!
Notice the booties.
I think it would only be fair if the HUMANS slept in the snow on hay too!
Emi in the tundra.   Hmmm... no trees?  Where's a dawg to pee??
Seriously!  Where did these dawgs PEE???
Hmmm... Maybe they didn't pee for fear of the icicles that might form...  In retrospect, my late brother Ziggy would have loved Alaska with all the snow and sub-zero temperatures.  As for me, I'm a summer dawg - which I suppose is a good thing because the only sled I could pull would be one for a mouse!

Maybe that's why they run so fast, so they can find a nice warm tree to pee on? It'd make me run!! :p

We heard from the lady at
the Dog Daze blog that the dogs let it fly as they are running - can you even imagine that? Phantom and Thunder both love to sleep on top of the snow - go figure. We don't know about Ciara yet.

Thanks for sharing the fun pics.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

It looks way too cold for my Chi paws, too! I hate being wet and cold. Like you, warm and sunny is my preference. Brr.

I could never be a snow dog. It's way too cold for my little body. I think I would shiver to death. Plus, my bladder is way to small. I think you need a big bladder to be a snow dog.

I'm sure I would love the snow, but here in Hawaii it's hard to get to.
