Last night we stayed up to celebrate the 3rd place finish of the Musher and the Pretty Curly Tails in the Don Bowers Memorial 200!
It was very exciting in the North Wapiti house last night! Cricket even came in from guard duty to have a celebratory waffle with the rest of us!
I'm also happy to report that the anti-mooses screeching actually worked! The Musher said that she didn't see any Mooses the entire race! Or course, once she finished, you all dutifully stopped screeching, which explain the two suicidal Mooses that jumped in front of the dog truck on the way back to Willow... but no Mooses came close to the truck. Silly Mooses.
So, here is the Musher waiting to race
And here is the Musher and Pretty Curly Tails coming in to the finish line
Here are the Pretty Curly Tails making a bee-line to the truck after the finish
Here is a really cool picture of the Willow dog yard with the Northern Lights thingies
Yep, you guessed it... little firecracker Casey led for about 80 miles of the race and the Musher says Casey has secured a spot on the Iditarod team!!!
The Musher will be posting her own blog of the adventures, so I'm going to sign off because I have to pick up all of the balloons and confetti.
