Canadian Challenge - The Start

Howdy Ho Everybodies!!!!

It's your on the scene Roving Border Collie Reporter, Bet, here!

I must say, the leftovers from the banquet were VERY tasty!

I think they were dinner roll things, or something... no clue actually.

Anyhoo, most of you probably know that the last time the Musher came to the Canadian Challenge, things didn't go so well.  They went BRILLIANT for Richard and his team, but the Musher's team caught an oogie stomach thing (and no, we have ruled out that Richard's team did NOT poison the Musher's team), and she was forced to scratch at Sucker River because the Pretty Curly Tails did not feel well at all.

She had to pull into a town and find a phone to call Musher Mark to bring the dog truck and all.

They all recovered quickly, but it wasn't a good experience for the Musher.

One of the demons in her list of things to do was to come back to the Canadian Challenge and finish it.  So here she is, and after selecting Bib #2, there she went with her team of Pretty Curly Tails.

The weather is nice and cold, just how the Pretty Curly Tails and Musher like it. 

After the first checkpoint, the Musher is in the lead.

If you don't know it already, all of the mushers have a GPS and you can follow the race along with everyone by going to the Canadian Challenge site and clicking on the live tracking button thingie in the near middle of the page.

In case you wanted a picture of the start, here is the only one we have

 Yeah, um... well... Richard and Briffany were busy with getting the Musher and the Pretty Curly Tails into the chute and off without a hitch, and ... well... I don't have thumbs, so this is the best I could do!

Sorry for the lack of details, but Richard has the iphone and the interwebs aren't very sturdy around here.  More later!!!!
