Race Stats๐Ÿคช

Hellooo! The Iditarod has almost come to a close. Weโ€™re still waiting on our last musher to come into nome, but until then let me give yโ€™all the stats. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Thomas Waerner is the winner of the 2020 Iditarod! He finished on Wednesday with his lead dogs K2 and Bark! Mitch Seavey finished in second. Only an hour later Jessie Royer came in third! Brent Sass finished in forth. In fifth came Aaron Burmeister. Then Joar Leifseth Ulsom took home sixth. In seventh was Paige Drobny. Ryan Redington took eighth (we saw him at Apostle! I was passed by his team there! Iโ€™m such a nerd๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚). Jessie Holmes finished in ninth place, and Travis Beals closed the top ten.

So many more mushers made the top twenty (Kelly Maxiner came in seventeenth!) but I want to talk about the dogs. Every team that came to the finish had dogs jumping and barking to keep going! Thatโ€™s what we love too see! The dogs love this sport so much and we wouldnโ€™t have it any other way! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

IDITAROD 2020!!!!!!๐Ÿฅณ

Heyyyyy! โš ๏ธ Iโ€™m a nerd when it comes to the Iditarod! โš ๏ธ

This is like our Super Bowl! (and yes, I even made a fantasy team ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) The Race started on Sunday and we donโ€™t know when the last musher will come in this year. There are 56 teams on the trail right now and there is no clear winner (our money is on Jessie Royer). Anything can happen out there.

My personal favorite musher, Kelly Maxiner, is running Dallas Seaveyโ€™s team this year! Dallas has won the Iditarod 4 times so Kelly has a good shot at winning this year with these dogs! What happens if you win the Iditarod?? Well, your lead dogs get a treat and to wear โ€˜the yellow harnessโ€™ this is a yellow rose wreath that goes over the dogsโ€™ heads. The musher, on the other hand, get a $50,000 dollar prize and also a new Ram pick-up truck.

The Iditarod is a 1,000 mile sled dog race in Alaska. Just like with the Super Bowl there are some โ€˜proโ€™ mushers out there (the Seavey kennel for example) that could take home the prize. Do not overlook the dogs though!!!! These guys are the real athletes on the trail, this is what they have been training for all year! They love to run and pull so this is like a party for them!

Thatโ€™s all I got today, Iโ€™ll keep giving yโ€™all updates on the musher Super Bowl!!!

Name Game!!

Hey everyone!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ Thanks for all your help in naming our logo dog! The names were: Qana, Nikita, Nova, Aurora, Logo, Max, Tiva, Snickers, Future, Denali, Boomer, Mauki, Storm, Chinook, Juneau, Christof, Diva, and lastly Peanut Butter!

Let me start by saying that all the names are Amazing!! I do, however, have to take away names so we can decide! Now we have: Logo, Max, Snickers, Boomer, Mauki, Juneau, Diva, and Peanut Butter! Now Iโ€™ll have to take away a few more, leaving; Logo, Max, Snickers, Mauki , and Peanut Butter.

We are now in round 3 of the Name Game! We have five names left, letโ€™s make it three! We now have: Logo, Max, and Peanut Butter. Sadly, we must take one name away now leaving only: Logo and Peanut Butter. This is the last round… and the winner of Name Game is…. ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

๐Ÿ† Peanut Butter!!! ๐Ÿ†

This is Peanut Butter, but weโ€™re going to shorten that… and call him Peanut!!

Thanks for playing! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Warm Weather

Hellooo! Welcome back! So we need your guysโ€™ help! We need to name our logo dog and we want your suggestions!! This is him! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ (comment what his name should be!)

What should his name be??

Warm weather is a bummer for us and the dogs. They love the cold because thatโ€™s when we run! But why not run in the heat too? Well, first of all, our sleds need to be on snow. The sled canโ€™t move on bare ground… Secondly, Imagine running in a gym, Iโ€™m pretty sure you would rather have the AC on, not the heater! Warm weather is pain in the neck to mushers. We know the dogs want to be out with the sled but… Letโ€™s just say summer can take its time to get to us! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!!๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Races

Hellooo!! I’m back after two weeks of races! So last post I was about to go to the Apostle Island Sled Dog Race!! Now I’ve finished that and gone to the Mid-Minnesota 150!

Apostle Islands was amazing!! I raced in a 20 mile, two day long race for the first time! It went so well! The temperature was not ideal, but we pulled through and had a great time! My dad and I ran at the same time but I only saw him once… You see, my bib number was before his so I left sooner then he did. The dogs did great! Overall it was a very good race!

The Mid-Minnesota is a different story… Don’t get me wrong, the race went well but I didn’t get to go on the trail. I got sick right after Apostle Islands and didn’t recover in time for the race… I chose to scratch (forfeit) for the safety of my team. I wasn’t fully intact so I don’t know if I could have reacted in time if something had happened! (I had also not been able to stay awake for more then two hours while I was sick) My dad still went on to the race and did really well! The dogs did their first 35 miles!! I wish I had been able to do it but the dogs’ safety comes first!

Thanks for reading!!! See y’all next week!!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Happy Valentines Day!! ๐Ÿ’—
