Hello, My name is Madison S. I can't wait for the iditarod race 2017. I have a few Questions for you about the Race. First i know you have 60 dogs counting puppies and younger dogs that can't race yet. Can you send me some pics of the puppies you have? Second, Was there ever one point you almost had to withdraw from the race? Last i love how much you love horses and animals.What pushed you towards dog racing instead of horse racing. Can't wait for you to Win!! From Madison S
