Iditarod – The Real Start

Today is the real start for the Iditarod race (yesterday was the ceremonial start, but it does not really count). But as we are preparing for the start of the race, we thought we would share a fun video with you. This song – and video – makes me laugh. Hope you enjoy it.

    I always enjoyed watching the ceremonial start when I lived in Anchorage. Such an amazing event.

    Hope all is well with the race! I also like water after a hike…it’s getting to be that season and Mom has started carrying my bowl and water around again!

    I’m psyched – coverage gets better by the year, and my aunt is filming footage to send back when the race is over. If your dogs can see TV, this should get interesting in a hurry…

    That song and video are pretty funny! For some reason it reminds me of the “Canyonero” song from “The Simpsons”!

    It was cute and the music definitely appropriate

    Thank you!

    This just proves what we have been saying. All those sleds going across the frozen North and not one pulled by a reindeer. So much for that ugly rumor that Santas sleigh is pulled by reindeer. The Iditarod is proof that the sleigh is pulled by Reindogs!

    What a happy bunch of foot poundin’ pups they are!

    Bwaaaaa ha ha! That was just awesome! I was laughing a lot during that! He forgot to splice in some greyhound genes, that would have helped more than the bear genes! Thanks for the morning laugh!

    Chuckles! And, how did he manage to keep the antlers on that running dog for so long?? “And the bear just wanted to hibernate…” – he said about the bear genes that he’d added. Lots of very funny little lines!

  17. The OP Pack on March 7, 2010 at 9:25 am

    We have not seen this before – so much fun. Loved the video and the music. Like Khyra’s Mom, the tune is already stuck in Mom’s head. And those genes – so the roadrunner is to blame for all our running, eh?

    Thanks fur sharing that!

    My mom will also have that tune racing through her head today as she’s zooming down and up I81!
