"What happens between when a dog gets injured and when the dog gets dropped at a checkpoint? Does the musher continue running the dog (I see enough active, happy-looking three-legged dogs to get that it's possible)? Or does the dog ride? Is sled riding part of what the dogs are trained to do?I wanted to give you a good, full response, but it would take me more time than I've got to write it up. So, I went outside and found our good friend Dr. Mike Davis -- who is a race vet here in Paxson -- and asked him to talk about it. Thanks Doc Mike!
