YQ300: Dropped Dog Update - Spark

Aliy left Sparkie with Wes and Wendy at Central. Just before they came into the checkpoint Aliy noticed Spark had a bit of a “head bob” indicating a limp in his front end. She had the veterinarians check him over and she decided to leave him. She left him on the line while the team rested in Central as he was cozily snuggled with his team mates then Wendy took him to the truck before Aliy got ready to leave.

The team has two long legs in front of them along Birch Creek which is likely to be very hard and fast and that type of trail could aggravate a sore wrist or shoulder.

Don’t worry, Spark is happy… Spark is ALWAYS happy whether he is running, resting or playing.
