Great photos, thanks for the post! The dog tag shot is artistic and an interesting change of pace from shots of dogs, sleds and mushers. Of course, I love shots of dogs, sleds, and mushers, but this provides insight into one more piece of race prep. One of you awesome SPK handlers had to take the time to put 38 of these onto the dogs - guess that's part of the never ending to do list mentioned in the 1/29/2013 post.

Dogs and mushers continue to look awesome, thanks again for news from the trail. Go teams!
