Schmoe on BLM Twitter Chat!

Schmoe will be taking part in a live Twitter chat: #BLMIditaChat on Wednesday, January 20th. The Alaska Bureau of Land Management is hosting the event "Sled Dog Tales: Talk with Alaska Sled Dogs" for students to ask Schmoe and other sled dogs from around the state about the Iditarod and their life as a sled dog.

Of course, as Schmoe doesn't have opposable thumbs and can't touch type, he will get some human help to answer the questions.

Teachers, students and families of all grade levels are invited to take part. The flyer, above, has details about how you can join in the fun.

Congratulations, Schmoe. We know you will share your insight and wisdom will all on Twitter. Don't, divulge any kennel secrets though.

Tell Schmoe he doesn't need thumbs. He can use Mac dictation!

Schmoe was very restrained, considering he is known in these parts for his HOWLLLLS!!!

He explained what he ate on the trail, especially "BLT's" - and then he couldn't resist telling a questioner what his most exciting thing was from his sled dog experience - "Winning the Copper Basin 300, winning the Yukon Quest 1000 and coming in 2nd in the Iditarod all in the same season!!!"

Quite the resume!!!

Woof, woof, woof!!!

Thanks for this recap, Margaret. I checked Twitter and didn't see any tweets from him. Thought maybe he hadn't participated. Way to go, Schmoe!
