Sorry for missing yesterday. It was a very mild and warm day but the forecast said some nasty weather was on the way so had to get out and make sure everything was in shelter or tied down (strong winds predicted) and some odd ends yard work were wrapped up. By the time that was done, I was a “whupped puppy” and semi brain dead! I barely did email and a quick pass thru my Facebook page, and a check on the ongoing Yukon Quest which is down to about another 24 hours of race. It is the “other big one”, also 1000 miles and some say the toughest of all. The weather has cooperated fairly well this year for them; medium temperatures and no big blizzards. Five guys are in the lead with about 40-50 miles separating the current leader from the fifth one back; it is still a real race as so much can happen! It is kind of like if the Kentucky Derby went on for a week–you can go crazy!
Okay–drawings for this party! That is always a key subject, huh? Since I am talking about dogs this time, I will of course do my usual give away of an ebook copy of these releases, one each for a couple of comments I randomly select but as a special one time thing, I plan to treat one commenter to a year’s subscription to The Whole Dog Journal which has a wealth of info for any breed of dog or you might have or hope to get or a darling plush stuffed Husky pup from the Iditarod store where all the profits go to support the race. Winner’s choice, and either of the two books in eformat also! However like with the lottery, you can’t win if you don’t play so get in there and say something to me!
