|Tanner in "his" chair. :)|

Today was the ceremonial start to the 40th Iditarod race in Anchorage, Alaska. I have been interested in the Iditarod for years, and have made it a goal to get there one day. As I watched the events today online (with my Iditarod Insider subscription) I noticed something about the dogs...they look just like my dog, Tanner! As I watched with my mother-in-law, Cindy, we couldn't believe how Tanner looked like them. We decided that we should get a sled for Tanner to pull us. He certainly has enough energy! Several years ago I even bought Tanner the booties for his feet, just like the race dogs. He wasn't a fan. He did wear them once when it was really icy outside. It was funny watching him try to kick them off of his feet. Needless to say, we didn't put him through that torture again. We love our pup.
