BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

FROM: Mark Nordman, Race Marshal

Earlier today (at approximately 12 noon AKDT) Iditarod Race officials sent a plane from Nome to Shaktoolik to pick up scratched musher Alan Peck’s dog team.

On the flight back to Nome the aircraft encountered significant turbulence. By the time the pilot was able to land in Golovin, it was discovered that one of the dogs (Cirque, a 2 year-old female) was deceased.

The dogs were in good condition when loaded on the plane. A necropsy will be conducted to make every attempt to determine the cause of death.

this is outrageous - it seems the whole thing is totally mismanaged; basic procedures to ensure these poor dog's saftey seem to be nonexistent.

the race owes the supporters and the public a full explanation and a commitment to change the level of concern for the dogs.

Anonymous....are you a nut-ball? You seem to have no idea of what you are talking about! You need to improve your knowledge about the entire dog race before you make comments about the dog race. Thanks for nothing!
