Tim Thiessen of Leadville races in the four-dog competition during the Grand Mesa Summit Challenge sled dog race on Feb. 12, Thiessen spends the winter racing his dogs, and said because he lives “out in the middle of nowhere,” his dogs are great company.

MUSH!

Sled dogs love life on the run

The before and after a race is a stark contrast.
Or is that a bark contrast?
With the excitement of the run building, dogs go a little wacko. Barks, yelps and howls of all pitches fill the air, as the dogs are unable to contain their excitement.
Ready to run, ready to have some fun.
