The Iditarod dogs

I look at the dogs and I look at Lance Mackey and then I look at them together and think that PETA should be using them as poster children for how dogs and humans best interact. Both species vibrant, healthy, athletic, involved in a project they do well together…. that the way all pets should get to live their lives, with purpose and love and respect. And even as I write this, Blue and Blondie look at me and explain that their purpose in life is to get me to walk every day for my health and then clean up all the food the birds drop around their cages for the rest of the day – in between naps, of course. It’s a good life for my dogs and for Lance’s dogs.
