ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Musher Nicolas Petit lost a huge lead in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Monday when his dog team refused to keep going after he yelled at one of the animals.

Dog gone

Workers need to UNITE against the man.

"When a man's dog turns against him it is time for a wife to pack her trunk and go home to mama."

-----Mark Twain

@Le Petomane, there is also:

"Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in."

-- Mark Twain

The dog teams are like siblings. They may fight amongst themselves, but if an outsider tangles with one of them the siblings present a united front. A friend who has a dog sled team told me that she learned early on to let the dogs settle issues between themselves.

I approve of this situation's outcome.


Millennial dogs.

Smart dog. The Iditarod is cruel. Please don't support it, and don't support companies that support it.

Sounds like a team of cats. Couldn't be...they never would have started.

Another Mark Twain quote--

"If a man could be crossed with a cat, it would improve the man but deteriorate the cat."
