Dogged N.J. musher survives call of Iditarod

You forgot to mention how cold it was. when its "minus-45 degree temperatures; the demise of two dogs on one team, apparently frozen to death;" you need to mention it more than once because people will think it's a typo. It's cold enough that your bones never forget it. I had to deal with the winter of 77-78 in western Pa. It was only 30 below with wind chill and my lane was 3/4 of a mile long I had to walk it to get to my truck. I remember how difficult it was to put the tire chains on and off. even a hammer couldn't break the ice out of the clips. I would warm my bare hands under the truck heater then put them on the clips to thaw them. It took two batteries to start the truck.
They were in dire straights up their and i agree the GPS saved their Butts

Dogs die horribly every year in this "sporting event". I fail to see how it makes sense to commemorate a living-saving event with one that ends so many lives. It's animal cruelty, and its shameful.
