Took in the pre-race festivities and the start of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Race in Duluth, MN on 1-30.
This dog resembles my son's dog except that Cooper has longer legs and a skinnier mid-section than this one. Color/markings are almost identical.
The Musher said this Alaskan Husky has some German Shorthair in it. Name is Copper.
This is my Son's dog, Cooper.
A friend was handling for a Musher of the Mid-distance race, Amanda Vogel, below.
After the "Meet the Mushers" the dogs go back in to relax and settle down till the start of the race.
