The 52nd running of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race has a winner! Dallas Seavey claimed the title at 5:16 PM Alaska time. He had 10 of my K9 friends at the finish line. The entire race took him 9 days, 2 hours, 16 minutes, and 8 seconds. This was his 6th Iditarod victory making him the most celebrated musher in Iditarod history. Dallas is only 37 years old, but he has run this race 13 times. He was in the top ten 11 of those 13 times, and winner 6 times. Awooooo! His K9 athletes are amazing.

Matt Hall claimed 2nd place, Jessie Holmes came in 3rd, and Jeff Deeter was 4th. The first woman, Paige Drobny just crossed the finish line in 5th place. Teams will continue to cross under the Burled Arch over the next few days – keep watching. All the teams who cross the finish line are winners.

Tail wags,
