A different kind of Alaskan dog race

These Scottish Terriers aren’t quite mushers, but it sure looks like they’ve learned how to move pretty fast in the snow. We’re really, really glad these photos are from Alaska and not from our neck of the woods. While we know that it’s not over ’til it’s over in March in Canada, we are keeping our fingers crossed that it is indeed over.

Here’s something else Scottish Terriers in Alaska have to deal with. If Bridget ever saw a moose, she would bark the place down. The most exciting it gets around here is raccoons, and, believe me, there are lots of them in Toronto.
