Just LOOK at those faces and tell me they aren't doing EXACTLY what they want to be doing! I LOVE sled dogs--the bigger the better.
Banshee is the official mascot of the race and she has her own Facebook page here. If you have a bit of time to kill--or just love looking at some GREAT pictures of dogs (and her 'brothers'--two cats and Seamus, who is in training to be the new mascot)--go on over there and spend some time. I don't know if there is a happier dog around than Banshee--and she is quite good-looking, as well.
Both pictures I 'lifted' from Banshee's Facebook page. I don't think she'd mind, though. ;)
