The mushers start pulling in with all of their dogs. Each dog is checked by a veterinarian. They look at all aspects of the dog. They look at their feet, listen to their heart, take blood and do EKG's when necessary.
We were able to talk to the vets and the mushers. We also took time to love on the dogs. They were very excited when they rolled in and they were enjoying all of us there to pet them as well.
