On Wednesday we went to Iditarod headquarters and got to see some of the mushers arrive and have their dogs checked by veterinarians.
This is one of the group of vets that was at the headquarters.
Skyping with Mrs. Grossimon's class was fun. The dogs were excited to be on camera.
This is a sled that one of the mushers is going to take out on the trail.
Here are the dogs hanging out by their musher's truck.
After headquarters, we went to Dream a Dream dog farm. Musher Cindy Abbott is training here with Vern Halter who owns this dog farm. This dog was so much fun and loved playing peek-a-boo. His name was Kiwi.
The dogs were really excited to see all of us. Some were so excited they just jumped up on you.

This is one of the mushers getting their dog out of the truck to get ready for the vet check.
Mrs. Brewer has to get dog kisses whenever she can.
In the back of one of the mushers trucks, you could see some of their equipment they will pack in their sled.
This dog was waiting to be unloaded for his vet check. He enjoyed being petted so much he didn't want you to stop.
This dog was very loveable and kept flopping down to have his belly scratched.
