'Tis the season that things begin to slow down in the mushing world... but one thing many kennels are doing about this time is to start harness breaking some of the younger puppies and taking them on some short runs.

Last summer we were lucky enough to host some pups from Squid Acres Kennel - some of you may remember the "Dukes of Hazzard" litter...?? Well here they are! All grown up and running for just their third time in harness! :D

Isn't this fun?!?

Just ONE more team on the trail tonight! Cindy Abbott is heading for Nome and the Iditarod Red Lantern!

The tracker has her about 37 miles outside of Nome, so she may not make it to the banquet tonight - but we think she'll still have many great stories to share!

In 7th Place, King is Happy But Ready for Rest — and Pizza

At the Nome finish line on Wednesday, Jeff King waxed nostalgic, full of stories, about a very memorable Iditarod this year. But he was also ready for rest.

Hey Race Fans! It's Thursday morning for us... and boy, are we happy to have the team in Nome! Pretty sure that our crew here got some good sleep last night - and didn't dream of race stats...!

We took last night "off" from Facebook as we spent time with the dogs here at the Homestead, and welcomed home our three dropped dogs: Earl, Menace and Nash! All are doing very well and are happy to be home with their buds. ;)

The dog team will head out from Nome this afternoon, while their musher will stay in Nome until the Finish Banquet on Sunday evening. Melanie and Bruno will be on hand in Anchorage to meet the team while Steph will join them later from Nome. Melanie will begin working tirelessly to massage any sore muscles or stiffness, as well as just make sure that they are all happy campers - that's her favorite part of the job. :)

Before we get back to work in the office and start planning for the next race (the Kobuk 440) that starts in TWO weeks! - we'd like to give a big shout out to ALL of the teams that have crossed the finish line in this years' Iditarod since we left you last...
