Don't forget, however, that the Iditarod is supposed to emulate the famous 
race when Baldo brought serum to Nome (or something like that)........it IS 
based on a true event.......

     AND there was a team of purebred Malemutes that also successfully 
completed the Itidarod a few years ago..........all bred by
Nancy Russell of Wisconsin...........

   The Husky is the speed dog, the Malemute the load puller..........don't 
know exactly where the Samoyed comes in, tho!

dollars in prize money and endorsements and winning is everything.....these 
mushers would breed to a cheetah if it was genetically possible...This isn't 
a criticism of them.....they have a goal...and they are doing whatever it 
takes to meet that goal. Promoting a certain "type" of dog is not one of 
them.
