Dogs can really make their owners do crazy things. One dog owner was forced to join a winter race because one of their doggos really wanted to participate.
– A dog and a dog owner joined a winter race for the first time.
– The dog owner said they never did this in the past and never thought they would.
– The dog did not mind being a house dog and not a sled dog and finished the six-mile race.
The dog, a black Labrador named Calibre, and the dog owner joined the race using a kicksled on Mount Lorne in Yukon. The annual event is hosted by the Dog Powered Sports Association of Yukon. The dog and the dog owner competed in the six-mile recreation class. The dogs did not win anything because there were no prizes for the recreation class but Calibre’s human said that they enjoyed the run and the scenic view.
The vice president of the Dog Powered Sports Association said that any dog who wants to race can join. He noted that not everybody has a sled dog so they accepted house doggos for the event.
