Sled dogs probably evolved in Mongolia between 35,000 and 30,000 years ago. Scientists believe that humans migrated north of the Arctic Circle with their dogs about 25,000 years ago. About 3,000 years ago, they began using them to pull sleds so they could help with transoprting the bounty from hunting and fishing.


Sled dogs have been used in CanadaLaplandGreenlandSiberia,ChukotkaNorwayFinland, and Alaska.

The History of Sled Dogs

About Diphtheria


Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that spreads easily and occurs quickly. It mainly affects the nose and throat. Children under 5 and adults over 60 years old are particularly at risk for contracting the infection.



In its early stages, diphtheria can be mistaken for a bad sore throat. A low-grade fever and swollen neck glands are the other early symptoms.


The toxin, or poison, caused by the bacteria can lead to a thick coating (or membrane) in the nose, throat, or airway, which makes a diphtheria infection different from other more common infections that cause sore throat (such as strep throat). This coating is usually fuzzy gray or black and can cause breathing problems and difficulty in swallowing.


As the infection progresses, someone may:

  • have difficulty breathing or swallowing

  • complain of double vision

  • have slurred speech

  • even show signs of going into shock (skin that's pale and cold, rapid heartbeat, sweating, and an anxious appearance)

Since a vaccine has been created, Diphtheria is very rare in the United States and Europe, where health officials have been immunizing children against it for decades.


You can’t compare it to any other competitive event in the world! A race covering  1000 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer. She throws jagged mountain ranges, frozen river, dense forest, desolate tundra and miles of windswept coast at the mushers and their dog teams. Add to that temperatures far below zero, winds that can cause a complete loss of visibility, the hazards of overflow, long hours of darkness and treacherous climbs and side hills, and you have the Iditarod. A race extraordinaire, a race only possible in Alaska.
