I love sled dogs! Balto is one of my heroes! I have some advice for people who race sled dogs outside in the snow. If it is really cold out, you can cover your dogs' feet with powdery snow. Make sure the snow is real powdery.This way, your dogs' feet won't freeze! Thanks for creating such a cool spot for sled dogs!
