Mike Races Again is a fictional story based on a true
story about a sled dog named Mike. It is the story of a musher, or
dog driver in Alaska, training for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. While
in Alaska training for the race Mike stepped into a snare trap,
almost losing a back foot. A trap was on the trail where the
team was running one day during a training run. Mike had to be
carried in the sled for two hours to get back to the kennel. Then
the journey to see a vet, surgery and his miraculous recovery
allowing him to start the 2009 Iditarod sled dog race.
It is truly an inspirational story showing the
amazing resilience for Alaskan Huskies. It also shows the bond
between dog mushers and their dogs and the lengths they will go to
insure their dogs good health. It truly demonstrates what it is what
it is to be a team.
