Seppela then turned to a mon- strous critter over in the corner, vho was lapping indifferently at a pail of water. "Why the hell don't you drink hat water, Snigruk? If you drank t now you wouldn't have to slow us down on the trail while you ate a bushel or two of snow. And vhadda ya mean running your heart out in the first 10 miles of the race?

When I hit the trail with Bonzo out in front I know .1 ir> omg to get there, even if you throw blizzard and an avalanche in ou- ace. He's the best lead dog in Alaska, and that's saying plenty." I told him how more than a. few xjople considered that 1925 diph- hena dash to Nome something more than a publicity stunt. "Publicity stunt, eh? Well, it ould take a pretty crazy sort of uy to hit out over a 200-mile trail the thermometer down to 40 r oO below, and it snowing so hard ou couldn't see the lead dog a'! or a little publicity. "Let me tell you "something.
