Foreign Secretary backs call to ban shock collars
In a video posted on Ross Thomson MP’s twitter account, the Foreign Secretary states: “I am absolutely shocked to discover that electric collars are being used on dogs as utensils of discipline and education.

Kennel Club welcomes consultation on third-party puppy sale ban
The Kennel Club, whose own regulations explicitly ban the sale of puppies to third parties, has long called for an end to the sale of puppies in pet shops and by other third party retailers, as puppy farmers often use such outlets to sell their pups to unsuspecting members of the public who never see the terrible conditions that the pups were raised in.

Iditarod 2021Start

The Iditarod 1,000 Mile race starts today!

But before Ryne goes flying over the start line behind her incredible team, the microchips of all the dogs are checked and urine samples are collected. Microchips are tiny computer chips, the size of a rice grain, that go underneath the dog’s skin around the neck or shoulder area. Each chip has a unique identification number. The Iditarod uses this to keep track of dogs and especially to make sure drop-dogs get returned to the correct owner.

If you’re following along, then you met the final team yesterday and read Ryne’s thoughts on the individual team members.

Now, here’s the line up for the race start! Dolly and King Louie are the first leading pair of this adventure… and they’re as excited as the rest of the team to reach the start chute.

I’m sure time is a weird concept this morning; dragging out with the ready-to-race-already urge while simultaneously flying by with the constant to-do tasks and last minute touches here and there. But time doesn’t stop and the team enters the chute, waiting for the countdown to reach zero.

The energy stays as they officially take off; the harness-banging and loud barks turning into the serious “game face” mode.

”There goes bib number fourteen, Ryne Olson…”

Good luck, Ryne!!! And good luck to Dolly, King Louie, Goblin, Thresher, Etta, Smoky, Oryx, Wingman, Faff, Maple, Mario, Bowser, Uno and Yoshi!!!

Stay tuned for more blog posts and updates of the team’s progress throughout the race.
