Ok, I have to add to this one!

You know you're addicted when you use up your vacation time to HANDLE for another musher because you aren't in this race.

You're addicted when you wake your spouse up at 2 am because it a full moon bright as daylight, and the aurora borealis is so great that you got to hitch up a team and go sledding.

You know you are addicted to sled dogs when you mount a video camera in your sled so you can go home and analyze the run, or just watch the tape when you can't be out training.

You know your addiicted when it is 18 above zero in South Carolina (thats cold here :) and you go out in the middle of the night in only thin sweats to check on the dogs, leaving the puppies curled by the warm fire in the house, and you get locked out of the house and rather than climb through an unlocked window you go to the barn and grab an extra flake of hay and jump in with the dogs to let them keep you warm. And your alarm is the howling faces above yours at first sun up.

If you can tell that a dog will or wont like the food just by how it smells.
When you can tell which dog is barking from some where between 40 or more dogs.
When you spend all your extra time is divoted to making next weekends team or your next litter.
when you stay up all night to make sure your sick dog is ok even if it's out side at 10 below.

You know your addicted when:
*Every one of your future dogs names are picked out and you wouldn't want it any other way
*Even the slightest thing that has to do with sled dog racing will make you jump for joy and your family looks at you like your nuts!
*When you love it sooo.. much you don't care what you wear outside as long as long as its cold and you can sled.
*Whan you tell people you are going to move to alaska and they think your insane
*Every school project you do is on sled dog racing
*Life wouldn't be the same without it
All your friends at school and even people you don't know, know that you love sled dog racing

* Happy trails with what winter we have left!

*The teachers do a poll onwho will win the Iditarod and they ask your help
*When your friends tell you about their weekend and you tell them how you either got a new sled, got a new dog, or went on a good run
*When you use sled dog racing as a motivation for homework

Hey there----

*When you get into a snarling match with your team dog over a PBandJ you left unattended.
*When algyval becomes your product of choice for personal joint pain.
*The second you even think, "I have four what difference does two more really make".

Peace, Bear

Your addicted when you can't figure out why:

- Anyone would take vacation to the Caribbean in the middle of winter
- To "get away from the cold"
- Someone would not want to be out Feeding/ watering/running/changing straw/poop scooping in -20 degree weather.
- Anyone wouldn't want to be woken up at four in the morning by joyous howls of your dog team
- "Extra snow" is a bad thing to some people
- Your non-mushing friends get bummed by a blizzard
- People get excited about "spring" coming
