Travis introduces 2013 Iditarod team member COPPER. We bought Copper this fall. Copper is an outstanding cheer leader and has a really smooth gait — he runs beautifully down the trail. When you are watching sled dogs, you always look for the dogs that make it look effortless and that’s Copper to a T. He’s a lover at heart and enjoys running near the front of the team. He is not, by definition a “lead dog” but prefers to run one or two pairs back from the front.
Copper can be a little grumpy but enjoys running next to his best friend, KERMIT. Copper and Kermit ran on Jen Seavey’s Iditarod team in 2009 and ran all the way to Nome together under her leadership. They will be doing the same this year with Travis.
