We Live to Race?

By Gms S.
Indiana, Age 6

After reading the issue in Scholastic about the Iditarod, we as a class feel that the race is not cruel to animals. The following are just a few reasons we are in favor of the race: 1) Mushers take care of their dogs 365 days. Sometimes giving things up for their dogs. 2) Dogs and mushers are allowed to stop at any point in the race. 3) Sick dogs are given medical care and are flown home. 4) They find good homes for dogs not able to race. 5)This race is optional no one is forced to race.
