do. After the team was in Nome, Martin
Buser, winner of the 1994 Iditarod, visited
the team to pay homage to them. Martin
began his racing career in Switzerland with
a team of Samoyeds.
        The Malamutes were the media dar-
lings of the race. The Anchorage Times
featured a front-page story on the team on
Sunday, March 13. At every checkpoint,
photographers and TV cameramen swarmed
around the team. Schools were dismissed
so that teachers could take their classes to
see and pet the Mals. More importantly,
the natives had a piece of their heritage
returned to them. One elderly native took
his grandchildren to see the Mals. “Here,”
the old many told them, “I want you to see
these dogs. These were the kind of dogs
we used to have.”
        The Malamutes were also favorites
of the veterinarians. At checkpoints, they
would obligingly roll over on their back and
wave their paws in the air for the foot
check. A team of 3 vets from Ohio State
University took ECGS of 200 race dogs, in-
cluding the Mals, as part of a research pro-
ject. The Mals were most cooperative and
it only took the vets 5 minutes per Mal to
do the ECG compared with 7-10 minutes per
dog for the other teams. Jacob was so co-
operative that they were able to get lots of
readings of his QRS spike over 3 mv, a sign
