I shot the Iditarod this morning for the Associated Press. This photo was named one of their top photos for the day. So there’s that to be grateful for. Rookie musher Matt Failor of Willow, Alaska gets friendly with Pantera, a female dog in his team prior to the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race Saturday, March 3, 2018 in Anchorage, Alaska.
