An Iditarod dog missing seven days is back under the watchful eye of friends delighted to be reunited with her. Mae, an experienced lead dog from the kennel of veteran Iditarod musher Jim Lanier, ran off March 6 when Jamaican musher Newton Marshall worked to untangle a line between the checkpoints of Rohn and Nikolai in an area of the Iditarod Trail known as the Farewell Burn.
Those who know Mae suspect she was making a run for the race start in Willow or her home kennel in Chugiak.
The saga of her disappearance, sightings and eventual capture can be assembled through a series of posts on the Facebook pages for the Iditarod Trail Committee, Marshall and Northern White Kennels.
