Byron was the best leader I ever had.
He was born from an accidental breeding between a siberian husky and a female from Joe Redington Sr. He ran the Iditarod 5 times, won the Alpirod 3 times and the Kobuk 440 one time.
He was a very versatile dog. After a season of long distance racing, he could lead a team to place in the top 3 in spring races early in the following season.
Here was also a nice pet, sleeping by my bed every night, and my best friend for 17 years.
