Hot Slut Of The Day!

Indy, the blind sled dog!

The next time I’m dragged to some godforsaken ski resort (it happens to me sometimes, sadly), and I toy with the idea of taking on the bunny slope, I may think of Indy’s perseverance and rent some training skis instead of saying, “Screw that!”, before going off to the food court (the ski resorts I’ve been to don’t have a “lodge“) to drink a hot toddy from a Red Solo Cup while laughing at everyone falling down. Okay, no, I won’t, but I will raise a hot toddy to Indy!

MPRNews brings us the tale of 7-year-old Indy of Minnesota, who was a superstar sledding dog in his younger days. But three years ago, his superstar sledding dog career was in danger of ending after he lost sight in one eye. Indy’s human, Frank Moe, didn’t force him into retirement, and instead continued to train him along with Frank’s other sledding dog Popcorn. Things were going okay until Indy’s sledding career nearly ended completely after he lost his vision in his other eye. Being completely blind couldn’t taken Indy out of the sledding game forever, but it did take him out for about a year. Then the need to continue to show those hos how it’s done grabbed onto him again. So Frank started slowly training Indy again and he eventually became as strong as the others.

After Indy’s year off, Moe, a former state legislator who lives in Hovland, ran him in some recreational races to get him back on the trail. Then, last season, Indy took on some longer races and became as strong as the rest of the dogs.

Indy’s known as a wheel in dogsled parlance — which means he runs behind the rest of the dogs, right in front of the musher. Wheels must be among the strongest dogs on the team.

And this past weekend, Indy killed a 100-mile run (two 50-mile legs with a few hours to rest in between). Indy will make his grand return to Frank’s team later this month when he competes in a 300-mile race. Frank thinks he’ll kill that one too:

“As long as he gets some love and attention and some treats at the end. That’s all he cares about.”

So Indy is full-on blind and is out there running and making sure that fucking Snow Dogs isn’t the first thing people think about when they think about sled dogs. If Indy can do that, any of us can do any- I need to stop myself. That’s not true. I can’t do anything. Like I can’t say no to this Snickers mini I’m about to eat after saying, “This is the last one, I swear,” six times already.
