It wasn't all bad

EMT musher uses doggie CPR to save sled race competitor's choking pup

Quebec musher Anny Malo was 25 miles into the 150-mile CopperDog sled race when disaster struck. One of her dogs, Max, had collapsed after a piece of ice became lodged in its throat. Malo was trying to help the dog when fellow musher Frank Moe passed by. A trained EMT, Moe suspended his own race and performed doggie CPR, blowing air into Max's snout and reviving the animal. Moe finished 11th in the race — but his generosity earned him a sportsmanship award, Keweenaw Report says. As for Max, Malo says he's doing well. He spent the rest of the race tucked safely in Malo's bag.
