One of Tim Osmar's dogs snuggles in his blanket and takes a nap during a rest from the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in the Yukon River village of Kaltag, Sunday. Osmar, who is from Ninilchik, had checked out of Shaktoolik and was in 18th place Monday night. Leader Martin Buser of Big Lake was expected to finish the race in record time in Nome this morning, although Ramy Brooks of Healy was closing the gap. For more Iditarod news, see Sports, page B-1.
