Panda Marrs 

Sibling rivalry: At 10 months old, Willow-born and-raised Panda and her siblings —Grizzly, Koala, Polar and Teddy— are in the running to become the next lead Iditarod dog for team Stump Jumpin’ Kennel.

Ruff life: When she’s not training, a typical day includes long naps in the sun, enjoying frozen salmon snacks or rolling around in fresh snow with her best pup friend Forest Gump.

Squad goals: Panda dreams of leading Wade Marrs’ team to Nome on the Iditarod trail, just like her mom and dad are doing this year.
