After last winter’s seemingly endless series of blizzards, many are breathing a sigh of relief over the scarce snow cover this year. But the lack of snow is a problem for a sport you might not realize even exists in Massachusetts: dog sledding.
Meg Mizzoni is used to the sound of barking. She’s got about 20 dogs at home. That’s not actually all that many, she says, when you’re really into the sport she loves. Mizzoni’s the president of the New England Sled Dog Club. And as she looks out on open field of dead grass, she says this hasn’t been a great winter.
“It’s tough," she said. "I mean we live for the snow. You know. And these guys live for the snow," she said, pointing to the dogs.
