    The story that is not often told and little credit ever given is about Leonhard Seppala’s Togo. “Katy Steinmetz in Time Magazine wrote that “the dog that often gets credit for eventually saving the town is Balto, but he just happened to run the last, 55-mile leg in the race. The sled dog who did the lion's share of the work was Togo. His journey, fraught with white-out storms, was the longest by 200 miles and included a traverse across perilous Norton Sound — where he saved his team and driver in a courageous swim through ice floes.”[9]” I named on my dogs after this Togo. There is a movie coming out that Disney is producing about him on the new streaming channel due out sometime in 2020. It’s starring William DaFoe. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Togo_(dog) ctdo

    They need to make a realistic film about the none serum relay , the cartoon film "Balto" was entertaining but but very little of it was true

    I was just thinking I wonder if that's what Balto was based on and then it came up that one of the dogs was called Balto. How amazing. I hadnt realised.❤😳
