Mushing: A Winter Sport for People and Pups
It's a snowy Saturday in Laurel Mountain State Park in Westmoreland County. Matt Philips and Sarah White are unloading precious cargo—their dogs—from the backseat of a black hatchback.
They’ve driven 50 miles from Pittsburgh to get in a couple of hours of practice. This is only their second winter mushing with their dogs.
Philips fell into mushing by accident.
