Farewell, Buddy Tabor

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Juneau singer and songwriter Buddy Tabor yesterday. Whenever I think of his lyrics and music, the song ‘Get Up Dogs’ comes to my mind, because it captures the single-minded drive I associate with dogs and dog mushing. I also conjures memories of my times spent up north along the Iditarod and Yukon Quest race trails. I can’t think of another song that captured the spirit of dog mushing like ‘Get Up Dogs’.
“Get up dogs, you aint tired, with the spirit of this race, we can set this trail on fire, you were born unto the race, your dogs are just the same, you were made for the winners circle, it runs inside your veins…”
