Poor Jessie chased a cat around some rocks and got stuck between boulders! Her human got rescue workers on the case and they rescued her from the tight spot after almost a week. Lucky Jessie, there was room to get food to her so she's okay.

Day eight of the 2012 Iditarod is underway, with Aily Zirkle maintaining her 40 minute lead over Dallas Seavey and hang on to first place after reaching Unalakleet around 7:30a.m. AST this morning.

Only three mushers have made it to Unalakleet so far today, with the majority of the teams in Kaltag or en route. Another musher, Zoya Denure, has scratched and withdrawn her team from the race, but did not provide any explanation to judges or team officials. This is her third consecutive year to withdraw from the race, after finishing 53rd in her rookie season back in 2008.

62 teams remain, and over 200 miles of ground separates the leaders from their final destination in Nome. Stay tuned for more Iditarod updates from your pals here at I Has a Hot Dog!
