If you own a few dogs and live in East Grand Forks, now might be a good time to practice yelling, "Mush!"

Tonight the city council approved a special request from the Red River Dog Sled Committee.

They are working with the city to hold a dog sled race in February.

Both parties are still working out the details and mapping, but the executive assistant for the city council said the northern valley in the winter is perfect for the event.

If you have the snow, and if you have the dogs, you are in for some good entertainment.

"I think it is going to draw a good crowd. It is something you do not see up here often. I think it will be interesting."

French said they had a dog sled event in East Grand Forks last year.
