From Kyle Hopkins in Anvik --
Fairbanks musher Judy Currier hasn't told Iditarod officials yet, but she plans to scratch here in Anvik. She got in late last night with one leader, Pebbles, suffering kennel cough and another with a shore shoulder.
She dropped yet another leader, Athena, back in McGrath.
Currier has enough dogs to continue, she said, but not enough to guide the team to Nome.
"(Pebbles) started coughing in McGrath. We put her on drugs right away, but it's getting down into her lungs," Currier said.
