    Cito Competed in Sanctioned IWPA events for one year.  During that time he earned
    a WDX title on snow.  To do this he had to pull a sled weighing 10 times his weight at 4
    different events.  His efforts also brought home the gold medal in the 80lb. class for region
    3 on Snow and silver medal on wheels. His greatest accomplishment was being invited to
    international championships held in Greeley Colorado.  The whole family (mom & dad)
    came out to watch.  He pulled a personal best of 1255 lbs in the wheeled competition earning
    him 8th place out of 8 dogs. The next day was the snow competition.  The conditions were
    terrible for snow, with temperatures in the 70's.  all the dogs had to work very hard and the
    final weights pulled were low.  Cito only managed to pull 250 lbs.; but that was good enough
    for third place.  Wow; I couldn't be more proud of my boy.
