I know from the feedback we've had that some of you love Huskies, so I thought you'd appreciate these photos on the Boston Globe website. They show not only the beauty of the dogs, but also the power of them in action, and the closeness of the bond between them and their handlers. They show dogs participating in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, in which teams cover 1,868 km (1,161 mi), taking 8 to 12 days to do so. That's amazing isn't it?
I don't know if it's the working history, or the striking wolf-like appearance that makes them so popular, but Huskies do attract a lot of fans. In Episode 17 of DogCast Radio you can hear our interview with the Cairngorm Sleddog Centre, in Aviemore, Scotland. Not all the dogs we met at the centre were Huskies, some were Pointers, and there were also Husky-Pointer crosses. (Puskies? Hointers?)Never thought of Pointers as a sled dog? - then listen and find out how the breed became involved with sledding.
Don't forget to check out our Husky Breed Profile page, where you'll also find some delightful Husky photos. If you have a Husky in your life, don't forget to upload a photo of him or her.
