sled dogs

“Give me dogs, give me snow, you can keep the rest”.

Polar explorer Knud Rasmussen in his diary “The Literary Expedition”.

They are neither wild animals nor are they pets. Rather, they are partners, hunting companions of the Inuit and often lifesavers. In the past, they have made life and many expeditions to polar regions possible. They are masters of survival in the polar wilderness and as such they have well earned their place in my wildlife gallery.
