Walk With Me Wednesday

Let's go visit a sled dog camp!

On one of our excursions, our lunch stop was next to a sled dog camp. We were encouraged to walk over and see the dogs. The dogs lived in a large fenced in area. Each of them had his own doghouse and each was tethered on a long chain that gave them a fair amount of movement. Most of the dogs were hanging out on top of their doghouses.

The camp offered short rides on a wheeled wagon pulled by dog teams. We didn't have time to wait for a wagon ride, but we did get a kick out of watching the dogs haul the wagons.

We did visit the puppy pen. Several puppies were in the pen, and we were able to play with them as part of their training -- getting used to people and being handled. If we put a dollar in a coffee can, we could get a handful of doggy cookies to feed them.

When we stayed at Chena Hotsprings there was a sled dog camp within walking distance. I felt sad to see the dogs chained like that. It didn't seem very nice for them. One of my all time favorite books is by Jack london - Call of the Wild about a sled dog.

Ohhhhh, you cruel woman. Showing a puppy post with those incredible sled dogs. Guess it wouldn't really want a home with napping on the agenda.
