Dogs. With love from a felinophile.

The sound of Greenland is for me the barking, screeching, howling of sledge dogs. Bored sledge dogs waiting for their luck to go sledding or be fed alternately. The only times they were quiet was when they were working or when they slept (which they did a lot…). These dogs are working dogs, not cuddly dogs. You wouldn’t really like to end up in the middle of such a pack, and still they are quite cute seen from a distance and the puppies – oh my! And this from a convinced cat lover. Here are some photos…

This is what they are made for. Strong and persistent.

They are curious yet a bit shy and scurries back to mum as soon as she lifts an eyebrow.

Our driver let us hold this tiny, tiny fellow. His brother was dead so he was all alone with his mother. A week old this one and looking quite the little gopher.

This is how you do no make puppies. The black lady is in heat and all those guys would so like to meet her. And the driver so does not want them to meet her for other reasons than purely professional. So when not working separation was necessary...

The dogs are trained from a young age.
