    that breed looks a lot stockier back then. nowadays, they look very lean; kinda like long-distance runners.

  20. briggsith

    That is amazing. I love those dogs, but they look really quite terrifying in that picture. Reminds me of the wolf in the movie 300. Super cool.

    Dear aspecticide

    I checked the Macquarie Dictionary and they seem to be almost interchangeable. Sled tends to be smaller. Sled derives from Middle English and sledge from Middle Dutch

  114. aspecticide

    wouldn’t it be sled, not sledge?

    wow AWESOME

  144. TheUnrequitedTV

    …i believe all the polar expeditions of this era used dogs from Greenland, which were notoriously capable and tough. and they weren’t picky eaters either; any of the bitches that were having pups had to be kept separate, as the pups would be devoured…

    There’s a really really nice atmosphere, I would like to enjoy if it weren’t so cold.
    But that’s definately no picture. It’ a painting or a very old heavily restorated picture.

  201. Jean Knowles

    This dates from a time when huskies were bred for their strength as working dogs, with little regard for their looks. And yes, the fan hitch is particularly useful when crossing ice floes.

  202. The_cheeseman

    This is an amazing photo! They look like prehistoric beasts, not like dogs.

  206. tvsmash

    This fan-hitch is used to cross rough, uneven, barren country. It allows the dogs to move around ice chunks and across crevasses individually. It is primarily used only in the arctic circle region and while on coastal ice flows.

  207. Kerri-Jo

    wow what a shot!
