Most sled dogs are relatively quiet when they run down the trail. They might pant or bark at an occasional animal. We have one rather distinct exception: Ranger.
Ranger has spoken his mind ever since he was a tiny puppy. He used to run in the puppy wheel (a slightly larger version of a hamster wheel) barking constantly. We thought it was funny then, so we would urge him on. Then as a yearling, he barked occasionally while in harness. We thought, he was probably still learning to be a real sled dog. As an adult, Ranger now barks constantly. It’s actually amazing to think that he can still breath and yap the entire time he is pulling and running.
The bottom line is some dogs, and people, were meant to speak their mind.
Tell them how you feel buddy!
Scooter is the black dog who chimes in with Ranger on the second pass. And funny enough, guess who is Scooter’s Daddy? Yup!
