Canicross in the Arctic

A guest photographer and sled-dog enthusiast from Barentsburg, Svalbard;  Елена Викторовна,  took this photo of a canicross runner with a pure Chuckchi sled dog.  The Chuckchi sled dog is an ancient breed from Siberia, and possibly akin to the original working dog imported to Alaska in the early 1900s by the norwegian Leonard Seppala that later became the prototype for his Seppala huskies.

Two of my pure Seppala huskies back in the mid 1990s.  Tough, hardy, stayer and enduring sled dogs.
