Not related to Laikas, but good reminder how hard people were on dogs and how the harsh environment shapes selection.
Should be subtitled.
Two dogs got lost chasing caribou-- he suspect they drowned or got eaten by wolves.
One died during the night for unknown reasons.
One got gangrene from frostbite.
One he had to shoot because it broke a leg so severely, that it would have miserable future even if the fracture healed.
Taiga and tundra are harsh; and we forget where our dogs come from.
