TV series: Across Canada with Lars Monsen

edited January 2015 in General

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.
