Ol’ Blue Eyes in Norway

It was when I read Jo-Jo's blog, Snow Capped Memories of Lapland, and she described how "...the dogs were much smaller and less fluffy than the pet husky’s I know. Strong and lean and frisky – like highly attuned race horses just itching to take off..." that I had a vivid recollection of my day with the huskies. I, too, was surprised that the huskies were lean and much smaller than I had imagined and I was told that these are the real working dogs of northern Scandinavia, not the heavily fur-coated ones we see on TV and films.
