Le shiba est une race de chien originaire du Japon. C'est un chien de petite taille de type spitz. Race très ancienne, le shiba a failli disparaître au début du XXᵉ siècle, en raison de la concurrence des chiens de chasse anglais.

Sled dog race

 

Alaskan Malamutes at Retordica, Plateau de Retord, Cuvéry, Ain, France

 

For more than 25 years, an international dog sled race has been taking place in the wilderness of Plateau de Retord. Many mushers love this site to train their teams throughout the winter.

The sled dog racing is subdivided into several categories according to the number of dogs harnessed and in three subcategories according to the breed of dogs harnessed.

Indeed, the faster Siberian Husky compete in a separate category, the other three breeds : Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed and Greenland dog run in the same category, while the so-called "Nordic type" dogs participate in their own category.

This sport takes back ancestral traditions which allowed the Inuits to survive in the big Arctic deserts and represent the link with the nature.

 

Fast, exciting, well trained sled dog teams are the result of careful behind the scenes planning and hard work. Successful mushers are knowledgeable in such diverse areas as kennel management, canine behavior, nutrition, veterinary care, psychology, physical conditioning, housing and transportation. Wise mushers soon learn that success or failure in any of these areas affects performance dramatically. Considering this fact it is obvious that the welfare of the dogs is of paramount importance.

Team and driver develop a close, trusting relationship because of the amount of time they spend together. To betray that trust by not meeting all of the dog’s needs runs counter to the goal of having a happy, healthy, highly motivated team.

 

What you see at a race is the result of long hours of work and planning to ensure that the team is prepared to test its abilities against the trail and the competition.

Timmy, 'a dog' poses as only hyperactive animals and children will (and from his perspective). Brightened up my day.

Some dogs have more opinions than others

Strobist: Elinchrom BRX 500 with 30x160cm gridded strip - horizontal from front - camera right and another similar from 45 degrees behind also camera right.

Dog meditation . . .

Anxious friends from Svalbard. It's absolutely insane how these dogs can work. Wind and minus 15 degrees did not seem to bother them at all.

Our dog ,Jack Russell Terrier, Rut begging for some candy.

Thai dog at the Wapi Resort, Koh Lipe, Thailand. This dog slept outside our bungalow for the 3 nights we stayed. Maybe watching out for us or maybe just waiting for food... who knows

Dog yoga... it's all the new craze. ;-P

If you're wondering if he's comfortable.... he is. Tank does this often.

She asks me why

I'm just a hairy guy

I'm hairy noon and night

Hair that's a fright /.../

 

The dog on the photo is called Sara and we've adopted her for a week because she has chosen our Macedonian garden as her home.

Cute dog panting in the hot sun with one ear perked up ... all senses are working... relaxed but on guard . . .

No, not really. This is my little shadow Teddy's "come get me look." He isn't a big fan of snow. He's got me pretty well trained. Wouldn't have it any other way. He didn't have to wait long.

 

Teddy is a wonderful camping companion, including last summer's long trip to Alaska. We had a blast. Teddy is a delight and blessing we cherish everyday.
