lol. Seems like a happy dog.
lol yeah he's enjoying the life of a house pet . Little does he know he's meant to do one of the toughest jobs a sled dog can dog. Be a wheel dog.
Oh, what a cute ball of fluffy fur! What sweet pictures! Thank you for sharing.
Wow he's grown so much since that first picture you showed us. He's so cute!
OMG hes HUGE WHAT HAPPEN TO THAT LITTLE BABY WOOOW IM SHOCKED HOW FAST HE GREW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HES STILL REALLY CUTE
I want one!!!
he's not really that big he just looks it in that pic but he's in a ball. But yeah he did grow fast He's 6 months old now and gorwing im assuming normal malamute rate lol. Maybe i got a mutant. Those two other pics were him at 10 weeks!!! His back comes maybe alittle higher then my knee and then his head. Liek I've said before he's starting to out weigh some of the smaller dogs lol.
His bone structure sure looks like he could handle the job..he looks like he will be a power house!
yea he does smkie hes so pretty pits. he is so cute
He is such a beauty, Pits!! I love the sleeping pic..tooo cute. He does look like he has some muscle......how big will he get?
The biggest will probley be 125 lbs
Do you ever look at him, Pits, and ask him what he did with that little, itty-bitty, fluffy puppy?
He's going to be a Real Dog when he grows up.
By the way, what exactly does a wheel dog do?
Lol I do often I can't beleive how big he has grown.
Wheel dogs are the two dogs you see closest to the sled pulling.
i was wondering what a wheel dogs was too. i want to do that one day but i dont live in a place that sledding is feasible
That would be a tough job. I'd think the physics of the whole set up is such that the two closest dogs exert the most effort, particularly in starts.
thats true renee and thats why you put the most physically able dogs to be wheel dogs. But you also want lenght in the traces so for the most part the weight is evenly distributed through out the team.
