Wolf Howl

Have you ever wondered what a wolf howl sounds like?  Here is a video where 2 ladies demonstrate how an arctic (white) wolf howls.  Warning: this video is loud, so you might want to turn down your speakers.

Cute Puppy Playing With Ball

Here is a cute video of a golden retriever puppy playing with what looks like a green tennis ball.  Seems typical of golden retrievers.







Commentary:

This dog reminds me of my golden retriever (Tucker).  He chases after lacrosse balls, tennis balls, and even footballs too.


My connections with this video.  Here is a video I have of my dog (Tucker) chasing after a football.

Snow // Malamute // Winter Fun

This malamute looks like he really enjoys being out in the snow.  Huskies and malamutes are called snow dogs for a reason you know.  By the way, were are getting snow here in Whistler British Columbia, unlike Snohomish, Washington (we will probably not get our first snow there till sometime in December in January if I had to guess).

A Memorial for the100 Slaughtered Sled Dogs in Whistler BC, WTF Moments

Here is a wtf moment in the animal world.  If you had perfectly healthy dogs and didn't want to keep them anymore, would you shoot them (or otherwise euthanise them)?  I know I would try to give the dogs away.  However, apparently a Sled Dog company in Canada did just that.  In this video is a memorial for the dogs that were euthanised.  Warning:  this video is sad and if you are sensitive to things like that, don't feel like you have to watch them.



Also, you can read more about the incident at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whistler_sled_dog_cull



That video was sad wasn't it?  Long before Teddy, Angel and now Tucker, I remember my family had a dog once that we weren't able to raise(a springer spaniel named, Crocket) and he proved to be too much for my family, and so we ended up giving him away to another family.  But to kill dogs you don't need anymore, that is just messed up pal.  Thought I would share it.  By the way, what are your thoughts on the story?  Would you give your dogs away if you don't need them anymore.  I am sure even in Canada, there are people that probably would have loved to take the dogs off their hands if they didn't want them anymore.

Vacation Dog Sledding - Whistler, BC Canada March 2008

Considering that I am vacationing in Whistler British Columbia this week, here is a video on dogsledding there.  Not sure if I will go dog sledding (I have heard that it is expensive there), but I wouldn't mind checking it out someday if I had the extra money.
