Pack Dog



I found this picture from early 1900's Alaska interesting. The dog is being used to haul camp equipment on its back. I see there is no snow, so perhaps it was not sledding season, yet the dogs were still expected to work.

  2. I love this picture, and what a well trained dog! I'm sure the doggy had to stand still for a little bit to get his picture taken, taking into account the slower shutter speeds in the early 1900's. I'm totally enjoying work dog week.

  4. That's one tough dog. Besides the coffee pot, I see an axe handle & a skillet - has to be cast iron.

  5. That dog looks like a Newfoundland. They're big dogs that can handle the load and are good swimmers.

  9. Great pictures. Are we allowed to use any of these, if we give credit to you?

  10. Lesson learned. Never try to swim in a lake when there is a Newfoundland or a Great Dane around. They simply won't allow it. You will be herded back to shore in short order.

    Great dogs!
