Sledding dogs...also known as sledge dogs....sleighman dogs..sleddogs....are highly trained dogs that are used to pull a dog sled on runners over snow or ice using a harness and control lines. The Chukchi Tribe in the eastern Siberian peninsula was some of the first to use the Siberian husky as sled dogs. They were also used as watch dogs and to herd reindeer. The huskies were very strong and able to integrate into small packs and could work long hours and required small portions of food. William Goosak was a Russian fur trader operating in Nome Alaska in the 1900's. He brought a team of Siberian Husky Dogs from Russia and entered them in the Alaska Sweepstakes race (408 mile competition). The locals from Nome often referred to these Russian husky dogs as "Siberian Rats", because they were much smaller than the larger, heavier Alaskan Sled Dogs that were being used.The Siberian Huskies have won many races since that first victory in 1909. A young man from Scotland, Fox Ramsay, traveled to Siberia in the summer of 1909 and returned with about 60 Siberian Huskies. He entered three teams in the Alaska Sweepstakes race of 1910. One of these teams won the race and set a "best ever time" of 74 hours for this 408 mile race. The Siberian Huskies received enormous recognition as racing dogs over the years and became well known for their many great successes. The Ramsay huskies won many races, but everyone remembered the first husky team of William Goosak in 1909. In 1913 a Norwegian, Roald Amundson, who was the first man to reach the South Pole, began planning a trip to the North Pole. This expedition was scheduled for 1914. Jafet Lindberg, also a Norwegian, purchased and selected the very best Siberians for this important expedition. Leonhard Seppala was hired to train the dogs for this special mission. The start of World War I caused the cancellation of the expedition to the North Pole in 1914. Seppala continued to train the Huskies and entered them in the last four Alaskan Sweepstakes races 1915, 1916, and 1917. World War I ended this great dog sled racing series. Siberian Husky Dogs have established a place in History due to their racing abilities and special notoriety around the world. The original husky dogs that William Goosak brought to Nome, Alaska in 1908, varied in basic characteristics from the modern Siberian husky. Some were long and leggy, while others were smaller and heavier boned. Performance was the most important characteristic of the time as aesthetics were not so important.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.
I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
