In honor of Alaska’s famous annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, we bring you 5 remarkable facts about sled dogs. While we recognize that the Iditarod is a difficult, challenging and sometime dangerous endeavor for the dogs, it draws upon a long and storied tradition of dog and human partnerships. From historic race teams to legendary dogs who saved an entire city, these stories showcase the inspiring and indefatigable spirit of these amazing dogs.
Continuing the tradition we started with Ludivine the Marathon Bloodhound, this month’s Dog Tails Dog of the Month goes to the lovable rescue dogs of the Boon Lott’s Elephant Sanctuary Cat and Dog Home in Sukhothai, North Thailand. We first heard about these wonderful dogs and their amazing home thanks to DogWatch Thailand Dealers Doug de Weese and Patsorn “Bee” Sophan, and we were so inspired by their story that we wanted to share it with all of you!
We’re starting a new tradition in the new year – the Dog Tails Dog of the Month! In this feature, we’ll share fun, adventurous, inspiring stories of dogs who have made headlines and captured our hearts.
Our first Dog Tails Dog of the Month is Ludivine, a Bloodhound from Alabama who became a sensation earlier this month when she accidentally joined a half-marathon race in her hometown. How did Ludivine go from a “lazy girl” to a world-famous dog athlete? Read on to find out!
