Alaskan Malamutes (my first prize "best smile"!!!) at Retordica, Plateau de Retord, Cuvéry, Ain, France

 

For more than 25 years, an international dog sled race has been taking place in the wilderness of Plateau de Retord. Many mushers love this site to train their teams throughout the winter.

The sled dog racing is subdivided into several categories according to the number of dogs harnessed and in three subcategories according to the breed of dogs harnessed.

Indeed, the faster Siberian Husky compete in a separate category, the other three breeds : Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed and Greenland dog run in the same category, while the so-called "Nordic type" dogs participate in their own category.

A race organized by the FFST, the federation that brings together mushers with all kinds of dogs, purebred, Nordic type, hunting dogs or cross dogs such as Alaskans.

The main one is their ability to run fast.

Thanks very much for your interest, fav or time to comment !!

Sometimes I have to deal with photobombers :)

While walking in town this lady let me take a picture of her dog. She gave me her contact information. I sent her the picture of the dog, which took forever to post process and she didn't even say thank you! Perhaps she didn't like his new look ;D

 

For Texture Tuesday with Jai Johnson texture. Some sort of terrier I suspect.

 

Thank you for visiting!

The title is Ross's nickname, short for 'Doug Ross' of the TV hospital series 'ER'. A character played by George Clooney:-)

Are you as tired as this dog?

Dog, Tiggy striking a pose at sunset! We had just finished a lovely walk on Barlaston Downs and were watching the setting sun when this beautiful young lady came and sat by me. The colour of her coat was heightened by the sunset and she looked wonderful.

 

Of course, I asked her kind owners if I could take a photo and Tiggy just turned to look at me and 'smiled' as I raised my camera...perfect model!! Bless her, she was gorgeous and so friendly, just full of the joys of Spring. :)

This sport takes back ancestral traditions which allowed the Inuits to survive in the big Arctic deserts and represent the link with the nature.

 

Fast, exciting, well trained sled dog teams are the result of careful behind the scenes planning and hard work. Successful mushers are knowledgeable in such diverse areas as kennel management, canine behavior, nutrition, veterinary care, psychology, physical conditioning, housing and transportation. Wise mushers soon learn that success or failure in any of these areas affects performance dramatically. Considering this fact it is obvious that the welfare of the dogs is of paramount importance.

Team and driver develop a close, trusting relationship because of the amount of time they spend together. To betray that trust by not meeting all of the dog’s needs runs counter to the goal of having a happy, healthy, highly motivated team.

 

What you see at a race is the result of long hours of work and planning to ensure that the team is prepared to test its abilities against the trail and the competition.

You can say any stupid thing to a dog,

and he will give you back a look that says:

"My God, you're right! I would never have arrived there. "

 

Puoi dire qualsiasi stupidaggine a un cane, e lui ti restituirà uno sguardo che dice: “Mio Dio, hai ragione! Io non ci sarei mai arrivato”.

(Dave Barry)

2018 is The Year of the Dog .

I took this photo on the New Year's day.

 

Those two dogs are strangers. I can tell as the owners even didn't greet each other.

 

I thought it was such a lovely scene. They didn't stay long as the owners didn't want to stay long.
