Dogs are smarter than you give them credit for. History is replete with their intelligence, candour, and bravery.
As winter heaves its last sighs, let’s remember true born of the snow – Balto.
In 1925 when a case of diphtheria broke out among the children of Nome, Alaska, and the roads were down due to snow, Togo led a Sled dog team on the 674 mile trip to Anchorage, to deliver the medicine.
Balto, the dog who ran the final leg of the trip, was celebrated as a hero throughout the country and a statue of him was placed in Central Park in his honour.
They are good dogs, Brent!
