Saturday Sibe-Vibe

The Sibe-Vibe---->Husky fun facts

Hello everybody, I hope you are all having a great weekend! 

   I have decided that Saturdays will be my one day a week where I will do some Husky fun facts.

Before I adopted my girls, I did a TON of research on the breed. Having been a huge fan of Sibes my whole life I knew a bit about them, and knew it would take a lot of research and work to own this unique breed. SO thats what I did! 
Therefor I learned a ton about them and would like to share some of that stuff with my readers. 

Please remember that I am relaying info that I have researched and read for myself, and my opinion is not that of a professional.

So my fun fact is perhaps the most important and interesting one I have ever learned about Huskies.  In 1925 there was a dog sled team run by a man named
Gunnar Kaasen, and him and his sled team had to run a serum over to Nome Alaska, over 600 miles from where they were. They became
Balto's statue
 famous for saving Nome
Also I know many of you have heard
 of the Iditarod trail sled dog race,
 which is to commemorate the famous 
serum delivery. And you may have also
 heard of or seen the 1995 movie 
called Balto. Which was quite
 literally based off the lead dog
 in Gunnars sled team, none other then....Balto. Balto even has his very own statue to honor him! 



And that wraps up my Husky fact this Saturday! Thanks for reading!
