Welcome to our new Saturday post - Pack talk with the Sibes.
As always we will be joining Ruckus the Eskie for his Sepia Saturday hop.
You can link up to share your sepia photos as well! Just use the linky codes below this post.
We are changing up the name of our Saturday Sibe Vibe.
We discovered that our good furiends Five Sibes Mom also has a Sibe Vibe on her blog as well.
And here I thought I was so clever coming up with The Sibe Vibe! haha!
So, I have decided to change it up a little.
You also may have noticed the new look of my blog?
Please feel free to let me know what you think of the new look!
Husky Fun Fact of the week :
Siberian huskies were once used to herd reindeer.
Yep, you heard that right!
Way back when, the Chukchi tribes used to rely on reindeer for food.
If your not sure who the Chukchi people are, check out my post on the history of the Siberian Husky.
When the climate started to change, the reindeer moved along to find a warmer climate.
The Chukchi people were dependent on reindeer for food, so they had no choice but to follow.
There is a cool part of history that leads into that part of the story, but I will leave that for our next Pack talk post.
The Chukchi eventually learned to domesticate the reindeer, therefore, rather then hunting the deer, the huskies job turned to herding.
And they were good at it!
The reason the Chukchi tribe decided to domesticate the reindeer, was their strength.
Reindeer can pull a much larger load then the huskies could, and the purpose of the Siberian Husky back then was to pull lighter loads for long distances, using their speed. With the larger loads, there was no speed.
So the huskies and the reindeer worked together.
Here is a gorgeous version of the Chukchi people with their huskies in sepia.
The Siberian Husky had many jobs. They were a working breed, and loved every minute of it.
They were bred for hunting, pulling sleds, herding, and a guardian for their children.

That wraps up our husky fun fact of the week.
Hope you enjoyed learning some more Siberian Husky history and our sepia edits as well :)
