Who let the dogs out? Malamute meetup

Alpe Giumello

Sunday morning at Alpe Giumello. If I had known ahead of time how busy this place would be, I might not have bothered to get out of bed. But thanks to perfect weather, Disney films featuring sled dogs, and fans of man’s best friend, a chance to see Alaskan Malamutes was too good to resist for a lot of people yesterday. We were among many who turned up for Malamute Day 2013 and while it isn’t anything like the Iditarod, a day out on the snow never fails to put some pep in winter spirits.

Dog-sledding

An area was set aside for sled dog trials which looked like a lot fun, but as expected, the dachshund wasn’t too keen on all the fuss. Maybe one day when Italy will have wiener dog racing…

      It was fun watching one of the dogs howl like a wolf and “talk”. I wish we could get the Mister to talk like that….he only grunts or growls.
