Traveling with the dogs in winter was great: no bears, no bugs, no snakes, no people, and the entire world was our refrigerator! The hundreds of miles I journeyed in those years with my three furry companions made me see them differently. Their determination, trust, and unbelievable strength and spirit became clear, and I started to deeply understand their needs. Together we learned how to work with each other, and in the process, we became a close-knit team. Koji lived until age 14 and pulled like a maniac until he was 12. That 100-pound hunk of muscle, fur, and heart taught me more about myself than I ever imagined a dog could." - Chuck Weiss (Read more about Chuck's adventures and about other amazing northern-breed dogs inside!)
