Favorite Video Friday – Dachshund Sled Dog Team

December 13, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

After this past weekend’s snow storm, I knew it was time to bring out the big guns. Yup. The sled dog team that beats all other sled dog teams.

Meet The Dachshunds from Long Island.

These three little dogs can pull a sled down a snowy city street (with a child in it!) and still have a smile on their faces at the end of it. I must admit, I was quite impressed with their prowess.

I also thought they were extremely adorable.

This week’s video might be a bit long, but I think you will get the pure joy of the day after just a few minutes.

Happy Friday everyone!

    This is genius, I need to get Eko a friend and I need a sled! Oh, and some snow wouldn’t hurt either.

      Get a friend, a harness and I’ll send the snow! 🙂

      I know! I found it quite a while ago, but was waiting to share it when we had a good snowfall. I just love seeing them run.

    Woof! Woof! LOVE it! Those Doxies just fearless. WOW what a snow storm you had, I do miss snow and mom promised me that I will get to see it again. Happy Friday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

      We had a crazy snowstorm, but it appears we are losing the snow pretty quickly. We’ve been in the mid- to upper-30’s since Tuesday so a lot has already melted.

    Fabulous! Looks like the doxies are thrilled to be treated like the big dogs they are. 🙂

    Poodles ran in the Iditarod for a few years until the Huskies got jealous.

    Too cute!

    Cute… BUT… it would be much more humane to get them some (little) mushing harnesses from a pulling-sport outfitter. This way there would not be undue pressure on their necks–perhaps causing many problems down the road. Mushing harnesses put all the stress in the right places–against their chest. THEN they could do even more–and safer for them. See sellers on http://www.sleddogcentral.com... there are many (NOT petstores–harness there are not made to measure and/or for pulling sports.)
