DIY polar sledge is taking shape..... (Aiming for light, strong, flexible, trimmable, buoyant and width-adjustable)

Extraordinary pic of 1920s Ontarian trying to use wolves & coyotes as sled 'dogs'. Must have had a lot of patience!

Echo, the only wolf we had a slight 'moment' with.
Pup having a go at a howl too - although it tended to come out a bit squeaky....

Wolves doing their best alligator impression.
