    It's an awesome breed! I live in Florida and went to Minnesota on a dogsledding camping trip at Wintergreen Dogsledding; they use Canadian Eskimo dogs. I was amazed that they were so friendly to all of us even though we were strangers. Our guide said that it is a very old breed and in early times an eskimo village would share the dogs, so they had to be friendly with everyone; they culled any that showed aggression to people.

    My favorite part of the trip was when we were lying in our sleeping bags on a frozen Canadian Boundary Waters lake and all of the dogs would start singing at around 2 am. Amazingly, they would start up separately, sing together for awhile, and then they would all stop at exactly the same time. *sigh* I can't wait to go back!
