    Does anyone know the Inuit or Native Alaskan name for "Big Dog/s"?


    I know this is probably a little off topic, BUT my hubby swears he heard the word before and he really liked it. We are starting up our kennel and trying to remember this name to incorporate into the name of our kennel and farm. We raise Giant Alaskan Malamutes so that was the main reason for wanting the name.
    He thinks he heard it in the either the "snow dogs" movie or "8 below". Any help would be much appreciated...Thank you, Stephanie

    So according to that site, the answer to your question would be: kringmerk takiyok .....that's a mouthful to yell out the back door when you sit out the food bowl, lol!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And here I thought it was either the words for "foot warmer" or "dinner."
