When someone says sled dogs, the first thing that comes to your mind is probably the team of charming huskies pulling a sleigh as they plow across the snow. This group of canine is a rather integral means of transportation in Arctic areas, hauling supplies in different places that are difficult to reach by other methods.
But have you heard of a single dog who doesn’t pull the sled but rides on it? A dog who doesn’t use the sled for transportation but fun instead? If your answer is no, we’d love to introduce to you this Australian shepherd who couldn’t get enough of riding his sled down the snowy hills.
The secret, a four-year-old dog, together with his owner Mary, decided to go back home in Iowa and spend their holidays there. Being in love with snow, they spend most of their time outside the house to play. And everybody knows that your winter holiday is not complete without getting on that cold sled.
With their gears ready, Secret wasted no more time. Immediately jumped on his sled and rushed down the hill, enjoying the excitement and tingle of the chilly wind. He then continued the cycle of going down the peak and then up again. He loved the thrill of the activity so much that whenever he reached the bottom of the hill, he would drag the sled to the top, and once ready, off he goes down the hill again.
This pooch doesn’t seem to get tired of the routine. We would bet that he could do this for a whole day, maybe even for a week as long as there is snow.
What’s more interesting about Secret? This Aussie dog has been a sled-lover for years. Yes, most dogs would probably be in front of the fireplace during winter, cozy and tucked in, but not for this dog. He loves taking the opportunity to have fun sledding outside with his owner.
