*touching childhood story forthcoming* *alert*
when I was a kid, growing up on a farm in southwest Ohio, for a brief period we were boarding two Malamutes. Big, happy, friendly dogs, and so furry we kept them in a vacant stall in the barn instead of in the house so they could stay cool. My sis and I decided 'hey, they're sled dogs' so we hooked them up to the standard snow sled of the day, yelled "MUSH!" and they promptly turned around and came back to lick our faces and wag their tails. Sis then said I should go run in front of them to get them to follow me (and pull her) and then we'd change spots. I ran until my side hurt and I was out of breath. Then my sister got off the sled and went inside, so I never got my ride.
