Today on TikTok I saw a woman posting her delirious happiness that she'd persuaded her Bernese Mountain Dog to tow a little plastic toddler wagon with her three kids in it on their walks. She was like "I'm a freakin' genius" and her happiness was genuinely contagious, but it honestly felt as if she didn't know she's not actually the person who invented #dog mushing or dog carts. #SledDog #DogMushing
I know an elder who remembers this. Her father was out on the land when the RCMP came to her settlement and killed all the dogs. Her father stayed away from the settlement with his dog team. He was the only one able to hunt and provide food for the community. He lived alone in the tundra with his dogs, hiding from RCMP for a long time. https://www.vice.com/en/article/zn8wy8/the-rcmp-and-quebecs-provincial-police-nearly-killed-off-the-inuit-sled-dog #RCMP #Inuit #Genocide #Indigenous #CanadianGenocide #famine #SledDog #DogSled #Qamutik #PoliceViolence #PoliceBrutality

Åsta, our black and white puppy, is an ass-biter. Can't explain it away, I have photographic proof. Teddy, her favorite subject, is thankfully moving to his forever home soon ;P
The puppies met cats today, and it was so very polite and calm =) Mochi is perfect for things like this, he loves attention but is not too pushy unless "provoked" (asked to play).

Lunta tulvillaan, on raikas talvisää, eikä valjakkommekaan, nyt enää pihaan jää.
Olipa taas #höntsävetohommat NIIN KIVAA!
Ja ei, en tiijä, miksi kuva on vinksallaan, ja kun huomioidaan miten vinksallaan maailma on, on se pientä.
Took Rufus outside to say hi to the puppies! He thought they made too much noise, and had to hiss a bit. He did get a good sniff of his little cow-friend Åsta, but I think he'd rather they came inside the house for future meetings. Mom Tikaani gave Rufus some good SLURPS in the face before he got to go inside, she didn't mind him visiting at all.
This little dude, I currently call him "Kaptein" (Captain), is going to be trouble. He already is! Howling, chewing on his siblings, first to open his eyes... his new owner better watch out ;P
The puppies are here 😊 There was just four of them, like the vet said, and they are all eating like champs 😊 Two girls and two boys, we are keeping one and the other three are already promised away to great homes. Tikaani is a good mom, and doesn't mind her babies being handled ❤
Look at that big #belly! How many #puppies are in there? No one agrees with the vet, absolutely everyone says they see more than four on the x-ray I posted earlier, possibly up to seven or even eight of them in there. I think there is five or six. The indoor-ish house for them to be born in is almost ready, just in time for her to pop very soon.
(Yes, I did help her, she didn't have to do it all alone all the way.)

Puppies! Four of them, probably. Could be more if they are good at hiding, but four quite clearly 😊 Tikaani is goofy, happy and HUNGRY. Much like she always is 😜 They will be born in under two weeks, so busy times ahead!
