Husky

The name husky is thought to be a corruption of Eskie - a slang term for Eskimo.


The husky's extra-thick coat lets them survive in Arctic temperatures as low as minus 60c.

In cold weather, Siberian husky noses can change color from black to light brown or pink.

Huskies make terrible watch dogs because they rarely bark, instead they make a wolf-like howling sound.

In sled races they can manage speeds of 20 mph for 20 to 30 miles every day.

A sled dog race was included in the 1932 Winter Olympics; Canada won the gold medal.
