The Impulsive Traveler: A dog-sledding ad­ven­ture in Maine – The Washington Post
The couple is hugely devoted to their dogs, which are descended from the last team used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to patrol remote parts of the Yukon. The long-legged, broad-chested canines are nothing like the small, fast-moving dogs used in races such as the Iditarod, where 10 or more might pull a single sled. At Mahoosuc, Kevin and Pauline breed dogs solely for their own purposes, and a dog that is born on the property stays there until it dies.
