Specialist dogs are part of the team who can take harsh conditions that the other dogs can not survive in, part of the sled dog team too. In the front are the leaders of the team while the dogs that are farthest behind the leaders called ballast. Next, I will show you why it is good to be having the Iditarod races. One reason is that with these races canines will be very healthy and athletic while most house dogs are big, out of shape, and unhealthy.

About twice a year, huskies will “blow their coat” which is when they shed more than ever. If your husky isn’t exercising on hard surfaces, like cement or gravel, their nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid splitting cracking, and overgrowth. Their ears should also be checked very regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can cause an infection, which is very uncomfortable for the dog and very expensive for
The cities provide us with parks and they rely on the people to respect and follow the rules in place. often the rules are heeded and there could be a lawsuit waiting to happen because if an encounter were to occur whether its dog vs dog or dog vs victim its rightful for the individual to sue not only the attackers owner but the city as well for not enforcing the law. although this could be factual its also possible that there wouldnt be any attacks and that the dogs could actually get along if provided the space to socialise,exersize and hang out. The issue of dogs noise levels that prevents residents from sleeping as it says in the opposing passage can easily be addressed by setting an appropriate time frame and having the park closed at a reasonable hour. The opposing passage stated that the park is too expensive and that the fence alone is 70,000 dollars and that dog owners shouldnt pressure the city to provide the space they cannot provide themselves.
Dogs will protect people in their family, once you have a dog for a while the dog's instincts will make you part of their pack, and a dog's owner is the “pack leader”, they get this from their ancestors which are wolves.

Foer's essay analyzes his city's complex civic situation regarding dogs and parks "...On December 5th the Board of Health will vote..." (Foer 214). That situation initiated a conversation about his dog and then a more broader conversation on human/animal relationships "Our various struggles-to communicate, to recognize and accommodate each other's desires-simply to coexist..." (Foer 215). Foer states that dogs perhaps don't belong in the city "it's easy to forget just how strange it is that dogs live in New York in the first place" (Foer 214). Given that the city has such limited open-space this might actually be true and it gives readers a sense of what what dogs in urban areas have to deal with. He then reveals to us the negative things his dog George does "As it turns out, she[George] is a major pain an awful lot of time... She mounts guess, eats my son's toys, is obsessed with squirrels..." ( Foer 214-215).

Living in Michigan there’s always the routine that us Michiganders go through that follows our unpredictable weather. When spring hits we settle for looking at leaves as the blow along the chilly wind. When it’s time for summer we shoot towards having a good time on a beach, amusement park, pool party, or anything that resembles water. When fall hits it never fails to remind us that we need to rake the leaves that it leaves behind. Winter arrives with its chills and snow that makes us stay in our houses with a mug of hot chocolate, but it is during this weather where I notice a big difference in my neighborhood and in Ann Arbor in the choice of coats that we trust to keep us warm.
