|I am an Alaskan Malamute. The secret of where I first
came from is hidden deep in the blizzard snows of the polar ice, and there is where it
will stay. Modern man has no idea where I came from, and the ancient Mahlemut Indians that
worked to develop my breed will not reveal the secret.
I will tell you that I am a breed that loves man beyond even my own understanding. I am one that has a sense of humor, I find joy in work that causes other breeds to cringe. Some humans think that I am stubborn, and therefore not very smart, but I am one of the most intelligent dogs in the world. I have often used my brain and humor to frustrate my human friends, but if you take the time to understand me and my independence,you will find out how smart I really am. If I sound as if I am bragging, I'm not. I do not believe in false modesty, nor any other falsehoods, I do not know how to lie. You will see in my eyes the kind of honesty that men can only hope to find.
Through my bloodlines God blessed me with a body that contains power that other breeds envy. Of the northern breeds, I have no peer. My fur is such that the most frigid winter blast is to me but a refreshing breeze. While my size and appearance can intimidate some people, most are drawn to my looks.
If you help me understand what you want (by working with me a lot), and you treat me with love and respect, I will usually do as you ask of me. I have courage that any Marine would be proud to claim. If forced into a fight, I am ferocious; in competition I do not like to lose. If a human chooses to become my companion, and treats me with love and kindness I will sacrifice my very life to keep that human from harm.
When you fully comprehend the Aurora Borealis; then will you understand me............. I am Alaskan Malamute.
