Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE IfTHMIDGE HfftAlD July 25, 1973 Ask Andy Dog family Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Bar- bara Holman, 11, of Cleve- land, Ohio, for her question: Are-huskies and malamutes really members of the dog fam ily? Yes, indeed they are. The Si berian husky and the Alaskan malamute are qualified mem- bers of the dog family, Cam dae. The charming samoyet and the sturdy Eskimo dog also are genuine canine ani- mals. Though members of the same family, they are four dif- ferent breeds of dog. All of them are specially suited to be- friend the human family in polar regions. Ages ago, an assortment ol wild dogs made themselves at home in most parts of the world. Some adjusted to life in the tro- pics, some to life in the tem- perate zones, and several wild wolfish types to life in polar climates. This happened millions of years before the human fam- ily arrived on the earth. For a long time, our early ancestors regarded the dogs as wild enemies, to be fought or avoided. Nobody knows when this policy changed, though most likely it occurred grad- ually as people decided that some wild dogs were less men- acing than others. In any case, there is evidence that the Stone Age people of Europe had friends in the dog family at least years ago. This arrangement started as a sort of trade agreement. They agreed to use their sup- erior sniffers to help man-the- hunter track down his game animals. Man agreed to reward his half-wild helpers with hunks of delicious cooked meat. In time, the dogs were permitted to warm themselves by the campfire and even to take shel- ter in the family cave. In those faroft days, our hemisphere was recovering from the last Ice Age. The year round climate was damp and chilly, and man's first friends of the dog family were adjusted to severe weather con- ditions. Most likely they wore thick weather proof coats and had large tufted feet for run- ning over the icy slush. As the glaciers receded, the climate grew milder. But the fossil records of man's fust animal friend during this per- iod are sketchy. Some of the shaggy dogs may have gone north with the glaciers. Per- haps other wild dogs, adjusted to southern regions, moved north and became friendly with the New Stone Age people of Europe. In any case, several species of wolfish wild dogs were at home in the frozen north when the Eskimos arrived. And some were tamed to become stout- hearted work dogs and family pets. In time, four separate breeds of these cold country dogs were developed in and near the Arctic Circle. The Siberian husky originat- ed in the cold northern reg- ions of the Old World. The Alaskan malamute is a New World breed, domesticated in the Arctic regions of North America. The samoyed, who looks like Lassie dressed up for a polar expedition, ori- ginated with the northern Lapp peoples. Some people refer to these breeds as Eskimo dogs, though actually the true Eskimo dog is a fourth breed. All of these cold climate members of the dog family wear lined, weath- er-proof jackets, with a shaggy topcoat and a warm woolly undercoat next to the skin. AU have extra-large feet with tufts of hair between the toes. And all of them are friendly, de- pendable characters, strong and willing to work. asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765. HtmtiBgton Beach, California 92648.
