This is a photo I took of a sled dog at Polebridge, Montana. He had the most intense eyes. We were there to watch the Montana Ididarod.

Enjoying what Montana has to offer, greatly influences my work. Rodeos, horses, mountains, all of this plays a part in what I create. I lived here in Montana, taking care of cattle and horses on the ranch until I retired a few years ago.

I now spend my time recreating in Montana, and creating photos and paintings from what I see here in this state.

    Gorgeous, i have a husky and its all about their eyes; no other dog comes close to hinting at those depths and intensity- there’s other world’s under that surface! I also love that this is a working dog’s portrait, beautifully done!

    Hi EchoNorth,
    It was my first time to see the dogs pulling sleds. It was awesome. I’m uploading more throughout today.

    BEAUTIFUL IMAGE. I JUST RECENTLY PURCHASED A 75% SIBERIAN HUSKY, 25% TIMBER WOLF, MALE. I GOT “CHEWBACCA” ON APRIL 24, 2008 AT THE AGE OF 8 WEEKS. HE IS GROWING VERY QUICKLY INTO A BEAUTIFUL HYBRID. I’VE HAD FOUR HIGH CONTENT HYBRIDS SINCE 1977, I MISS THEM. CHEWY, AS I CALL HIM, HAS A BROWN RIGHT EYE AND HIS LEFT EYE IS BROWN ON TOP, GREY ON THE SIDES AND BLUE ON THE BOTTOM. WHEN I TAKE A PHOTO OF HIM ON THE LEFT SIDE, THAT BLUE JUST POPS OUT IN THE PHOTO. BOB

    Hi Bob,
    Your Chewbacca sounds beautiful! I bet he’s incredibly intelligent also. We don’t have a dog right now, I miss them. I used to like having a border collie and a lab. They’re so smart, and they tease each other constantly. Their games kept me entertained better than the movies!

    Aloha Donna, this is a beautiful image! I love the sled dog races. I watched and photographed the start of the Yukon Quest 1000 Mile International Sled Dog Race in Fairbanks Alaska a couple of years ago and it is a sensational event.

  • Thank you for the feature in this group! It was so interesting to learn a bit about the dog races, I had no idea how they took place until we went to Polebridge…
