Standing guard on the sea ice, a husky confronts me as I try to approach it. MUch more than pets, huskies are considered working partners. Their thousand-year long relationship with the people that call the Arctic "home", is what has allowed civilization to exist in the northern latitudes. Without huskies, it would have been impossible for Inuit hunters to find their prey on the vast frozen seascapes of the Arctic. Today, many communities have replaced their dog teams with snowmobiles, but in places like Northern Greenland, these dogs still run over the frozen sea.
