(Post 2 of 4)

Timon helps take care of a dog team at the public dog yard in Longyearbyen. They had a work party today, so Eric and I helped clear up the garbage and check the fences.

Dozens of dogs share two-storey fenced accommodation and their handlers come to clean, feed, run and love them. These sled dogs are kept for sport (unlike the works dogs elsewhere in the north), and they are very friendly.

We met lots of people at the yard, but we had to earn our keep. Check out the next post.
