Sled dog howling

Dogster founder Ted Rheingold suggested I take a look at a slide show on The New York Times website. It features some of Greenland's Inuit hunters, who spend up to two months on the ice with their amazing dogs. They seek out narwhals, seals, and polar bears, much as they have for the past 4,000 years.

Whether or not you agree with this subsistence hunting or using sled dogs, we think you'll find the photos a stunning look into an ancient culture that's little changed over thousands of years. Click here for the full slide show.
