When I was asked by the Editor of The Polar Record to write a short note about sledge dogs, I did so, sensible of the appropriateness of the request, in that the year 1936 marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Roald Amundsen's journey to the South Pole.
A sledge dog seems, to have been made by nature for travelling in snow and ice, like the camel for the desert, the horse for the open land and the goat for the mountain. He sleeps comfortably in all kinds of weather, without shelter other than the snow; and when hungry, will eat any kind of food, as he needs must in barren countries, where food is scarce. I have known dogs enjoy a meal of bamboo sticks.
