There are lots of dogs here in Longyearbyen (but no cats...something about them not being kind to the various birds that live here). Some dogs are pets and many are sled dogs. Their paws are much thicker so they can walk over the various terrain found in Svalbard. Apart from Nemo who accompanied us on our expedition, the dog to the right is one we ran into in town. We are looking for some pictures to show you of the huskies we saw in the kennel next to the eider ducks and will post it later here. Thanks for your questions!
