It's a good thing the samoyed decided to skip the Iditarod.

my dog sledding friends inform me that the average modern samoyed has too much coat for the conditions one might encounter during the iditarod [too-long fur apparently allows formation of icicles in the coat].

The samoyed (literally "automobile" in Russian) was bred in the open tundra of northern Siberia where the humidity is in the 4% range and the winds howl.

There isn't a lot of snow up there, and the dogs and people move with the grazing reindeer.

They have a lot of urinary tract problems in warmer areas from too much water in the air and in them, but they shed an angora quality undercoat in the spring.

automobile? i'm not believing that one. unfortunately, i don't know any russian, and babelfish translates 'smoyed' as 'samoyed', so i can't check up on you beyond motor and self eater.

i can vouch for that fur, though.
