From the wolves back to the dogs
While studying the wolves I more and more realized that dogs werent able to get my attention anymore. The wolves behavior, expressional capabilities and their social relations were so much more complex than the dogs ones.
Than sometimes a friend of mine invited me to drive a dogsled. Unfortunately it did not happend that time. But as I am very curious the idea was burned into my mind. Later on my mate found Sleddogtours. Although it had been a long way for just one "mushday", I booked and drove to Todtmoos. Three feet snow and bright sun rewarded me. On that mushday I was infected by a nearly uncurable disease called "the husky virus". As I knew about the total costs of ownership I denied to realize being infected. But the sting of seeing dogs living together in packs, behaving more like wolves than dogs was deeply buried into my exhausted flesh. It took one more month fighting against it, then the infection broke out und flushed all reasonable arguments away. I found a single picture on the net. It was small, it was bad quality, it was a not worth a second look. But it did not need a second look. On the first look it hit my optical nerve, surrounded my brain kicking its ass from behind copied itself onto that everytime bumping thing in my chest...how do you call it...? Oh...yes "heart".
I woke up when the screensaver blackened the screen. The feaver of the "husky-virus" had reached critical limits and there was nothing to do than going for a therapy (Huskyvirus) . I had seen the cure and the only question was *how* to reach it. Like most therapies this one is a very expensive one, because of the equipment ( Ausrüstung ) needed for it.
Coolrunner lists a table about the total cost of ownership. Maybe its worth a look even its in german.
