Isobel – Blind Sled Dog

Isobel, a blind sled dog runs at her dog yard near Churchill, Man. Thursday, Nov. 8, 2007. Isobel, a six-year-old husky cross, has all the great qualities of a sled dog. She loves to run, has strength and endurance, and works well alongside the other dogs tethered to the sleds that take tourists out on the subarctic terrain of Churchill, Man. It takes a while for visitors to notice that she is completely blind.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jonathan Hayward
