Double fur to pull them through a snow desert. That snow in their eyes, pools of moonstone and gold arrowed against the cold. Muscled team-players, a playful team, best of friends, your best friend. Six Siberians howling. These loyal workers know how to pull. They gather speed over drifts packing down close, their weight harnessed to glide in unison over ice-cold air, slide over frigid rivers, leap past trees like starch-white spectres to carry your weight to your destination.
