This morning on the way to my work I saw dogs playing on the main square. As I love saying, it was another cold morning in Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk. The temp was minus 40 degrees Celsius. Dogs and extreme cold weather… What a cute mixture! They are not frozen… Alive! Joyful! Cute!

Yesterday morning I had a short walk with my Yakut laika puppy, Ogonyok. Weather was not extremely cold in Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk. A little bit foggy and with -40C/-40F. Take a look at below pictures. No navigation on rivers in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in winter. All waterways are frozen till next April. Next navigation will start in June and last through September. A view of the Yakutsk city river port that is actually not seen in the mist.

Great news! As someone said, «Oops, we did it again!» We launched the new website dedicated solely to the cutest Yakut laika dogs. Our dream became true. The resource is supported by Arctic Travel LLC, Lena Sidorova (a cynologist), Ajar Varlamov & me.. The Yakut laika is the unique Yakutia-originated breed of Siberian huskies. They’ve got blue eyes. They can run long distances for ever. They are the best hunters and herders’ helpers. They are so wonderful and beautiful that they apparently deserve your attention. Let’s make them…

Here we go! Ajar Varlamov’s photo report on his recent dog sledding along the Lena River to the Lena Pillars National Park, one of the biggest in the Siberia’s Republic of Yakutia. Major heroes in his pictures are, certainly, Yakutian laikas (representatives of the famous Siberian huskies). 24 photos

Just a few Ajar Varlamov’s photographs of Yakutian laikas (a type of Siberian huskies) taken in the course of his recent dog sledding to Lena’s Pillars.
