- This is Sadie, our then-11-year old Samoyed, in her element. A northern breed, she’s never happier than when she’s chin deep in the cold white stuff!!! This shot was taken the day after the Washington – Baltimore area’s December ’09 blizzard, December 20, 2009.
Camera used was the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens, UV filter attached. Shutter speed was 1/800, aperture f/14, exp. 0.00, and iso 800, white balance auto, focal length 80mm. Post work included levels and curves and slight cropping in Photoshop.
“AKC MEET THE BREEDS®: Samoyed
A hardy and eager worker, the Samoyed is known for black lips that curl slightly at the corners into the “Samoyed smile.” Bright and alert, he likes to stay busy and enjoys participating in agility, herding, weight pulling, sledding, pack hiking, conformation shows and more! His heavy, weather resistant coat is suitable for very cold climates and should be pure white, white and biscuit, cream or biscuit.
A Look Back
An ancient working breed, the Samoyed is very close to the primitive dog – no mixture of wolf or fox runs through the breed’s gene pool. He was developed by the Samoyede people of Siberia. They used the dogs for herding reindeer, hunting and hauling sledges as well as guard work. The breed was cherished by these people – they even allowed them to sleep in their tents – because they depended on the dogs for their survival." Many thanks to the AKC for the above info!!
