Alaskan Malamute Dog

Like I promised, it is time to talk about Alaskan Malamute Dog. This type of dog is the largest Arctic dog. This dog is thick and well built with a plumed tail that is held over it’s back. The head is wide with erect ears. The eyes are of medium size, dark brown small, and almond in shape and are obliquely placed in the skull. The dog holds an image of a wolf but with a proud, sweet expression. According to the written standard, dark eyes are preferred, but blue eyes are a fault. The feet are large, of the snowshoe type with tough pads. The thick, coarse double coat averages one to three inches in length and comes in a range of light gray to intermediate shadings of black, sable and shadings of sable to red.  Their weight is 70 to 95 pounds and height is 22 to 26 inches. Their ideal human companions are people who live in cold climate places, outdoorsy types, and are experienced dog handlers. Their traits are Wolf-like appearance, Loyal, Affectionate, Mellow but playful, Eager to please, and Rugged.

The Alaskan Malamute is prone to bloat, hip dysplasia and chondrodysplasia (dwarfism). Alaskan Malamutes are not recommended for apartment life. They are fairly active indoors and should have at least a large yard. If you live in a suburban area, a high fence is a must, but bury the base, because they are likely to dig their way out. The Malamutes coat allows them to withstand extreme cold, but be careful to keep the dogs cool in hot climates. Make sure they have shade and plenty of clean cool water. These dogs seem to get along with everybody—even other dogs. They are very pleasant and open-minded, allowing everyone the benefit of the doubt. Aside from their intimidating looks, they have no real guard-dogging qualities. Life expectancy is about 12 to 16 years. Litter size is about 4 to 10 puppies, average is 6 puppies. The Alaskan Malamute has a dense coat that should be brushed twice a week. This breed sheds very heavily. The undercoat comes out in clumps twice a year. Bathing is most unnecessary, as the coat sheds dirt readily. Dry shampoo occasionally. This dog is clean and odorless.

The Alaskan Malamute is a Nordic sled dog descended from the Arctic wolf. Originally used 2000 to 3000 years ago by these Mahlemuit Eskimos of Alaska, these highly valued dogs were their only form of transportation. These amazing dogs have strength and endurance with a will to work. They pulled not only light traveling sleds, but they also hauled heavy loads of food and supplies for the Arctic people. Packs of Malamutes have participated in many polar expeditions, for which they are particularly well adapted due to their tenacity, sense of direction, and excellent sense of smell.

I am adding a new part, Bible Teaching Part.

This is Sunday, July 26’s daily text. They took no note. This is taken from Matthew 24:39. Anointed Christians knew that 1914 would mark a turning point regarding divine rulership. As soon as they discerned the fulfillment of bible prophecy, they boldly declared to others that God’s rule had begun. Today, with so much evidence that God’s Kingdom is already established in heaven, why do the majority of people not accept what this means? Why are they not able to connect the dots, so to speak, between the state of the world and specific Bible prophecies that God’s people have long been publicizing? Could it be that most people are focusing attention on just what they can see with their eyes? 2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us: “for we are walking by faith, not by sight.” (You see most people are just paying attention to what is going on that moment, not what the bible tells us. We must put faith in Jesus Christ and his father Jehovah God.)  Does their preoccupation with human affairs blind them to what God is doing? Matthew 24:37-39 tells us: “For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. For as they were in those days before the Flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.” Are some of them distracted by the noise of satanic propaganda? 2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us: “among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.” It takes faith and spiritual perception to see what is happening in the spirit realm. How glad we can be that we are not blind to what is really going on!
