Le chien

  • Trois nouveaux compagnons

Yesterday, two of our dogs went suddenly back to the village! We don't know yet the name of the dog we kept here, but he seems to become attached to us. He is dutifully watching our camp, and is gladly pulling the sledge full of iceberg ice or scientific equipment. He is saving time on our work, and giving real safety in the polar night, when we are focused on collecting iceberg ice for fresh water, or when doing CTD casts. He is also friendly and cheerful with the children, which is not always the case with polar dogs. Our stock of seal meat is getting low, but a net should be soon under the ice to try to catch some food for his next meals. He can't possibly fast by -35°C.
