Mr. Klondike has been a friend of Hilltop's since early 2013 when he started visiting us. This fluffy boy is a Samoyed or "Sammie". This breed is traced back to Northern Siberia (hence the fluff) and is one of fourteen "ancient" breeds that are most genetically similar to wolves. Very cool.
As mentioned on the home page, Klondike is certainly a teddy bear. He is a sweet, cuddly boy who knows how to dish out the love. Interestingly, he also has a reputation on the hill for possibly being the only "self-cleaning" dog we know. You would think with that white coat he would be prone to getting dirty, but even during rainy stays Klondike remains brilliantly white (maybe to blend in with that Siberian snow??). We don't know how he accomplishes this, but we wish he would teach it to his neighbors.
Clearly, Klondike is a very cool friend to have, and we're so glad he spends his vacation time with us!!
