To the editor:
In response to the letter from Mary Lupo - huskies love four things in this world:
small spaces that remind them of the dens they rest in
cold weather, the colder the better
their pack mates, including the human leading their pack. They will die protecting their pack mates
running, running and still more running.
Ms. Lupo and her family should educate themselves about husky behavior before criticizing something. If this isn't clear to Ms. Lupo, a husky would rather run with their pack, including their human, then sit inside any day, even a day that is 5 below.
I grew up in Lake Placid, and when I was 6 or 7, I would go in the sled with my neighbor during the training runs. He loved those dogs and would never abuse them.
