The Siberian Husky originated off the eastern Siberian peninsula. Around 1908 this breed was used in the All-Alaskan sweepstakes, a dog sled race from Nome to Candle and back and used heavily in the Alaskan gold rush. In 1930 the last of the Siberians were exported from the Soviet Union as they closed the borders of Siberia to external trade. This same year the breed was recognized by the AKC and then nine years later in Canada. The nickname Husky is actually derived from the work “ESKY” which was used for the breed in reference to the Eskimos who used the breed. The Siberian Husky has a thicker, double coat than most breeds and sheds this coat heavily once or twice a year. Coloring of the coat can range from nearly all black, to nearly all white, and the same for red. This breed is smaller than most people think, ranging from 20 to 23 ½ inches tall at the withers and 35 to 60 pounds
We take one of our Tiny Ones figurines and mount it inside a three dimensional Sleigh. This ornament is a little red sleigh with green interior, gray runners on top of a pile of snow. Each one has a gold tone cord for handing this unique collectible decoration on your Christmas tree, or displaying it anywhere. The base measures 3 ½” X 1 ¾” with felt covered bottom. The green interior has tiny gold buttons to match the gold trim on the outside of the sleigh. The empty sleigh stands about 2 ¼” tall, and the figurine would rise above that. The picture perfect decoration for the entire winter season! “Over the river and thru the woods…..” pops into mind. All items are individually blister packaged, ready to give as a gift, or hang in your store. Great item for that special someone!
