In Alaska shoes for dogs have been Introduced. The use of shoes for animals In the far north country Is not merely out of kindness to the dogs. It is a matter of necessity, for one of the greatest dangers to travelers in Alaska is that the dogs which draw •ledges or transport goods freeze their feet by contact with the Ice. This sometimes renders the animals practi cally useless and leaves the traveler without means of transit over the fields of ice. Before the introduction Of the shoes it was the custom to wrap the feet of the dogs in cloth, but this Was a poor measure at best, as the cloths often came off, leaving the poor beasts unprotected. The cloths also Interfered wtth the free locomotion of the dogs. Since the gold fields opened more dogs have been used and great •peed in travel has become necessary. The dog's shoe was inv...
