The story of Pete and Lupine two alaskan malamute pups born in the depths of an Arctic winter...

During last winter’s expedition Joe Henderson was surprised to discover that one of his team, Tikka, was pregnant, it was totally unexpected and a worrying prospect with temperatures hovering at -45c.

But all was to be well and Tikka gave birth to 2 pups, Pete and Lupine

Angus Mill is a UK based photographer and adventurer with a passion for cold places and an expertise in the rigorous of arctic photography. He had developed a great friendship with Joe Henderson of Alaskan Arctic Expeditions and they have traveled for many weeks together through some of Alaska’s most spectacular wilderness.

Alaskan malamutes are one of the most ancient breed of dogs and have lived in Alaska in the company of humans for many thousands of years. They are supremely adapted to the Arctic environment.

Arctic Alaska and in particular the North Slope is an area of harsh beauty, with rolling tundra and some of the lowest temperatures on earth. The area is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north and the Brooks Range mountains to the south and includes part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

    Love my Malamutes, I have 6. Stubborn, independent, intelligent, loving, strong, opinionated...the list goes on. Won't stay inside no matter how cold (to me) it gets. Nature sure takes care of the littles born in the cold. Awesome photos!
