Polar Bear Sleds...and Their Sled Dogs



I do have a thing for Polar bears. 

They look so furry and white...like the bear pulling the sled below.  






But I don't know, I kind of want my bears to have some pizazz. 


If I'm going to ride in a sled pulled by bears, I want it to look impressive, like the bears pulling the White Witch's sled in Narnia.


That's more like it...bears with teeth!  


But the harness looks like the bears can slip it off over their heads... scary.  Almost as scary as that woman's hair.


Even better would be riding a Polar bear, like the girl in the Golden Compass. 




Cool ride...and I also mean Brrrr!

But when it comes to Polar bears pulling a sled, my all-time favorite is the painting below:



Oh yes.  Bears with no harnesses pulling a medieval snowmobile. I guess if the bears get too fractious, the armored guy can just fire up the engine!


Seriously though, Polar bears can't be tamed enough to pull a sled; they're much too unpredictable.


But check out the first photo on this page, and the following video, of wild Polar bears playing with sled dogs...it's amazing!






My love for Polar bears shows up in a painting of mine occasionally...what do you think?





So, do you have a thing for Polar bears too?
