Dog Exhibit Current Venue

"DOGS: Wolf, Myth, Hero & Friend", the exhibit created by the Natural History Museum (NHM) of Los Angeles County, has now been set up at the National Geographic Explorers Hall  in Washington D.C. where it will remain on display through September 6, 2004. In 2002, the NHM  selected the Inuit Sled Dog as one of nine breeds to be featured in this multimedia project and asked the ISDI to assist in developing the section on our breed. You can read more about our involvement in the December 2002 issue, Volume 5, Number 1, of The Fan Hitch.
