Default The world's only military dogsled team

It is called Sirius, and it patrols in Greenland. I know that some of you have beef with National Geographic because of CM, but I love reading their magazine online, and I really love their pictures. This article is a good read, but it doesn't sit right with me though. They have pictures of the sled dogs, showing each one's beautiful face and their name, and then you read the article and find out that each one will be shot in the head when they retire. The team says its hard for them to do, and I understand that such working dogs may not be suitable for pet placement, but it still doesn't sit right. Thoughts?
