But this. OMG this. This is one of my biggest pet peeves lately and I have no idea who started it. But Sibes, Malamutes, etc, are NOT NORDIC. There is nothing Norse about the breed. Nor is "Nordic" a proper substitute for "Northern" as it only relates to certain countries in Northern Europe. It's Spitz, Laika, or just Northern.

If I could strangle the person who came up with "Nordic"...and I have a feeling it was a show breeder.

well the swedes live next to the norse. and the swedish varangians & their king Rurik gave the name Rus to the east european slavs they conquered. in turn that developed into the ethnonym russian. the russians eventually ruled siberia AND claimed & colonized alaska. so that makes it okay, right.
