N.H. State Dog presentation at Wolfeboro Library

WOLFEBORO — The Wolfeboro Public Library will host Harnessing History: On the Trail of New Hampshire's State Dog, presented by Bob Cottrell on Thursday, November 6 at 7 p.m.

The Chinook breed of dogs was established in New Hampshire and became the state dog a relatively short time ago. Historian and dog lover Bob Cottrell will explain who these dogs are and why they are famous.

The breed is named after the original Great Chinook, the first of his breed. The breed was developed in the 1920s by a rough and ready adventurer named Arthur Walden, who spend a significant amount of time as a "dog puncher" in the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush days. Walden later returned to Wonalancet, a small village that is part of the town of Tamworth where he succeeded in his goal of creating a new sled dog with power, endurance, speed and a friendly nature. Cottrell will explain how man and his relationship with the sled dogs won out over machines on several famous polar expeditions.

Chinooks are one of a handful of dog breeds created in America, and they are becoming rare, with only about 1,000 Chinooks living today. Cottrell will likely bring his own pet Chinook and some handcrafted sledding equipment to the presentation.

Bob Cottrell holds an MA from the Winterthur Program in Early American Culture in Delaware. The founding director of the Remick Country Doctor Museum in Tamworth, he is now the Curator of the Henney History Room at the Conway Public Library, a Board member at the Conway Historical Society, and President ex-officio of the Tamworth Historical Society. He serves as an independent history and museum consultant.

The event will be in the library's meeting room, which is handicapped accessible, and refreshments will be served. For more information call 569-2428 or visit www.wolfeborolibrary.org.
