Samoyeds, Can't Find Them in Winter

These Russian dogs, known as smiley sammies have black lips that curve upward into a sort of smile, they are usually white and have a lot of fur. They love people, are amazing for families with young children and they are very friendly and obedient. They come from the same place as huskies and have a tendency to sing or howl every night, sometimes at five in the morning, or is that last part just me? They have little to no odor but in my dog's case that doesn't seem true. They are generally loud and need a lot of attention in the grooming department. They need a daily amount of physical exercise so taking them around the block every day is fine, also a great excuse to get outside. The live pretty long, about twelve to fifteen years so you have plenty of time before the funeral. The are prone to some cancers kidney disease, diabetes and arthritis since they are a bit large, medium sized that is. They also don't like it when their owners go away for a while and howl at every closed door. Pretty great dog in general.
Most of this is personal experience and some from Animal Planet.
