Arrow Gulluk’s Voyage to Nowhere: A Puzzle Everyone Awaits

Gulluk, an 11 year old 30 kg black, grey and white Labrador husky was born to survive even the worst cold weather condition and was a trained sled dog. He belong to a unique rare breed of emblematic cross breed of Labrador with the wolves who now has as few as 60 to 70 in number remaining alive all over the world. Owned by Dan and Donna Bowden, the dog have broader chest, stockier legs, enormous paws and massive head. Labrador huskies are a working breed who are trained to run on vast snow fields and terrains, Gulluk loves to run and so he did. On March 26 while snow wind howls at 145 kms/hr he leaped out the fence of the Bowdens and started his runaway journey and initially wandering around St. Margaret’s Bay where the Bowdens and their neighbors rally around luring him with everything from roasts chicken, turkey, steak, bacon and everything they could think of.
Gulluk came to the Bowden’s home when the couple was still in grief from the death of Gulluk’s older brother Jack, who died from a massive heart attack on the night of Jan. 31, Donna’s birthday. Jack was a sled dog given to them by Scott Hudson who also gave them Gulluk when Jack died. When Gulluk came to them, he initially went straight to the fridge and lay down the floor as if sniffing the scent of his brother who was has once lied in the same spot dead. Brothers Jack and Gulluk even appeared together before when they are both living on the TV series Survivorman in the episode entitled: Labrador.

It might be that Gulluk wandered somewhere looking for his long lost brother Jack or maybe he has gone to the rest of his own pack and breed somewhere in the vast snowy terrains. The search continue and the Bowdens although devastated by their loss was optimistic Gulluk would find his way home to his loving adopted parents.
