Y’all, having sled dogs has been so good for my body image. And not because mushing is a joy-filled, physical outdoor activity, although that’s true. It’s actually something much simpler than that. pic.twitter.com/PJDMtBF0Bv— Blair Braverman (@BlairBraverman) July 13, 2019
Dogsledder Blair Braverman shared something she realized over the years she has worked with sled dogs, training and feeding them from when they were pups until retirement. She saw how these dogs were built in different ways and yet there is something so wonderful in the diversity of their bodies and how they were designed.

It may simple and obvious but her experiences with the sled dogs showed her how these dogs having different body types is just how nature intended them to be. There's nothing wrong with being built uniquely from others. In fact, the dogs don't even care how their bodies look like. If ever they were aware about that at all, they would probably not care still as long as they are fed and get to run around and have fun.
Some of them eat thousands of calories a day and are still complete stringbeans. They eat literally three times as much food as everyone else. pic.twitter.com/Qd5gzbLils— Blair Braverman (@BlairBraverman) July 13, 2019
Some of them can eat, like, a tablespoon of kibble, and the next day they need a bigger harness. They’re easy keepers; their bodies naturally want to be bigger. Which is good! Easy keepers make great sled dogs. pic.twitter.com/tgGkbypAPe— Blair Braverman (@BlairBraverman) July 13, 2019
