Happy news about animals
Last July the staff of “Go North!” visited the KARE 11 morning shows to explain their educational adventure . and to invite viewers to name a husky puppy.
Three thousand suggestions later, the puppy has a name – and so do five of her brothers and sisters.
That puppy – now much bigger – joined Go North! member Mille Porsild on our set Tuesday morning. The adorable dog will carry the name “Sunrise” – a moniker suggested by eight KARE 11 viewers.
Sunrise comes from a litter of eight, and Go North! liked user suggestions so much they used five more of your name suggestions. According to the group “We indeed received so many great names that a list has been compiled of names for future Polar Husky puppies.”
Her sisters have been named Kinupok, Luna, Sisu, and Qannik. The three males in the litter have been named Pingo, Chukchi and Yoik.
Go North! professionals visit exciting destinations … and using the Internet as a teaching tool … allow students from around the world to join the trek. The kids collaborate with topic experts, indigenous peoples, each other and Team GoNorth! live in the field.
