Brilliant white fur and a wolfish demeanor mark the Samoyed as a distinctive breed. Hailing from Siberia, Samoyeds were sled dogs before they were the fashionable upper-class pets they are today. They are friendly, playful dogs who can be a bit high-maintenance. So how much green for a coat so white?
Samoyeds compete in the ring during the 134th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2010 in New York. There are 2,500 dogs competing at Madison Square Garden for the coveted title of best in show. The top prize will be presented Tuesday night. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)
