20 Pups Who Can Teach You Thing or Two about Being A Viking

Every February the city of York in North Yorkshire, England is invaded by ancient warriors. The Jorvik Viking Festival celebrates the thousand year hold the Nordic people had over the area.

In Norse culture, dogs were regarded as companions and represented fidelity and faithfulness. The closeness of man and pooch is intertwined in their mythology. Frigga, the goddess of marriage, traveled by a chariot drawn by a pack of beautiful dogs. Vikings believed that when a slain warrior ascends to Valhalla their loyal pups wait at the gates to greet them. Best friends in life and after!
