I believe that you mush a dog rather than a dog mushes.Is the word dog mushing countable?
Is it possible to say: I would like to see a dog mushing?
If not, what should I say instead?
TekschI read an article about Alaska which said that dog mushing had been a tradition for about 100 years and that there are held races now.
So maybe I should rather say:
I'd like to see a dog mushing race.
To mush is to direct or control a number of dogs. These dogs are harnessed together and pull a sled. You could say, "I want to see a dog sled race." The person directing the dogs is doing the mushing.
Or likewise: I enjoy taking part in dog mushing races.
(this would as well answer my question referring to the article)
If you could also say that you had seen cars driving - cars don't drive, they are driven. Dogs don't mush, they are mushed.Let's go back to your example:
I used to mush dogs in Alaska.
If you are telling me about it now and I find it fascinating, could I just say:
I wish I had seen this dog mushing.
