Cool Dog Sled Envelope

We've been really forgetful about posting about this cool thing that Franki V sent us.


One day we got an envelope in the mail.  It looked like this, but had our address on it and the return address was in Vancouver.
We used our Siberian intelligence to deduce that it must be from Franki because we don't know anypup else in Vancouver.  We thought it was a super cool envelope.  It traveled by dogsled to get to our house!

Franki sent it to us as part of the Gold Rush Trail Dog Sled Mail Run.  Dog teams work together to carry the mail from Quesnel, British Columbia all the way to Barkerville, BC.  The envelope was also postmarked from stops along the way.  Mom thought it was especially cool that it went to Barkerville and anyone who knows her will understand why.

So thanks again, Franki!  We are keeping the envelope in a very special place!

PS. Franki emailed us some cool pictures of our mail enroute.  Check out a few of them:

Huskies have such cool stuff. Momma looks for Tervuren stuff all the time but usually finds the same old stuff.

How very cool. That's something to keep.

Our mom actually has a seld dog collection of stamps and all sorts of stuff like that. She wins them on ebay. I think she should buy us toys instead.

That is so nice of Franki to send that to you. Those were great pictures of the mail run. We are hoping that you are enjoying the Pacific Northwest.

Wow. Those must be serious huskies. Ari's idea of mail delivery is to take important things (like contracts) and put them in her crate. Maybe she thinks it's a big mailbox?
