Nanook Explores the World



I Love Nanook pet hoodie This is a journal of the travels of a little toy husky named Nanook, who began exploring the world with me in the Fall of 2011.

I had a Nanook that travelled with me a few years ago, but he was stolen on a cruise ship we were on in 2006, and I’d been without one until getting this little guy.

My history with Nanook’s siblings goes back to 1998, when I ran an auction for the Yukon Quest sled dog race. Each musher carried a Nanook, and those 29 toy huskies raised a total of $11,000 for the society! There were a total of 1,000 Yukon Quest Nanooks ordered, most to be sold in the Yukon Quest stores – see this page for an explanation.


Nanook wasn't the first husky I traveled with - this fairly large, unnamed fellow was with me in my motorcoach in 2004.
