Nanook is a cute little Siberian husky dog, one of the Ty Beanie Babies that were so popular a few years ago. Born in 1996, Nanook is now retired and can start doing some serious travelling. He arrived in Skagway after a long trip from Daytona Beach, Florida today, and will be with me on all of my travels from now on. Here are some photos of his first day
Nanook’s arrival in Skagway was first class and well padded – and perhaps no more crowded than some economy airlines! He doesn’t look too happy, though

Welcome to the Yukon Territory, little guy! A perfect home for a retired husky to be based
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! 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.
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’ve been without one until today. I feel much better now
