Growing up as the youngest AKA Baby of the family usually found me back with the Adults. My Folks best friends, Frankie and Pat Brawand were my idols. They had ALL the animals including a team of Huskies and Malamutes. Frankie would tuck me under his wing and I learned about his passion for mushing. Who knew, but God, that this passion would be re-developed in me years later? First, the Pet Wash, dedicated to my Nonaya. Second, meeting my Friend Allyson through the Pet Wash, who just happens to own a team of Huskies. Third, tagging along with Allyson to the Annual Mushing Dry Run, who introduced me to some wonderful people that also knew Frankie and Pat. And finally, discovering the hidden passion from years ago had been a gift left from my idol. So very thankful…….
