SAMS recently received this wonderful photograph from Bob Gaskin (president of Samoyed Association Of Canada and member of the Samoyed Club Of America). Bob wrote:
Attached is photo of sammy sled team from
Mountain Iron, MN which is north of Duluth.
On Feb 20, 1990 this was mailed to me by a
Henry Shonse, who stated in his letter that he
was in his senior year at Mountain Iron High
School when photo was taken. He trained the
sled team. Would be in 1940 or ’41.
At the time he was living in Goose Bay, NL, Canada
and had come to Toronto, Ontario, Canada for a visit
and dropped in to see our dog show.
Over the years I was unable to contact him and in

Perhaps some one in your Regional Club may know
of this team if you could post it on your Club’s website.
It may be of historical interest to your club.
I am on my last year of a two year term as President
of the Samoyed Association of Canada and also a member
of the Samoyed Club of America.
