Getting The Mail

Once our runs get over 10 miles it is very tempting to run down to the Perryvale Store/Post Office with the team to pick up the mail by dog team. That whole 'killing two birds with one stone' thing - and besides  the run is actually a pretty nice one.

So, the last couple mornings that is exactly what we have done.

Tuesday's team traveling the highway ditch
Astro taking a break

Simone watering dogs on the trail!
Astro, Q, Wifi and Charge
The team patiently waiting for us to open a gate for them.

This morning's team heading to the Post Office

Parked outside the Post Office at Perryvale

Heading by the church on the way out of town.
Heading home. 
Two good runs and a good haul at the post office - more cheques then bills!! Wahoo!!!

The teams look so great. I'd love to be a local & see the dogs running on a daily basis. Sitka's Mom

Looks like a good time was had by all. I envy you. Love the dogs.

I'll bet by now the people of Perryvale are so used to seeing the team "parked" at the post office, to them, it's just "Karen picking up her mail", as though it were just another vehicle

That is a perfect day - running dogs, combining tasks, and - most importantly - more checks than mail. Not sure that last one has ever happened here.
