While we knew this day was coming its never one you can really prepare for. The day we have to say goodbye to our loved members of the family. Tikaani left us sometime in the night on February 26th peacefully in his house with his family near by. Age had finally caught up with the last of our wolf dogs and took him quickly. Our boys are finally together north of the rainbow bridge.
Tikaani came to us in early 2009, just months after we had been a part of a large scale rescue effort of a wolf dog breeding program that had lost their owner. Tikaani was found wandering in the same area and shared many features of the dogs from the rescue - figuring he was from the same kennel we took him in. He was reserved but good natured. He bloomed into a gentile loving companion. He welcomed all of our young additions to the kennel with tail wags and playful antics. Its hard to imagine not having Tikaani to welcome our future kennel additions….without a doubt this boy has left a large hole in our hearts. We are happy he was able to go in peace at home with his family that loved him.
The following night we were blessed with one of the best displays of the Northern Lights we have ever seen this far south. We take solace knowing that he has found his way home and is dancing with the rest of his ancestors North of the Rainbow Bridge.
Growing up in Montana my love of the Siberian Husky started at a young age. It has been quite a journey so far. There has been much to learn and still a lot more yet to learn! I truly believe that we are never too old, too experienced, or too full of ourselves to learn something new. I also believe that knowledge is useless unless we are willing to share it with others.
