Over The Rainbow Bridge

Lovely Moose!  We lost Moose on Thursday June 23rd 2011.  The last few weeks were hard for him and us.  He went from being a very healthy and strong dog all of his life, to finally revealing his age to us as he slowly started to weaken.  We feel lucky that his aging didn't impact him too much. Always a hardy soul, very single minded and much more a people dog than a pack dog.  He only cared for a small number of furry buddies, never really needing to be overly social. He enjoyed more time with us, walks every day and lots of special treatment like having the  play areas to himself each and every night.  Moose had been in our lives for little over 14 years. Remarkable for a big dog, a fine looking, well coated Alaskan Malamute.  He was with me at the beginning of my mushing journey, a part of my first 2-dog team and then part of a bigger team.  He was a great skijor partner, he held the line tight infront of my mountain bike and did many demonstrations in our earlier days of running "All Terrain Dog"... the one-stop place for mushing gear. 

Moose was a huge part of my learning curve and I will be forever grateful for his patience with me (us) and all that we were able to learn and master through him and because of him.  Moose was buried in our special rainbow garden alongside his friends - Sasquatch, Opechee, Keeper, Tisha and Biffa.  The dogs broke out into a group howl as we brought Moose over to his resting place, I know they were fully aware of our sad loss.  Right at that moment, 3 crows flew overhead making their skricky noise as if sharing messages from the spirit world with Moose, reassuring him  that his spirit is being taken care of and that all is okay.  I looked up as if to thank them, that they were here, for him.

We miss your peacefulness Moose!  Love ya.
