We've lost a number of dogs over the years and a number of very
special ones in the last year, but none more special in my eyes
then this one. It has taken me two days to be able to share this
news and every word of this eulogy has been accompanied by tears.
Charlie was a character. Well known in schools, old folk homes,
and various other public places, Charlie made friends wherever he
went!! A true ambassador for the breed. Charlie worked on his Open
Obedience degree for 3 years, never once getting a leg, but at one
time or another performing each exercise (just never altogether).
A good friend once told me that some dogs make very big
contributions to the dog game, not by their accomplishments in the
ring or on the trail, but by making you fall in love with the
breed. Charlie was the Siberian Husky that did that to me!!!
Charlie was the dog that inspired my PASSION for the breed. His
love for life, his special spirit and his wicked sense of humor
will always be the standard every other Siberian in my life will
need to live up to.
My world is a duller place as of Saturday.
