Gone...but not forgotten

NorthWapiti's Mr. Snuffleupagus - Born: July 13th, 1996
(Meomar's Blunder x NorthWapiti's Ginger Grant)

Gus is often, unfairly, overshadowed by his brothers, Grover and Smiley. He is a fine dog in his own right though! Gus is normally the dog I turn to at starting lines and other crowded places - he knows his job and is always keen to do it!  He was the only dog to be in lead at the ceremonial start, restart and finish line for me on the 2001 Iditarod. A very dependable dog - I'd be lost without him!
