Wapiti Siberian Husky Kennels
Skookum of Anadyr x
Alaskan's Kessa of
May 27, 2000 - February 28, 2004
Words are failing me today. Late
last night, February 28, 2004, Kobuk died from complications
resulting from emergency surgery to repair a perforated ulcer.
He had been to the vet Thursday
and gave neither Dr. Baetsle or I any real idea of the serious
condition he was harboring.
We will seriously miss his unique
and quirky personality.
We were so grateful to
Earl and Natalie Norris for leasing us 2x Iditarod finisher 'Kessa'
for the litter which included not only Kobuk, but his
Denali and sisters
and Kluane as well.
Kobuk was their goofy brother, part of our 'National Park' litter.
Still handsome in his own
way - this leggy, hard working dog was expected to be a real asset
to the team. He was part of our final training pool in Alaska for
Iditarod 2004 when we lost him one week before the start of the
Rainbow Bridge Brigade
