BALTO OUR SPECIAL LITTLE GUY Jan. 8th, 1997 ~ Aug. 14th, 2008 My beautiful boy, you went so suddenly and I was far from ready to see you go. He was my little Angel-Brat, who we finally, officially decided to adopt on the eve of my birthday, just shy of his third birthday. He came to us a scrawny adolescent, already showing his Siberian Husky-signature grace and beauty, and with lots of ‘teenaged’ rebellion still to come. He matured into a dazzlingly beautiful and intelligent canine son for me, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (literally), healthy and happy… I couldn’t have been more proud of him if I’d given birth to him myself! He carried his youthful joy of life all the way to his early senior years, then he was stolen from us so abruptly by spleen cancer. He was too true to his centuries-old Northern breed instincts to hide sickness or injury for as long as possible, and there was far too little time to say goodbye. He was sweet and gentle, silly and sassy, elegant and regal, wild and crazy, adorable and affectionate, curious and devious, a loving brother to Benson and ‘Mummy’s Little Enforcer,’ and he sang Husky songs and danced ‘n pranced through each day. He was cat-like in his careful self-cleaning routine and occasional aloofness, wolf-like in his merciful swiftness in hunting (raccoons were his favourite, and squirrels were also a specialty, the little devil… we were glad when we nipped all THAT in the bud!). He was our escape-artist extraordinaire (alias ‘Houndini’) and the Scarberian Husky High-Jump Champion. Because of him, I educated myself thoroughly about the distinctive and challenging personality traits of his breed, just so I could truly understand him and keep him safe and happy. He welcomed people and other dogs, and delighted in their attention. He was playful, mischievous, and an incredibly loving and sensitive little guy. He was one of the best things that ever happened to me. It was my great and far-too-brief privilege to share his life. See you at Rainbow Bridge, my Balto. We’ll always love you.
