Arrival Story: His story started without me. He somehow had obtained wolf blood from one of his parents. His first family bought him. They named him Ese' which is Spanish for "Buddy." They didn't feed him right so he is manurished and smaller than he should be. Somewhere around the age of threein the year 2002, he was brought to a humaine society in Minneapolis and set up for adoption. He spent alot of time there and then moved him to the humaine society in Woodbury. A thirteen girl found him online on a website called, Petfinder. Her mother thought he looked scary in his picture because he had white eyes. The little girl thought he looked rather beautiful and mysterious. She must make him her dog, her best friend. She finally made her parents give in and went to see him at the humaine society. Her parents said, "Just to have a look" They arrived and the little girl explored the kennels to look upon the canine she was so desperate to meet, to give a better home. She quickly searched each kennel until she finally found the white eyed mysterious husky. He was standing up close to kennel door when their eyes met. He must have known this was the little girl who had come to take him to his final home. She knew it too. She crouched down so they were eye level and said,"I've come to take you home, you can finally relax." The teenager was true to her word because that day he was adopted. He spent the next six years with his new family. He's never been happier. He is now sleeping in the house on the floor next to the little girl who is 19 years old and a sophmore in college. She is writing a brief dog story on a laptop computer. And I'm happy with my choice and only wish I could him to college to keep me warm on those cold winter nights up in Ely, Minnesota.

Bio: The first few years I've had him, he's run through cow pastures with my chasing behind him. Run off and spent the coldest night of the year in the countryside somewhere. Until a neighbor two miles away called us and said, we have your dog. And ran off and came prancing back though the front yard with slug bullet holes in his back legs, which still causes him problems. But within those years, he's been fun. He's been on boundry water trips and camping trips. He loves going places and going for rides. He loves being in the house where his family is most the time. He's a great dog to own. And I'm the lucky owner to experince it.

My favorite Places to Visit:: Two Harbors, Minnesota- family relatives there.
Ely, Minnesota- my mom goes to college there.
Park Rapids, Minnesota- We have a cabin there.
Boundry Water Canoe Area Wilderness- vacation there.
We had many joyful adventures together. I will miss you and I will surely never forget you. Goodbye my Blue Eyed Prince of Winter, "Ese". Goodbye.
Earlier today we had to put Chevy down and it was a tough decision, but I think it was for the best. He's been having pain and stiffness in his back legs from a gunshot wound through the muscle of his back legs years ago. He either had a stroke or an aneurysm. The vet did all they could, but he wasn't responding.
He's resting peacefully now and is now up in Rainbow Bridge. I will never forget him and will always cherish all the memories I shared with him.
Mackenzie was a Great Plains subspecies of wolf at the International wolf center of Ely, Minnesota. She passed away in her sleep on May 21st, 2008 at the age of 15. The cause of death is still unknown. Lakota is Mackenzie's sister and I'm sure this has devasted Lakota because out of the four siblings that came to the wolf center in 1993 as pups, Lakota is the only one left. My sympathy goes out to Lakota.
My owner does her workstudy there from late August to early May and this was a unexpected blow to her because she worked at the center for two years now and Mackenzie was one of her favorites as well as Lakota.
We got plenty of snow before Christmas and there where a few days where it got extremely cold. So, they put fresh straw in our kennels to help us stay warm!! And I've got to say...I love straw! We haven't slept in our dog houses since. Well Jag is lucky because she has malamute blubber. My mom came home for winter break and she put lot of fresh straw in my kennel. It won't be long until she goes back to school, then I won't see her for many months. I hope her promise for me to come live with her this summer up in Ely comes true.
