February 1st 1985
She loved people more than anything, t-bones and a good deep snow....
She didn't have any. She loved everything and everyone...except for a young male Husky who came to visit once. She never barked or growled at him, she and Bo just left....
Bo, her yard-mate.
She loved scraps from the steak house I worked in at the time.
She never walked anywhere....she RAN...and always in a straight line
We told jokes together...that always ended with the "Roo roo" punchline
I fell in love with the breed in Alaska (thanks Chuck and Val!!) and found her after I returned home from the Navy. Her mom was full Husky, her dad full Malamute; both were black/white. Her mom had 6 pups, 5 like the parents, 1 like the neighbor dog. I fell for her pretty red fur and those blazing blue eyes.
My girl was earth-bound with me for almost 16 years. She was a great companion, never complaining, always smiling and ready to give you a "roo". I had to make the painful decision to send her to the Bridge 6 years ago today, Memorial day. She went with her yard mate Bo, and I was eaten up with guilt over sending them, even though their aging bodies cried out for relief. After a short while I had a dream they were both standing at the back gate, tails wagging, and I knew they were ok........healthy and young and alive again forever. I know they wait for me there: I promised to bring them treats.
Not a mean bone in my body....a-rooooo!

I came to the Rainbow Bridge 6 years ago today with my black lab pal Bo. Before we came over, we had lived great full lives but had begun to decline in our advancing years. Our health wasn't what it used to be, our sight was mostly gone, as well as our hearing. We still lived to please our humans, but it took longer to get up to go see them, and sometimes we didn't feel like getting up at all. Oh, the puppy in us was still quite alive, but the body just couldn't follow through. The day came when we looked into our human's eyes and we all knew: it was time to set us free. Sure, it was a sad day but also a glorious one because as soon as we were freed from our earthly body we could run again! And roll in the wonderfully cool grass at the Bridge! And chase butterflies!
As we wait patiently for our humans to join us again, rememer we are your angels. And, don't worry about us, we are better than we have ever been!
