Arrival Story:
I had a female eskie for 12 years and she had to be put to sleep, she was 16. I missed her terribly but was afraid to get another eskie because it wouldn't be the same. I read Igo's bio on Petfinders. He was 8 y/o, his previous owner had a baby and Igo was not adapting to being replaced as the center of attention. I thought that since he was a male and I knew about the breed, that I could make the transition and love a new eskie. Well, I did and I do--Love my IGO!

He likes to act tough but once the growling and snarling don't work, he panics and pees. He is such a coward. Mama has to protect him. He has recently gotten over his fear of cats. He is stubborn, unruly and has no manners but I love him anyways.

Forums Motto:
Whacha got? huh, huh, huh!

The life of IGO

Today Igo would have been 16 years old. He was stubborn and a scaredy cat, chock full of eskie attitude but he was MY Igo. He was such a snuggle bug. I loved that about him. I remember torturing myself watching a Christmas special of ANIMAL COPS and just crying and cuddling with Igo. He stayed there letting me cry and snuggle with him for hours.
Igo never passed a bush without rubbing his butt on it. Too funny to watch him, always getting a butt rubby from the bushes. Oh, and cussing out Dixie. He never snapped at her but he would constantly grumble and growl at her. She never took offense. He was her friend--he just talked funny. Dixie loved Igo even if he didn't quite return the feeling. The tables have turned. Now Dixie is usually yelling at lil Bear to quit jumping on her or chewing her legs.

I miss you my boy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I had to put Igo to sleep today. His leg had finally given out and the other was too weak to carry him anymore. I didn't mind giving him a "boost" but when he quit eating, I knew he was telling me "I'm tired, mama. This is no fun".
On the way, I bribed him with a beef/cheese stick and he enjoyed those. I even shared my cookies with him. I stayed with him until it was over. I owed him that after all of his years of love.

I miss my IGO but I couldn't/wouldn't force him to live on my terms.

You have to see my video! I just got a new toy and was playing with it and my mama made me a "movie star". As you can see I don't run very well but I still LOVE to play.
Oh yeah and if you look close on the right side "my" little sister, Ingin is in the movie too, but I am the STAR!
