Arrival Story:
We found Sven at the Pet Store at a local Mall. We had gotten our Husky there a few months earlier. The Husky turned out to have a congenital defect of his leg, so they gave us a store credit for the amount we paid for him. We happened by one day and there was Sven. The rest of his litter mates had found homes, and he was all alone. We fell instantly in love, and took him home that day. He was a 'Momma's boy', my shadow and contstant companion for 8 years. We will miss him forever.

Sven crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 23, 2007 following a very sudden illness. He had no symptoms, and was his perky self when we left him on the morning of May 22 to go out of town for a doctor's appointment. When we returned that evening he was acting strange, a bit lethargic, and just not himself. The next morning we woke up to find him barely responsive. His muscles were limp, and he hardly acknowledged us. A quick trip to the Vet found he had a large tumor on his liver that had burst. They figured with treatment he would only have a couple of weeks to live. We felt it was best to put him down and usher him gently across the bridge.
