My Beautiful Siberian Husky Dakota

by Deborah
(Milford MA)

Today Dakota died as I sit beside him on his dog bed. He looked peaceful knowing that i was beside him till the end. He would have been 14 years old on December 2nd. I am glad that I was not home alone when Dakota passed on, my son Ryan was home from college at the time. Dakota left behind two other Siberian Husky buddies, Cleopatra and Jesse, who will miss him greatly.

There is a hole in my heart left by the loss of our beloved Dakota. I am filled with sadness that is unexplainable and the tears continue to roll down my cheeks. I have never loved a dog so much as I do that of Dakota. He was my first Husky baby and will forever hold a special place on my heart.

The house feels empty and is full of sadness. In time I know the sadness will lessen. I am very fortunate to have had such a great dog to share my life with. I will never forget Dakota since I have great memories that will help me get through this very sad loss. I also have many photos of Dakota that I will always cherish.

I know that Dakota is in a better place now and that he is at peace. Rest well Dakota and have fun running on the Rainbow Bridge. They say each Siberian Husky that crosses the Rainbow Bridge gets a special Silver Harness to wear. Wear yours well my best friend and someday we will meet again. I love you always.

pain beyond control
by: Mona and Ton

Had to put my 15 year old husky down and I just cannot imagine my life going on without him. I have lost other dogs but huskies have an amazing personality that cannot be matched. There is no light at the end of the tunnel for my wife and I and no human death has ever bothered me like the loss of my "Jaymo"! I have questioned my weakness and dignity in this matter but I am lucky to have a wonderful wife who is much stronger than me to help me!

Our recent loss
by: Carol S.

We have had Siberian Huskies in our lives since 1965, all of them girls and all of them wonderful. Several days ago we had to have our Winky, Siberian #6, euthanized. She would have been 15 on May 5, 2012. It broke our hearts but we were with her, holding her in our arms on the floor of our vet's office. She had a progressive neurologic illness that caused her to have difficulty walking, gave her bowel incontinence, and caused her body to waste away. We loved her dearly as we did the 5 who came before. We still have our 7 year old Siberian who seems to be doing OK. Our hearts are so broken but we know that Winky is with her siblings, jumping around and running through the snow, and enjoying the joyfulness of the Siberian.
