    Today Spud would have been 14 if he were still with us. He died of kidney failure 1 1/2 years ago. This photo was taken in March 1994 after a two day snowstorm dumped about 9 feet of new snow on us.

  2. Hey Steve he looks like a great companion who was lucky enough to spend his life with you and I'm sure he will live on in your memories and pictures.
    I lost a cat earlier this year, I held her in the palm of my hand when she was a kitten while her eyes were still shut, 17 years later I held her in my arms as the vet put her to sleep - old age got the better of her and I wasn't prepared to see her suffer, I cried my eyes out!
    To some people the animals we look after are nothing but pets - in reality they are a very big part of our family and our lives.
    Happy birthday Spud.
    All the best

    Thanks Daren. He was a good dog, pulled my wife for thousands of miles of ski-jouring. He now rests on a hill overlooking a lake with a beaver lodge just below him, a place we used to walk frequently. We now have a new sled dog Lucy, who at 18 months is a bundle of energy that's sometimes difficult to handle.
