June 27, 2006 The Norse Gods and Goddesses

Anyone that has ever been around me for any length of time knows how much I adore our 'Norse Gods and Goddess' litter. I honestly believe they are one of the most accomplished litters in the history of the breed. Beautiful, talented and intelligent - I believe each and every one of them to be a credit to the breed (and I don't use those words lightly). Mark and I are exceptionally proud to have bred and raised this litter - and very grateful to have them as a part of our lives.

Today is one month short of their 7th birthday, a day that should be one to celebrate them - but unfortunately, any celebration has been clouded by the passing of one of the litter on Sunday.

Ch. NorthWapiti's Freya WD, CGN suddenly, and, as of yet, for unexplained reasons passed away on Sunday night. Her death was very unexpected to all those that knew her, especially since she was playing with her children very shortly before collapsing and being rushed to the vet.

We know that everyone involved did all they could to save Freya, but it just was not to be.

Our deepest condolences go out to Freya's owner for the last 2 1/2 years, Brenda Potter. We completely understand how devastated she is by this loss. We are extremely grateful to Brenda for the fantastic home she gave Freya for the time she had her. She was a lucky and spoiled Siberian - as was fitting for a Goddess.

I think Freya's death especially hits home because I've always thought of this litter as being rather immortal, as are the Gods and Goddess they were named for. Just goes to show that wishing cannot always make something so.
