November 5, 1997 - December 27, 2010
Draco had been doing wonderfully and really not showing his age at all until a few weeks ago when he started being a bit of a picky eater. In a blink of an eye it went to him totally refusing food. A trip to the vet basically confirmed that he was likely battling cancer. We tried some meds and moving him into the house but by yesterday he was making his wishes clear.
He was a big and beautiful boy. A force in harness, successful in the show ring and just a pleasure to have around.
His daughters Rocket, Bang and Bingo are some of the most significant leaders in the yard right now.
I'm still coming to grips with the thought of him being old. The thought of him being 'gone' is simply inconceivable.
My friend Jackie has told me many times that Draco and his brother, Orion were for her, the embodiment of a 'NorthWapiti' dog. That was/is okay by me - he was a wonderful Siberian in body, spirit and soul.
Goodbye Crazy Whiskers. I hope you know how much you were loved.
