Ch. Chuchinka's Nicolai 2nd

Ch. Chuchinka's Nicolai 2nd
October 3, 1997 - February 8, 2011

"And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance
- Garth Brooks "The Dance"

Thanks for the dance Nik.

So sorry for your loss. But what you wrote is true. There is a reason we do not need to know the future. We'd be too afraid to move.

Handsome, bi-eyed Nik--You will be remembered as a champion and member of the team that got Karen to her first Iditarod finish.

You all have my deepest sympathy. it's a sad twist of fate that our dogs are destined to leave this plane of existence before us, yet solice in knowing that when our own time comes, our dogs will be there to greet us.

What a lovely dog....

...and a heartfelt song all of us sing at some time...

(...my first Siberian (a rescue) was a bi-eyed girl named Nikki....)

Dear Lady,

Hubby and I very recently (2/3/2011) lost our Sib to cancer. My heart is so broken. I can totaly relate to what you are going through.
May Nic and Denali frolic in the heavens above and wait for us to join them. We will have the best greeting known to mankind. Yodeling will be the communication method and I will be able to understand what she says.
