Carmack's Wifi of NorthWapiti




Carmack's Wifi of NorthWapiti
'Wifi'
August 18, 2006 - December 10, 2014


It has taken me so long to post about Wifi because even after 2 1/2 months, the events of that day are too overwhelming, and I consider it one of the worst days of my life.

An hour after the picture above was taken, Wifi died while in harness.  Despite extensive testing by our vet and consulting with sled dog vets, there is no explanation of why he died, and there are no detectable issues that the owners of his relatives should be concerned about.

I have always been a pretty open book when it comes to the comings and goings of the kennel - but there are some things and some days that are so close to me, that I keep them private.  This is one of them.

His breeder, Kathy Copeland, commented after being notified of his passing that he had to work very hard for a piece of my heart. He did - and like most things he worked hard at - he succeeded. I adored him.

A good piece of my heart went with him that day.

I am so glad you have that beautiful picture of him, and so sorry that he died that day. We all enjoyed the tidbits of his life you shared with pictures and in the blogs, hence we share your sorrow.

So very sorry for this loss. Sounds like this one was doubly hard for you. I cannot imagine how hard the circumstances of his passing were. Try to hold the photo above of him in your heart he looks happy there.
