NorthWapiti's Wolverine






NorthWapiti's Wolverine
August 1, 2005 - August 8, 2016

Wolvie was certainly not the next dog I expected to be writing an obituary for. But kidney failure hit my handsome boy fast, hard and unforgivingly. What a nasty bitch of a disease.

Wolvie was simply a beautiful dog - beautiful in body, beautiful in his mind, and a beautiful worker. He did his job exceedingly well, without drama or fuss. I don't ever recall raising my voice at him or having to reprimand him for anything.

In 2012 he and I road tripped together to the US Siberian Husky Nationals in Utah and had a great trip. He was a perfect roomie and took everything (other then a cool bath that he complained loudly throughout) with complete professionalism. I was so very proud of him and pleased to have him 'representing' the kennel there.

A consummate gentleman and a great friend. I can't believe he is gone.

No, no, no! Not Wolvie! I can't believe it either, Karen. So, so sorry Karen. Oh Wolverine, I know you'll be waiting at the Bridge along with your many pals. Godspeed, gorgeous boy.

So sorry to hear about Wolvie. You are right, Kidney failure is nasty and nothing to be done when it hits hard and fast. Been there. Thinking of you, hugs.

Karen, again my heart is filled with sadness at the loss of your Wolvie! I cannot believe he is gone. He is a beautiful husky and am sure a sweetheart. Thinking of you at this difficult time. Rest In Peace Wolvie. Run free and be happy.

Hugs to you,
Vickie

So sorry, Karen. No surprise Wolvie was a favorite - being an offspring of Grover and Kara. Glad we have not had to deal with kidney failure. I can't say "RIP" cause that's the last thing NW residents want to do - I'll say "Have a fun run."

I like "have a fun run" too. {{{hug}}}

You know that he knew he was loved. Another chunk of heart gone, but never forgotten. You are in my prayers. And he is waiting for you, North of the Rainbow Bridge!
