Thank you, she was a great dog, the best friend I have ever had. She was actually all Malamute, or "malo-mutt" as we affectionately called her. She was my ex-boyfriends dog, I lived with her for the last 2 yrs of her life, and I loved all 140lbs of her. She died in Oct. of 2004, I felt that loss more than any human I have known. I have another good picture of her when my son was younger, I'll post it.
Not to many people can relate to that loss, but I know exactly how you feel. When we had to put our beloved Rotty down it was the saddest moment in my life. He was only one year old, and had some kidney problems. That dog had more miles on him than most dogs have in 10 years, so I know he had a good life. I still get out of sorts when I think about him.
Here is my boy's memorial.
