In Loving Memory

In working with sled dogs it is inevitable that many of them will pass away in the course of our lifetime and with each passing the loss is felt deeply.

All of these dogs have left their paw prints on our hearts and souls. They have taught us so much about the ways of their kind, allowing us to become better care givers, finely attuned to their needs through our constant interactions. Some pass away from old age, some from illness. Some stay for only a few years, while others are fortunate to share an entire lifetime here at the Sanctuary.

Through these pages of our site we are happy to share the lives of our dogs with you and in these memorials allow their beauty to live on eternally.

Even though their collars and harnesses gently hang on the wall as a reminder testament of their full life, it is in these memories of how they touched our lives that tells their true story.
