|Spirit(left) and a littermate at 10 days.|
I went back to visit him again at 4 weeks, 6 weeks and at 8 weeks I took him home. He was such a cute puppy.
|4 weeks-stole my heart|
|6 weeks-Spirit far right|
|Chena, who never had puppies, quickly adopted Spirit.|
|My Mom's Clumber Spaniel, Jill, found a new playmate.|
|Annie, the old black pound dog, tolerated a very playful puppy.|
|Even as a pup, Spirit loved snow.|
|Spirit always liked high places. This was on the banks at Prettyboy |
when we were having a drought and the water was low.
|In Maryland, Spirit laying on the deck, observing his world,|
and totally enjoying the snow.
|Sissy and Spirit. Sissy was an Iditarod finisher with Karen Ramstead.|
She taught Spirit to be a sled dog.
|Vocal his whole life, here he is giving me lip while I'm trying to take photos.|
|Spirit in right wheel.|
Finally figured it might be because his head was so big and
heavy that he wasn't comfortable. When he could no longer keep
up with the girls he retired. When he was younger, I did show him a
few times, but he wasn't much interested in it. We tried obedience, but
|Spirit in the show ring. Not sure where this is.|
|On the teeter-toter|
|He loved the A Frame!|
|And through the tire.|
|Spirit in Denali National Park-Polychorme Pass|
We had a lot of wonderful adventures.
|Spirit in front of Denali when he was with me at the Princess Lodge.|
|On the beach at Deep Creek State Park|
|So handsome and huggable|
|My traveling buddy|
|A typical Spirit scene. Curled up in the snow. Sometimes he'd go|
in one of the dog houses, but mostly he liked being out in the snow.
I'll miss you forever.
