My Love, My Motivation, My Inspiration


      Skudder's story all started on April 17th 2007 when I nearly ran this little unwanted stray over.  My heart jumped out of my chest as we got out of the car hoping for the best.  At first glance I thought it was a cat, but soon realized it was a fuzzy little puppy.  “That is a cute little skudder!” popped out of my mouth as he turned his baby blues up at me.  From that second I was hooked and brought him home with me.  Skudder easily and quickly became my baby.  He was my first little boy.  He was such a big part of my life that he was in the slide show of my wedding and went everywhere with me.

      He burrowed his wildly tame ways into my heart and I never wanted to see him go, but just shy of 8 years he became very ill.  In a span of 10 days I rushed him to half a dozen vet visits, cooked food specifically for him, and checking on him night and day clinging onto any glimpse of hope he would pull through, but devestatingly he didn't.  On March 9th, 2014 I lost my baby boy.  I was inside preparing his chicken and by the time I got out there it was too late. I heard the last breathe of air escape his lungs as he left this world.  I held him in my arms and cried as Nubby, Skudder's nemesis, came over whimpering.   He tried waking Skudder up by nudging him and eventually leaned onto my shoulder and grieved with me.

    Some weeks later I started searching for husky breeders in my area.  Initially, it was for research for whenever I decided to get another husky, but then saw the cutest snowball ever and it was over.  I felt as if he picked me and right then and there my dream came to life.  This little furball would never replace my Skudder, but he helped fill the void that he left and til this day I see a little bit of Skudder in all my huskies.  I love you, Skudder, and in memory of you I hope to help fill the voids of others who are without the blessings and love a Siberian Husky brings.
