Dapper Dan My Handsome Man - A Tribute to our old man RIP

12 years old this year he originally came to us as our only experienced sled dog he was 4 years old and already had thousands of miles on him. He was shy and afraid and food aggressive - but we made short work of those habits and he relaxed into a life of luxury while demonstrating his claim to fame as the Worlds Best Swing Dog!! His enthusiasm for running was always evident - and I'd say hands down age 10 was the peak of his spirit for running! This boy who wouldn't let us touch him for the better part of a year is one of the greatest inspirations of my time rescuing huskies. Just to watch him play with a tennis ball or wrestle with Talon as if they were puppies made my heart sing. But the best was to have him lean in to a good butt scratch ! Dapper Dan it saddens me deeply to say goodbye to you today - lay in the eternal sunshine of heaven with your old pals of yesterday until Talon and I make it there to play again ! Xxxxxooooxxxxx
