RIP Koda - 15/03/2023


Recommended Posts

Cant believe Im writing another one of these. Will just copy what I wrote on FB.


15 years ago, I caved in to my wife and let her have a dog. I said I would never have a dog in the house, but I loved my parents dogs to bits, and since they were having pups, if we were going to have one, it was going to be a husky. We called him Kimba, and he changed the way we lived our lives.

A year later we got Kaiser. Another husky (his brother). Kimba needed a companion so he wasnt so needy, so that was ok. Sarah had got him before I even knew about it.

With this, we started a community of husky owners. Throughout the years we have run husky holidays where we have had from 3 to 130 huskies together at a time. We've run walks around the UK with them, got the attention of local press in various areas and more. It really did become our whole life, to the degree I now work with communities for a living. Most of the people I know, have been involved in the our community in one way or another. Whether people who like us, or people who hate us.

A year after getting kaiser, another husky, Koda, was dumped at my parents house. Having had 5 homes previously, being quite disruptive, and quite loud, we kinda got why. (He was ripping doorframes off). But he was a loving dog. After coming to our house where he was "100% not staying", I wouldn't let him leave. (As Sarah said in the first place, of course)

Getting all 3 at very similar ages was always going to come with the inevitable downside. They were all likely to go around the same time too. It was going to happen, and I knew that.

In the last 7.5 weeks, we have had to come to the terms with losing all 3 of our huskies in a very short space of time. To say it's got to us is an understatement. Broken is the only word I can find that has come close, and somehow it doesn't quite cut it.

You were my friends, and my family. Goodbye Kimba, Kaiser, and Koda.

Can not even begin to think about what you guys are going through  -   I know I am looking at the same sort of thing with my two rescues - only 6 months between them,  - although Marley has many health issues and Mikey is as fit as a butcher's dog.

Run far Kaiser,  run free.

Mark, have you ever been told that you write very well? Personally, I have re-read your story several times. Thanks for sharing. I would also like to learn how to write correctly, at a minimum. I admit, I contacted the dissertation proposal writing service I liked that they offered me a discount on my first order. It's actually tempting. But here's the main reason I chose this company: they have a rigorous selection process and only hire people with proven research experience and advanced degrees in a specific field. In addition, their staff assigned my assignments only to authors with PhD. Well, this is a responsible attitude to work.
