I can't believe that I am writing this, but there is no denying it's true. At 3:00 this afternoon, we were forced to make the heartbreaking decision to send Hoodoo across the Bridge. Well, really there was no other choice. I'd have taken it if there were.

Hoodoo had been off for a couple weeks--just not himself. He was being treated for some minor back problems. THis morning at about 2am he let out an awful yelp and I gave him some Metacam--like I always did! This morning he was breathing funny, lethargic and glassy eyed. He had been getting worse all day and at about 2, he went completely limp. My vet says he suffered a stroke. He felt no pain and left this world surrounded by the two people who love him most. His crossing was gentle, quiet and peaceful. I imagine down the road I'll find some comfort in that. It's not helping much right now.

Hoodoo was a four and a half year old, bi-eyed siberian husky. He was littermate to my Earle and sired by my Muskwa. He was also the very first dog we ever rescued. He came back to us at nine months old--untrained and out of control. He turned into one of the smartest, sweetest, most wonderful dogs I've ever known. Hoodoo was a gentle soul who loved dogs, cats, kids, people. He never met a stranger, only new friends.

I can't believe I'll never see his goofy grin, his beautiful eyes, the silly way he bounced by the fence. This place will never be the same. He has left a huge hole. Amazing how even home as filled with critters as mine is, can feel so empty when one is gone.

Goodbye, my beautiful boy. I'll love you forever.

Oh, I'm so sorry. :( He was such a handsome man-dog. I'm so glad you got him back and he had such happy years with you.

Run as fast as the wind at the Bridge Hoodoo. You were loved so much and will be missed, sweetie. :(

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Hoodoo. :( He was an absolutely gorgeous dog, I remember seeing that photo some time ago and I just fell in love with his sweet face. He was obviously very well loved. I'm sure he's happily running as fast as he can over at the Rainbow Bridge, true husky-style.

Glacier, I'm sooooo sorry for Hoodoo's passing but it looks like it was for the best. I know that it doesn't make the hurt go away but please take comfort in knowing that he is watching over you and is now happy and healthy. That's such a sweet picture of Hoodoo :) :) You were very fortunate to have him in your life for a short while. He knows you loved him and I know that he loved you just as much.

Hugs to you.

I'm so sorry to hear of dear Hoodoo's passing.
He sounds like a sweet and special boy.

I'm sure it isn't any consolation, but he is in a better place, and in no pain now, and he will be watching over you and the rest of your family.

I'm very sorry, and my prayers are with you.

But you will see him again. Don't forget that. I'm so sorry he had to leave you so young. Animals can have an amazing effect on you. They enrich our lives so much. I'm glad Hoodoo left peacfully and in time, you will find comfort in that. Being with him was special, too. He knew that you loved him.

Oh Glacier, I'm sorry I'm just now seeing this thread:(

I can't believe your ever so young and beautiful Hoodoo is gone. I can't help but have tears in my eyes as I write this:(

I'm so glad you had him in your life for the time you did, I'm sure you'd never trade those memories for anything.

Just know that he will have plenty of friends at the bridge and will never be in pain again.

R.I.P. Sweet Hoodoo

I haven't been able to read most of this thread, being that I'm doing most of my PTing at school and don't really want to cry, but, I do want you to know you're in my thoughts and Hoodoo is safe and well at the Bridge with all of his new buddies.

RIP

I visited Hoodoo's beautiful memorial page. There are just no words to describe the feelings, but my heart breaks for you.

Play hard at the Rainbow Bridge, dear handsome Hoodoo. Wait for your Mom, Dad and brothers and sisters, who will joyfully greet you again one day...:( :(
