My sister Cheyenne has crossed the Bridge

Despite all the craziness around here while mama is packing for us to move and trying to sell the house, it was very important for me to sneak onto the computer today to pass on the news about my sister Cheyenne. Mama took her to get help crossing the Bridge yesterday. She growled and snapped at our human sister, who is only two years old, and the rest of us would never have dreamed of doing that! But Cheyenne was scared of everything and everyone all the time, especially our human sister. Mama was afraid she might bite her.

It really wasn't Cheyenne's fault. She was just made that way. She didn't mean to do such bad things. Mama and Daddy tried to train it out of her, and then tried to find her a new home, but it didn't work, so Mama did the nicest thing she could for her. Now Cheyenne is all fixed up, and she's gonna wait for Mama and the rest of us at the Bridge (no offense, Cheyenne, but I'm in no hurry to get there!) and watch over us until we do. Mama cried a lot yesterday. We're gonna miss Cheyenne. I even went out and helped Daddy dig her grave. Okay, well, I supervised the digging and kept Avalon busy, but that's contributing too, right?

Bye bye, Cheyenne. We're all gonna miss you lots.

I'm so sorry about Cheyenne. It was the right thing to do for your baby bi-ped. And since Cheyenne was not adoptable, you made things easier for her. I'm glad your mom was there to help her cross.

Hi Thor,
I was adopted through Mapaw back in Feb. of this year. I know how you feel about what you went through wif Cheyenne cuz my family & I have been there. My furever family thought that I would be a good companion to a 10-month old Sibe, named Gabi, that they adopted from a breeder back in Dec. when their Shanna crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Well, Gabi was afraid of everything & everybody, backslided in housebreaking, & they couldn't get her out of the diningroom where she cowered away from everyone. I tried to help, but she was just too skitzy. She knocked mommy down a few times & ran across the bed in the middle of the night & hurt her face. They made the decision to give her back to this breeder. Mommy was so upset to have to come to that decision, but she really tried with her for 6 months. She got advice from her vet & Mapaw. Just nothing worked. They found out that Gabi's parents were really brother & sister - I guess you can say that the litter was definitely an OOPS litter & poor Gabi had the bad genes & problems as a result from it. Mommy said that she will never get another doggie that has any mention of parenting from this breeder's Siberian line again. This breeder is supposed to have had a wonderful reputation with training Sibes & breeding. Not in our books though. My mommy & daddy got me my bruther, Juneau, in June so we can keep each other company.

Would you like to be blogging buddies wif us. Stop by to say hi when you can.
