You died without much warning, although maybe we missed the signs,
you are missed and loved,
till we meet on the bridge. Goodbye 'ole friend.

ESKAMERE YARLA BARBELKA
14/3/1992 - 1/11/2005
Today to preserve dignity and avoid suffering we said goodbye to 'Elka' at 13 years 7 1/2 months of age. Foundation of my
Barbelka family of Norwegian Elkhounds.
Eskamere Yarla at Barbelka was bred by the late Ann Heward and Hans Wreschner and was by Eskamere Solo at Ravenstone x
Go say hello to Ann.
BARBELKA NORWEGIAN ELKHOUNDS
PAJEROWSKI'S CORDIAL BRANDY
12/14/1993 - 10/17/2005
Brandy was my first elkhound and my first dog as an adult. She definitely kept me on my toes when she was younger
since she was a hunter, an escape artist, a barker and a chewer. She was also the sweetest little girl that anyone could
ask for and was a great communicator. She had different sounds for everything and over time I learned what each little
noise meant so I didn't even have to look at her to know what she wanted. Up until her last few weeks she was still very
happy and energetic and for that I am so thankful. She will be greatly missed.

"I still remember getting a call from her breeder that the puppies were
coming and did I want to come and watch them being born. I don’t
remember the drive there but I do remember holding a freshly born puppy
all slick and squirmy and I was in love. Tasha taught me so much about
dogs in general and elkhounds in particular. I bought her as a pet
puppy and we started in obedience then agility. We even tried herding
and tracking. But her favorite activity was meeting people. She loved
when we had booths at festivals and shows because she could go around
and kiss all the kids and smooze with their parents. In the end old age
caught up with her and I had to hold her and let her go. The day she
left she took a piece of my heart with her. May she be comfortable and
happy at the Rainbow Bridge.
Love always, Kris"

Misha was the sweetest most gentle natured dog I have ever had. He loved everyone and everything. He easily made
friends with other dogs, as well as horses, goats and all other animals. His curious beautiful brown eyes are still so
vivid in my mind and heart. When living in Connecticut and Virginia he loved hiking with us and plopping down in a nice
cold stream in the winter. He had his weak moments of chewing up a couch or two and garbage can diving, even if it was
just to tear up tissues.....oh yeah, and that feather pillow. That was great fun for him! But, all in all, I could never
have asked for a better friend and constant companion. When we lost him, he took a piece of my heart with him. I dearly
love him and sorely miss all the silly things that he loved to do. I live in Florida now, which is just too hot for his
breed. If I ever move north again, I would love to have another Norwegian Elkhound. My Misha Moo is never far from my
mind and through the hundreds of pictures and videos taken of him, he will never be forgotten. Bye baby dog.
Cyndi, Chris and brother Rudy Husky Dog.
Sheena was born 26 June 2000. She would have been have been five years old on the 26th of this June. I went on
vaction and was called home due to her death. Sheena was the love of my life. She was a wonderfull girl
and the best friend I could have ever asked for. She carried my heart with her when she passed and will be
remembered by all with love and affection. I miss her with every fiber of my being and pray she is happy and healthy

CAN INT CH LENANS BALDER JARL AV KIVA
5/10/88 - 5/10/05
Noble, proud, courageous, supremely confident and strong willed. Much loved and forever loving and devoted companion.
His happy nature was seen in his constantly wagging tail and his intelligence in his bright, mischievous eyes. Time
and again over the past year and a half his indomitable spirit defeated the ravages of old age. Balder, which in old Norse
means “prince,” was the fairest and most beloved of the gods. Jarl, which in old Norse means “noble,” was the father
of the noble race of men including kings. Buddy in contemporary English means “good friend.” He truly lived up to all of
these. Farewell and rest in peace dear friend. I miss you terribly.
11 year old German Shepherd dearly loved by Steve, Shannon, Jan, Rich & Sean and best friends Taz
(Elkhound) and Gabby (mixed). He will always be remembered.
He went to Rainbow Bridge on June 4th.
TWINPINES-NORMARK IVY LEAGUE
2-15-03 - 2-10-05
Owned by: Cynthia Kinser & Diane Coleman
Bred by: Virginia Curtner & Diane Coleman
To say that Ivy was a character, was putting it mildly. She had a way of getting into the
hearts and under the skin of everyone she met.
She had a short but promising show career.
But most of all she was IVY.
Due to tragic circumstances, she left us way too soon. She will be sadly missed by her family,
both canine and human.
Many thanks to Virginia Curtner and Diane Coleman, for allowing me
to share in this girl's life.

"I got Kvass when he was 9 weeks old. He was a real cutey. My first show
dog. Learned to show with him, but we never did much. He did not like
to go in the ring. So he was retired and became the guardian at the
house. Anyone who would have tried to come in with him in here would
have been in big trouble. He was having small strokes, and was becoming
very disoriented. The time finally came today.......and he joined his old buddy,
Rambo. He will be missed very, very much.
Jo, Harold, PJ and Radar."
4-30-1988 to 11-30-2004
Assisted to the Bridge at 16 years and 7 months
"He was the dearest old dog you could ever want. Always happy and
friendly. Seemed to love everybody. He and his sister Gretchen came to
live with us when they were 9-10 months old. Both settled right in and
this became their home. He did rather like to chew on occasion, several
books, and one of my new sneakers. But other than that, he was just a
loving companion. He will be very much missed. His age just caught up
with him and we had no choice but to send him to the bridge to be with
his sister. Just before the end, he held his head and ears up like he
was seeing someone. I like to think it was Gretchen. You certainly
will be missed, old man. Till we meet again..........
Jo, Harold, Kvass, PJ and Radar
