SGT. BEAR of MT ELKSTAR - aka BEARBO
Oct 20, 1992 to 29 Dec 2006
I lost my elkie, bear on 29 Dec 2006. He was 14 years, 2 months, and 9 days old. He came to me as a rescue when he was
only 1.5 yrs old. I couldn’t have asked for a better dog, loved going for rides in our 95’ Bronco. I am sure he thought
of it as his car, he was with me the day I bought it and he got to ride home in the front seat. He learned the borders of
our new house 6 years ago and patrolled them very well. The cats, raccoons and red foxes are very happy he is gone as they
now have been learning that walking thru our yard front or back is now safe. He was the best hunting dog you could ask for,
as long as you were hunting what ever he wanted to. I have missed him so much, much more lately than I thought possible.
Thank you, Michael.
My sweet boy was born in March of the year 2000, on St Patrick's Day. He came to me Memorial Day weekend and
every night slept with his head on my shoulder. He needed to be shown that he was supposed to potty outside only
twice before he started going to the door by himself the very first day he was home and he was only 10 weeks old!
I never, ever had to clean up one house training mistake during the course of his life. Very early on, it
became obvious that there was something abnormal with his kidneys and I lost my sweet , beautiful soul mate at
the age of 6 and 1/2 in Nov. of 2006. I know he is on the other side waiting for me with his elkhound siblings,
sweet Ching, and brave, beautiful Nick, running and playing with an energy his body just didn't have in this life
. I hope he and Ching and Nick, ( and his husky/chow brother)know how deeply they are missed and what joy they
brought to my life. This photo is of Sage at a little more than 1 year old.
I also wanted to put in the husky/chow's name, which was Elvis. He was Sage's lifelong companion and died the
year before. I didn't have him long enough either; he was a rescue off the street and was already around 5 years
old when he came to me. I'm so glad that Sage will have this tribute to him along with all the other beautiful
souls you have pictured on this site. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Nikita came to us after we moved away from our home town and needed some company. She was born the month we were married,
March of 1999. She had her very own unique personality that could even be difficult to live with at times. "Nikademus"
was a member of the family and was with us through many difficult times. I will always remember her for her own affectionate
ways. She is missed by every member of this family, even our other Elkhound "Iyko" who is adjusting to the change.
Nikita's life was unfortunately short, having passed away in July of 2006. We will forever be dedicated to this breed
because of the little puppy we bought after seeing her cute little black face. We love and miss out "six paws".
