These are my babies, Mischa (L) and Klinket (R). They are full-blooded Alaskan Malamutes. Mischa is definitely the Alpha male and wants to be the ruler of the roost, always into something! Klinket is so laid back and gentle, happy just to be in your presence. They are now just under one year old. Unfortunately, I had to say goodbye to my babies yesterday afternoon.
Alaskan Malamutes are very energetic dogs who need a lot of attention and exercise. Because of some health issues, I can no longer take care of them as I should. Therefore, I knew the only answer was to find them a new family. After an extensive search and a lot of heartache and second-guessing myself, I finally found someone who is willing to take them in and give them a home together. They will have a new family of young adults and children.
I am so happy for my babies. This is exactly what they need. I know they will be happy, but it still hurts to see them go! I visited them yesterday afternoon at the kennels and spent about an hour playing and saying goodbye. It was a bittersweet afternoon, indeed!
Goodbye my babies. Have a wonderful life. I will always remember you and the joy and love you gave to me and Terry. I will always love you. You stole my heart the minute I saw you. A piece of me goes with you. Enjoy your new family and be happy!
