life was changed forever with a temporary
arrangement for spending a Christmas holiday
with Kloshe at the Bond’s.
This visit was to thin the dog list
traveling to Jacolyn’s family holiday
It was readily noticeable that
Skookum (her new name meaning energetic,
vital and strong from the Pacific Northwest
Jargon) belonged with Kloshe. These two were
the best of buddies, enjoying daily crazy
playtimes, long travel adventures, camping
in the VW camper across the continent, and
shared digging expeditions.
When a slipped disc paralyzed Skooky
and ultimately caused a bladder infection to
run rampant, there was no way to prevent her
life from ending at age five. Skooky’s
passing left a huge void in Kloshe’s and
her family’s life.
