Over the Rainbow Bridge
Canes Boreae Nickel ~ Vajradhara's Fuji X Howling Spirits Mulan
12/08/2006 - 04/22/2015
An exceptional Gee-Haw leader. All attitude, all heart. Sadly we lost her prematurely to apocrine adenocarcinoma and closed pyometra.
Nickel represents our primary female foundation line. She was a small, but a solid consistency type female. A good eater, a good drinker, solid feet and excellent work ethic. No, was not a word in her vocabulary. Nickel was fierce to other dogs, especially when passing, she was liable to roar at a team on the way by. As a mother, she was the kindest, most attentive brood bitch, nursing her puppies until we finally separated them at 10 weeks. Nickel even fostered a puppy that was not hers. She was a serious dog on the line, but loved to ride in the truck and loved a soft spot in the house. Her happy, can-do attitude, and presence here is greatly missed.
The last living image of Nickel and her daughter Winner playing in the yard. This photo was captured 2 days before her death, April 22nd, 2015.
