In October of 2000 we lost our beloved Siberian Husky "Sugarbear" to cancer. She was 13 years old. We still had our old Husky "Blue" who was 19 years old at the time (yes, some Huskies do live that long) and we lost "Blue" Dec 6, 2001. Our house was so empty and our grief was enormous, having had dogs all those years. I found the "Adopt a Husky" site, as I knew someday we would have another Husky. These dogs are very addictive and once you have a Husky... you are a "Husky Person" for life.
Long story short....Peggy put me in touch with Foster-Daddy Robert and we made a appointment for the next day, for me to come to Robert's house to look at all his Foster kids. All the way to Robert's house I kept saying to myself: I'm not ready, I'm just going to look, not ready, not ready, not ready.......... Well...I took one look at "Chance" and let him give me kisses all over my face.....and the rest is history.
Chance came to our house on Dec.29, 2001 and we officially adopted him on Jan.4th 2002. Chance made himself at home right away and became MY DOG, he adopted me right from the start and I just love it. Chance had some huge shoes to fill and he measured up to it in every aspect. When our "Sugarbear" died, I lost my walking companion, as I walk 3 miles every morning. With a little training... Chance and I now walk not only in the morning, but we walk 3 more miles in the afternoon. We have four grandchildren that visit often and Chance just loves playing with all of them. He is particularly fond of Kori, our 5 year old granddaughter who is in love with Chance and is over here to play with him all the time. The pictures are of Chance and Kori as they sleep together, romp, eat and play, as one.
Thank you so much for giving us Chance, as he brought back so much joy and happiness to our lives. Thank you and God bless you and your wonderful organization. Peggy you are the greatest, and Robert....what can I say.....you gave Chance to me with a heavy heart, but you knew... Chance will have a "FOREVER HOME" with us.
Our deepest gratitude to all of you, Jutta and Jerry Cunningham
