We are sad to share the passing of Gabe(Gabriel), Quinault's Guardian Angel, CGC, WTD, WPD, WWPD, my first malamute and patriarch of our kennel. Gabe passed at 12-1/2, giving his opinion and keeping the kennel kids in line up to the last moment we had to let him go. What a bittersweet day, we got the call for Finn's G4 (our first kennel Group) on the way home from letting Gabe go. It was a few days before we could truly celebrate; and we figure Finny did it for his great-great-uncle Gabe. Gabe taught me how deeply I loved this breed, and all that they can do. Gabe had more heart than any dog I have met before or since, he even pulled a full size motorhome 5 feet by pulling on the tie-out when he saw a deer he felt he needed to go visit! He was also an apple-picker-extraordinaire, would even pull them down for the other dogs before eating his own. He did everything I asked of him, and more than I knew I even had the right to ask. Godspeed, my sweet boy, you took a piece of my heart and soul with you when you went, but I know you're running free and happy, bossing everyone around on the silver-harness team to keep things in order, and I hold you in my heart until we'll meet again.
