On November 29, 1998 our beloved Chakka (Aniak's
Spirit of the North) passed away, still short of his third birthday
and just as the world was beginning to see what a wonderful
Siberian he was. In six short months, he received multiple Best
In Show awards and was named the #1 Siberian Husky, #1 of Group
5, and #10 All Breed in Brazil for 1998.
"Chakka, in April of 1998 you went from never
having been in the show ring to being the 10th Best Dog in all
of Brazil by November. You accomplished so much in such a short
time. We are so proud of you. You were loved and cherished by
us. Our hearts are truly broken and, even now, the tears flow
so easily. Chakka, wait at the Bridge for us and we will see
each other again..."
