|Hero, a forever symbol of hope & awareness.|
Alley, of Alley's Rescued Angels, you are wonderful for all that you did as his guardian. Hero was lucky you found him. For your vet team, Siberian Nation, and all the champions of Hero - you are all so caring and compassionate. This little boy will always be our symbol and we will carry on his legacy, which is quite a big one - this little pup brought together an entire pet community worldwide for a greater cause - to help an ailing Husky pup with sharing, caring, and donations for medical care (the CHIP-IN is still in effect to help Alley's Rescued Angels with the balance of surgical bill and emergency procedures during surgery. Please keep the link active on your sites to help).
Facebook and Twitter were aflutter today with updates and statuses from Alley of Alley's Rescued Siberian Angels as she received news from the surgical team. Well wishes, prayers, positive thoughts, and photos of furpals flooded in from across the globe as Hero went in for surgery, where his heart stopped, he received emergency CPR and was placed on life support. Then he began having bleeding. The surgical team went back in to find the cause...but the fight took it's toll on the nine week old puppy who fought hard to the very end.
We can not let his story end and should not let his brief life be in vain. We will keep Hero alive as a symbol of heroism and hope...and his legacy will continue as we continue to carry the torch for seizure awareness. This we can all do in Hero's memory. When we see his photo, we can all be proud of how we joined together in support of this pup and Alley, his guardian. When we see his photo, smile, whisper his name, and then give our own furbabies and extra "Hero" hug. Please remember to mark your calendars on Valentine's Day, as Siberian Nation has proclaimed it "Hero Day." While we shed our tears, let us never forget Hero's legacy - a story of how an abandoned little Husky pup with special needs brought together an entire global pet community for the greater good of an animal. That's quite a big legacy for a little boy.
Rest in peace, sweet little furangel Hero. You've earned your wings.
The time comes. A Siberian Husky lifts up its head. There is an untested adventure beyond. Time to go.
Across the Rainbow Bridge is a place for all dogs. A river runs wide and shallow with tennis balls that fly with their own wings; that is the place for a Labrador or Golden to await its master's arrival.
The Siberian is not content here. Northward is its trail....
There are soft pastures for Aussies and Border Collies, with sheep and geese to pen. Agility equipment grows like trees amid Frisbees and flyball.
But the North continues its sure wild call, and the Siberian's journey continues....
Now the air is colder. Now the moon is always full. Now the light is silver and it breaks and shimmers on fields of bright snow. Now there are no roads, no walls, no pens, just endless space to run. This is where Siberians gather, North of the Rainbow Bridge.
They wait in this beautiful place, happy, but not complete. Suddenly, a howl begins, as one dog senses someone coming, someone very special. All the Siberians raise their heads and join in the ancient chorus. They dance like moonbeams and sing like winter winds.
There are red ones like dawn streaks, black ones splattered with many colors and silver ones like the first strange hour before light. They line up as if in harness and run together, in a scintillating, many-colored streak. The leader of the team guides the others past the fields and river, with racing feet and racing heart. They rush to greet the new arrival at the Rainbow Bridge, where the leader is rejoined with its beloved person, never to be parted again.
The glory of the reunion is celebrated by all the Siberians dwelling beyond the Bridge, a glimmering, multicolored team leaping and whirling with joy. The light from that scene is what we see on magical evenings in the northernmost parts of this Earth: The Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights beyond the Rainbow Bridge.
