Howling in Memory of the Whistler 100 Huskies

The FiveSibes™ are joining  in The Howl Heard Around the World in memory of the Whistler 100 Huskies. Pictured at right, our Harley leads our pack in The Howl today, which marks the beginning of a three-day virtual vigil anniversary (see THE HOWL HEARD ROUND THE ROUND THE WORLD Remembering the Whistler 100 Facebook Event Page). For those not familiar with the Whistler 100, you can visit my post from March The Howl Heard Around the World. Whister 100 Sled Dogs - From a Tribute to a Cause and also visit last year's Candlelight Vigil post.

Let us all take a few minutes to honor these angel sled dogs, light a candle, and remember their lives and how in the wake of their senseless slaughter, a world joined together and demanded change so there will hopefully never be a repeat of the horrific fate those sled dogs faced. As I stated in my blog when this story first broke, the only way we can truly pay homage to them is to always remember our humanity. In the face of adversity, there is always another way. A humane way. The human way. If we lose site of that, then what is left?

Run free beyond the Rainbow Bridge, Whister 100. You will never be forgotten.

This is a blog hop. Please be sure to visit the our hosts (the first three blogs) as well as the other wonderful blogs joining today's hop.


  1. Such a sad day in our history and a terrible day for the local community here. It's good to remember them. Here in BC, we are still worrking on their legacy: better working conditions for sled dogs province wide and some of the toughest anti-cruelty laws in the country. But for those's all just too little, too late.

  2. So sad. Thanks for posting a wonderful tribute. :)

    Woofs & hugs, <3
