Blanche The Beautiful Retired leader, rainbow bridge
Born: April 23, 1994
We lost our beautiful Blanche late in the fall of 2012, at the age of 17 and a half.
Blanche was a gorgeous 17 year old gal, retired for many years but was able to go for long walks until she was in her 16th year. One of my many beautiful all-white Siberians. When she arrived here at age 9 she brought so much class to our team. Most important, she really taught me what a leader could do. She was flawless, perceptive, led with confidence and grace and retired with flair. After a career of being PERFECT she suddenly started steering the team where she wanted to go…HOME! She took the shortest route home over and over again, and finally with the help of an animal communicator I got her message. She lived in the house where she received the special attention and appreciation all wonderful old sled dogs deserve.
