Dr. Misha Meepenstein. 1999 - May 17, 2012

He was my first Siberian Husky. He taught me a lot. He was the snuggliest, kissiest, and most likely to escape of my pack.

But bodies wear out. And over the past couple months Meepie has gotten to be an old dog. And today we made our final trip together.

Back in May of 2000 I decided that I wanted to get a second dog so that my Lex wouldn't be alone when I wasn't home. I went to the humane society to find a female friend. But none of the females appealed to me. Then I went down the male side of the building and saw Cochise. He did appeal to me very much! I brought Lex out to meet him and they got along. A couple days later Cochise went home with me to begin being Misha. He quickly let Lex know that he would be the alpha. Fortunately Lex was fine with that.

I'm not sure when the Meepenstein was added. I think I nicknamed him Meepie shortly after he moved in. A friend expanded the nickname to what became his last name of Meepenstein.

The Doctor part was added after Turbo came to our house. When Tubey was a puppy, he had a tooth that didn't want to fall out. The Meep pinned him down and worked on it until the tooth came out.

Meeps & I had a lot of good adventures in our time. I hope that he and Fargo are having fun now on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

I love you, Meeps! I'll miss your MeepieKisses & wonderful singing voice.
