Unfortunately, Anika passed away after a long illness at the ripe old age of 16 ½ years. Anika was a precious little girl, who was very faithful and loving and who I loved very much. Since 1997 I have rescued many Siberian Huskies. These beautiful creatures are such faithful companions and give back as much love as I give them, if not more. Bailey is a lovely Retriever who has become a very faithful companion and follows me wherever I go. Blusie is now 5years old and Bailey is 8 years old.
