Tuktoyaktuk

In Loving Memory of Claire’s “Tuktoyaktuk”


How do you describe your heart breaking into a million pieces, while at the same time knowing you’ve fought the best fight and that grief is an indication of the deep love you were gifted? 

Today, I said goodbye to the best dog. Tuktoyaktuk was one of a kind, yet everywhere. He brought so much joy to so many, had tons of friends (both canine and human), was a great adventurer, companion, and confidant. 

His cancer came back quickly, and with a vengance, and after trying everything we could to ease his pain, with the help of our beloved @TofinoVetClinic he passed quietly and comfortably in the place where it all began 9 years ago: our little cabin in the woods. 

Shortly thereafter, an eagle hovered over the trees in front of the cabin, as if waiting to show his spirit where to go next. It was a beautiful day, and a friend on the sea sent me a picture of a rainless rainbow over Clayoquot Sound. 

Thank you for 9 years of love Tuktoyaktuk. The Universe knows you, and welcomes you . . . you will be missed 💕
