Meet Gimli… Gimli truly encapsulated the spirit of the sled dog! We were told he was too small, too short and his legs were too little, so he was actually “donated” to us. However, he proved his previous owner wrong and became the emotional leader of our kennel with a heart of gold! Gimli never had a bad day! He loved everything and did everything enthusiastically, including eating! He acted like he had been shot out of a canon at all times because he had so much energy! If you would try giving him a hug, he would attempt to burrow into your body! He was so happy! He was our “RUDY” and usually ran in wheel, immediately in front of the sled, the hardest job of the team. Gimli’s bloodlines are linked to our dogs from Sweden. We think about Gimli every day and he continues to inspire us. Gimli passed away on August 17, 2018 at only six years old. His death was a huge loss to Nautique Sky Kennel.
