Well, this is a really really sad day for us at Northwood that I must report our only male Akita, Dodger, who reached the age of 11, passed away today, January 21, 2018 at approximately noon Eastern Standard time,
He passed on after a week long battle with a mystery illness. Every effort was made to determine what was the root cause, but we and the vets could ascertain that in time to save him. Treatment theories and methods were in vain. He died in my arms.
Dogs in our family are just that, they are extensions of our human family. He was one of my very best friends ever.
Rest in Peace Dodger, we love you forever.
Years ago I started a blog and quickly discovered that I didnt have that much to write about, so I made it read as if Dodger was posting the news... silly, but it is a fun chronicle of his life. We have had many dogs, and still have three as of this passing, its never easy, usually its the final ride that takes them, today, we did not beat him to it, it was very sad.

We are crushed.
