MAUI was my very good friend. I loved her. She was a big Malamute dog with green eyes that belonged to my friend & neighbour. Maui had cute paws as big as my hand. Sadly she passed away in November 2012. Maui always reminded me of White Fang, the heroic dog in the book of the same name by Jack London.



Your wagging tail made me glad

Your happy smile made my day

Your kind and gentle ways were always lovable

You will always be alive in our hearts


                              The noble dog will always be man’s best friend.
