In Memory of Stryker the Wolf Dog and the Oregon Coast

Posted by Cindy / July 11, 2011

Stryker was a 4 year old Wolf/Husky who needed someone to love him. My daughter needed a soul mate and there came this glorious wolf/dog who understood her.  He loved to stand in the rain and let it mist on his beautiful coat with his nose to the sky.

This photo was taken on the last month of his life. We drove an hour to the ocean to Lincoln City. He was sick – but even then he was a magnificent looking animal. He laid down on the beach, and this horse and rider went by. I was fortunate enough to get this photo. What a memory! I have other photos of him in the car, smiling on the way to the ocean. The day we took him to the ocean, his last ride, he was so happy! He was magnificent and a wonder family member, a wolf/dog! And this picture remains as a favorite memory for several of us in the family… Even He, loved to go to the ocean. So many dogs do!

    A very beautiful dog and story. It touched my heart. My wife and I will be moving to the Newport, Lincoln City area in November or December. We will be bringing our beloved boxer Spike – he is around 10 years old. We want him to spend his last years on the beautiful Oregon coast with us.
