A few hours from the finish, Richie noticed something was off with Oshi and immediately carried her in the sled to the finish.
After the finish, the vets noticed symptoms that resulted in aspiration pneumonia, an illness that can happen very suddenly with little to no symptoms before it can have devastating or fatal effects.
She battled it for 3 days, was flown to the Anchorage pet ER where she received aggressive treatment, but unfortunately she lost her battle and passed on.
Our gofundme campaign is in honor of a warrior dog who died living her life to the fullest & having the time of her life. Her memory will carry on through the years as Wildthingz recovers from this devastating loss. Wildthingz will move forward as a staple to our great Alaskan dog mushing culture.
Financial expenses for medical treatment and memorial services are substantial. We welcome your support in honoring our beloved Oshi.
