This page is dedicated to our dogs who have crossed the rainbow bridge
Natika born 4-10-01
aka Tiki Bear
Bear became a part of our family after we tragically lost our first Siberian when she was only 10 months, without her it would have been so much harder for us to cope after losing Mishka. Bear was a treasure her clownish antics could always put a smile on our faces no matter what!!
She loved her visits to the old people’s home where she’d perform all her tricks and cheer up the resident’s day. She loved all the attention & cuddles but most of all the caramel tarts the residents would share with her at morning tea time.
Bear was a great talker we always knew when one of our other dogs were doing something bear considered naughty when she talked a certain way, one of those times we went out to find Shakira fighting a 5 foot red bellied black snake. So we’ll miss our little dobber alerting us to problems out in the yard.
Bear was never a show dog but a much loved family pet; she is immortalized in our Articpower logo playing with diesel.
Bear had been unwell for many years fighting a few diseases over the past few weeks she’d been in a lot of pain and her quality of life had decreased tremendously so it was time for us to say goodbye.
Run free of pain our gorgeous girl we miss you so much, you’ll remain in our heart forever we were so blessed to have you in our family for 8 years. We have so many amazing memories of you we’ll never forget our sweet blue eyed girl.
Our little Angel (from our wiggle/sniper litter)
We had you for only 2 days but we loved every second we shared with you. He is our little speck in the northern lights .Run free little man.
Trueartic Bedazzled "Shakira" 28/9/2002 to 16/4/2015
Aust Ch Trueartic Vin Diesel 22/9/02 27/7/2015
Diesel came to live with us for some socialization in 2003 when he was just 4 months old he wasn't a dog with any confidence not only did we fall in love with him very quickly he taught us so much. And we so lucky to have him for almost 13 years he would have turned 13 in September. Diesel was a fantastic show dog he'd been blessed with breathtaking effortless movement , he covered the ground with great ease Diesel loved to strut his stuff with Pete they were like poetry in motion! Diesel had some huge wins in the show ring 5 best in group, runner up best in group 14 classes in group 1 Australian Bred in show, also placing in his class at the championship show & spring fair shows he was retired on 512 points. Diesel also loved to run in harness
Diesel had a very loving & gentle temperament & big brown eyes that just melt your heart!

We had planned to take him to dinner plain for one last holiday but it wasn't meant to be. Run free Diesel dog you will be greatly missed
Shakira & Diesel are half brother & sister they are now running together once again over the rainbow bridge
If tears were a staircase & memories a lane we'd walk right up to heaven & bring you back again
Our beautiful Mishka she was our first husky Sadly she was with us for such a short time. Everyone who met her loved her straight away she had a beautiful spirit. Because she was our first husky it broke our hearts that she had to leave us at just 10 months of age. She had a rare & aggressive form of leukemia.
We were lucky with Mishka she was one of few huskies who could be trusted to be leash free!!
Shakira was added to our family Christmas of 2002
Shakira had a limited show career she really didn't enjoy it so we retired her on 62 points with some classes in groups & placing at the Royal Easter show & specialty shows. Shakira really proved to be a great producer for us. Shakira was the best mum you could ever hope for, she really was in her element when she had her babies & raised some gorgeous articpower puppies, she's our foundation bitch here at Articpower
She had 2 litters, her first litter to Gr Ch Thundova Myschk they really complemented each other and gave us 4 glorious girls.
We kept our beautiful girl wiggle from this litter.
Shakira had very few health problems throughout her life and succumbed to arthritis April 2015, it was a very hard saying goodbye to our gorgeous brown eyed girl!
