P.J. - Nakiska's Dark Magician- was the most amazing animal I've ever known. His shear size - 170 lbs. - was a sight to behold when he lumbered past. Even horses thought he was a bear. He didn't know how big he was but he was still soooo gentle! 'Noble' is the best word to describe him. A noble beast. Even when he was suffering terribly, he cooperated with our efforts to save him. He completely trusted his people and we were honored to hold that trust. P.J. died from complications of a battle with a drug-resistant staph infection. PJ, letting you go was the hardest thing we've ever done. We miss you desperately.

Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferocity,
and all the Virtues of Man,
without his Vices.
