    Reading about your dog made me weep and smile.  Your story brought back memories for me.  

    We had a male Alaskan Malamute, who sounded a lot like your dog.  He was 120 lbs. then, last summer he dropped 20 lbs. in two weeks  to 100 lbs.  At first the vet thought it was sarcoma but it was Cushing's disease.  We called him our "gentle giant" and yes, he was a steak thief, too.  His nose was right at counter level.  He was also our pack's crooner.  He got the choir singing to the firetruck sirens.  I miss him so much.
