Happy Christmas Eve to everyone! Today is also my gotcha day. That's right, 4 years ago today mom, dad and cousin Tracy (our puppy sitter when the humans are gone) were driving on their way back from seeing dad's family, when mom spotted what she "thought" was a Siberian Husky in a cornfield. Of course, mom whipped the car around, then got out to call to the dog she saw. When I saw her, I went running happily to her! I was sooo happy to have someone notice me! I immediately dropped, and rolled onto my back to give her my tummy to rub. She seemed quite surprised by how big I was cuz I remember her saying "Ohhh, you're not a Husky, you're a MALAMUTE!" I think it was my big feet that gave me away.
Here are a couple pictures of me from only 3 days after I got here. Notice how skinny I was. The vet told mom that I had a tapeworm, so if she hadn't rescued me, I would have died.
Needless to say, I'm not starving anymore.
I am so happy to have my family. Both human, and canine. There are many pups out there who are not so lucky. Please, remember to think of them this holiday season, and hope they can get as lucky as I have and find their loving furever homes too.
It has been a hard year on so many of my doggie friends families. Many have gone to the Rainbow Bridge, including my own baby, Khady's, grandma Penny. She passed away in the arms of her family just yesterday. We are all heartbroken for Penny's family. She was taken much too quickly, and at such a young age, too. Godspeed pretty Penny. May you shine as brightly at the Bridge as you did in the show ring.
So, to every human out there who is reading this with your pups, kitties, hamsterriers, etc., hug your fur babies tight, and light a candle for all those who are no longer with us this Christmas.
We are keeping all our paws crossed for a much better new year.
Mom got her Christmas present early. She's always wanted to get a tattoo of all her fur babies as a way to keep us all "with her" forever. Well, she finally decided to go for it!
This is her tattoo of Abby. It's on the outside of her right leg.
Here is the picture that was her inspiration.
I think her tattoo guy did a pretty good job! And, mom absolutely LOVES it!
Wonder when she'll get to my picture? I heard her mention a certain droopy-eared, whiny, freaky boy was next. I wonder if his pic will be pre or post droop?
PeeEss: Please take a minute to stop by Khady's "twin", Jack, of Cybersibes blog. He lost his new sister Tori on Friday. She had only been with them for about a month, and was still just a young girl. The heavens now have a new shining star, and Sherman has his sister with him at the Bridge. Godspeed beautiful Tori.
I wonder if someone would hire me to skhwish Michael Vick?
Did you happen to notice Khady and Samuel's magic trick? Khady ran behind the shed, but then it was SAMUEL who appeared from around the back corner! (That happened right before I did my new linebacker body-slam thing to Sam and Monty) You can watch the video again if you missed it the first time.
Anyway,someone's gotta keep these out-of-control kids under control here! Might as well be me!
Hey every buddy! Khady Lynn here. My new friend Ruby Blue from Iowa visited us again this weekend. We had sooo much fun! I really like it when she visits.
Here is one of our play sessions.
Holly was even nice enough to show her how to do some digging.
Mom and dad also took us for a great walk on Saturday afternoon. There were sooo many fun things to sniff! We even got to see some deer, but mom didn't have the camera ready when we saw them cuz they are really fast.
Here we are way down in the brush by the lake checking out the deer trails. There was a lot of fun sniffing and playing going on there!
As you can see, Ruby really blends in with the tall grass! It was really tall and thick. Mom was having a hard time keeping up with us. She doesn't have a very good "Husky leap" to get through the deep grass like we do!
We had a long day of bitey face, chase, and general playing. Holly really tried her best to referee us, too. But, we really didn't listen very well, cuz as soon as she would walk away from us, we would go right back at it! Hey! We're puppies! It's what we do!!!
After the long day, little Miss Ruby Blue was a bit tuckered out. I was nice enough to let her have my couch to sleep on.
Oh yeah, and Holly was nice enough to let her have her big doggie bed to lay on, too. (check out that huzzy pose! She's quite an early learner at only 4 month's of age!)
Then she decided the couch and pillow were much more comfy.
We had a really good time! I'm glad she came to see me again cuz it's nice to have some pup closer to my age to play chase and bitey face with. Not that Holly and Samuel aren't fun, but it's just different with the "older" dogs.
I was pretty worn out after our busy day, too. Only, I had a better pillow and snuggly spot for MY nap!
Can you tell what I'm napping on?
How about now?
Hawoowoowoo!! It was Samuel!!! What a nice big brother he is to let me sleep on his feety feet and snuggle with him. I thought that was very nice of him!
Well, I hope you enjoyed Miss Ruby Blue's visit with us. I know her Iowa Crew and Summiiisure are glad to have a RB free weekend so they can get some rest!!! Especially since it's Kaynh's birthday! This was a special treat for him not to have Ruby there trying to play bitey face with him. Happy birthday Kaynher!!!!! I hope you also got some livergreat and whip!!
