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.
