So many changes since I last posted SIX years ago.

We lost Samuel on November 4, 2013 and Monty on January 14, 2014.

We "foster failed" four more times with

Timber (2013)

Suka (2014)

 Chopper (2016)

and Captain Hook (2017)

All from Taysia Blue Husky and Malamute Rescue.

And, then we suffered with multiple losses once again.  First, we lost our dear Timber when he unexpectedly collapsed on Aug. 17, 2018 to what the ER vet said most likely some form of cancer. We are not sure how old he was, but probably around 11 or 12. Then, my heart was crushed beyond words when we lost Khady on Nov. 4, 2018, to a ruptured tumor on her spleen caused by hemangiosarcoma. She was only 10. The exact same thing had taken her sister, Cornelia Marie in 2017.  And then, on April 6, 2019 we lost our sweet, gentle Chopper to liver cancer.  All three were completely unexpected, undiagnosed, out of nowhere, and absolutely crushing.

So, for the first time since we lost Holly, Samuel and Monty all in less than a year, we are down to just four dogs. Lena (13ish), Titus (12ish), Suka (7) and Captain Hook (7).  Other than Captain, who has a whole slew of medical issues (Eosinophilic Bronchopneumopathy with an MRSP (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus pseudintermedius) infection, Eosinophilic Rhinitis, chronic allergies and Diabetes) everyone else is doing great.

We are still volunteering and fostering for Taysia Blue and love being able to help so many needy Sibes and Malamutes!  It's one of the things in my life that helps keep me sane!

This picture was taken only four days before we lost Chopper.  Left to right, Suka (couch), Lena, Titus (red), Captain (above Titus), and Chopper.

Take care everyone!

Happy Friday everybuddy!

We finally had some warm, sunny weather yesterday, so we were all wound up.  And, unfortunately, Titus got to be the receiver of a good dose of Siberian Smackdown!

Even the old boys, Samuel and Monty, tried to get involved!  Lena and I just LOVE playing tag team on Titus!

Hey, there may be more boys than girls in this house now, but the girls still RULE!!!

Happy weekend!

I'M 5!!!

Today is my birthday!  I'm 5 years old!  I'm really quite a grown up lady, but hu-mom still insists on calling me her "baby".   I guess it's just a mom thing, especially since she still calls Samuel her "baby boy" and he's ancient!

Anyway, back to me!  Here is a brief look at how much I have grown and matured over the past five years.

Here I am with my mom, Gloria, and my siblings.  Me and my sisters Lily Dawn and Hilde were the black and white pups.  Unfortunately, my sister Hilde passed away not long after this.  The light red pup on the left is my brother Shinzou (originally Jonathan), and the dark red pup is my sister Cornelia Marie.  We were the "Deadliest Catch" crew, and all named after the show.  My "registered" name is D'Azul's Northwestern, and I was originally called Skipper, after Captain Sig Hanson. 

Look at me!  I was just a weeee teeny thing!  I was only 2 months old in this pic.

Me at 1.  Already enjoying the cool air vent!

Oh look!  It's me at age 2, still on my favorite cool air vent! Hmmmm, I'm starting to see a pattern here.

With my chewy at age 3.

Age 4.  Hmmmm, something about the location of this photo looks a little familiar.

Finally, me now, age 5!

I may be all grown up, but I couldn't have become the girl, I mean WOMAN that I am today, if it weren't for the wonderful mothering of my beautiful Holly!  She raised me to be the absolute best puppy.  Hu-mom still comments on the things I do that remind her of Holly.  All I can say is, I'm sure glad I take after her.  She was the ultimate role model for a Princess like ME!

And so, for my birthday, as my (and Holly's) good friend Summi would say....WHIP AND SPRINKLES FOR ALL!  Or, as my favorite Unkey Tubey (yes, he is my real uncle) says....CHEESE AND BACON FOR ALL!  I'll let you all decide which you would rather have.

Yes, Titus has been having quite a good time digging in the mud!  Remember THIS post where dad measured how deep the hole was getting? Well, Titus was finally caught in the act this time!

Dad had even filled in the hole with the dirt, but Titus decided he wanted the dirt OUT of the hole!  Oh, and ignore dads comment about the dog poo containers on top of the air conditioner.  He was just getting ready to take it all out to the trash!

Oh well!  At least it wasn't me getting caught!

Happy weekend everybuddy!

It's the "grumpy old man's" birthday today!  Samuel is 15!!!!

Until Titus got here, Samuel was my most favorite pup to chew on!  Even in his old age he still liked to play with me and was such a good sport!  Now, not as much, but hey, at his age he has the right to want to not be bugged by a kid like me!

So, enjoy your day Samuel!  And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Hey every buddy! Khady Lynn here!

I just want you all to know that I am aware I have some VERY big paws to fill by taking over my momma Holly's blog, so I sure hope that I can do her proud.

However, hu-mom says we seem to have gone a little "wild" without Holly here.  There have been a few things get chewed up. (pens, paper, two more doggie beds, another pillow from our (well, Holly's) couch, dad's ear buds, a candle, and hu-mom's nail polish ended up outside, just to name a few)  Hu-mom says it's because Holly isn't here to keep us all "in line".  I certainly don't recall ever being in a line, but apparently now that she isn't here, we are definitely not in it!

Holly also made sure our playing didn't get too out of hand.  She was always worried about me, and didn't want anyone messing with her baby.  But, hu-mom says the only one who seems to be getting "messed" with now, is Titus. 


He makes an easy target though.  He doesn't really fight back.  That's so lame.

Happy Husky Smackdown!

And then, along came the baby.

And it was as if Holly had given birth to Khady herself!  The love and connection was incredible!

Holly NEVER payed with any of the other dogs except Khady.  Or, allowed them to play with Khady the way she did.

Even when Holly was trying to act all "tough" with Khady, Khady always knew she could get away with it!

They were the very best of friends!

There are soooo many more that I could add.  Khady is doing pretty good.  She seemed a little sad the first couple of days.  When Khady, Lena and Titus would play, I could see Khady stopping to look around, as if wondering when her momma was going to come running in to break up the fun!  Holly hated it when anyone else played with Khady.  She was so protective of her.  We'll just have to see how things come along as everyone gets use to the "fun police" not being around.

I know I am missing her presence terribly.  I still keep thinking she will come walking in the doggie door any minute.  Or, that I will look over and she is sprawled out on her couch. It's going to take a long time for me to get use to not having my big Boo around.  All I can say is, I'm pretty sure she will be watching over her precious baby Khady!

Until we are together again one day, rest in peace my beautiful Holly.  I sure hope they have a big couch for you to nap on in heaven.

All our love forever,
Mom and dad.

As I continue down memory lane, I'd like to share some of Holly's adventures "out and about"!

Here are a few of the trips Holly took. 

First, Zorinsky Lake, here in Omaha, for a day of frolicking in  the water, and hunting for critters.

A warm day in winter to take a dip!

There's got to be something interesting in there!

A keen eye and alert ears listening for those critters.

A beautiful stance while chillin' in the lake.

 Second, a very special trip to meet her bestest Malabro, Summit the Super Mal, for the very first time!

Summi on the left and Holly on the right.  Hard to believe Summi was only 10 months old then!!  To say he's a big boy, is an understatement!

Walking with the Big Guy!

Being playful with her new pal.

Next, a trip to the Danish Windmill in Elk Horn Iowa.

With dad in front of the windmill.

 Looking for the rabbit who ran into the bushes.

Checking out the scenery.

From there, we actually continued our trip and visited the historic Covered Bridges of Madison County!

This is the Cutler-Donahoe Bridge built in 1870.

Checking out the inside of the covered bridge.

While in the same area, we found this really cool castle.

The wording on the side of the castle says "Erected in memory of Caleb and Ruth Clark. Pioneer settlers of Madison County.1846-1926."

A great view from the tower.

Beauty shot in the fall scenery.

And, finally, in July, 2008, off to meet her true love, Dave, and the rest of the Army of Four in Kansas.

Meeting the Ao4 hu-mom.

Meeting the beautiful leader of the Ao4, Stormy.

The sweet and lovely Amber.

The very handsome Zim.

Overwhelmed with joy at meeting her adorable beau, Dave!  

She was VERY excited to finally meet her true love!

She DEFINITELY enjoyed her car rides!

I sure hope this picture makes you laugh as much as I always do when looking at it!

Until tomorrow.

Holly's mom, Jan
