Arrival Story: Petfinder.com
She was a street dog from Arkansas who the Animal Control officer had kindly taken to Judy who is affiliated with the "Paws and Claws" http://www.facebook.com/group.php? gid=363297737735 Rescue group rather than the pound and a few weeks later on Valentine's Day I picked her up off Kyle Peterson's Transport in Windham NH. We have been together every day since and in April 2009 she became a legal service dog so we are together 24/7. My world has grown and the outside world has become manageable, if not comfortable. She is my angel and I've realized that I didn't rescue Kira, she rescued ME!
Bio: Kira Loves to stalk and hunt little critters and birds. She "points", cocks her head from side to side, carefully and stealthily stalks and pounces like a fox when she "hunts" in the fields. Once she caught a vole and we had a merry chase to convince her not to eat it! Recently she caught a fledgling Downy Woodpecker. Now she stays on leash unless she is fully engaged in a game with me!
diggin': I adore following my nose and if it leads me to a good place to dig, all the better! Sometimes I dig so deep that I rip out small roots with my teeth, snort the dirt out of my nose and I'm underground except for my back end!I always find the "bones" and treasures I bury too!
Mum talked with someone from the Lab that did my DNA test and got more information about my family tree. They sent us an email with a chart that Mum put up with my pictures if anyone's interested to look.. Seems the only thing Japanese about me is my name!Mum says I'm Perfect just as I am and that she always knew I was one of a kind!Maybe I'll join an Old English Sheepdog club for woofs and wags!
WOW! We got the DNA results from the Vet today and Mum is still laughing! It says I am Pure Pomeranian down one side from my Great-Grandparents on down and...wait for it.... OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOG and a mixed breed on the other side all the way to my Great-Grandparents! NO SHIBA-INU at all! Mum keeps introducing me as her Old English Sheepdog and laughing. Good thing it didn't say Rotti or I'd have a go at her Kankles! Harumph! Kira.
