Arrival Story:
Lakota is origionally from Sierra Blanca, TX and she had been adopted by a family in that area as a pet for their 11 year-old daughter. As with all younger children, however, their daughter lost interest in her and then eventually began to ignore her. So the family sent Lakota back to the breeder that they bought her from. My search for a pet/family member began a few weeks after my previous pet (Tank) got sick and had to be put down. I found the breeder's website and noticed that they had a 6 month old Mackenzie that was free because of how old she was. I got in touch with them and we spoke for a while, about her history and mannerisms. I fell in love with her the moment I got her picture and from that point I knew she was going to be a part of my family. Origionally, I had intended to drive out to pick her up but because of automotive trouble and the distance I wasn't able to. A few weeks later, I finally saved up enough money and flew her out to where I live and she's been with myself and my family ever since.

Until she arrived at the ariport, I didn't have a name picked out for the Mackenzie Valley Wolf that would soon become a part of my family. My boyfriend, Kyle, and I waited for almost an hour at the baggage serves, I was literally bouncing up and down with anticipation. He could tell I was excited even before he had decided to come inside and wait with me because my accent comes out really bad when I'm excited and he could hear it over the phone. In my defense, though, I had waited for almost a month for her to fly in and she was finally here; people couldn't move fast enough to make me happy...

When I finally saw her in person she was in the carrier just...waiting, looking around and keeping to herself. It was then that I fianlly knew what to call her, so from that point forward she's been Lakota. Kyle had to talk me out of just bypassing airport procedure and taking her more times than I can possibly count. But when protocol was out of the way, over and done with, we let her out of the carrier and took her home.

She must have been tired from the flight because she didn't really want to eat anything, but it was understandable. So Kyle and I encouraged her onto the foot of the bed and almost as soon as she laid down she was asleep. It was so late at that point, and both Kyle and I had to be up early, that we both kind of laid down, Tetris-ed onto the bed like a family usually is, and that was Lakota's first night home with us.
