Arrival Story: Back in March or April of 2002 I had to put my Siberian Husky to sleep. This was caused by an accident years earlier. Some one had left our gate open and he got out and was clipped in the hind quarters by a car. We were told that there was some nerve damage and that he would be alright for now but that when he got older it may have a more serious outcome. Towards the end he was prescribed steroids. They helped my "Sky" a little, but you could clearly see he was still uncomfortable. I didn't want to face the reality of being humane. I didn't want to let him go. The first time he urinated on himself...(which was only within the first couple of days of being put on the steroids) I knew what had to be done. It was time for my baby to be pain free and at peace. I missed Sky so much and was very sad and lonely. I started looking for another companion, knowing there would never be another to take my Sky's place. I thought that maybe I should rescue a shelter animal. Someone That needed to be loved and cared for. In my heart I knew this would be the best therapy for both of us. This is how I acquired Biskit....the dog you see behind my Buddy in the picture above. Biskit was a sad little puppy and nothing I seemed to do made her happy. I guess she really missed her foster parents and all the other shelter friends she had. I thought I should get her a little brother or sister. My husband was not crazy about the idea at all. My daughters boyfriend had a Brittany Spaniel puppy that my daughter wanted to find a home for because she said he was a terror and would not potty train. SOOOO I brought him home with me. My husband was not at all happy about this and it took a lot of work on my part to finally get him to agree to keep Buddy. Buddy has been with us since then :)
