Arrival Story:
Arashi was in a pound 1 day from his PTS date when someone rescued him for me in Virginia.

The shelter told her that Arashi was suspected of being kept in a crate most of his first 8 months of life which probably caused him to chew the fur and skin off his legs out of boredom. He and Mikhah had a rocky start for the first couple of months but become best buddies. They share food and love to wrestle. Arashi is Japanese for Thunderstorm and believe me, he lives up to it. He loves to lay outside in the snow and the rain and I can't count the number of times I have gone outside in the dark of night to bring him inside for bedtime. (Thank goodness for the security light!) Of course, Arashi couldn't possibly use the dog house or huge lean-to I built them for cover. He has to be in the elements. He loves to watch the lightning bugs, the bats catching insects, the stars and the sounds of the night. He can tell if a snowstorm is coming by sniffing the wind and he can tell the direction it will be coming in too! He loves to jump through a hoop and is a riot when ice cream is on the menu - he licks his lips, then smacks them really loud and backs up in sheer delight of the thought. When he gets his bath, he is truly the only dog I have even seen who can backup the shower wall and just have his front feet in the tub and his hind feet more than half way up the sides of the shower and stay there until I am done giving him his bath! Arashi and Mikhah both know all of their tricks verbally as well as, in American Sign Language. Arashi has a medical problem; he is an epileptic but so far the seizures are far enough apart that he requires no medication at this time. Mikhah is very protective of him. Arashi loved his Kong and when I gave him his first knuckle bone he had a very creative idea. He and Mikhah would take their Kongs up to the top of the stairs and fling them to get the stuffing out easy. Arashi thought if he did the same thing with the knuckle bone treats would come out and proceeded to do this. Crashing down the stairs came the knuckle bone leaving dents on the stairs and bounced off the kitchen floor and hit my foot. I thought surely my foot was broken. Before I could recover, Mikhah followed Arashi in the knuckle bone throwing down the stairs. Arashi has forced me to keep the deadbolt on the back door. He is a master at opening the back door from the outside and coming in. Of course he leaves it wide open and I get to try and catch the cats who got out. Last winter I forgot to use the deadbolt and left the house for a couple of hours. I came home to the door wide open, about 6 inches of snow all over the kitchen floor for about 6-8 feet and I had to go out into the fields with a flashlight to find one of my cats who scaled the 6 foot fence. Of course the temperature inside the house wasn't exactly warm. What a good boy he was... Sadly, on December 3, 2011 Arashi suddenly passed away and is on his journey through the stars to Rainbow Bridge. He was not feeling well at dinner and didn't eat and I kept going out to his dog house to check on him. I stayed with him for awhile each time and prayed for him. Then when I went back out to check on him, I found he had passed away. I am devastated because I wasn't with him and this was so unexpected. Just 2 days after his 12th birthday. The vet believes it was a tumor on the spleen that ruptured. My precious boy you will never know what sadness I feel that I won't be able to hug you again or throw the ball for you or put up with the multitude of times at night when you would go outside only to come back in to get another bedtime biscuit until I refused to give you another one. My dear Arashi Godspeed on your journey to Rainbow Bridge that was far too soon and so sudden. My heart is broken without you but you will be forever in my heart. I love you my precious boy.
