Her mummy & daddy - and toys and treats and leather shoes
Hates the blower on the AC and when mum is out of sight
her booda bone, it's her tuggie toy and she LOVES playing tuggie
a nice steak? my shoes? Daddy's chocolate Easter bunny?
loves going walkies anywhere
she can undo zippers and open kitchen cabinets to help herself to goodies
She was 4 months old and I was her third mum in the space of a month. She needed an experienced, full-time husky mum - the first 'owners' clearly couldn't handle her, and the breeder's friends who had sold her originally have an older dog who didn't exactly relish sharing his home with a bratty puppy. So she came into my life and took it over. A shy, scared, timid and VERY naughty puppy is now a confident, outgoing and occasionally very naughty young lady. And I've learned to hide my shoes.
Today's her second birthday. I had wondered if we all would survive her puppyhood! True to form, she woke me up three times last night to go sniff outside, then presented me with her Booda bone as I was trying to wake up over a cup of tea! She has become adept at theivery and totally lacks morals, but we are usually laughing too hard to get mad at her!
Cinnamon is now maturing (we wondered if it would ever happen!) and while she still loves to play, instead of eating our leather riding gloves she now puts them in the middle of the living room floor, as if to say "I could have chewed them up if I'd wanted to, but I'm being a good girl!" Needless to say, she has cost us a fortune in Harley gloves over the years! She also loves to leap - one of her party tricks (which we discourage but to no avail) is to take a flying leap over the back of a sofa, sometimes bouncing off the cushions, other times just plain clearing the thing. She can get some serious air! We've seen her jump into the air from a standstill, turn 180 degrees and land, all in the space of a second.

It's hard to imagine Cinnamon's 8 now. She doesn't act it, that's for sure. While she's better behaved, on the whole, than in years past, she still can be more mischief than any furkid half her age.
In the past year we've survived pyometria (false pregnancy, a killer infection if not caught early) followed a month later by her finding, opening and eating a huge box of very high-quality dark chocolates. Let's just say that as I add up the vet bills, I know for sure she's worth her weight in gold! A year or two earlier we had the $1500 grapes, the $400 corn cob... since early December she's cost another $3000 - but not a penny grudgingly given. She's worth thousands of times more just in love alone.
Every day I look at her and am very grateful she's such a huge part of my life. And I wish on the stars that she lives an exceptionally long and healthy life, at least as long as I do!

My darling Cinnamon -
I never thought I'd ever get over losing your sister-in-Heaven, Tiksi, nor that I would ever be able to love another furry child like I loved her. Then you came into my life. You so badly needed a loving family and were so afraid of losing your 'pack' again, our entire lives refocused on making you feel secure and loved and wanted. Funny thing is, while we were helping you heal from your insecurities, you healed my heart. Yes, there are times you drive me to the brink of insanity - it's called being a puppy. You just tend to take it to extremes! But there is nothing quite like that greeting we get when we come home to make us know that we are loved by one we love so much. Thank you for being.
Love, Mummy and Daddy
