I like to meet new friends, both four and two-legged! I recently became a certified therapy dog and I love to go to the hospitals and visit with the kids.
The baby gates Mom and Dad use to separate me and my sister from the cat!
My rope bone that Mom bought me when I first came home as a puupy.
My raw Venison food!!! Whatever Mom and Dad are eating! and the homemade treats that my mom made me for my birthday!
I love to go anywhere!!! But my favorite was climbing Lily Mountain near Estes Park, CO and all over in the Indian Peaks Wilderness in the Colorado Rockies.
I can bow, sit or lay down, but I won't always do it on command... just when I want to... when there's something in it for me!
Mom had always wanted a husky. She had never been a 'dog person', always a cat type. She always said that the only dog she would have would be a Siberian Husky. Mom waited until she had a yard for me and then started looking for breeders in the area. When mom saw my puppy picture on the kennel's website, Mom's only comment was 'I love her'. Mom and dad came and picked me up the next weekend!!! I never cried - not even once... okay well, maybe once.
Badger broke her growth plate when she was still a puppy and it caused her foot to turn sideways and is causing some damage and pain. 2 surgeons from Iowa State will be coming to Omaha to do her surgery on Jan 2nd. We hate the thought of her having to go through the surgery and the long recovery period, but we know this will be best.
It's been more than 3 months post surgery and finally in a week she will begin to have the pins and rods removed from her leg! This has been so hard on her, but she was so very good natured about the whole thing.
UPDATE - Badger's pins were removed in late April and splint free since May. Her leg is almost perfect now... just a tiny bit shorter... but completely straight and much less painful! We were so very lucky to have such skilled surgeons in the area.

Christmas time is full of heart tugging stories; I have been witness to several while working as a volunteer at my local animal shelter.
I learned of a kitten who was making its way to his new home, moving from Alaska to Maryland. When the family stopped for gas in a suburb of Omaha, the kitten got out of the car. The family looked for awhile, but had to keep moving. I don’t remember if it were days or weeks later, but the kitten showed up at the shelter, well fed and very well cared for. The assessment team checked for a microchip and lo and behold, there was information in the system. The alternate contact was reached in Arizona who put the shelter in touch with the family’s new contact information in Maryland. The kitten flew on a plane within days and was reunited with her family – and was home for the holidays.
Another story I was told was about a dog. A trusted companion of a man in California one day went missing. The man was heartbroken and looked and looked for his dog. Days turned to weeks, weeks to months and months to years. He believed that his dog was stolen, but couldn’t be sure. He thought of his friend often and wondered if he was alive, if he was warm and loved and happy. Half way across the country a German Sheppard found its way to our shelter. He was scanned for a microchip and the owner was called. Imagine the man’s surprise when after 3 long years is dog was found all the way in Nebraska. The man caught the first flight he could find to reunite himself with his dog, he rented a car and they both drove home.
These stories make me happy, they make me cry tears of joy and fill my heart with hope.
These stories make me ask, where is Blue? These stories give me hope that Blue may someday be found. It may be miles away; it may be years from now. My prayer is that Blue will one day find his way back home. www.WhereIsBlue.com.

My mom has been keeping me from my pals at dogster and its been awful. There is no excuse for it although she keeps trying to make them... 15 hour work days, including weekends have made her cranky, Taysia Blue has had some issues that require a lot of attention and time. She sometimes comes home at bedtime, has a quick dinner and then off to bed to do it again the next day.
She thinks that she's over the hurdle at work (for now anyway), she hired someone to help finally... Taysia Blue is starting to stabalize a bit more... so she's promosed to allow me dogster time at least once a week.
I feel like its been months since I've talked to some of you or spent anytime on here... I miss you all so much. Mom misses your humom & hudads too.
She says that she'll try to find a better balance.
Many apologies and husky kisses!!!
Badger along with Jambalaya, Taysia Blue and humom Jackie
