Nicknames: The Hoover Dog, Jam, Little Jam, Jam-Jam, Lead Dog, Jammy, Jammy Jam, Jammybalaya, Squirming Worm, Rammin' Slammin' Jambalaya! Red Hot Explosion of a Dog!
Birthday: October 23rd 2006
Likes: SNOW!!!!!!!!!!! I love to play with toys and by sister Badger! I love attention and praise. Mom says that I'm a big lug, but such a sweetheart!
Pet-Peeves: Hot, humid Nebraska summers, Whenever my mommy leaves me and having the big dog food put out of reach.
Favorite Toy: Jambalaya has to have a stuffed toy (usually pink hedgehog) in her mouth while she's batting around a tennis ball at the same time.
Favorite Food: I'm just starting out on a RAW diet, MMMmmm! Thanks mom! I also like cheese and Banana Bread
Favorite Walk: The Dog Park!!! Woo hoo!!!!!
Best Tricks: My best trick is being an alarm clock - 5:20 sharp 7 days a week! I even adjusted to day light savings time. I can sit and to lay down. I can dance... Mom and Dad call it my 'Poodle Dance'.
Arrival Story: Mom and dad came down with that thing referred to in the Husky world as the potato chip syndrom and contacted the breeder that they got Badger from to see if she had any red and white puppies. She said that there was a litter soon to be born - that was me! Mom and dad were able to have first pick of a female.
Mom and dad saw my picture that was taken after just a day old and they decided on me right away - good choice, don't you think?
I came home with my big brother... we called him BUBBA because he was huge! He weighed 5 pounds more than me! We cried all the way home - for two hours! Then Bubba's (Henry) Mom and Dad came from Kansas City to pick him up... I was sad but then I met my new big sister Badger and I am so happy!
Mom and Dad got me from a responsible breeder near the South Dakota boarder called Cedar Winds Kennel. That's where they got my sister Badger too. When the breeder retires, she plans to use the kennel as a Siberian Husky rescue.
Bio: I've been home since mid December 2006 and I love it here! I quickly was potty trained and hardly had any accidents. I know how to sit and lay down and I can even leave my sister's food alone when I know I have to. Mom says I'm really smart, but Dad thinks I'm too smart for my own good - Dad calls me 'naughty' all the time. I don't quite get that!
I'm growing like a weed and mom & dad think I will be a big girl - bigger than my sister Badger who mom & dad calls a 'super model'... she's full grown and only 37 lbs and I'm tipping the scales at 31 and just 5 months old! UPDATE - at 6 months old I officially weigh more than Badger! I'm 39.5. Hey - what's a diet? Mom and dad keep talking about that when they look at me. ANOTHER UPDATE - at 7 months I'm well over Badger's skinny butt weight - I'm 46 lbs!
ANOTHER UPDATE! Oh no! Mom had to officially update my profile - I'm no longer a 'medium' size dog, I'm officially a 'large' dog at 51 lbs.
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.
