I am excited to be participating in the 2008 Tails on the Trails fundraiser sponsored by Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue, Inc. (TOTTSHR). I will spend the morning hiking to help Siberian Huskies. As an added bonus, there is a good chance that I may even win a great prize for the most money raised.
Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue, Inc. (TOTTSHR), is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization comprised of volunteers throughout PA, MD, NJ, DE, WV and NY who dedicate their time and effort to rescuing Siberian Huskies and Siberian Husky mixes from shelters, abusive homes, or owners who can no longer properly care for their dogs. Their goal is to place these dogs in loving homes and to educate people about the characteristics of this often misunderstood breed. They have proven their success with the placement of more than 700 dogs in permanent homes since April 2000.
On September 20, 2008, TOTTSHR will hold its 6th annual Tails on the Trails at Warminster Community Park in Warminster, PA. Tails on the Trails 2008 will consist of a fundraising hike as well as many activities including a picnic, silent auction, microchip clinic, mushing demonstration and CGC testing.
WOO-HOO! Mom just got off of the phone with the vet. My latest U/A showed that overnight, I concentrated my urine beautifully! My kidneys are working properly. No Cushings, no Addison's, no problem. Whew! Doc says he feels confident that I am well and we will just check things out at my next routine visit. Thank you to all that have sent notes of support. They go a long way. Mom can finally exhale and I am off to find more trouble, create more ruckus, and kill more crickets. Life is good. :)
Mom finally spoke with the vet last night about my blood work. It all looks pretty good, but my thyroid levels are elevated. So, more blood work for me. He also wants us to bring in another urine sample from my first walk in the morning, so mom got one and we will drop it off today to see if I am concentrating my urine overnight. We also have to check my zinc levels again. Doc says when I left the hospital last time my zinc levels were 4+. (Normal is 0.75) He is stumped as to what is going on with me, but we are going to figure it out. Will keep you posted.
