Nicknames: The Suik, Suika Su, Sukita, Strumpet, Strump, Spoiled Brat, Watermellon, Cow Head, Teh Baby, Dirty Dirty, Pretty Pretty.
Birthday: July 25th 2005
Likes: WALKS! She lives to walk. She also likes playing with her toys, belly rubs, tooth tug of war, and chewing on her humans.
Pet-Peeves: Having her face washed, missing her daily walk, not having your full attention, newspapers, and going to the groomers.
Favorite Toy: Her raw hide/nylabone chew toys, and her humans.
Favorite Food: What ever happens to be on your plate at the moment. And PEANUTS!!
Favorite Walk: She loves to walk the streets of our neighborhood.
Best Tricks: Giving kisses.
Arrival Story: Suika (pronounced Sue-Ka) was originally owned by the grand-daughter of a friend of my in-laws. When the grand daughter decided that having a dog took too much effort, Suika was offered to us for free. Being smart people, we jumped at the opportunity.
Bio: Suika is everything you've ever heard a husky can be and more. She talks up a storm when you ask her if she's ready for a walk, and practically does back flips while you get her harness and leash ready. She'll woo at you for not paying enough attention to her or if you don't make with the belly rubs. She hates it when you sit down to read the newspaper, and will show you by crawling into your lap and laying on it. And if a bit of the paper happens to get in her mouth, well she can't help it.
Please take a moment of your time to read this important message
Hoochie and Raley are two Siberian pals of mine who were brutally gunned down in Florida, shot 6 times at point blank range right in front of their owner, who was begging for the shooter to stop. Through the grace of God they are alive and on the mend, but could sure use some pals right about now.
You see, the police are stalling by not filing charges against the shooter, hoping the outrage will die down and then they can let it all just fade away. We need people to maintain pressure on the State Prosecutor so that will NOT happen.
Please consider signing the on line petition that has been started, in order to bring charges against this monster.
Also feel free to visit Hoochie's and Raley's MySpace page for frequent updates on their condition.
And finally, here is a page from the ASPCA's on line community, with the names and addresses of people you can write to, to INSIST that justice is served.
That link also includes a link to a You Tube video, showing the shooting. Thankfully there was a tourist filming the whole thing. Beware - not for the faint of heart.
