I just realized that I have been a bit slack on here.

After we got Kiska in early May things really started to pop. In early June we got Kodiak (Kodi) from the pound in Whiteville NC. In late June The pound in Elizabeth City called us about Kane. In early July, Kodi went to live up in MD with a Dogster friend. Then in September we got Georgia out of the pound in Rome GA. Turbo (Bo) came to us in late October from Lancaster Co SC. We met Jennifer up in High Point. She had pulled him from the pound for us an drove him up to meet us there. I went with dad and sometimes Mom on the trips to meet them. A couple days after Bo arrived in late October Taz joined us too. She is a 13 year old little girl from McMinnville TN (the same place I came from) who's humans didn't want any more. Then in early December we went up to the Greensboro area to meet meet Jennifer again (this time in what turned out to be a major snowstorm) to get Blue who was in the pound in Rutherfordton NC. So now we are a big, happy pack of 23 hoodlums. That is, except for me ..... as I am an angel.

I have also been busy with my Therapy work averaging a visit a week.

I have been with my Dad for almost two years now and will be in my Forever home two years on the 18th, my Mom's birthday. I love it here, being with my parents and 22 other Huskies who like me for the most part were rescued from less than loving places. I mean, really, how can one be unhappy with that many playmates, plus I have a job as a Therapy Dog, so I get to go out and give free Husky kisses to people in several area nursing homes.

Life is good!

While on the way back home from rescueing our new brother, Kodiak (Kodi) I was asleep on the backseat when dad woke me up with a LOUD whoopee! He got the word that Chris Barnett, the so called man who abused me, appeal was thrown out of court.

He must now serve his sentence:

* 11 months & 29 days in jail of which 75 days jail time must be served;
*100 hours of public (community) service;
*Attendance at an Anger Management Class;
*Restitution of $5,071.50 in costs for the care of Lucas to the Humane society of Warren County;
*Restriction of no future ownership of domestic animals, with the exception of horses, as Barnett is a farrier by training and occupation; and
*Surrender of my friend Honey, Barnett's Boxer to the Humane Society
I hope he is held liable for the upkeep of Honey's up keep too. The HS could not rehome her while the case was on appeal, and I don't think they got anything for the first eleven months either. She has been held for around 27 months now.

I went to Anderson, SC with dad yesterday to rescue another little sister who's name is now Kiska. She is a sweet little girl and we both slept in bed with dad at a motel last night. Good thing it was a kingsize bed!

My new little sister, Nadia, got to her forever home here at 5pm Eastern. I went down to Fayetteville, NC with dad to complete the shuttle from Miami FL. Within 30 minutes she had become a full member of our pack. She is a wonderful little girl. I would like to thank Jennifer and Cindy for their help getting her to her new home. I hope to have pictures up in the next day or so though you could look at a picture of me and shrink it down as she is a 40 lb image of me.

I had a Therapy job today and took Sheba along with me. She did pretty well, but I think she was a little standoffish. She would go up to the folks and lay down and ignore them .... of course she doesn't give out kisses like I do.

Also, it looks like I'm going on a road trip tomorrow to get Nadia, who will be our new sister. She looks so much like me that we could be twins! We are going to meet a lady who is bringing Nadia up from Florida to Fayetteville, NC and bring her the rest of the way home.

It was one year ago today that I arrived here in Hertford to my forever home. And what a year it has been!

The trip here was a bit of an adventure. Dad picked me up in the early evening of the 16th from Ms Anderson's kennel. She and the rest of the Humane Society took good care of me while I was held as evidence in my abuser's trial. I spent the first night with my dad in a motel there in McMinneville. That is where I learned how much fun it is to sleep in a bed with my dad. I also met another Husky that looked just like me in the back part of the room. All he did though was to look at me, sniff me (he smelled just like me!) and copied every move I made. The next day we got off to a late start so we wound up staying in another motel in Winston Salem NC. That same Husky was in that room too and did the same things all over again! That evening I ate half of the steak that dad ordered from room service. It was OK though as I had not eaten since leaving Ms Anderson's. The canned food that dad brought up with him did not appeal to me at all. We got an early start the next morning and almost made it home. The truck broke down in Williamston NC or about 60 miles short of home. At any rate, mom drove down to pick me and dad up and the truck got towed to a diesel shop in Elizabeth City. Mom said it was the best birthday present ever.

Not only did I get a new mom and dad, when I arrived here, I also joined a wild pack of fourteen hoodlums ...... errr ...... Huskies, who accepted me without any reservations at all. It was like I had lived here all along. Two others joined us shortly afterwards, Panda will have been here a year the first part of February and Little S**t Head, aka Max the furniture and house eater, in early May. He really wound things up to say the least!

I then got certified as a Therapy Dog in July and started making visits to the local nursing hames shortly thereafter. The people there enjoy petting and rubbing me as well as scratching me behind the ears. It's a tough job but somebody has to do it. Then in October I was nominated for the WAVY TV channel 10, 10 Who Care awards. I didn't win the award itself (seems that it is for two legged critters) but I was a special honoree and attended the award luncheon in Hampton VA. I took mom and dad along and allowed them sit at the table with me and some of the other attendees. And all in all, I stole the show.

At any rate, if the coming year is anything like last year, I think that I will stay busy having lots of fun with my brothers and sisters as well as seeing my friends in the nursing homes, not to meantion sitting in dad's lap to watch TV and sleeping in bed with mom, dad and Max.

One year ago today I met my new dad for the first time! It was love at first sight. He had traveled up from here in Hertford NC to where I was in McMinnville TN to take me to my forever home and all my new brothers and sisters. Little did I know how much my life would change! More about this on the 18th, the actual anniversary of my coming home.
