Arrival Story: KJ came into my life when I needed him most. I had recently said goodbye to my beloved Angel ^Kiska^, my 5 year old Alaskan Malamute. She died of cancer on April 10th, 2004, after battling this disease for over a year. Her death devastated me beyond anything I had ever experienced in my life. I could not function anymore, did not want to get out of bed in the mornings, could not face the world without her. My husband thought we should get another puppy, give another a loving home in her honor. I didn't know if I was ready. A friend found a Malamute puppy out of state, a little girl. He sent a picture of her on his cell phone to us, she was so adorable we decided to get her. He sent another picture of her and sitting beside her was another pup. When I saw his face, it was love at first sight. We ended up with both puppies. KJ and his sister, Rain, rode back to So. Dak. in our friends Semi. with him. They were my saving grace. They brought me back to the world of the living and gave me a reason to get up in the morning. I truly believe that God and my Angel ^Kiss^ sent them to me. KJ has shadowed me from the moment we met, he is my special little boy. I feel like ^Kiska's^ spirit is all around him. And sweet little Rain is a joy. No one or nothing can ever replace ^Kiska's^ place in my heart. But I have room in my heart for all of them. They will have all the love they need and a forever home with me always. I call KJ Angel Wings because he has a pair of white angel wings on his belly. When I saw them I knew that he was indeed Heaven Sent.

Any help you can give to this important cause is important,no purchase is too small! So let's support Mica's IMHA Fund for Bebe, Angel Mica & so many other's who are suffering from this disease & in memory of those lost.
I can't begin to thank all of my pals for being there for me & my family during my hospital stay & on my return home. So many thoughtful & loving messages, gifts, emails & comments in our diaries. We couldn't have made it through without your support!
It truly was bittersweet for mom. So thankful that I was getting better & could come home. But so sad that her sister's dog, Kiana, would not be coming home too. We miss her so very much & want to thank you all for the prayers & loving messages for her. Mom has been wanting to make a page for her. She has a special place in mom's heart as she was our Angel Kiska's sister & she has been in mom's life since she was a pup. She has just been overwhelmed lately & just can't seem to concentrate on much these days. Maybe when things settle down a little she can make a memorial page for her.
As for me, I am improving daily. My appetite is getting better each day. Of course mom is cooking all my meals as I really don't want that dry dog food any more. She is going to have trouble getting me off homecooking!
I am taking liver supplements daily & will go back for a blood panel in a couple of weeks to make sure that all the levels look good. She was thrilled the other night when I came running out of the bedroom with my big green moose wanting to play! I haven't done that in quite some time. I am getting stronger with each day!
So many to thank, that will take us some time but mom is determined it will be done! We love you All!
Thank You For Caring...
♥Love♥ & Mal Kisses to All!
It is with a sad and heavy heart we write this entry. My mom's sister's 10 yr old Malamute, Kiana, made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge shortly before noon on August 11th 2009. She could not overcome the liver failure & it was time to let her go home. My mom went with Kiana's pawrents to say goodbye. She could not let her leave without telling her how very much she loved her & what a special place she had in her heart.
Our beloved Angel Kiska & Kiana are sisters. Our mom got Kiska the same day our Aunt got Kiana. They grew up together & were constant playmates until we lost Kissa in 2004 to Cancer. Mom says they are together again & the first thing they probably did was head for the water. Their favorite thing in the world!
We are heartbroken she had to leave us & will miss her welcoming howl every time someone came home, that gorgeous smile when you called her name & her singing when you asked for a song . Mom is so glad she got to spend the last 3 months with her. She & her family have been living with us since May. Please say a prayer for them.
Thank all of you for your prayers, your love & support for myself & Kiana. I can't tell you what it has meant to my family & I for there simply aren't words to describe what all your love & support have meant to us. We LOVE♥ you ALL!
In Loving Memory of Angel Kiana...
