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...
BRIDGE OF LOVE
JUST INSIDE THE GATES OF HEAVEN,
IS A BRIDGE BUILT FROM LOVE
CALLED RAINBOW BRIDGE.
IT GLOWS WITH THE UNITY OF PEACE,
IT SPANS A RIVER OF THE BLUEST BLUE.
NO ONE IS ALONE THERE,
GOD'S ANGELS WAIT THERE FREE FROM PAIN
TO BE REUNITED WITH THEIR SOULMATES.
THEY GUIDE US TO THEM.
THIS IS A BRIDGE WATCHED OVER BY ANGELS.
WHEN YOUR HEART CRIES OUT FOR THEM THEY HEAR YOU
AND THEY WHISPER BACK,
I AM NEVER FAR,
I AM ALWAYS IN YOUR HEART,
I AM ALWAYS IN YOUR SOUL.
WHEN YOUR TEARS FALL
THEY ARE THERE TO HELP YOU DRY THEM.
WHEN YOUR STEPS FALTER THEY SEND OTHERS
FOR YOU TO LEAN ON.
THEY SEND YOU DREAMS, & BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES
TO HELP YOU HEAL.
THEY TOUCH YOUR HEART
WITH VELVET TOUCHES FROM GENTLE PAWS.
THEY HOLD YOUR HAND WHILE YOU REMEMBER
LOVE IS FOREVER & ALL AROUND YOU.
RAINBOW BRIDGE IS A BRIDGE OF LOVE,
A BRIDGE OF PEACE AND HEALING
WHERE ALL ARE YOUNG AGAIN,
WHERE ALL ARE WHOLE AGAIN.
REACH OUT TO A STAR
& THEY WILL FEEL YOUR TOUCH ON THIER ANGEL WINGS.
NOW IS YOUR TURN TO FIND HEALING.
RIGHT NOW THAT SOUNDS SO HARD,
I TOO HAVE FELT THIS WAY.
YOU WILL STILL ALWAYS MISS THEM,
HOW COULD YOU STOP MISSING SUCH PURE LOVE?
THE MEMORIES THAT YOU SHARE
EACH DAY WILL HELP YOU
A HEART BEAT AT A TIME,
EACH DAY WILL GET EASIER TO FACE.
YOU HAVE FELT SOMETHING NOT MANY FEEL....
THE TRUE LOVE OF AN ANGEL
Rest in Peace beautiful girl....We ♥love♥ you....

I am HOME!
Mom came to get me late this afternoon! I was never so thrilled to see her. And I know she was GLAD to see me.
My liver values are continuing to go down, not there yet, but we are getting there. Came off the IV fluids yesterday & values were still lower today. ALT under 300. I refused to eat while at the vet clinic, so doc thought it best if I went home. Maybe I would eat for mom. I was getting pretty hungry since my last meal on Aug 1st! So tonight I ate for mom!! Not a full course meal, but I ate!
She was thrilled. Mom & my doctor will be monitoring my progress. I am still on antibiotics, Denosyl & Denamarin. Will stay on this for a month or so and then check my liver values again. We couldn't have done it without your pawrayers!
But sadly, my housemate Kiana, is very, very sick and has gotten much worse since she went in on Friday. The treatment is not working. Tomorrow will tell us what we need to know. The vet said she couldn't come home even for a day or so, she is too sick. If there is no improvement by tomorrow we will be saying goodbye to our beloved Kiana. Pawlease say a prayer for her...
Love & Thanks!

On Feb 22, 2009 we lost a dear & cherished friend...Lassie joined the Angels at the Rainbow Bridge. Please say a prayer for her & her family whose hearts are broken. She was 4 yrs old with a heart as big as the sky, always there to help, to encourage & to share in joys & sorrows with us all. We will miss you sweet Angel...
LIFE...so fragile. LOSS... so sudden. HEART...so broken.
In the wake of such a loss, we're haunted by things we don't - and may never - understand. Yet the solace we seek may not come from answers. So we look for comfort in the belief of love's everlasting connection. May that love lift you, hold you close, and give you peace.
With Love...for Lassie & her family
From the silence of your pain I heard my name
and on the wings of light I have come
to see the sadness in your eyes
that cry so many tears
Can you see me, I am here
I will always be near you
to calm your shattered heart
and to make you smile at the memories
Do you feel me, perhaps a soft brush of fur
You ache to believe it's real
but you are afraid to hope
You brush away a strand of hair
But it was I, whispering.....
I am only here for but a moment
The silver thread gently quivers
I will leave behind my love in a dream
When you awaken, and without really knowing why
Your heart will know at last
That it is all right, for now
to say good-bye

Love, Hugs & Prayers,

It is with great sadness I write this diary entry. A beautiful and treasured friend, Butterfly, has lost her battle with this horrible, horrible disease. She was one of my first friends here on Dogster & I will miss her so very much. A very special girl who will always hold a special place in my family's hearts.
She lost her battle with Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia on November 18th. She lived with this terrible illness and beat it back twice, but the third time she wasn't able to overcome it. Our hearts, love and prayers go out to her family & her Best Friend, Scotia, another friend dear to our hearts. Please say a prayer for Butterfly and her family.
In Loving Memory of Butterfly....
****A Brilliant Rainbow****
High on whispered wings I fly,
a radiant star, I light the sky.
Toward the sun I soar so free,
a brilliant rainbow follows me.
I pulsate through your very soul
and in my paws your heart I hold.
The day will come when you'll fly too,
I'll be here then to welcome you.
Until the time we meet again
I won't journey far my friend.
For in your love I live so free,
a brilliant rainbow guiding me.
Godspeed sweet Angel...
Love Always, KJ & Family

I have been tagged by the beautiful Delilah Happy Girl, the ever so regal Rising Sun & the lovely Lady.
The rules of the game say to tell 7 things about yourself & then tag 7 pals with either a pawmail or rosette. Well I am going to tell 7 things about myself, but as so many of my pals have already been tagged & are busy preparing for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday & I don't want to add to their busy schedule I am not going to tag anyone this time around. Just going to wish everypup a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Now for the 7 things about myself.
1. I love going in the car, as long as it's not to the vets office!
2. I am mom's constant shadow.
3. I don't like it when Rain thinks she can share mom's bed with me!
4. I am not a Little Pony to those kids who think they can ride me!
5. I like to ride in the front seat even though its a tight fit.
6. I love the water!!!
7. And I can never get enough Snow!
Wishing everyone a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving!

I was recently tagged by my friend, an adorable Miniature Schnauzer & his name is SCOOTER & shortly after that, my sister Rain, was also tagged by another friend, a sweet little Jack Russell Terrier & guess what her name was....SCOOTER! What are the odds of that??? They are both adorable & we want to thank them for thinking of us.
We decided since mom is short on time to do the tandem thing like our Guardian Angels did. So here goes, we will try and come up with something we both like without too much arguing.
(1) want the same toy ALL the time!
(2) LOVE the SNOW!
(3) want the same spot on Mom & Dad's bed!
(4) absolutely adore Peanut Butter!
(5) hate it when we have to put on our mud boots!
(6) despise bath time, but love our swimming pool in the summer!
(7) don't like sharing mom's attention!
So as you can see we do agree on quite a few things, but I'm sure deciding on who we should tag will be an all night argument! If you get a pawmail from either of us, that means we finally decided on who we should tag!
Have a Great Week Everyone!
Mal Hugs & Kisses... KJ & Rainy
