I took this picture with my iPhone, but Nala wouldn’t smile or do much of anything. So I scratched her & do you see? The beginning of a smile.
He & his brother were left, he was about 3 months old. His brother was wild & had Sophie’s Jacket in his mouth & Sophie was just laughing. In the car behind me was my 3 month old baby boy. The little girl being held by a solid white husky, I looked at the other dog, hiding in the corner. I asked the owner, why he was hiding. She said,”That one is very shy” I thought shy is good because of my 2 year old, 3month old & 7 year old. My husband had left for duty first in Dubai, he said buy that Husky you always wanted, the dog will make it easier to stay alone. “Hi Blue” my brother Michal had come to help. I picked up Blue & put him in the crate in the back seat handed over a $400 dol.lar check in her hand. “Hi Blue”
I though Blue would like to go on walks with us in the double stroller. It was like dragging a boulder. He wanted to go home. Here is a very small patio with a door to a small back yard. He got his exercise pacing in front of the door terrified. So, Blue is an inside dog. Hates walks, likes going outside without a leash, we have no fence, but he doesn’t leave the property much. This morning he decided he could not come when called. So Nala who is on a leash, go inside. It’s 5 a.m. I woke up at 3:30 again so it was dark when we went out.I knew that as soon as Blue noticed we had gone in, he would run up the back deck doors as get his only exercise, pacing & scared. So I let in my 100 pound almost 9 year old Beastie, I touch his back. I don’t remember doing that. But I had left evidence behind, Blue has Cobalt Blue Hue paint was on his back. I was painting & for some reason I get paint in the strangest places & it would drive my husband CRAZY about paint everywhere. Now, it just rolls off his back. I left the blue paint on Blues back, to show the kids, who will think its too funny.
The photograph was given to me by April she the big cheese of Alabama Siberian Husky. I was friends with the Alabama Siberian Husky on Facebook, so I could look at cute dogs.Then I see on FB this face of an angel. It said that she & her brother had a week left before she would be put to death. So I wrote to April & she said I had to fill out this form. This was serious business. She came to the house to see if we would be good fosters for Nala ( the kids named her, they had seen, ‘Lion king’ the day before) Nala came in very sore from being fixed. The rescue fixes & checks for heart worms & other things, they get all there shots, then we got her & a gift bag full of dog toys. & thats when I learned, I have just met the woman with the biggest heart in the world. I made this for her, from her photo. Two weeks with Nala, April started telling me that I need to put pictures of her & stories. So she can find her forever home. I kept thinking, this is her forever home. I told April the first week she was hurting, so we couldn’t figure out her personality. The next week she felt better & we realized her last name was Saab. We called April & paid her the low price of 300 dollars. My children have a box for charity & they wanted the money to go to the “Human Society” But they gave every bit of their money to April. She sat in our chair with her baby & maybe 50 dollars in quarters. This was during our interview, the kids wanted Nala,so badly. We have always given our charity money to our Temple Tots preschool. This year its gonna go to the lady with the big heart that gave us Nala. PLEASE, PLEASE if you want a special breed, PLEASE look on line to see if your desired breed as a rescue program. Or rescue a dog who is on death row. I will never buy from a breeder, I will rescue/foster first.
“I am a dog, but I consider myself the gate keeper. You know like in Thor. I am in charge, unless you have a cookie, then I put on the cute. Otherwise you can find me blocking the door to the stairs or the art studio oh, and I leave little bits of my fur so you know where Ive been. I am going to continue to block the doors & theres nothing you can do about it” says Nala. She is being dominate by blocking entry ways, Huskies can be very stubborn, Nala is not stupid. The first time I asked her to move, she growled. We had a talk & she moved & she has been given spots to lay that are her own.
“But, gosh, you smell so good, I would like to eat every inch of you, even your nose, do you think your nose would be crunchy?” asks Nala the Dog
“Yeah I think my nose would be crunchy, sometimes I want to rip out your eyeballs & slice them thinly, to put on top of goldfish crackers for a snack….maybe we ought to do what Mom says, since she fills our bowls with food.”Says Hobbes the cat.
