Good news from Sue!

Well eveyone.. Kya had been very depressed for the past month after losing her big sister, Teka.  Our vet told us that she needs a friend.  I am not ready for this but I went online to find husky rescue in PA.  We fell in love with this beautiful boy named LOBO.  We went to meet him after we were approved by the rescue. Heather will probably love this story for the wonderful person that you are fostering homeless dogs.  LOBO came to our home Thursday evening and we are keeping him.  He is five years old and was abandoned by his family.  He came to the rescue not understanding why he was there and very shy.  The rescue gave him nothing but and he came around.  I have not seen my dog Kya so happy in weeks!!  She loves him so much and he is so into her!!  Now our home has two females and two males!! Mike is very happy too!! 🙂  I cannot turn him away.  He needs a home and our baby needs a friend.  I hope you enjoy these pics!!

I have cried everyday since March 4th.  I actually didn’t cry today.  All my love to  everyone who wrote in when our Teka died.  I am sure that I will cry more, she was such an awesome dog.  But I need this right now, he is totally awesome!  And I know Teka would want Kya to have a friend for the remainder of her life.


UPDATE April 6th: Sue sent us a picture of Lobo showing his beautiful eyes.  “And yes he is spoiled,” she said,  “a couch dog already!!  Nothing but the best in this house for these amazing animals!!!  He fits right in!”

    My first dog,at only 8,was diagnosed with a terminal illness that 2 vets said there was nothing to do. A small dog should live twice that. He too was a rescue. He wasnt supposed to live thru Jan 2013 & here we are April 7. I’m on disability for treatment resistant depression and anxiety, so I’m terrified about how I’ll react and whether this will devastate me beyond repair. Very isolated so he’s really been a friend and for the first time in my life learned about unconditional love. Not working,I’ve spentore time with my pet than most. His belly is full of fluids and vets day trying to drain it would be expensive,temporary,require anesthesia and risk puncturing an organ. Logically I know its not my fault yet feel guilty .. Everyone’s told me Ive done what I can,rescued this dog, gave him a loving life. He’s not able to digest protein so he’s lost muscle & nutrients..weaker and losing fur. The fluid however is increasing his weight and he looks like he’s 15 months pregnant. I fear hell explode. Feel helpless ..don’t know when or if to put him down or how to tell if he’d suffering. Have to think he’s at least uncomfortable…but he’s still eating, likes to go for a walk and occasionally wags his ewhat to do…I will freak out anyway…can’t imahine taking him to be killed. OR putting him in a trash bag to be cremated
    .waking up and finding him listless. Told putting him to sleep — really murder—is an act of love..yet my existing in misery in physical and emotional doesn’t deserve the same as a canine. Go figure

      You have me in tears! You are not killing him/her. You are helping them die. When thy are suffering from this disease it is a kindness that you do for them. It hurts soooooooo very bad but to see such a beautiful companion suffer, hurts that much more. Eventually, this dog will tell you when it’s time for him/her to go and you will know. Our Teka couldn’t even get up anymore. When I touched her belly she screamed in pain. I am still crying J.S. She will always be our special angel. You are weighing on my mind right now. I am so sorry for you. Dont put your dog down. They will let you know when they are ready. And then you will know. God Bless Your J.S. and your beautiful love bun.

    That is great news, Sue and rescuing a innocent dog is the best thing a person can do and you chose a Chocolate Husky. He is a beauty, but does he have those blue eyes I love on a Husky? I can’t really tell in the photo…
    Sue, I felt like Kya would need another companion with Teka not being there but I know you would know to do that for her because of the love you have for her and knowing what she is going through too. She’s probably hurting just like you are and I’m sorry you still hurt but it takes time to heal from the pain and heartbreak. Crying helps because it releases your emotions. Sending you hugs because I know how much you are hurting and how much you miss Teka 🙁

      Thank you Rhonda! Cyberhug accepted with open arms!! Lobo has ice blue eyes. They even look lighter blue than Kya’s. He is chestnut, red and white. I will try to get a better picture to show his beautiful eyes and coloring. He just wags his tail constantly!! And Mike and I noticed this morning before we were leaving for work how Kya is bouncing back to our “happy” girl again. They play..!! 🙂
      Talk to you soon!!

    OMG Jenny he is awesome!! There is finally happiness back in our family. He wags his tail constantly!! Kya plays with him all the time!! This is an awesome Easter gift for us! This is the first time that we rescued. We have had Teka and Kya since they were 8 weeks old. I give every month to the ASPCA and the Humane Society but this is even better! I wish you could meet him. He is so social!! GOD bless him! Thanks for posting him! I want the world to see him too!! Love you my friend!! Happy Easter!
