An adoption and a foster.......

So yesterday BLD got his forever home!!!! He was being fostered by my friend Julia and her family for about three months and Saturday they made it official. If you've been reading my blog for awhile you know his story....that his leg was broken by a kick or a bat and he had a very long recuperation time along with two surgeries to get him walking again. He never once was in a bad mood, still loved people. I think he is going to be so happy!!!! What do you think???

About to go to his forever home!!!

A boy and his dog!!!!!
We spent a lot of time on that boy and I know that he and Nathan especially will have a wonderful time together. I know where you live so I'm gonna visit my boy every now and then!!!!
We had another piece of good news yesterday. On of our adopters decided her boy was lonely so she came to pick a companion for him. Our director had me show her a couple of the girls, but from the beginning she was asking to see Bianca. So I showed her Bianca.....that was it!!! I should have done that from the beginning!!! Bianca and Zane got along really well...hopefully she will love her and adopt....we shall see!!! Be on your best behavior Bianca!!!
Zane , left......Bianca, right
I like good news days!!!!
Have a great afternoon......

Fun Day......

We had a great time last Friday!!! Unfortunately I screwed up big time. Thursday night I thought I put my camera in my bag, my phone camera doesn't work, but I left it at home....so I don't have any pics of the day to post here....you could have seen us in our ton of TV make-up!!!! I will have the feed of the show next month so I will post it here. Daddy-O and Iniki were the most fabulous dogs.....not one single problem from them either up or back...and they were perfect on TV, they get to go with us everywhere, just kidding. I hope we got the info out...it was important. That was a super long day...thanks so much to Denise for driving.
I do have some pics of our event last Sunday. We were invited to go to a new Unleashed, these are smaller stores owned by Petco....they have many of the same things, but also have a bathing area for your dogs.We had a good time there....we will go back anytime. Daddy-O got to go for another outing, and Becky brought Gunter. Angelica also brought Harvey and Ulla from In the Name of Zoey. I hope to get at least a couple of volunteers and also hoping for some adoptions.....we shall see!!!!

Tomorrow.....

I'm a little bit nervous. My friend Denise, along with Iniki and Daddy-O will be going to Dallas tomorrow to be on the TV show 'For the Love of Dogs'. I haven't been on TV for many years....I was younger, prettier and thinner!!! But this time I will be able to talk about my passion....rescue.

Iniki
Wish us luck....I'm happy to have the opportunity to talk about Husky Haven to a wider audience. If the interview is good I should be able to hook it up with my blog....we'll see!!!
Have a great day.....talk to you soon!!!

Miss Kloe......

So a couple of weeks age we rescued little Kloe from animal control. She was a baby a few months old.....picked up by herself. Animal control is not a real good place for puppies....especially without mom and the immunity they get from her milk. She seemed okay and we got someone to step up to foster her!!!! We had her for the next few days and she was good....but then she woke up with a snotty nose and wouldn't eat or drink, and was terribly lethargic. That usually means something bad from distemper to parvo.....you keep your fingers crossed that it is only an upper respiratory infection. We feed her by had but she wasn't hungry and not drinking was bad. We got her on some meds and hoped for the best. The first few days were not good , although she started drinking water and was at least moving around. Last weekend she started improving....I had her out on the lawn and she was running when I decided to give her a cookie.....and she ate it...and three or four others. After that she started playing, drinking and eating....she still had a bit of a stuffy nose.....but much better. I hope we dodged the parvo or distemper....she is still on meds.


I know she's not a pure husky....but she's very cute!!!! Her fosters came and picked her up today....hopefully she will contintue to improve!!!! We wish her the very best.....
You have a great Saturday!!!!

Vintage Park.....Once More

So last Sunday we were at Vintage Park again.....I like it because it's kind of informal and we're only there for four hours!!! I decided to take one of the dogs that doesn't get out much, Daddy-O. He's super sweet and I can't figure out why he hasn't been adopted. He was pretty stinky and blowing coat so my friend and I decided to give him a bath on Saturday. We took him to this place that has indoor baths and warm water, they also supply the shampoo and towels. In the bath next to us was a Samoyed , another double coated dog. By the end of the bath there was so much fur, I felt really bad for the girl working there. We offered to help clean up, but she said it was her job, not to worry.....but it was a mess...I hope they will let us back!!!! On Sunday, it was really crappy weather and we didn't know if it was going to rain. It didn't so we went. It was terribly cold and windy though. We were supposed to meet up with our friends from In the Name of Zoey, but I got a text that their parrot flew out the back door and they couldn't leave him....so it was just Husky Haven. We did have Izzy show up from In the Name of Zoey with her foster mom!!!We had Silver and Wayne along with Daddy-O, but not too many people showed up because of the weather.

Izzy......from In the Name of Zoey

Izzy again...she is such a sweet girl!!!!
I was freezing my butt off, and decided that since the other guys weren't coming....besides Izzy, that we'd call it a day at four. Around three the wind started getting really bad....I was fearing for our tent....when a huge gust came and took our tent down the walkway towards the parking lot!!! Luckily everyone in Natural Pawz came running out to help us grab it before anyone got hurt!!!! At that point I looked at the girls and asked them if we were over for the day.....they said yes. I was happy that it was such a terrible day....hardly anyone was walking around.....that tent would have hurt. Note to self.....get the weights from Cyndii!!!! So that was our fun day.....gonna do it again tomorrow.....hopefully without incident!!!
Have a great day!!!!!

Sorry......

So many jobs this week....can't believe another week has gone by!!!! I have some really good foster stories to share with you today.....
A couple of weeks ago my ex-boyfriend sent me a pic and a story about a lost Husky....his name is Sydney and he was found wandering around Houston. The lady who found him had him checked out , he was heartworm negative and in good condition.....just very underweight. We figured he'd been out on the streets for awhile.His name was on his collar, but of course no chip or any other ID. I posted him immediately to Husky Haven FB....and we got a foster for him in a few hours!!!! One of our previous adopters decided to take Sydney in and get him a great foster home till we can find him something permanent.


This is Sydney and Bear in their backyard!!!! Bear is the black and white and I guess you can guess who Syd is!!! It's so great to have some adopters that will help out in a short amount of time!!!
Now Jyll I've talked about a little before. She is the girl we got a couple of years ago that didn't have a hair on her. Part was mange....part probably burns.....but it took a long time for her to look ok. She still has areas that are scarred...will probably never clear up.


I don't have a really good pic of her, but you can tell on her legs she has lots of scars.....anyway, last Saturday a guy came over to fill out some paperwork....he was going to take a dog in one of the shelters. He looked around and decided that he would at least foster until that went through. He asked me what girl was in most need and I said Jyll. Well he took her home that day and she is fitting in well with his other two Huskies. He is still trying to see if that other dog will work with his pack....but for now Jyll has a wonderful place to live. It was so exciting...all of us there that day were so happy!!!!
So that's my stories for today.....I am going to push myself to write more often!!!
Have a wonderful day......

Some Stuff.....

Busy, busy week....but back to posting!!!! So first a little bitching!!! Last week I thought this terrible winter was over....we actually had a couple of days in the 70's!!! That all stopped Sunday, when I got up to take care of dogs it was in the 20's and raining....crazy. This is what it looked like Tuesday morning....
Yes, people that is ice all over those trees....I live in Houston, not supposed to be happening in March. Luckily the temps have gone up, we are no longer freezing and I hope that's it....I just can't handle it!!! Okay...I'm done with that.
Sunday night I went to help with the dogs and we had some previous adopters there. They had decided to pick Solomon.....so glad he is finally getting his chance. Like I said they've had Huskies before, so they know what to expect. I forgot my camera...wasn't expecting anyone....but their son gave me his phone so I could get a pic before they left.
Solomon has decided to be a lap dog....they really didn't care either!!!! So glad for him, their son is going to work at training him....so happy!!!
One last thing for today....Happy Birthday son....have a great time tonight....love you.
Have a great evening......
