Four Years Ago.......

On February 29th , 2012 I started my blog. It's been a lot of fun....had it's ups and downs. I was talking to myself the other day and lamenting the lack of stories from Husky Haven when Lizzy walked up to me......
Mom we have to talk.........
She reminded me that it's really her blog and that the rescue would be secondary........but that's not how it turned out. As I walk into year number five with my blog we will be changing a bit. My four beautiful kids will be the focus...they are my babies. Their lives will be what is primarily in my blog....Husky Haven will be there , but not at the top anymore. As Lizzy especially goes through her journey......I want to blog every minute. On to year five....I hope my girl is happy now!!!!
Thanks for reading....
Have a great evening....

Happy Birthday!!!

So today is my birthday.....not gonna say which one. Yesterday my girls, Barb and Becky, got me a beautiful gluten-free cake. Had some people over at the rescue so we had a little party....thank you girls and the rest of the volunteers!!!
The important birthday today is Miss Lizzy's. As in my last post I really wasn't expecting to reach this day with her. She is ten years old today!!! Of course I don't know if that's her real b-day , but she was born in February so close enough. Now my girl always gets some of the birthday goodies...here she is waiting patiently for her slice of cake......
Well kind of patiently.....she was pretty bummed when she knew I was going to take a video....

And a picture of the aftermath.....
She loved the cake and I am so glad we are both together this birthday....many more!!!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!

20 Months Ago....

In July of 2014 My Lizzy Girl got very sick. Took her to the E-Vet and tried to determine the problem. She had a tumor in her gut....like five inches long. Took her to Texas A and. M two weeks later to have that tumor removed. Tumor was benign....but cultures told me she had pancreatic cancer. She had 3-6 months to live. 2014 scared me to death....figured she wouldn't make it to 2015. Was so happy last February 14.....both of our b-days that she made it to nine years old. I think she will make to ten on Sunday. Don't know how....maybe good thoughts from all of you.....but 20 months.....
My girl today.....

Texas Wolfdog Project

This last Saturday got to visit the Texas Wolfdog Project. I have been wanting to check it out, but my schedule is usually pretty crazy....so this was the first time I made time to make it happen. My friend Denise and I went....meeting with my friend Elsie to attend a presentation. I really just wanted to see what my friend, Austin, had put together. A couple of years back he bought the five acres that the TWP sits....he also lives there to take care of the wolfdogs personally.
When you drive in it's absolutely beautiful....so peaceful!!
As you can see the enclosures are huge and have usually 2 wolfdogs together.....they have a large covered area inside and lots of room to roam around. I actually did learn that there are high content and low content wolfdogs.....with the low content , of course, being closer to dogs. In fact many of the low content wolfdogs reminded me of Huskies or Mals.



These guys just wanted a ton of love!!!!


There were so many people on Saturday that they didn't want people just wandering.....I understand...and we really couldn't stay for a tour.....but I hope to go back soon and spend more time checking out the wolfdogs. If you are interested in more info go to Texas Wolfdog Project and check it out.
Have a great evening....
See you soon.....
