Wooooooowoooooooooo! That’s snow pup singing for Hello! My name is Kuruk, Ku for short. That means Bear in Pawnee – at least that’s what my Mama says. She says I am her Babybear because I will never be as big as a real bear. I was given this name by the nice people who rescued me from a puppy mill in Alaska in January 2011.
My first year of life was very tragic and traumatic, but since my Mama adopted me I have healed and overcome a lot. Mama says I was like a feral wolf, but now I love kisses and back rubs! Woooooowo00000oo!
I am still a little shy sometimes, so I was a little nervous about starting a blog and posting my Haiku. I have always thought thoughts in Haiku. I don’t know why. Maybe I was a Japanese Akita in a past life, but in this life I am an Alaskan Malamute. I’m a wooly too, which means I have longer fluffier fur.
Mama is very kind to type everything for me. My paws are too big to type. I seem to press several keys at once. My spelling isn’t very good either since I never went to puppy school. So Mama hears my Haiku when they come (they flow naturally for me at random times) and writes them down. Since I am a pup, I cannot speak like people, but I speak telepathy and Mama can hear that.
As you can tell my Mama is the bestest. Sometimes she kisses me too much though, but I let her because she’s my Mama. I have a snow pup sister named Nalle. That means Bear too. She’s a little younger than me, but she still thinks she’s a baby pup. Nalle is a rescued pup too, but her situation was not a bad one. In Spring 2014 Nalle decided to go to school to become an Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) pup, and now she goes to work as Nurse Nalle! She shares a blog on Mama’s Animal Healing site, which you can check out here. I also have a kitty sister, the great and famous Swami Zoe, who likes to tickle my ears with kisses and licks, and for three years I had a kitty brother, Apollo, the little lion man. RIP my big little brofur!
I hope you enjoy my Haiku, and thank you for visiting. Wooooooowooooooo!
