Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could by Ku (that’s Me!):

One rescue pup’s story about his healing journey across three thousand miles, beginning with his days on a chain in a puppy mill in Alaska, across the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, into the loving arms of his Mama, and down the coast with his pack to California. A journey filled with sadness, fear, worry, and anxiety, but through it all and with the love and support of humans and other rescue pups, he knew he could do it!

You can order it through Create Space or Amazon (including eBook!) or Barnes & Noble. Also: Amazon CanadaAmazon UKAmazon India, and other international Amazon stores.

The purpose of my book about the story of my rescue is to raise awareness about puppy mills and animal abuse.

My book is not too long, includes some haiku, and it is written suitably for the reading pleasure of both children and adults. Please help support our cause!

Feel free to re-blog and help spread the word. All is greatly appreciated!

Thank yooowooowoooooo and Merry Christmas! Ku

Me working on my chapter.

Woooooooowooooooooooo! I’m a lucky pup because I get to write another chapter fur Rocco’s NaNoWoofMo where pet bloggers collaborate (Mama had to help me with that word!) to write our furry own novel! Woooowooooo! There are still spots open. So grab your Mama or Papa by the leash and head on over to Rocco’s House here to sign up!

If you need to catch up on the story, here’s where you can find previous sections:

1) Rocco
2) Ku
3) Hailey and Zaphod
4) Bongo
5) SwamiZoe (my sisfur!)
6) Easy

7) Daisy

And here’s today’s chapter…

There were eight look-a-likes in all! Who were they and what were they all doing in the forest? Before I could bark, the alpha dog stepped right up to my nose and growled. My instinct took over and I growled back, the fiercest, deepest growl I’ve ever growled!

This frightened all of them and they cowered back a few feet. “Who are you?” the alpha dog asked.

“My name is Marvin,” I said, “and I want to live free like my ancestors! I am part Siberian Husky so I think I can figure out how to hunt and make a cozy den in the ground.”

One of the others, a cute female, spoke up, “We all are out here on our own too. We’ve formed our own pack and I’d be delighted if you joined us. My name is Bella and I’m the real Alpha, just like our ancestors had a female as the alpha of their packs. Grumpy here is my little brother. He’s only two and doesn’t know how to behave yet.” As she gave a piercing look towards Grumpy.

Oh pup, my very own pack! We decided to call ourselves the K9 Gang since there were now 9 of us. It was getting late, and we all fell fast asleep. I was in the middle of a dream about me and Bella romping through a field of wildflowers when I was shaken awake. Efurrybuddy jumped up startled, but the shaking didn’t stop. It was an EARTHQUAKE! Terrified we all scattered into the forest and when everything settled I was once again alone.

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo” I howled out like my ancestors, and I waited fur a response…

Next chapter will be by Kari!

NaNoWoofMo is Here Again!

I’m not just a poet and author, I’m a novelist tooowoowooooo!

Wooohoooowooooo Efurrybuddy! It’s November and that means it’s NaNoWoofMo – National Novel Wooofing (or Woooo-ing if you’re a snow pup like me!) Month! And just like last year I am pawticipating in Rocco’s round robin bloggy a novel around the bloggy world. WOL! That means any pet blogger (you don’t have to be a pup) can pawticipate by writing a chapter/post fur one day of the month. He still needs lots of sign-ups so clicky on over to Rocco’s House here to add yourself to the list and to read the first entry into our pet novel!

Here is the next chapter…

I missed my master, but I was also happy to be away from his son. A dog is a pawesome people-energy detector. Now as I detect my way around my new strange surroundings with my nose…sniffs the air…BACON! The drool-inducing scent was wafting around in the breeze which made it hard to figure out what direction it was coming from. Oh pup, was I getting hungry!

Off in the distance I could see a little red farm house. I knew bacon came from frying pans in kitchens, so that had to be the source. I headed towards the house leaving a trail of pee-mail just in case I needed to find my way back. It didn’t take long to reach the farmhouse, but as I approached I saw that it was surrounded by a wire fence. “What should I do?” I thought.

Next chapter will be by Hailey and Zaphod! All entries will be listed over at Rocco’s House here!

The Blessing of the Animals!

Grace Cathedral

Me and Nalle sat

And listened to the service

For a whole hour

 

We had gone to church today

To bless all the animals

 

 

 

 

 

Wooooohoooowoooooo Efurrybuddy! In honor of the Feast of Saint Francis yesterday, many churches in the this city named fur Saint Francis had services fur the Blessing of the Animals. That means we went to church! Not just any ol’ church, but the big big beauwooowooootiful Grace Cathedral. We were a little too excited fur Mama to take too many piccies, but if you want to see some pawesome piccies of the cathedral, including it’s beauwoooowoooootiful stained glass, the big labyrinth, and many many murals, clicky on over to our photography bloggy here and here!

Me and Nalle had never been to a church before, nor had we been to a Mass before, but we behaved furry furry good. I paid attention constantly. Nalle laid down on the super coowooowooool stone floor (it’s been up to 90°F/32°C here fur days!), and looked like she wasn’t paying attention, but when the priest asked if anyone was familiar with a certain book about animals, she said: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That made efurrybuddy in the chapel smile and laugh! WOL! Mama had no idea that Nalle was reading so much! Going to therapy pup school has sure paid off fur Nalle! WOL! Here are some piccies:

El Camino Real was the royal road the Spanish missionaries made/took when they established all the missions in California (when it was part of Spain).
