My Re-Birthday & Rescueversary!

Furry Happy and Handsome Me!

‘Twas five years ago

That I was freed from the chain

Bound almost two years

 

I’ve gained fifty pounds since then

And travelled four thousand miles!

 

 

Wooohoooowooooooooo Efurrybuddy! Me and sisfur Nalle and Mamaclickyfingerssecretary were too busy on a hiking adventure to bloggy about this sooner, but two days ago on 1-11 I had my Re-Birthday and Rescueversary! Wooooooooowoooooooooooo! Fur those who do not know my past:

One cold Alaska day five years ago, some strange humans came to see me and my pack of nearly 170 Alaskan Malamutes at a puppy mill in Alaska. They were shocked by what they found – no food, no water, all the snow eaten that we could reach from our four-foot chains, and sadly some deceased members of my pack. The next day on 1-11-11, they came back, removed us from our chains, and took us to a shelter to help us get medical care, food, water, and hopefully real homes! They were true angels that came on that angelic number day!

The dogters in Alaska thought I was about 2 years old based on my teeth and only weighed 35 lbs! Today I weigh about 85 lbs. My furs are no longer brittle and dry, but super duper fluff, fluff, fluff. I have come a furry long way in the past five years, especially when it comes to being social with strange humans. Nobuddy would know now that I was “like a feral wolf” as my Mama says. It is Mama’s magical healing wuvwuvwuv that helped to heal so much!

Lake 22 Kuruk's 4th hike 5.20.11 005

Me in 2011 after my rescue when I was in foster care.

I tell the full story of my healing journey in my bookie: Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could, One Rescue Pup’s Journey of Healing. The purpose of my book about the story of my rescue is to raise awareness about puppy mills and animal abuse. You can order it through Create Space or Amazon (including eBook!) or Barnes & Noble or by clicking the picture of my book cover! Also: Amazon CanadaAmazon UKAmazon India, and other international Amazon stores.

I have moved from Alaska to Washington to Northern California, and now I live in Southern California in a place where I can go to the beach or hike in the mountains efurryday! Wooooowooooooooo! Here are some piccie from our our new home and latest adventures, but scroll through my bloggy to see more or follow Mama’s Instagram here (where she sometimes often posts piccies of Me and Nalle)!

My First Bloggyversary!

BirthdayKU

Pawty Time!

Blogging fur a year

Can’t believe it’s been that long

Posting my haiku

 

Thank you all my bloggy friends

Couldn’t do it without you!

 

 

Wooooohoooooowooooooooo Efurrybuddy! Can you believe it? I started my bloggy a year ago on April 1st 2013 with my pawticipation in the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), posting a haiku a day. If I could turn back time, I would do it all again! I was so proud of accomplishing that, that I posted nearly efurryday until February when I went into semi-bloggy retirement. My poetic pup heart can’t stay away from sharing my haiku, but now I also have time to take Mama and sisfur Nalle on new adventures! Wooooowooooooo!

And just in time fur the pawty, Mama surprised me with the announcement that I won some prizes from Miss Jan and the Wag ‘N Woof Pets! Do click on over. They are all fur the love of pets! Wooooowoooooo! How did I win these prizes you ask? Well, Luke, one of the Wag ‘N Woofs was having a contest to see if any buddy could guess his DNA. No one guessed all three breeds, but many were close, and I won the random draw! Woooowoooooooo! I won 2 gift certificates to The Greater Good Animal Rescue Site. It’s a pawesome site where you can buy lots of pawesome stuff fur you or your pawrents, and they help other animals and people in need! I told Mama clicky fingers secretary to use the gift cards to get something fur herself since she works fur me fur free. Mama deserves it! I wuvwuvwuvwuv you Mama!!! Here are all the pawesome prizes me and my furblings got:
