Our Furst Camping Trip!

Me ready to lead Mama and Nalle into the redwood forest!

Hiking the trails

Sleeping in the forest deep

Camping pups we are!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I suppose I should tell efurrybuddy that I am prepping Mama and Nalle to go on a backpacking trip. Youwoowooooo heard me right! I am an outdoorsy pup. I grew up in Alaska after all, and as you can tell from some of my bloggy posts about our adventures traveling and hiking, I wuvwuvwuvwuvwuv being on the trails. So furst I tested Mama and Nalle with the tent-den by sleeping in it in the backyard fur a night. They did furry good. Then I got Mama to do research fur a camping spot in the forest with some good trails so I could see how they would do sleeping all night in the wilds and so we could simulate backpacking with lots of hiking. They did furry, furry goods tooowoowoowooooooo! Next I needs to train Mama and Nalle to do longer and longer hikes so when we are backpacking, they can keep up with me!

Here are piccies from our furst camping trip in the Redwoods in Marin County:

The Redwoods are furry tall!

Furry beauwoowoootiful sunlight through the Redwoods!

Thanks fur joining us! Mama and Nalle did furry good, huh?

And fur those who may have noticed, Facebookie discovered I had a profile. Now I am a published author, poet, blogger, calendar pin-up, and movie star, and I think it’s not fair that I can’t have a Facebookie profile. WOOO! However, I do has my Haiku By Ku page and now my Kuruk Babybear page has replaced my profile, so please stop on by and like me! Thank youwooooowoooooooo!

Rescue-versary!

Me furry furry happy!

Rescue-versary

A wonderful day indeed

I have come so far!

 

Woooohooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! Today and tomorrow are furry special days fur me. You see, it was four years ago today that a pack of 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!

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. (depending on how often I gets BACON! and TURKEY! WOL!). My furs are no longer brittle and dry, but super duper fluff, fluff, fluff. I have come a furry long way in the past four 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!

Kuruk-_The_Little_Be_Cover_for_KindleI 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.

Did you know I was in a video about my rescue? Check it out below. Pawesome music tooowoowooo!

My Hedgehog…

From Mama: Don’t be alarmed. Ku does shop-lift a toy every time he goes to a pet store, but I do make sure to check and see if he has taken something off the shelves before we leave and pay for it. 🙂

NaNoWoofMo is Here Again!

photo 2

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!

Happy Birthday to My Sisfur Nalle!

photo 4-2Happy Birthday to you

Wooooooohoooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! Today is my sisfur’s 4th birthday! Wooooohooooowoooooooooo!

Remember how on National Doggie Day when we took Mama to a pet store and Nalle was sniff-shopping and she had her eye on a dinosaur bone? Well, Nalle said I could pick out a present fur her birthday this year instead. So I got Mama to stop in at another pet store during one of our longer walks by convincing her we just wanted to stop in fur some water and free treats. WOL! Well, to Mama’s surprise I picked out a pretzel sharkie fur Nalle’s birthday present! And then I carried it all the way home – 1.5 miles! – fur my sisfur.

Bye-bye pet store! Thanks fur the free treats and the sharkie!

Doggie Day Care…

KuDayCare

Me furry scared my first day at day care.

We went to day care

Fur the first time last weekend

I was furry scared

 

But Nalle stayed by my side

And then I got brave and played

 

Hewwoooooo Efurrybuddy! This past weekend Me and Nalle went to doggie day care fur both Saturday and Sunday. Mama was working at a Fair and thought it would be best if we had lots of pups to play with all day instead of leaving us alone at home fur hours and hours and hours. We never went to day care before, nor had we ever been without Mama fur such long, long, long treacherous amounts of time. (Before Nalle became my sisfur, Mama once went away fur a couple of days, but I had a cuuwoowooooote babysitter in my own home.)

The first day, Mama talked to us on the drive there, and she told Nalle to watch over me and stay by my side to help me feel less anxious. Here’s what the report card said fur day one:

DayCare1

Nalle listened to Mama!

The second morning, Mama talked to us in the car again, and said I would be more comfortable and will have lots of fun playing with other pups. Here’s the report card fur day two:

DayCare2

Mama was so right!

Day care was not so bad. I would go again, but prefer to be with my Mama. 😀  Wooooooowoooooooooo!

Nalle singing her heart out at day care! Wooooooooooooooooo!

Pawesome tummy rubs

Warm hands rub and soothe

Soft caress of fur and skin

Love revealed in touch

I grab Mama’s legs

When she tries to walk past me

More tummy rubs please!

Legs and back stretch out

Eyes closed, mouth wide, tongue peaking

Please don’t ever stop

They’re the bestest thing

I will never get enough

Belly-tummy rubs

Lovely, heavenly

Wonderful and marvelous

Belly rubs are best 

Almost as good are

Rubs behind the ears and chin

Back massages too

Fingers deep in fur

Soft and thick and fluffy too

I’d purr if I could

Thank you, thank youwoowoooooooo Misaki! If anybuddy, even if you are not a Malamute, wants to jam with me, just send me or Mama an email here.
