Wooohooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! Remember how last year Mama took me and Nalle to Grace Cathedral for the Feast of Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals, and the Blessing of the Animals fur World Animal Day?!? Here is a link to last year’s piccies and story. This year we went again, and it was just as pawesome! Here are some piccies of the Cathedral, but there are much better ones, including the Chartes Cathedral inspired labyrinth here on our photography bloggy.

Bye-bye Beauwoowoootiful Grace!

Here is the furry beauwoowooootiful Pawrayer of Saint Francis and Susan Boyle singing it:

Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring you love,
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord,
And where there’s doubt, true faith in you.
Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope,
Where there is darkness, only light,
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.
Oh Master grant that I may never seek,
So much to be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all men that we receive,
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.

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!

The Blessing of the Animals!

photo-4-4

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:

Happy Happy World Animal Day!

World Animal Day

Is there any other day?

Love is here always

 

For the love of animals

Is unconditional love

 

Wooohooooooooowoooooooo Efurrybuddy! Besides World Animal Day, today is also the Feast of Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals. Mama wrote about him and his beauwooowoooootiful prayer on her bloggy. Check it out and listen to the prayer sung by the angelic voice of Susan Boyle here!

Tomorrow Mama is taking us to Grace Cathedral to be blessed fur the Blessing of the Animals in this city of Saint Francis! Me and Nalle will try to pose fur piccies, so stay tuned! Woooooooowooooooooooo!

Me and My Kitty Sisfur…

Eventhough Sisfur Zoe had the Grand Paw and kitty cousin Callie to be with, she missed us so furry furry much while Me and Mama and Nalle were on our trip. I maybe missed my sisfur too. I’ve even asked let her kissie my nose and cheeks and lickie my snout and ears since we got back without a grumble (it tickles!).

Prayers For Apollo…

My big brofur Apollo

Please send love and prayers

To my brofur Apollo

His hind legs don’t work

 

 

 

Hey Efurrybuddy, some of you know from my Facebook page, but my big brofur Apollo is not doing well. He is Siamese and was born with hip dysplasia. Mama did lots of kitty PT (physical therapy) and Reiki healing with him when he was a baby (and when needed since), and that helped him to have a very active life of tree-climbing and adventures. But the past two years his hips have been increasingly arthritic, and this past week he has not been able to use his hind legs much if at all.

He’s a tough guy though and will just drag his legs behind him to get places, but Mama has been carrying him to the bathroom, and the food dish, and his chair, and out into the garden to sunbathe, which he wuvswuvswuvs, and where he dreams of his divine fiancé Dinnermintz!

Please send prayers, pawyers, and purrrayers fur my handsome blue eyes lion man big brofur Apollo. He is a Sun god in Mama’s eyes!

The Sun Dog Drift

Storm-2 A few weeks ago when the sun was shining we had special visitors at Sundog.   Storm This smile is proof bloggers are real and not just phantom words and images that respond to my posts.  If you are a blogger who follows “The Drift”  you may know who this is.  Especially if you follow her blogs.  Let me introduce you to Julianne Victoria of  “Through The Peacocks Eyes” (astrology),  San Francisco Photo Blog” ” Haiku by Ku” (her rescue dog Ku’s blog)  and “Swami Zoe Yoga and Zen” (her cat’s blog). Storm-50 Yes she has FOUR blogs.   Besides being a blogger and astrologer, Julianne or Julie has special healing powers.  Storm-52 Mr. Lassen could feel it right away. Storm-51 When she visited the horses. They immediately began to lick and chew, yawn and stretch their necks in weird ways.   In horse language it means they are thinking and releasing some kind of energy. …
