Some of y'all might remember name that Husky I saved
« on: June 21, 2006, 07:26:39 PM »
It has been a long long time since I brought her up....but as I sit here watching my older husky rescue and the young play....to most they are fighting.  Huskies play very rough.  Remembe she was so abused she was scaird of her own shawdow, or even the slightest noise.  Well she has turned out to be a husky with lots of patience, work, and overlooking accidents etc. Just a lot of work from me and my fabulous best friend who lives with me in Atlanta.

She is still scared of strangers but gets curious about them.  This will take more time.  She has finally shed that nasty coat she had and replaced it with a fur coat Saks Fith Avenue would be proud to sell.

The name I finally settled on was Baby Gurl....her older step brother is Bandit.  And he has been busy teaching her many things....from how to open doors....to how to fight...to how to steal food from me...not so sure on all that...but oh well.  However she is totally my dog when I am here.  She stays under my feet and looks to me for approval unless she is busy playing with Bandit.

Anyhow...this is not all about her....I can see the reflection of me...how far she has come and how far I have come.  It is simply fucking ( excuse my language) amazing.  I was this almost broken person 2 years ago, same as she was about a year ago when I saved her.  At the time...I could not even feed myself....much less my other husky...then I added another one.  The joy she has brought not to just me but my other husky and my best friend.  And to watch her blossom and move past all of her past abuses...well most of them...still working on little bit...but every day it is now moving forward.  At first it seem one step forward 3 steps back.  Yes I said 3 steps. 

If she can overcome.....I know I can.

What a beautiful animal...Gorgeous blue eyes.

I adopted a yorkiepoo that had been mistreated. Ive had her 3 yrs and shes still a little skittish but she is a

cutie. Have 2 other dogs, a german Shepherd that weighs over 100 lbs and a mutt, and the little dog is the

boss. Its funny to watch her and the other dogs. Its like the other dogs knew and they just put up with her

to build up her self esteem.

Oh I should mention some people here will remember when this whole HIV issue led me to loseing my job, to being just one short step from be homeless, to an amazing rebound.....to be very active in the EMA here in Atlanta, to going back to what I love doing...being a flight attendant. 

At the time when I took her in, it was only temporary as I could not afford to feed myself, however my dog (which became 2) I would take care of first....

anyhow you can find lots of pictures of them on my website... at

Such a wonderful story Trai,

My Kaiser (German Shephard) was on his way to be destroyed about the same time I was rejected by our society for having AIDS.  I had left the back door open and went back to bed he came running up jumped up on the bed.  I said Hey Hi you!  He has been with me for 8 years.

I took him to the neighborhood dog groomer that first day, they knew him.  He was in a studio apartment with 8 crystal meth people, was never fed, vocal cords had been cut, you could see every bone in his body.  He is bigger than the passenger seat of the car so when we take long road trips, I modify the seat to make room.  Have the best day

Love the pictures of Bandit and Baby Gurl. 

But who rescued who?  It looks to me like Bandit is one happy puppy!  A beautiful little sister and a handsome master.  It's a nice family.  YOu do have a lot to be proud of

T Rai, my older son adopted an abused stray about three years ago. He's done an amazing job with Luna and she's gone from being fearful and skittish to having a wonderful life.

It's such an up to see her romping and playing and knowing that at one time she had been abused and was living on the street with a short life span likely. Now she is loved and cared for and having a grand old time.

When she's really excited like when he brings her to visit me, she does a rapid circle dance and is totally in heaven having both of her main guys together with her. We spent Father's Day with her in two last Sunday, mountain climbing, tossing a stick into a lake for her to fetch and me sneaking her dog yummies in the car.

A perfect example of how life can get turned around a good way.

Cheers for you and your big ol' dawgs,

Andy Velez

trai,
She is beautiful. You saved each other. I have 4 rescues, and I love watching them play and romp around the yard. And on days that I am not feeling well, it is a reason for me to get out of bed, and focus on something other than me. It is also amazing to watch another dog teach the new dog the rules of the house. Thanks for sharing her.
