How COOL is this thing??? I want one!!! There are two just sitting in boxes here. The hu-mom says that they are for the Sept. 15th Hike.
*SIGH* we never get to keep the cool stuff! She says who ever raises the most money in pledges gets one plus a whole bunch of other stuff and the third most pledges gets one too.. Wonder what those folk in the middle get? hmmm... Will need to check out the stuff on the table more.

PS. isn't that dog cute in the photo? The guy in Colorado who donated them.. that is his husky Takoda!
Follow-up phone calls:
Need a few people that are willing to make 4-5 calls a month to check up on dogs that have been adopted out already. Follow up ensures that the alumni dogs are doing well and that they are not in need or having behavior issues. Requires up to 2 hours or so a month.
Owner surrender phone calls and e-mails:
We need a few people that are willing to retrieve voicemails and make a few phone calls a week to people who want to surrender their dogs to rescue. Your job is trying to persuade them to NOT take the dog to a shelter but rather to work with our Owner Surrender Program and take the dog on approved adoptions, the same adoptions our foster dogs go to. Requires maybe 2 hours a week.
Shelter intake callers and website checkers:
Your job is to call and ask shelters that we work with if they have any huskies that can be listed on our site and the intake list that is distributed weekly. This is a very important list that we refer adopters to shelters that have dogs in need and we also pick foster dogs from this list. This job requires an hour or so a week.
Person of the highest qualification to go to foster homes and sanitize their yard. Will need to be friendly and bring their own scooper. Must be able to deal with lots of poop and remember to watch where they walk.
Disclaimer: One of these jobs is a hoax but the others are positions are available. Can you guess which is which? Please help out today!
If you would like to help rescue… it is more than just fostering. Contact your local rescue group today! If you live in NY, PA, NJ, DE, WV, MD, or CT consider giving the folks at Tails of the Tundra a shout! They helped me… who will be next?

Hey Bloggin Buddies!
I hope you all have been having fun checking in here with all my rescue pals. I figured I’d drop in and give everyone an update!
I am doing REALLY REALLY GREAT! Imoya is a LOT of fun and I have been feeling more and more comfy playing with her and the humans here.
We go on car rides and sometimes I just get to chill out! Oh and for fun just two Saturday’s ago Imoya and I decided to play in the morning. And when I say morning.. I mean 5 am! Dad came down to see what the ruckus was about. I told him we were just having some FUN!
Thanks again everyone! Keep checking in here for new on me and my buddies!

So yesterday I woke up with poo all in my crate and then went a few more times outside and my momma said it had "red stuff" in it.....so she rushed me off to "the vet." Well the vet made me stay for all night! I missed my foster pals Pia and Roan and all my brothers and sisters so much that when mom called at 10 last night to check on my she heard me SCREAMING:)Anyway, I am home now and when she came to pick me up she noticed I had two pathetically shaved front paws. So...she asked what happed. The vet techs sqeeled on me that I chewed the first IV out and they had to put in a second and then they put this big coney thingy on my head...THATS why I was screaming....what the dog is that thing????? The other vet tech also told mom I was a "rocket scientist in a evil villanous way." Why whatever could he mean? He told mom that when he was setting up my IV fluids this morning I watched his every move and then when he left I prompty got ahold of the bag of fluids and chewed through then.....my side of the story is I was just thirsty and wanted to drink them in faster then he was allowing:) So he had to re-hang them and put them on a pole away from my cage.....I then turned my back to him and gave him my tush with my face to the back of the kennel (thats what I do when I am mad). They all loved me at the vet and said I am quite the "comedian" whatever that means.....I am just glad to be home and want to know when I won't look like a poodle anymore!

Anyway, my nice friends here at Tails came to my rescue and saved me and my new foster moms name is Aunty Jodi....she has lots of fun dogs to play with and a big backyard too! She says I am a sweet big blockhead and she likes me lots....I am now looking for my furever home and she said she will make POSITIVE it is nobody with any bad newspaper thoughts:) Right now I am still not nootered (whatever that means) and so I like to play "games" with the girls here, they get grouchy with me sometimes about that....dang women:)I am having a good time here until I find that final spot.....maybe I will write yall back soon!

MY SIDE OF THE STORY:
So I was playing with Noa and Sonic and all of a sudden a giant hawk picked me up and almost ate me. Just before I was hawk breakfast my brothers scared the hawk and he dropped me in the sink. I had no choice but to stay there and clean the dishes. She should be grateful...what nerve she had to chase me away. I had to stand there giving her my classic "nobody's home" blank stare as I was frightened that the giant prey driven bird would come back and scoop me up. Why does she never understand these things?!
MY FOSTER MOM'S SIDE OF THE STORY:
I was a little bit of a slacker last night and left some pots in the sink. This morning Dyani was feeling extra mischievous, especially now that she is more reliable with her potty training and has an ounce of freedom. She was playing with the boys (which always spells trouble) and all of a sudden I hear clanking in my kitchen. On occasion the dogs have taken Tupperware and things out fo the sink. I told them to leave it and heard nothing else. Not ten seconds later I hear clanking again and go to investigate. I look around the kitchen and see no dogs...I was about to turn around and leave and then that little witch caught my eye. She was STANDING on the COUNTER! Yes STANDING on the COUNTER with her head in the sink licking the pots. I told her to get off and she look at me as though I was nuts (with her blank stare that makes you think she is really not all that smart BTW) and ran down the counter to flea. Right over the STOVE! Needless to say I picked her up and put her on the floor and shamed her profusely through my laughter. That was more than counter surfing it was like counter boating. UGH!
I don't know.. but I think that Hawk was pretty darn scary!

1. Foster mom Paige
2. Khyra ;)
7. Summit the Super Mal
10. Marilyn and the Hubley Hooligans
Darn it! I know there were more!! Okay more on that later...
But I wanted to share this one email that was pawed over to me by some pals in rescue about two dogs who found a fur-ever home together: Goeshe and Huron. If you recall Huron had a $5000+ surgery to fix his eyes. And Shay... well he was just Shay!
Anywoo.. it sounds like they found a WONDERFUL home!
Their humans wrote:
As for the boys, they are doing fine. Cheyenne is a good boy, the first, usually to settle down although he will initiate the play period on his own as well. It's interesting to see them with each other's hair in their mouths, especially Shay since Cheyenne is so fuzzy, when they do play (and play is an understatement!
The boys appear to be good with strangers and accepting, at least
