Enjoy, this will be the only picture of a family member you will see on my blog. Although, I would love to show off my beautiful family, I am a bit leery of putting my pictures out there for some unseemly individual to get their hands on.
Wolf is my Siberian Husky. He is 10 years old. We bought him when my daughter was not even one. I was a bit nervous, but he was wonderful with her and IS still wonderful around children.
So gentle. Just look at those blue eyes!
Poor Wolf – he looks like a wolf, doesn't he, got hit by a car while my husband was walking him. He was just a puppy and very playful. It was a rainy day and he was on a leash. But the leash got caught on a bush and he emerged FREE! He was so excited. My husband made the mistake to lunge at him and Wolf took off into the street right in front of a car.
The driver was so upset, he offered to pay for medical expenses. My husband, knowing it wasn't this man's fault did not accept. My husband drove Wolf to the vet, which in turn told us he could do nothing for him. They transported him to a hospital in the city. They performed surgery and he was even in ICU for a while – I had no idea such a thing existed for animals. I was shocked to the extreme they went through to save him.
A few days and a couple of thousand dollars later, my dog was back home. My husband had to carry him down the stairs to walk him. Soon, he was well enough to do it on his own. In bad weather he feels his injuries. He walks with a limp and he struggles at times to lie down. His old age is creeping up on him and his arthritis must be excruciating. He takes Chondroitin for hs muscles. Other than that, he is great! He is still playful.
This picture was taken just last summer!
