I feel as though I must be in a world of trouble for not checking in. It's been crazy around here, as usual. HOWEVER, this time nobody is sick or havin surgery or losing teeth. Just normal busy stuff.
The weather is getting cooler, so that means that the white fluffy snow must be just around the corner. I can hardly wait to go out and play in it and plant my nose deep into it. It smells so crisp and clean.
How are all of you doing? I have enjoyed reading your posts recently.
I will get a hold of the computer tonight and post some pictures. I have a lot of them that are new and I hope you all enjoy them.
Talk to you all tonight,

School started so my boy is gone a lot more. I got used to him being home during the day with us. Oh well, now we can sleep without being bothered.
I got tagged for quite a few things. I am to woo about my humans. I'm going to have a difficult time with this since every time I turn around, my humom is taking me to the hospital and they make me fall asleep and when I wake up I'm in pain.
Just yesterday, we went to the hospital and when I woke up, a tooth was missing! My big long fang on the left side is gone! Where did it go? I dunno. I know my mouth hurts and I had a seizure and I keep falling down, but I don't know where my tooth is!
Mom says I look handsome without it, but I'm not convinced.
Dad is awesome cuz he plays with me a lot. He will get down on the floor and wrestle with me and run around the coffee table chasing me so I run too. It's a lot of fun.
Mom is pretty nice and she's always askin me for huggies and kisses. I get really excited when she does this and I dance around the room, bark, and jump on her before I give in. It's fun to see her laugh.
My foster mom, Janice, is really sweet. She still comes to visit me really often, which I love. If she hadn't taken me from the place in Misery, I would be a goner rigt now. I love her so much! She plays with me and brings me treats too!
Smokey isn't a human, but he's sure a good brother. We play tug of war and also run around the back yard together. It's a lot of fun.
Thank you all for being patient about me blogging. The humans moved the computer and I couldn't get to it. It's back in it's rightful place now though, so we're good to go.
Woo's to all,

Well, it's been a few weeks and I haven't eaten a single thing that I'm not sposed to. My human mom even went out and bought a new purse and wallet. She must not trust me because they don't come into the house. She leaves them in the van.
My fur isn't growing back and mom's found a new way to humiliate me. She calls it a zerbert. She gets down on the floor with me and puts her mouth on my shaved tummy and blows air out and it tickles a lot and makes a funny noise. She hasn't realized yet that I am not amused by this, so she does it frequently and then she laughs and giggles. How can I tell her that this behavior isn't funny? I don't want to hurt her feelings, but the other dogs in the neighbood are snickering at me. Any ideas?
I'm feeling really good lately and have more and more energy. Still not 100% but am pretty close to 98%.
I am still working on getting those pics on here for you all to enjoy, but the computer had some issues and the humans are taking their time with getting all the programs reloaded. I'm not sure what that means, but I know that it means I can't get pictures in there.
I will talk to you all soon!
Have a great mother's day!

I found dad's wallet in his nightstand (good nose) and pulled it out and ate it practically whole. My boy got home and found the night stand drawer to be open (gotta remember to close those things to not get caught) and called mom at work. They made me go to the doctors again, put something in my eye that made me throw up, and out came the wallet. (I've got pictures, it is GROSS). I'll put them on the blog as soon as I can.
Also, my dad's human mom passed away the Monday after Easter. Sure was a shock to the family, because she wasn't sick. Needless to say, they have needed me to be by them for kisses and moral support.
I apologize for being gone for so long again. I will get some pics up soon (of my healed tummy and wallet).
Hugs and drool to everyone!

I still wear out pretty quickly and sleep more than normal, but mom tells me that's normal.
Today, she left her bedroom door open for me so I can sleep in my favorite place - her bed.
There's not really much new here, except that I'm still healing. I wish the fur would grow back on my tummy a little faster. Mom always is touching my belly or kissing my belly. It's kinda weird.
Hope all is well with all of my furry friends!
Hugs and Drool,

Enough of the mushy stuff from me. I'm a strong manly husky. :>)
Well, my staples came out yesterday. It didn't hurt at all. I couldn't really even feel it. Then the surgeon, Dr. Thoesen, came in to see me and I gave him a kiss on the back of his head while he was looking at my belly. He says that we're in the clear! My health is restored. Hmmm, now what can I find to chew up? Mom and dad cleaned the house top to bottom and there's no fun stuff out for me anymore. This stinks.
Anyroo, I'm back and will be taking over the blogging from now on. Thank you for all being so kind to my mom during this stressful time. I know she was an emotional mess, but she's happy again and I get more hugs and kisses than ever!
Hugs and drool to all my furry friends out there. Sure did miss you all!

Here is Kelsey with his "poodle" paws.
Here's Kelsey on his blanket and pillow that he gets to use. There's one on each level of the house so he can be comfortable wherever he goes. This was taken about 5 minutes ago. Well, we're progressing slowly. He's eating more and is more active. However, I don't think we're completely out of the woods yet.
Thank you all again for all of your support through this. This blog site is such a great community for pet owners and pets to talk and get things off their chest. You are all very dear to me.

He's eating more and is taking his medications like a good boy.
We've been fortunate enough to have vacation time to stay home with him while he recovers. Don't want to come home to any "suprises" if you catch my drift.
I will get some pictures on the site this weekend. I am worn out emotionally and have experienced the let down of stress relief with his return home. I need one really great night of sleep and I'll be good as new. Right now though, I sleep like I did when my son was a newborn and wake up with each little sound.
We're still not 100% in the clear, but my prediction is a happy ending with a long life ahead.
Thank you all so much again for your well wishes. Please check back Sunday for pictures. I'll get a bunch of them and post them for you, just don't tell Kelsey I did it.

But, the BEST NEWS??????????
I get to pick him up and bring him home today!!!!
If he's up to it, I'll let him use the computer so he can thank you all himself for all the prayers and well wishes. We'll see how he's doing.

The vet had to give a medication to stimulate the intestines because after eating his "intestinal diet" he vomited after 5 hours.
He is shaved and I told him that the other huskies were going to call him a poodle. HA!
He looks so much better and made sure to slather my face with Kelsey kisses (oh how much I have missed that).
I spent about an hour with him today, but he's still at the hospital. Until he keeps food down, he can't come home.
Smokey smelled him on me though and finally ate and seemed to cheer up.
Home soon? I sure hope so.
I'll get some pics of him and post them soon.
Thank you all again!
Sunday, March 11, 2007
They changed his initial IV port in case that was the cause, so I guess time will tell.
On the upside, he's holding down water and he's not appearing to have any leakage from the intestinal repair, which is good. He is going to start to eat a ID (intestinal diet) food today at around 2:00, so again, time will tell.
I'm starting to feel like I'm going to lose my mind over this. All I do is cry and feel sick to my stomach. I just want him home again so that I can touch him and smell his fur and look into those beautiful blue eyes. I miss him so much.
Please continue to pray, and again thank you all so much for all of the prayers already made.

He's going to the bathroom all by himself (another huge thing).
We're still in the window of time where things can turn on us and go down hill (3-5 days) however, I'm trying not to let that be a thing I think about.
I will know more in the morning between 8 - 9 so I will update at that time.
I'm very proud to tell people and their pets that I'm a member of such an extraordinary group. You are the best friends that a dog and his mommy could ever have.
Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for all of your paw-rayers.
At 4:30 this morning, I woke up again (not sleeping real well) and called the emergency hospital where he is. His temperature has come down to 101.3, which is even lower than it was when we first arrived at the specialists office (102.6). The nurse there said that he's sitting up and standing to move around in his cage (oh how much I wish he were home on the bed with me), and that his foot swelled a bit from the coban wrap that is used to cover the IV, but she re-wrapped it and it is doing better.
So far, so good, but we're still in that window where all could fail. I am trying to think positive. I know he's a fighter and he's still got a lot of life in him.
Please continue to pray and cross those paws for him. I will update as I have more.
Thank you all so very much. This has been a sort of release for me too. If you ask Holly's mom, you'll know that Kelsey's mom is having an extremely hard time with all of this.
Smokey isn't dealing with it well either, so we're thinkin about a nice walk today since my foot's better.
UPDATE: The specialist just called and said that Kelsey's blood count and protein counts look really good and are holding steady. He is producing urine which is good and they took him outside to walk around a bit and he seems to be walking well.
He did vomit last night, but the Dr. said it was after they had given his IV antibiotic and it could have been from that or the obvious stress. He said that for all Kelsey's been through, he looks great.
He said that there didn't seem to be any fluid in his tummy (which is good) and that his temp is 103 at this time, but they had taken it after he was moving around and so he felt that to be ok.
They will check his temp every 3-4 hours and will continue IV fluids with pain management today and hopefully tomorrow or later tonight introduce water back in.
He said he would call me this afternoon around 5:00 pm with more updates. Sounds like he's in excellent hands, so the rest is up to Kelsey's sweet white body. I'll let you all know more as I have it.
Thanks again to all of you.

This is his incision. He obviously will be very sore after coming to.
UPDATE: I went and saw Kelsey after work tonight. He jumped out of his kennel at me and licked my face (the vet tech told me it would take two people to get him out - HA!) We went outside to try to pee (he keeps having to be catheratized) and instead of using the "facilities" he burrowed his head in a snow drift which he obviously missed.
After I left, he threw up again. I think it was just too much too soon. Tomorrow will be moist food, so we'll see.
I will keep you all posted on his progress.
Hugs and drool from Smokey and love and thanks from his family.
If you've ready Holly's blog, then you know that Kelsey is in the hospital. The purse he ate that got him into HULA and is pictured on Meeshka's blog from January 27, got him very sick and he had to have emergency surgery.
Holly's mom was kind enough to come and console me while I waited for his surgery to end so that I could see him. I did take some pictures and will post them later tonight when I get home from work.
As of right now, he's still in a large amount of pain. He's on pain meds and is drinking water without any problems. He won't urinate on his own though, so they have to catheterize him from time to time to empty his bladder. The last time produced 540 cc's, which is quite a lot.
The vet tech said that he's up walking around and has gotten so many kisses that the fur on his nose is gonna start thinning.
So far, there's no fever so that is an awesome sign of a full recovery. Time will tell. I've given it to God on my end, and ask that you pray for his full recovery. I will be Kelsey proofing the house and will be hiding all the purses, shoes, and anything else that might be tempting to chew on.
He will get soft food tomorrow if all goes well today and could possibly come home Saturday.
To those who have already crossed their paws for him, thank you! It means so much to me to know that so many of you are thinking of him.
My love to all of you sweet fur babies and remember that just because it's fun to chew on doesn't mean that you should,

Well, the weather is warm and the snow is melting. Stinks too. It was fun playing in the snow and then putting my freezing cold wet nose on the humans in our house. Oh well, what are ya gonna do?
I've been being rather rough with my human mom lately. She was annoying me so I pinched her arm a couple of times with my overbite. She's got some pretty colors on her arm now. Everyone asks her what happened, and of course, my name comes up.
Hollie's mom brought over a can of food for us to try. It was DEEEEELISHIS! It was sweet potato and duck. Though, it might have been more fun to actually catch the duck myself. I have to get my human to buy me some of this stuff.
Ok, I've gotta go for now, but I will be back sooner than later.
Hugs and Drool

I had to go to the doggie dr last Friday. My tummy started hurting and I was vomiting all over the carpet. My mom was really worried about me.
We went to see Dr Osterholm. She checked me out (took my blood and put something in my behind) and then she told mom that my back teary uh was growing too much. She gave me a shot so I wouldn't vomit anymore and an anti bio tick. She also gave me two pre scripshuns. I'm feeling so much better!
I have already begun to get back to my old ways. I've taken a shoe outside. I've gotten the cabinets open. I've bit mom playfully, and I've tried to eat dad's chips.
I hope to be writing more often, so check back. Also, did you notice anyone white and fluffy as a new HULA member? IT'S ME!!!!! WOOOooooo HOooooooooooo!
Bark at ya later,
Saturday, January 13, 2007
Where's it at? I'm ready for it. I've been such patient pup and all I want is some snow to play in. I haven't chewed on anything for quite some time (ok, a week or so) and I've only gotten into the trash once and I want some snow!
If you know where my snow is, could you please let me know?

Mom's hard red thing comes off her foot tomorrow. The van is getting fixed this week. My other mommy Janice (Holly's mommy) came to visit this past week (maybe it was two weeks, who can keep track of these things). My goodness it's been busy around here.
Well, here's the news from Omaha. There is no news. Our life is boring. Our humans are boring. Such is life I guess. Busy busy busy.
However, I did read that it is Abbey's birthday (Holly's house has the info and pics) and that is a wonderful thing! Abbey was so nice to me when I lived there. She's one heck of a gal. Happy Birthday Abbey!
I'm still laughing about Samuel and his "thingie" getting his shirt wet. He and I weren't the best of friends when I lived there, so I'm getting quite the kick out of this torment he's dealing with. Keep the funny pics a comin Holly! They're wonderful!
I hope everydog (and FuFu) are doing well and that your tummies are full and scratched often. I'll post more soon!
Hugs and Drool,
