Woo, everypup! It's me, Dave! Back in January of 2002, someone posted to the Siberian Husky list Mom and a lot of the other bipeds who are owned by Sibes are on about a Sibe right here in our town; he needed bailed out of the slammer and transported to a rescue group's foster home in Oklahoma. Mom heard the call. Here's part of the post she sent to the group:
"Can anyone help us with 'Yodel' ...? He's a cuddler --who out there wanted a cuddler??? He gives soft, low, gentle "woos", loves to be hugged, loves being scratched, especially in that special spot right at the base of the tail......... "wooooo", was his comment on that. Loves to give you a full-body lean. BUT prior to me getting there, he was acting like a caged animal (go figure) and is driving the animal techs nuts. They didn't realize what a sweetie he was until they saw how he was with me. He's lonely. Takes food gently... will sit for food... I'd peg him at 3-4 years but in need of a teeth cleaning. BEAUTIFUL boy. Already neutered. Black and white, blue eyes. Wound on muzzle from another dog healing cleanly. Energetic, bright-eyed, in need of companionship and exercise! Amenable to me inspecting teeth and the muzzle wound, not shy with people, no problem looping a slip-lead over his head..... basically showed no fear of anything. Friendly. Did I mention he likes to snuggle? :) Played with a toy with me, but was more interested in getting OUT of there. Anybody? Please?"
Do you know who that Yodel really was? ME! Dave! Woooooo! And that email was sent 6 years ago today ... the day Mom and Dad brought me home! Woo, it's my Adopt-a-Dave Day! (Mom sure had me pegged in that first email about me, didn't she?) You can read more details about my adoption at this link and see a couple more early pictures here. What a great day! And rather coincidental, given who's coming to visit tomorrow ... and why!
Did you see the comment the D'Azul Siberians left on yesterday's post? They guessed right - and some other Sibes dropped some mighty big hints! Yep - I get to meet the mom of my bee-woo-tiful friend Hollybollyboo and the mom of my Malpal Summit! Woo, I am so excited! They're on a rescue and transport mission this weekend - much like what was scheduled for me all those years ago! Isn't that cool?!? They are taking a gorgeous Siberboy named Thunder from Iowa all the way to Colorado! We wish them safe travels and wish Thunder TONS of happiness in his furever home! I hope things work out as well for you as they have for me! Woo!
The Mala-moms are coming!
I better catch up on my beauty sleep!
I sure hope Summi's and Holly's moms like me! What a great Dave-aversary gift! Woo!
Happy, Happy Adopt A Dave Day!ReplyDelete

What's wrong with "Yodel"?
The Human Assistant thinks one of your humans used to watch too much Cheech and Chong.
The other human changed your name to stop all the shouting of, "Dave's not here!"
That's what he said he thinks, anyway!
Hope you had a good SaturDave!
Happy adopt-a-Dave day! Lucky you, getting to meet Summi's and Holly's mamas! Maybe they'll come this way one day!ReplyDelete
Happy Adopt-a-Dave day!!! We never would've guessed that you hadn't been with your bipeds since you were a pup - sounds like you are just perfect for each other!ReplyDelete
And don't worry about the mums not liking you - I think it's impossible not to like you Dave!
We're so pleased your mum and dad found you in time, and it is impossible thinking that no one could not love you.
I needed a good home too, just like Beau, and we came to our mum. As you know, being a purebred doesn't mean that you get a better chance in life.
Love from Hammer
Have a great day Dave. I'm four years and a day behind you. I rescued master and mistress four years ago tomorrow.. (I have just made her look it up).ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy the meet-up.
