It's a BOY!!!!!
I grew up with Siberian Huskies. I know and love the breed well - and I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss having a furry companion. Now that I live in Colorado it always seemed appropriate to get one. But.... but.... with my life in such chaos I never felt it was a good time to get one. If I traveled too much or whatever to take care of a dog properly then I simply wouldn't get one.
That has been my position on the matter for years.
Well............. wouldn't you know it. I was riding my mountain bike to
Flatirons Gym and passed the huge Safeway parking lot en route. The Humane Society
had set up shop there for the day to try to get dogs adopted. Out of
the corner of my eye it JUMPED out at me. I slammed on my brakes and made a quick right angle turn into the lot with all the dogs.
There he was - in all his cuteness - staring at me.
This poor dog
had been badly abused and neglected (he was found just roaming close to
the highway in Centennial) -- but you would NEVER know it with his SWEET
disposition. I went over to pet him and we both were in love. He put
his head on my lap as I pet him and I noticed the scar on his left cornea. That beauty is left thanks to a belt beating he received, and the belt apparently hit his eye. Ugg. (Don't let me EVER meet these people!!!) He really is the most gentle thing. Given all he has been through, I can't imagine a spirit so loving not to be jaded by such abuse. He was not the slightest bit jittery or afraid. He just wanted love. (Don't we all?) My heart just melted --- this
poor pup has had such a rough time, he really deserves a loving home.
So.....meet Juneau, the sweetest dog ever! I love adopting a rescue animal,
especially one who has been so mistreated. I will love him to
