Spaying Day....

I'm going to have a whole off day without my Sweet Girl Mya.  Today is the day that she goes to the vet to get spayed.  No womanhood for her!!  As much as I would love to breed her and make beautiful baby huskies...  I just don't have the knowledge nor the time to take on something with that magnitude.  I would rather give quality time to her and Mac when I'm off.

So wish her luck and a peaceful recovery!!!


For more information on the benefits of spaying and neutering your pet...  Check out the following article from the American Humane Association....

Hand Signals For Your Pet....

Still looking at the vast array of pet knowledge there is out there on the world wide web---and I came across this.  Teaching you furbaby hand signals to go along with your verbal commands.  Now Mya already understands a few, but I haven't tried to teach her the other ones because I don't want to do anything that will confuse her with her trainer.  Our biggest challenge is when we are playing fetch or when she has an item in her mouth--trying to get her to "release" the item is a very big ordeal!!  It is top on my list of questions for our next training session!!  Just getting this accomplished will make play time alot better!!!

There are several sites, both listed under "blogs I follow" that can show you the hand signals most commonly used.  The first is by Dog Training Excellence under Hand Signals..  The other one is on a Border Collie Rescue site under Universal Commands.  Both have great illustrations that show you exactly what to do...
I'm going to work with Mya on some of the basic ones and then see what else her trainer wants her to use...

Let me know if you use hand signals with your furbaby.....

Now If You Are Looking to Adopt....

Yesterday I told you about my choice and how I got Mya.  But I have since learned of so many other ways. One is through adoption.  There are so many pets that for one reason or another are homeless and need a good home.  I've come to find out that there is an Alabama Siberian Husky Rescue group that helps place these beautiful babies.

Here is a beauty named Kashmir.  He is 2 years and 8 months old...  Please check out his site and see if you can give him a forever home!!!



These beautiful babies need homes..  Please visit the Alabama Siberian Husky Rescue page for a complete listing of all there Huskies!!!!  I have added a link to visit their site under "blogs I follow" so please check them out!!

Meeting Mya....

     Several friends have asked my where I got Mya and if I went through a breeder or adoption.  Mac has always wanted a Siberian Husky with blue eyes for as long as I can remember.  So when I decided to find Ozzy, my Pekingese, a new home---I gave in and started searching for Mac his husky.   I knew I didn't want to rush into it, plus I wanted to read as much as I could about what I was heading into.
      I decided to go with Christopher's Husky Ranch in Wedowee Alabama and I'm so glad I did.  When we got there to pick her up, I knew she had been very well taken care of.  It was literally a Husky ranch--on the lake.  So clean and organized!!  I have always had full blooded dogs and have always gotten them from breeders and this was by far the best I had ever been too.  Mac was beside him self he was so happy to get her.  As was I..  And so began our journey.  She is now six months old and in training to hopefully become a therapy dog.  And just a good, lovable dog everyone can enjoy.

Here are some pictures from the day we got her....

                                                      This is Mya giving her mom a good by kiss...

                                                      Mya could only wave to her dad...

My Reading Homework....

I've gone from reading things like Fifty Shades of Gray to Calming Signals:  What Your Dog Tells You!!!  No romance for a while!!  It's all about Mya and getting her to where she needs to be.  With me working as much as I am, I need all the help I can get and our trainer recommended this book along with the video.

New Blog----WELCOME!!!

I will have to admit, it's my fault The New Crafty Me went away.  The domain was registered with Go Daddy and I must of let it expire.  So, we begin again...  Since I'm not really crafting that much, I just decided to go ahead and change it up.  With the new "divorce budget" crafting had to take a back seat to Mac and Mya.  Mac being the sixteen year old going on twenty and Mya the "puppy in training"...
Anyways, hope you come along for the journey.  Both are always interesting!!!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
