    I realised today that Kira has been with us for a whole year!! How time flies!!

    I remember the day we 1st picked her up, I'd written down loads of questions to ask about worming and flea treatment, shots, papers etc, and told Rick that I would defianately remember to ask them (he was working) but I got there and I asked a couple of them, forgot the rest, and didnt care about the answers! lol :lol:

    She was terrified of us, couldnt walk on a lead, and we believe she had been physically punished for toileting indoors :( whenever she had an accident she'd run away with her tail between her legs and shake :frown:

    She was a terror, escaping the garden all the time, no matter how much we added to the fences, pulling like a train on the lead, and she would run in from the garden and grab your feet as she ran past!! :scared: :lol:

    1 year on she's a completely different dog, confident, loves everyone (except drunks), walks well on the lead, plays brilliantly with other dogs and is generally a fantastic dog :thumbup:

    Im so proud of my lil baby girl

    She'll be running on her own half of the season, but as part of a 4 dog team for the rest, we're not sure what position, probably joint lead, but we're gunna try lots of different arrangements to see where all the dogs work best :)

    She is such a striking looking dog, the most gorgeous eyes I have ever seen in a pooch. Didn't realise she was mistreated at the start of her life. You have done wonders with her. She looks full of health.

    She's never left in the garden alone :lol:

    Only way we can stop it atm till we rent our own place, if the garden has 6ft wooden fences all the way round she's fine, but its when she can see through (like chain link) that she tries to get out

    i dont know really it was just a thought but im guessing the husky rescue probs already do stuff like a sponsored race..... but wouldn't ot be cool if a load of people got a load of sponsors to go to sweden to do a set distance and all the charity sponsors you get can go to the rescue or to some sort of charity..... just an idea that popped in my head lol
