Well, the #1 Rule in my house must love Mally and Adak does, here is a pic of her on his new bed with him. I have more to come.

This is my best friend, he is like my little brother, one swimming accident and everything has changed. I really don't know where to begin, I have been crying and praying for 30 mins now. He dove into a pool almost 2 weeks ago, hit his head and crushed 3 vertebrea one being C5. He was taken to one hospital and transferred to CMC where the best trauma team is. He had spine surgery last Tuesday and seemed
to be recovering pretty well, a few days later they started keeping him medically sedated as he was getting very aggitated with the tubes and not being able to talk. He developed pneumonia and his lungs had fluid in them last weekend, they started him on medicine and had to revive him with an oxygen bag when they would bathe him. Yesterday,
one of Eric's lungs collapsed, they took him off the ventilator and put a trach in, everything was going well, then his lung collapsed, so the trach came out and he is on an oscalator, his isolator number was 9 and should have been 50, so more meds, they are keeping him medically sedated at this time and numbed his whole body, yes he is
still paralyzed from the shoulders down. Today his kidneys started failing so he is on dialysis. The doctors said he is a fighter and if he was not 23 he would not have made it this far. His family has been there daily for support and his grandparents are holding up very well, they are spending the nights in the waiting room that is
closest to ICU and declined the hospitality room incase they are needed. Eric is a fighter, very strong headed at first he was telling the drs and nurses that he was going to walk again, since his spinal surgery things are different. They are giving him a 25% chance of making it and as long as he is fighting they are going to keep
working on him. He is hooked up to so many machines and I remember when I saw him, I kissed him on the head and told him I loved him and everyone was thinking of him and his family, he winked at me and mouthed "I Love You Too" He also let me know he was not very happy with the tubes in his mouth and chewed on them, when I told him to stop he flared his nostrils at me and I told him to calm down and if
he was calm about things and did not chew they would be out soon, we were in hopes that the tubes would be out in 24-48 hrs at that time, one week later he is doing worse. We will be working on a charity event for him/his family as he will need inhome nursing care when he gets out of the hospital.

Alaskan Malamute Pictures / Pics of Adak

I hope you guys enjoy! They also include pics of Tonka sleeping. Modified (the pic of Tonka is the one on the hardwood, not under the chair) I did not realize how much they resemble each other when they are sleeping, Tonka is bigger for now.

Well sorry I have not been on, just got internet set up at my house. I want to say that not only did I get a new house....I have a new puppy. 13 wk old male malamute: ADAK...I love him. The girls are together at Brandon's and I get them on the weekends. Introductions went well, Nala is establishing her position on the Alpha ladder at the moment, she is getting better with little Adak. I will have pics of all 3 soon.

Helpful Groups & Dogs in Need / Malamute in need

Hi, well unfortunately there is yet another Malamute in need in the Charlotte, NC area. I have personally met this beautiful girl not once but twice and she is absolutely wonderful. I met with some represenatives from the Malamute Rescue today and they performed temperment testing and she did a wonderful job, showed absolutely no signs of aggression. She is very loving and is between 18 and 24 months old. I have thought about taking her myself, the only holding back is the fear of same sex aggression with Tonka and Nala. She will meet Nala this week to see how she does around other dogs. So far at the Animal Control, she shows no signs of dog aggression, but she is also in her own run in the medical quarantine area because she requires a special spay procedure. Please pass this to anyone who may be interested. I can help with transport and or housing. She is truely a wonderful girl and would be a great companion to anyone. She is being called "Sequoia" at this time through Alaskan Malamute Rescue of NC. She is a bit under weight at this time and could benefit by gaining ~10 lbs. I believe she is ~72 lbs at this time. She was found as a confined stray and no one has spoken up about her which is really shocking to us because of her temperment. You can truely tell she has been around people. She takes food/treats/toys very well from humans and also loves belly and back rubs. I have been rubbing her ears and at first she was a bit shy, but today when I came in she was all perky and put her head in my lap for some ear rubs.

Alaskan Malamute Pictures / Vacation pics
« on: September 12, 2006, 02:04:35 pm »
We just got back from Snowshoe, WV last night and I wanted to share some pics with you. Since my girls are very neglected and have to sit on chairs to relax, I knew you guys would not mind seeing the pics. Tonka is beginning to bike journ with Brandon and is doing well. Nala is healing, so unfortunately we don't have any hiking pics of her. She does have a brand new pack, but we can not put anything in it for now, but it does seem to calm her down and give her a sense that she is working. Also, please find a pic of the deer which were Nala's favorite thing to bark at.

Nala went in for what we thought was a knee injury and it turned out that she has low grade hip dysplasia on her left hip. I am completely beside myself.
