One Year with the Kapp Pack

Today is a very special day for me, Sunshine Meadow. Today is the anniversary of my Gotcha Day. The day that Kelsey Ann went to the bridge, I was brought in as a stray at the Humane Society of Lebanon County. That was a Wednesday. On Saturday, I met the bipeds who would be my new family when they brought a food donation. I wasn't allowed to go with them that day since I had only been in the kennels for two days, but on Sunday I was eligible for adoption. They were there waiting for me when the place opened and I went to my fur-ever home.

I met Canyon (Sky too, but couldn't find a picture from my first day)

Biloxi was staying with them at the time in foster care. He didn't want to share "his" toys.

I found my favorite perch. Because I had a habit of sitting on furniture with muddy paws, no doggies are allowed on furniture anymore. Mom and Dad recently spent lots of money to have the muddy pawprints cleaned and I had to learn to stay off furniture. Good thing I'm a fast learner.

Here I am learning to drive. The little biped is trying to explain the intricacies of stick shift to me. Now, I'm quick at learning, but how am I supposed to reach the pedals and see out the window. I also can't figure out how to grab the gear shift with no thumbs.

Here I am finding dirty dishes.

I've done a whole bunch of fun things over the last year. Mom and Dad are really good at spoiling my fun though. There is a fridge lock; food is now stored in the garage; no dogs on furniture anymore; special Meadow proof fence in addition to the 6 foot chainlink. But, I've thoroughly trained them new tricks... Everydog gets an ice cube whenever the freezer is opened; food dishes can be used as frisbees; the little biped likes kisses to wake her up; no water in my dish - that's OK we'll drink from the toilet; a girl needs a BFF, better adopt a puppy for me.

Well, 1 year down. Many more to go. Lots of stupid human tricks for me to teach.

New Smells!

Well, what happened yesterday wasn't what we had expected. Mom came home and let us all out and then Meadow and I had to go back into our crates (at least Mom let us room together for the evening). Out the door she went. What???? Where's the little biped??? Why are you leaving us again????

When it was almost dark Mom and the little biped came home and they both smelled really strange....I couldn't figure out what they smelled like.....was it animal, vegetable or mineral??? I decided I better look at the camera to see what the strange smells were and this is what I found...

Now this was the coolest bipeds saw these awesome canine athletes. Mom told me all of them are rescued dogs just like us. They even got to meet some of the canine stars after the show and mom personally thanked the human in charge for having rescued dogs. He said he wouldn't have it any other way. I was so happy to hear that! If you look closely at the pictures you can see all kinds of awesome canine manuevers!

One happy world champion rescue dog!

They even saw the canine version of the Michael Jackson moonwalk!!!

I wish I would have been allowed to go to the fair with them. It looks like I would have had a pawsome time and maybe learned a few new tricks!

Note from Mom: Yesterday marked the 1 year anniversary of our dear, sweet, pretty girl Kelsey Ann. I'd like to share the memorial video again. Kelsey Ann's paws will furever be on our hearts.

A Field Trip

After lunch yesterday, the bipeds began getting ready to go out. I figured I would be heading to my crate in the garage right next to Brook's. Instead, I got hooked up to my leash and taken to the car. Where are we going I wondered.

The Little Biped was happy to go wherever it was we were going

Once we got out of the car, I led the way with my nose to the ground to sniff everything in our path

What's this? A brook - thought we left her at home... LOL.

Smells like fish!

Look at the pretty view. Not far from where we sat, the stream runs into a big lake.

There's the fish. See 'em, Dad. Catch some for me!

Is that the best you can do? Last week you brought home a bunch of these. Just one lousy 4 inch blue gill today. No wonder the Little Biped got bored so quickly this week and the fishing trip lasted less than 30 minutes.

Maybe next time will go better.

Fun in the Sun

Hey Pups,
Thought I'd tell you about our July 4th weekend. Dad took the Little Biped fishing. They caught a bunch of fish. Crappies, sunnies, rock fish, blue gills and even one smallmouth bass. The bass was too small to keep. The largest fish caught, a sunny, was about 7 inches and the Little Biped set the hook and landed it by herself. I'm not sharing pictures of that because I didn't get to eat any, so you don't get to see the photos. They went to a couple of picnics without us - so again no pictures because we weren't invited. Yesterday, all of us got baths in the front yard after Dad washed the cars. Here we are in the yard doing our best to get dirty again.

Dad really needs to do something about the grass and weeds that have found their way up through the mulch.

Kisses, Skyboy

Somepuppy's Anniversary

Hi Pups!

This weekend marks a very special anniversary for somepuppy. Do woo remember this puppy?
That's Biloxi, our foster pup we helped save. He came to us from Mississippi. Dad drove him the whole way home from MS the last week of June last year. This pic is from Biloxi helping us with the Blogathon.
Biloxi spent his first weekend with us at the beach in Delaware. He seemed to love soaking up the rays!

Happy first Pennsylvania anniversary little buddy! You can visit Biloxi here

Mud Puppy

As is the case every morning, Canyon, Sky and I awoke as the first dawn's light began to come through the window. Dad and Mom aren't too happy with us most mornings because we are rising before 6am. This morning, the dawn came a little later than usual because the sky was black with thunder clouds. Every few seconds a big flash of light and a terrible noise occurred. Mom woke up and wondered aloud what time it might be. She put on her glasses and looked at the clock - OH NO! THE POWER WAS OUT SHE SAID. Quickly she ran to the dining room to look at the battery powered clock. She came back and told Dad it was 6:05am. They got up and Dad took us to the garage to wake Brook and head outside for our morning trip to the dog yard. While we were out, we got soaked (Dad said later the rain gauge had over an inch of rain from the 1 hour deluge this morning). I was thirsty, so I decided to dig a hole that could fill up with water for a drink. Dad came back from his trip to the big white porcelain water bowl in the basement to let us in and found me with my paws covered in mud. All of us got our feet wiped when we came in and I got put right in my crate. I sat and cried because Brook wasn't with me and Brook sat and cried in the dining room right by the door to the garage and cried. Finally, Mom was headed to the basement to get clothing from the laundry baskets in the laundry room and let Brook into her crate next to mine. Dad took some pictures of me and my muddy paws to share with you.

Another Red Head Needs Help...

We just thought we had to share with you the story of a little red and white husky puppy we heard about today. 

 Sinatra is a 3-4 month old Siberian Husky that was hit by a car on the 23rd May and taken to the Emergency Vet Clinic by a Good Samaritan, as she was a stray they wouldn't treat her but they gave her pain meds and sent her over to animal control where she sat in a cage in sick and injured for 4 days

As you can see from her X Rays she has a fractured Pelvis, fractured Femoral Head, Fractured Left Tibia and Fibula. Due to the extent of her injuries it is the vets opinion she has to have surgery to repair all her injuries at the same time or be humanely euthanized and that is the last thing we want when with surgery she is expected to make a FULL recovery and lead a long happy 4 legged life !! She is going to go to Kansas State for the treatment. It is expected to cost at least $1500 and probably a lot more, but we wont know exactly how much until her our vet can call them tomorrow her X rays and pain meds today were $100. (Update 5/28 costs are expected to reach $2500 for her treatment)

If you can help by donating even $10 it would be greatly appreciated, as the rescue just don't have the funds to be able to pay for all her treatment. 

Sinatra's condition can be verified by Dr Brooks at Meadowbrook Veterinarian Hospital (316) 733-6866

We feel we have a certain kinship with this little pup. It was almost a year ago we took Biloxi in as a foster with a very similar injury. He unfortunately was not able to get the immediate care these donations will allow Sinatra to have. His leg healed incorrectly and just about 1 month ago he had to have surgery to remove the femoral head from one of his femurs. We really think had he been as lucky as Sinatra to get quick treatment he wouldn't have had to go through the pain of the surgery almost a year later.

Every little bit can donate by going to the fundraising page by clicking here

Please help this little one get a new lease on life! Paw  it furward!
