Thanks Renee. I kinda think Ami did more for me than we did for him. But, Wayne has been saying he looks like he has filled out. I just can't believe how much. Or how emaciated he was.

Liz, the shelter director said his coat was gone due to malnutrition and exposure, not shaved. I wonder if that is why Ami seems so grateful all the time. Hard to explain, but he really does, just melts my heart when he looks up with that grateful look on his eyes.

I agree, it looks like previous owners possibly shaved him Sad

He is such a handsome boy, I always enjoy seeing his fluffy face Smile

Now that I have seen him in more pictures, a long while back you said he and Okami make a lot of the same facial expressions... I totally see it now. They have a lot of the same features.

Edit: of course after I post I see your comment of malnutrition being the reason for his coat being so short. That is so sad :'( I am so happy Ami is loved now.

I never saw those videos Amy...your house/yard is awesome!!! Now I have a better picture in my head for when you tell your stories of Ami Smile and wow, Ami...I just love him. He is a beautiful husky for sure. When you say he is taller than standard, I personally don't see it, but I realize they are pics and things like that can be deceiving. He is a stunning dog, he has some of the prettiest blue eyes I've ever seen. I enjoyed his "baby pics" Wink at first glance I thought wow, Kohdi is fluffier than a wooly, lol.

Thanks, Lucy. I'm a little frustrated with it - it's supposed to have a transparent pale green background but it's not showing up no matter what I do with it Mad

Jimmy - thank you, we love it here. Most of the time. Winter was a little rough this year with an all time record low average high for Feb - I think it was 9 or something like that. I'm not sure my pool survived - it looks like the liner is floating underneath the cover. And, since it was only used, I think twice last year, once by Josh's son and once at the wedding by all the kids, husband is saying he's not willing to put another liner in Sad Problem is, our season is so damn short - I used to use a solar cover but found it really complicated algae control. Without adding heat, the pool only begins to approach a comfortable 80 by the last week in June and it abruptly cools off after the first week in August. Last year, I think we reached 80-82 maybe for a week - most of the summer was 74-ish. Too cold for me!

Ami is only 1-1.5" over standard (if I'm measuring him right - he's kind of squirrely when the tape or the rule comes out.

When I told the vet about his skin/coat condition when he was "surrendered" (the shelter director gave and ultimatum - surrender or be seized. He was pissed.), the vet thought maybe he had flea dermatitis but I had specifically asked about fleas when we got him and they said no - he had no evidence and his paperwork showed no flea treatment. His neuter was done at Cornell Vet school and there was no mention of skin stuff in his exam paperwork. The shelter did tell us they had to wait a month to get him in adoptable condition.

Fortunately, we were at a gas station 10 minutes away, early in the morning and I was reading the paper while Wayne filled the tank. So we got to the shelter before they opened and were the first to ask about Ami - they had 3-4 calls about him while we waited. I have to believe there was an unseen hand guiding us - we never get up that early and this shelter is about 20 miles from our house. And I think we give Ami as good a life as he gives us, at least I hope so.

I believe in that "unseen hand guiding us" Amy, I've experienced too much of it to ever be doubtful...even in the case of Kohdi, I had a deposit down on another puppy and it "fell through" it was going to be my birthday the next day and it would have been my very first in my entire life there wasn't a husky with me...next day on my birthday I'm driving nine hours to pick up Kohdi Smile even weirder is I put down a deposit on Mishka unknowingly on the one year anniversary of Anuschka passing away...and when did I go pick her up from the breeder? On my birthday, haha. And in all honesty, I don't believe Ami could have gotten any better a home than yours. I've read so many of your posts that I can actually "see" the love you have for him and him for you.  You and I are a lot alike in that we want our dogs to be trained and have boundaries, etc. but we also want them to be able to enjoy just being a dog, and we get our own enjoyment in watching that Smile
