1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

PostSubject: Koda - Updated 12/18/09   Wed May 20, 2009 4:56 pm

Hello everyone! My name is Tori and this is my husky, Koda. My boyfriend and I adopted him through a rescue referral when he was 7 months old from a family that saved him from a shelter, but were unable to keep him. Ever since he came into our lives, nothing has been the same! He was very mellow when we first got him, perhaps the most mellow husky I had ever seen, but once he got comfortable around us, BOY did he come out of his shell! I work from home a lot and he "yells" at me constantly to play (he loves to talk)! We love taking him hiking, camping, running around in local parks....anywhere and everywhere! He's the most playful and fun dog I've ever had and I'm so excited to have him as a life-long companion. Hope you enjoy his pictures- I know there are a lot Smile

7 months old before we got him (our first pictures of him)




His first days



Playing around in true Koda form









And sleeping

Any dog that plays hockey is a good dog in my book!

Here are some pictures from 6/7/2009- our play date with Napoleon (the Berner) and Leia (the Dane):








The pictures aren't the best, as I took them with my cell phone, but we had a blast! It was one of the first real socializations that we've had with Koda (same for Leia- she's only just 2 years and Dane's are fragile before that) and it went WAY better than we all expected! We'll definitely be doing that more often. Matt and Sandy are two of our best friends up here and it was great for them all to get along so well Smile

Koda looks like he had an awesome time - I know I am biased and your friends dogs are lovely but Koda is the best looking dog in that pack Wink

Your friend needs to be nominated for the TV show What Not To Wear. Dress, running shoes and a thermal jacket?! Suspect

Glad your little social event went well though!

Look at that tongue hanging out in the second to last pic. It looks like he had a lot of fun.

She was on her way out to buy new clothes actually... she just finished chemo and because the cancer is gone she gained a ton of weight and didn't have any clothes that fit her comfortably anymore.

LOL. Sandy actually dresses very well... when she has options. She plans on losing the weight now that she's done with her chemo and getting her life back to normal. She was just buying clothes in the interim. Man... I hope she never sees this-- she would die. I guess I shouldn't have posted such a horrible picture of her!!

No offense, but chemo can cause you to gain weight? I thought it was the other way around?

Chemo will kill your healthy appetite. What happened in her case is that the chemo gave her a "hangover" like feeling. Thus, she ate junk food throughout the entire procedure. However, the chemo, combined with the cancer eating at everything she ingested caused her to LOSE weight. Once the chemo effectively killed the cancer, everything she ingested became just that- ingested food that packs on pounds. Her pattern of behavior remained the same until the chemo ended (and her "hangover" appetite for junk food ceased). Without the cancer there to eat up the pounds, she gained a lot of weight.

Now that the cancer and the chemo are gone- she is eating normally but maintaining an unhealthy weight. Thus- she bought new clothing for the interim and will begin losing weight in a healthy way. Until then... she needs to wear something and feel comfortable and look nice while doing it. Wink

Actually Tori I was so busy looking at the dogs I didn't notice your friend and her attire! I think for someone who is recovering from cancer she looks great - hope she is well on the road to recovery Very Happy

Interesting! Well, I'm glad your friend is now cancer-free! Unfortunately I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer exactly 13 years ago last Friday. She did not go through any of that. My family and I tried to get her eating her favorite food again but she was not able to hold it down and kept losing weight. But at least she is at peace now. I miss her though!

I'm sorry for your loss Danielle. I can't imagine what that must have been like Sad

Sandy was very very lucky. She was a very rare case having gone from Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma and two months into chemo it was gone completely. That's the reason her weight fluctuated as it did. It doesn't happen like that for everyone.

So I realized that I didn't put too many pictures of Koda up this summer and I have a few that I just took. I apologize for the clarity on some of them. I just got a new phone (with a nice camera in it) and I'm still figuring out how to use it properly.

After a hike up Mt Stevens at camp with Romeo, my brother and a few buddies


Playing in his kiddie pool


Playing tug-of-war with a horse leadline (see his camp staff ID on his collar? Smile )


First pic on the new phone (this is my phone's wallpaper Smile )


Being cute on the couch



On a recent hike in the Adirondacks



Koda got up two flights of stairs on the tower at the top and got scared, so we tied him and walked up to the top for pictures


But then he was too scared to go down...



Taking in the fresh air...


And lastly...pouting while daddy brushes him


Just for you Cath! Smile

Awww thanks Tori Very Happy

Koda is looking GORGEOUS!!! I love the pic of John carrying him down those stairs - I don't blame him being scared I think I would have been a bit wobbly up there too!!!! The views on your hikes were amazing.
