Blogging Buddies: Punk, Asa, Kai and Danielle

 meet punk. [yes punk is her name] she is a lab/sheltie mix and came into our lives about 8 years ago.

this is her 8 years ago! :] isn't she cute?

she was adopted by my husband and she is primarily HIS dog.

they are BEST buds! and she usually ONLY listens to him! :] which is fine with me!

I remember when I first moved back to Missouri how she was very leery of me and even bit my face once. 
Those days are long gone, and she is my baby now too... but she is definitely a territorial dog with an attitude!

She is the most regal and beautiful dog I've ever loved.

Two years later we adopted ASA!!! she is MY baby!

she is wild and crazy. her tail never wags in the same direction and if you tell her to speak she will grunt repeatedly because she's nuts!

here she is as a puppy:
 i found her at the humane society covered in poop with a masking tape collar around her neck. she was shivering in a corner and i saw her. i pulled her out of the cage, scooped her into my arms and never looked back. i wanted to name her "pooper" but brett did not agree. haha! needless to say we chose a great name for my baby!

punk INSTANTLY fell in love with Asa!
They have been best friends ever since!!!

Last but not least, pup #3.

Meet Kai!

About a year and a half ago I was in the front yard very early in the morning. (right before i gave up smoking) and this random dog was walking around.
she was starved half to death, she couldn't even sit down right because she was so malnourished. she was scared, abused and starving.

she followed me to the backyard and i gave her food, and then later gave her a bath and a warm crate. a year and a half later she is a wonderful part of our family and we love her so much.
since we've had her she is no longer scared of tile flooring, she LOVES to howl... you wouldn't even believe it. this dog howls more than some people talk.

she gained about 20 lbs and prances around in the snow. it's amazing what a little love can do for a dog.

Thank you, Danielle for telling us all about Punk, Asa, and Kai!
