  1. We are all fine here in Haida Gwaii. I was with Ursula and a friend and his 'rez dog'. We evacuated for the night to higher ground due to the tsunami warning. I was also on call to the hospital. There were no injuries to people or animals, and the tsunami was only a two foot wave so all is well. We lost our hot springs though, a sacred site and the most beautiful hot springs I've ever seen; earthquake knocked the island off the source it seems. In all a pretty incredible outcome given a 7.7 earthquake just about 40 miles from home. Such that the photo below has been going around faceboo
  2. I was listening to this program on the radio this afternoon, "Legends of the Cayuga". The story "The Hunting of the Ugly Bear", it explains the changing of the seasons in terms of a a story that involves astronomic constellations, one of which is a little bear dog named Four Eyes. So according to the Cayuga, there is an indian dog constellation. http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/episodes/legends/2012/02/29/legends-of-the-cayuga/ Listen: http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/episodes/legends/2012/02/29/legends-of-the-cayuga/editor-content.html?cs=utf-8# The whole program is great, but if you have limi
  3. I still wish I had kept one! Maybe my humans will allow me to get a grandpuppy.
  4. Happy birthday to Sitka and Ursula's pups - Taku, Tux, Ya'ahl, Duff, Butter, Little Bear, and #7 (I called her Taanaay, I don't know what her new family calls her, apparently she lives in Oregon with a person who does forest fire watches and spends lots of time in the woods). I see Tux and Ya'ahl pretty regularly and they have grown into beautiful, smart, mischievous teenagers. Kim says he will be breeding Little Bear this year so Ursula will be a grandmother. The whole puppy experience was so precious and fun. I still miss the pups often, and have so many nice memories of the short fifty
  5. I played a youtube video of some husky pups howling and yipping and Ursula has found her voice again.
  6. Too funny! Any toys that Clara (kid) or Oliver (dog) find interesting get hidden in our house too. I have caught Ursula hiding her toys under sofa cushions, in the back of closets, in the woods and under our garden shed. Her two favourites have disappeared for months at a time, only to reappear covered in dirt. When Ursula wants to play with them and doesn't want to hide them away or doesn't have an acceptable hiding place for them, she sleeps with them. I won't tell her about the hide them in the boots trick.
  7. I asked Kim a question and as usual got an interesting answer, which he suggested could be shared here. -----Original Message----- From: Andrea Wilhelm [mailto:andrea@haidagwaii.net] Sent: Thursday, February 02, 2012 7:44 AM To: kim laflamme Subject: Xoloitzcuintle Do you consider Xoloitzcuintles to be Indian Dogs, and if so, have you bred any into your family?

  8. Holiday wishes For every dog searching trash cans for breakfast, a full bowl with his name printed in bright letters. For every dog who slept fitfully last night, chained in a frozen yard, a soft, warm bed with a person snoring gently nearby. For every shelter dog, spending Christmas morning in a soiled run, a forever home, filled with sounds and smells of family. For every “Christmas” puppy given today, a tolerant, caring owner who won’t abandon you as you grow into a real dog. For every ailing pet, enough money for your owner to pay the bills to make you well. Fo
  9. And if I could train Ursula to do this, christmas would be way more fun! http://wimp.com/christmastree/
  10. Newkim is Ursula's uncle. Wow, I think I'd like to have a couple new dogs. Too bad it would mean divorce.
  11. It is an interesting thing. I have heard in Churchill, Manitoba (where there are lots of advertised "Polar Bear Safaris"), it has become relatively common for bears and dogs to play together. Part of the reason is because with global warming and the tourism trade, the bears have become much more tame, and rely on the town dump for some of their food. The people there don't discourage it because they get lots of tourism business from having the bears around. At the same time, they have a number of sled dogs (because tourists like them), who are kept outside. Put two and two together, two s
