Wonderful News!

Ke-ola before his morning walk.
We received official word that Ke-ola is on his way to recovery. His white blood cell count is almost normal which means his infection is almost gone. His hemoglobin is almost normal too which means his anemia is almost resolved as well. We could not be happier for Ke-ola. His vet would like us to wait two to three weeks before we schedule the neuter. We want to make sure he is strong enough for the surgery.

I didn't get many pictures today as I am learning how to balance seeing clients and writing the blog. I was fortunate enough to have the support of my family to give Ke-ola my undivided attention until he was healthy. It was a sacrifice for everyone in my household. I am very grateful to each one of my family/pack for giving me this opportunity. Now that he is better it's time for life to normalize. It has been an interesting adjustment so far.

It's a stick mom!
We haven't had any company since fostering Ke-ola as caring for him has been a full-time endeavor. This means he hasn't been exposed to many new people. Yesterday I introduced him to one of my clients for the first time. He was fine with her at first and a few minutes later he started to bark. I corrected him and put him in his crate and he settled down right away.

He has become very attached to our family and he wants to do his job and protect us. He only knows the rules of the streets. That's how he survived through so many hardships on his own. Now that he feels that he has a pack he doesn't want anything or anyone to hurt us. It will take some time and lots of training and corrections to help Ke-ola learn the rules of living in a "safe environment". One can not blame him for his apprehension, its only natural. Humans showed him to be scared and now it's up to humans to show him to trust.

Ke-ola is always happy to play with Kadante.

Wishing you and your pack peace today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.

  1. Great News about Ke-ola! It is amazing how, when these "street dogs" are shown a little love how fast they become part of the pack and will lay down their life to defend their pack. Issabell is already protective of her pack as well, an issue we will work on to make sure she understands when to be protective and when not to. Keep making us proud Ke-ola by fighting the good fight.

    1. Awww Isabelle is a beautiful girl. Yes it's amazing how these street pups know that they love their pack and will do anything to protect it. We our work cut out for us too but it's a beautiful things to teach a pup to trust. Keeping our paws crossed for Ke-ola and Isabelle.
