White Dog was kept busy all day helping Adam and then Steve create a bedroom space for my nephew, Michael. He will, it turns out be our house guest for the next couple of months. Yesterday Nancy went to the doctor with shortness of breath and was sent immediately to the ER. There, it was determined that her issues were not just getting adjusted to our altitude (Albuquerque is a mile high), but rather some serious pulmonary malfunctioning. She will be in the hospital and rehab for awhile. White Dog has already grown fond of Michael and she wanted to make certain that her new "downstairs" neighbor would be comfortable. White Dog has been very patient and gentle as she expresses her needs and as she tries to understand the special needs of being autistic and 17. It will be an adjustment for all of us!

What a wonderful example of how the love of an eskie can mean so much.

Micahel and Siku will learn about each other and test the limits, to be sure. But in the end, the love of your family will hold you in a warm embrace as you help one another thru the next several months.

Thank dog for you....

Best of luck to all of you. Just being able to help each other out is the key.

That is so great that you are able to help your nephew out and that Siku is doing her part to help too! Dogs are amazingly intuitive with people!

We hope Michael's mom is better soon and doesn't have to be in the rehab place for too long!

hey Siku Marie,

I am sad to hear of Nancy's condition. I will cross my paws that she heals quickly! You and your humans are so super to take in Micheal. I know Micheal will just love you to pieces, Siku Marie!

You all are angels. And you will all learn and grow together. We are betting that Michael's moma is getting the care she needs, just as Michael will with you, Siku, and your loving family to support Michael. Moma specialized in autism for the last 15 years of her career, and she knows that canines are one of the best sorts of therapy - and best source of understanding and love.

We love you all

Oh yes, indeed, you need to have White Dog talk to Clive. She will be so good for Michael. Prayers from here for Michael's Mom.
