Many people bring up all the old stories of not enough, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of living and growing.
I rescued a husky 'Meeki' 2 years ago. I thought I was not enough, I was going to fail, I was going to let her down. What a furthy story that was. She has grown into a lovely, sassy husky that she was meant to be. How exciting to be on the adventure that I am on with my fur babies.

A story about the lessons learnt from Meeki, a rescue husky
When you enter the world of rescues, you definitely don't know where it will take you. This beautiful little girl has come a long way in 2 years.
Our 1st meeting was unique ... It took 45 minutes to get her into the car, she was frozen with fear, we eventually had to help her into the car. Meeki was definitely fearful of men but there was a little light that she showed when she took a very small treat from a friend Sam from Canberra. A little spark, little did I know that it was going to be months before she would accept another treat.
When Meeki arrived she was scared of everything, her dinner bowl, dog bones, cuddles, pats, movement, feet, the back door, the front door, the garage door, the car, black 4x4 in the street, people in hats, people without hats, people with beards, people that moved too quickly and many, many more phobias. She didn't sleep, she didn't eat for nearly 2 1/2 weeks. I nearly gave her back because I thought I couldn't help her, I thought I was not the right person for MEEKI, I thought I was letting her down. How wrong was I.
2 years pass and totally to my amazement, I now own a pocket rocket, a sassy husky that is still learning everyday and a fur mum that is learning how rescues repair you as much as you help them start to accept the big scary world is really exciting.
Thank you Meeki for coming to my home and help me laugh & smile everyday. Even though this is not the best photo, it is one of the very few I could get all those years ago.
