HOW I GOT THE NAME "KAINAH"
It all started with Hurricane Harvey. All I remember from the end of August was being brought to the Houston Humane Society because my human pack family could not take care of me anymore. Being a 10 month old husky/shepherd mix, it was a confusing time for me meeting so many people. But the best part is that I had a fun roommate to play with. One day, a human female came to my doorway and kept looking at me. She knelt down and tapped on the glass making sounds I couldn't understand. My roommate barked and barked trying to get her attention but she just kept staring at me. For the following week, she continued to visit me and I would push my friend out of the way so I could lay my head against the glass where her hand rested.
Little did I know that I would be starting a whole new adventure with her. When this human heard how much heartache Hurricane Harvey had caused everyone here she drove down with a car full of food and supplies and stayed for a month to help however she could at my shelter. It was the second week in Sept. when a group of us were loaded in crates ready to be transported to another destination for adoption. For some reason I was taken off that transport and returned to my room with my previous playmate. Turns out, I was going to be adopted by that human who kept visiting me. What a surprise! After 2 more weeks in Houston, my new mom drove back with me to Mich. When she opened the car door after 4 days of traveling, I was in doggie heaven. It felt so good to just run and run. I was so happy to be flying like the wind. Mom was really worried that I wouldn't come back 'cuz I ran so far. Of course, I came back to her. It's just in my husky blood to run free for a while.
It's been quite a learning experience for both of us these past 2 months; But, I think I'm getting her pretty well "trained" to understand me! She takes me everywhere with her and I have soooo many friends to play with. She told everyone at Thanksgiving that I was a blessing given to her for helping out in Texas, but I just say "I won the doggie mega-jackpot"! THis is my story and how I came to be named Kainah with an H at the end.
P. S. It was a dog-wagging day when I said goodbye to everyone at the Houston Humane Society but I truly loved everyone there and I hope my mom will bring me back so I can lick their faces and bark hello.
