Hi all! I've haven't posted here in ages, but I still lurk around a bit :) You may remember our little Helix- an Alaskan Klee Kai pup. We are pleased to announce that we just adopted a little sister for him from a shelter in Northern Saskatchewan! Her name is Kira and she's a Norwegian Elkhound/ Labrador cross (that's our best guess anyway...). She's the sweetest thing- she loves everyone, is very affectionate and plays very well with Helix. She's only 8 months old and weighs about 35 lbs and is 18" at the shoulders (by contrast, Helix is 14 lbs and 15" at the shoulders!). We're so happy to have rescued her! Here are a few pictures :)

Thanks everyone! Helix and Kira are doing fantastic together. They play really well and you can definitely see the friendship developing. We fell so lucky to have found her, she's so amazing and the perfect fit for us.
