Find A Cure For IMHAI was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome in 2006. It is a combination of IMHA/AIHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia/Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia) and IMT/ITP (Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia/Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura). I was hospitalized for over a week and received numerous blood transfusions and a cocktail of immunosuppressants to save my life. I was weaned off the medications due to complications such as Cushings Disease but after a few months off the drugs, I relapsed again so I am currently back on medication. I continue to fight this disease everyday. There is no cure for this disease so please help support the fight for a cure. Meisha's Hope Fund and Morris Animal Foundation has teamed up to find a cure for IMHA with Autoimmune/Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia Fund #338. Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia is a serious blood disorder and scientists estimate over 50% of dogs diagnosed with it will die from the condition. Affected dogs show signs of weakness, lethargy, exercise intolerance and anorexia. This deadly blood disorder occurs when something triggers the dog's body to attack its own red blood cells. Despite aggressive immunosuppressive therapy, this disease has a very high mortality rate. Many dogs die shortly after diagnosis, so an effective early treatment is critical. All commissions earned from this design will go to the Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation.

American Eskimo Dog RescueEveryday, people are working together to rescue Eskies and to help them find their forever homes. Show your support for these wonderful people and organizations. All commissions earned from this cartoon American Eskimo dog design will go to Eskie Rescue.

Opt To AdoptMommie adopted me in 2005 and she always says it is the best thing ever. Loving dogs are waiting in shelters around the country to be adopted. Opt to adopt and make a loving forever home for these poor dogs. All commissions earned from this design will go to local animal shelters.

Posing For Pictures

Mommie's friend came over to visit. She took a picture of me with her camera phone. She was surprised that I cooperated. I like posing for the camera. I am very curious about it so usually when I see it, I look straight at the lens. Mom has tons of pictures of me. She put some of them up on some Eskie Yahoo group photo albums to share with others. Although sometimes she has a hard time taking the picture coz I like to check out what the camera is by smelling it. I actually like to pose even if there is no camera. I will get a toy and walk across the room, put my toy on the ground and pose beside it and look at Mom to see if she is looking at me.

Doggie Play Date

I went on my first play date. Mom found a Golden Retriever puppy for me to play with. He is only 3 months old but he is already a little bit bigger than me. His backyard was really big and we were able to run around all afternoon. Whenever he got tired of me chasing him, he would hide under the barbeque grill. It was really fun. He liked to eat the plants and grass and rocks. Haha! He is still a baby and does not know any better. His Mommie kept telling him to stop eating but he still kept at it. Eventually there was a pile of stuff on the patio table because she had to keep confiscating things from him. Mommie is trying to find me another American Eskimo to play with but no luck so far. That is ok. I like to play with all kinds of doggies.

Eskie in the Summertime

Boy! It is getting really hot here in California. All this fur I have is really starting to become a bad thing but Mom read that Eskies should not get their fur shaved or cut so I am stuck with it. She got me an electric fan so that I will always have a breeze to cool me down. At first I was afraid of it coz it kept moving from left to right and making a noise. But now I am used to it and I really like the wind that comes from it. She also gives me ice cubes which are really fun to lick. She makes them in the shape of a hockey puck that I chase around the backyard. Sometimes she puts it in my water bowl and I like to fish it out with my paw.

Lunch at Tony Roma's

We went to visit one of Mommie's friends and ate lunch at Tony Roma's. The people there were very nice. They opened the outdoor eating area so that I could stay with Mommie and her friend while they ate lunch. Mom was not open to the idea of leaving me in the car while they ate. Whee! I get to go wherever she goes. I tried asking the waiter for some of the barbeque ribs he was serving but I did not get any. All I got was my usual food that Mom packed for me. Hmph! So eventually I just lied down near the gate and watched the people going by. A lot of people were passing by the restaurant and I wanted to say hello to all of them but there were so many. A small boy approached me so I was able to say hello. That was nice. I like meeting new people!

Doggie Food

Mom used to buy me canned dog food but she read that dry dog food is better. So now she buys me Nutro Dental Lamb and Rice and Purina One Lamb and Rice. I like them both but the Nutro is a bit hard to bite into but it is supposed to help keep my teeth clean. At first she kept trying to switch me to just one brand but I like to play with my food. If she puts more Nutro than Purina, I like to pick out all the Purina first. If she puts more Purina than Nutro, I like to pick out all the Nutro first. It drives her crazy coz she does not know why I do that. And so she can't tell which one I really like so she keeps buying both. I just like the variety. She also bought me toys that can hold the food. I have a Kong that we use to hold one brand of kibble and a violet bone that holds the other brand. It is fun getting the food out of the toys. Makes meal time more interesting as opposed to just eating from my bowl. If my food is not in the toy, sometimes I like to toss each piece in the air and try to catch it. Sometimes I like to put my food on the floor, walk away then run back and pounce on it. It really makes meal time more fun. Mom thinks I am nuts. She would rather I eat all my food from my bowl and all at once. I like to eat multiple times throughout the day. I also like eating when she is eating as well. Sometimes she hides biscuits in the backyard and lets me go hunting for them. That is also fun.

My First Sleep Over

GrandMa and Mommie went out of town last week. I had my first sleep over at a friend's house. It was fun there. I got to go upstairs and jump on the furniture. Haha!!! Wish I could do that at home too. There were lots of people there but it was too hard to keep following everyone around. Sometimes I got to sleep on their patio and sometimes in the garage. The garage is very nice. There is a tv there that I could watch. I was not used to the place so I had peeing and pooping accidents in the house. Hope they are not mad at me. I will try to be better next time I go for a sleep over.

Some Attention Please

GrandMa does not play with me. She is always busy doing household chores. So to get her attention, I took her slippers and put them on the other side of the room. Haha! Unfortunately, the attention I got was not what I wanted. I got scolded. Waaah! So now I just follow her around to get her attention. She says I am like a shadow.

American Eskimo vs Japanese Spitz

GrandMa is here for a visit. She thought I would be a small doggie. She is not used to seeing so much fur. She has not seen an American Eskimo before but said I looked just like a Japanese Spitz. What is the difference between an American Eskimo and Japanese Spitz anyway? Mommie did some research. The Japanese Spitz is always white. American Eskimo can be white with a bit of cream or biscuit color. I have some cream color on my back and tail. Also the Japanese Spitz is ok even if it is hot or cold. Eskies prefer colder climates. We do not tolerate the heat very well. The standard sized Eskie is slightly bigger than the Japanese Spitz. The Japanese Spitz is always small. They are around 12-14 inches and weigh up to 13 pounds. There was not a lot of information about the differences. Most of the stuff she found just said that the country of origin and ancestry are different so one breed should not be mistaken for the other. American Eskimos are believed to be descendants of the German Spitz and the Japanese Spitzes from the Siberian Samoyed. And everything else is pretty much the same between the two breeds. If you look at pictures, you would not be able to tell one breed from the other. They all look the same to me. Anyway, back to GrandMa. She is not sure what to do with me while Mommie is away at the office so I have been demoted to staying in the backyard until Mommie gets home. I found a nice shade near the door where I can sleep the afternoon away.

Caught Again!

Mommie removed the fence yesterday in preparation for GrandMa's visit. So here was my chance to go up again. So I snuck up really quietly. I got to the fourth step before Mom found out. Darn!
