Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could

Are you a follower of Haiku By Ku?

Kuruk is an Alaskan Malamute like me. He writes haiku!


Oh Ku, can I dig too?

And, also like me, he lives with kitties!

Ku was rescued in 2011 as a part of a puppy mill bust in Alaska, and he traveled 3000 miles to be with his mama.

He and his mama wrote a book about the experience. It’s called, Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could.



It’s sad in that we learn the effects of living on the end of a chain in a puppy mill environment had on Kuruk.

It’s happy in that we see the positive transformation that love facilitated in Ku.

And your purchase of the book helps animal rescue efforts.

Kuruk and his mama, who gave him love and a forever home!

Kuruk and his mama, who gave him love and a forever home!

Now if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow the book for free as a part of their library program.

So why not check out this book! You can share some love with a fellow blogger, and enjoy a good read in the process!


About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?
