Kuruk: the Little Bear that Could

I was really sad to read that my brother from another mother – aka Ku – is not going to blog anymore, and instead will be concentrating on other interests.

Ku is a mallie like me. But unlike me, had a difficult start to life and had to be rescued from a puppy farm. He has written a book about his journey from a frightened starving pup, to the happy haiku-writing friend we all know and love. His book is called  Kuruk: the Little Bear that Could.

Mummy ordered his book for me a while ago, but at the same time ordered herself a book that wasn’t released yet. She assumed they would arrive separately, but they didn’t and I only got it yesterday. Silly mummy!

mummy, we have to read my book first!

Anyway, mummy read me Ku’s story straight away and I had to wipe away a tear. It’s difficult for a spoiled pup like me to imagine the hardship of not knowing love, of walkies, and the worst thing of all not knowing when the next meal would come, if it would at all.

Ku’s story is not a depressing tale though, it’s one of hope. It’s the story of how a pup who had such a hard start to life has overcame so many issues to become both loving and trusting.


I’m sorry you’re not blogging anymore, Ku, I’ll miss you. But I wish you well in your new ventures.

        This review is from: Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could (Kindle Edition)
        Bought this book yesterday and the minute I opened it to the sweet photo of Kuruk I was hooked. A beautifully written story of a very sad situation, puppy mills and animal abuse, turns lovely with the help of biped rescuers, vets, foster family, and an ultimate a loving home and mom. This is an endearing story that tugs at the readers heart and sets us free along with Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could, because ultimately, it’s love that heals and this sweet story is strewn with just that.

        Many warm wags and wiggles,
        Max, Bella, & biped Paulette

    We were surprised and saddened too.

  13. Mom and I read and loved Ku’s story in Mom’s Kindle. We will miss our friend, but hope we’ll see him around the blogosphere and the Facebook-sphere forever.

    Love and licks,

  14. Mum can’t read books like that, they make her too depressed.
    Dip and Elliot x

  15. We know Misaki, we were very sad and had leaky eyes when we heard that Ku was going to take time to adventure and no longer blog. We LOVED Ku’s book. Mom got us a copy too!

    Ku is one cool pup Misaki,xx Speedy

  17. Nylabluesmum says:

    WE too Misaki are saddened that Kuruk has taken ‘retirement’ but he is still around the blog world visiting & doing special blog posts!
    We too have a copy of his pawtastic book & Nylablue loves whe I read his story to her as she was a puppy mill breeding Queen so she relates to Ku’s story ALOT!
    Do not worry Misaki; many authors & athletes go into retirement & then return….maybe this will happen with Kuruk 😉
    Love Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue xoxoxo

  18. Ann Staub says:

    Oh how sad Misaki! Maybe he will still keep in touch with you. You could be doggy pen pals or something!

  19. A Husky Life says:

  20. pawedblog says:

    Hugs, Carrie, (Myfie, Ellie and Millie) x
