Tizita the Alaskan

It was wonderful to be able to welcome Tizita into the United States with style but I thought it would also be important to specifically say, "Welcome to Alaska." Alaska is part of the United States but everything is . . . well . . . different here.

Nothing says Alaska like a pair of seal skin mukluks.

Step one of one's initiation into Alaska is to make peace with being bundled up. At first Tizita pretty much screamed and wrestled with us every time we got her snowsuit on but she is getting better and now seems excited to be going outside.


Spending the first 16 months of her life in an orphanage didn't afford Tizita many experiences with being in a car or a car seat. Well it turns out living in Bush Alaska doesn't either. She has however, gotten very comfortable on 4-wheelers and snowmachines.

She has had the opportunity to see some nice and dead wildlife during her time in Alaska. I wonder what she thinks of it all?

I laugh in the face of man eating mammals!

Big deal, I can open my mouth like that too.

What's with this lady and dead animals?

We are happy to report that Tizita likes musk ox meat and tundra berries. It's a good start toward developing an Alaskan palate.



She still has some things to learn about this crazy life but there are signs that she will be one tough Alaskan chick.

I just can't get over how cute she is! I'm sure it is a little different for her up there, but I'll bet you're right and she'll be one tough chick!
