It’s been 3 years since I brought Kenzie (Adoption name Lucy). Still amazed at how lucky I got when I adopted her. I’ve owned Jack Russell’s half my life and been around relatives dogs most of my life and Kenzie is the best dog I’ve ever known, even if I don’t understand what is going on in her brain most of the time. Kenzie is happy & healthy, loves to cuddle up with people and is always eager to go to bed early and sl eep late.
Hi Laura and Mindy! I know I’ve given you an update, Mindy, but I wanted to send you both a quick email to let you know how Odin is doing. He has gotten much better about chewing on his leash when we get ready to take him out, but we are working with him to not pull so much when he gets excited. He will, however, chew on anything else he can find! Any toys with stuffing don’t stand a chance with him! Not even the ‘indestructible’ ones. So we have to stick to bones and treat filled kongs. He loves socks, paper towels and slippers the most, so we are working on teaching him that those things are not his. He is slowly learning. He can remain in a down-stay for a quite a while now, but gets board if the treats are not coming fast enough. He loves the snow! With this much he doesn’t know what to do other than to eat it! He will eat pretty much anything, or at least try to anyways, so he is always sniffing around to see what you have. And he loves laying on the bed, especially on the pillows! He’s a great dog and his personality is really one-of-a-kind. We love him so much. Thank you both for all of your help and for this opportunity. He has fit into our family as if he’s always been part of it.
Hi Matt, Great to hear from you — things have been going very well. We’ve had a great time getting to know Grommet… he’s really a very special and sweet dog! Sammie and he have been getting on great too, and it’s wonderful to watch them playing together, being such a great matchup of high energy personalities. I’ve attached a picture showing a rare quiet moment after they’d worn each other out. Last Sunday we also took them to Chatfield Hollow park, a popular dog walking venue, and Grommet had a nice afternoon encountering many other dogs big and small, and he was often the center of attention. Though shy at first, he was walking with confidence by the end of the outing. Thanks for checking in! We’re planning to take Grommet to meet our vet in another week or so, as recommended. Matt & Kyle
Yoda is doing very well. Yes, he has settled down and he rarely chews things he’s not supposed to. Also, he’s not humping anyone’s legs anymore. We all just love him so much. He’s very playful, but also cuddly and lovable. He’s laying next to me on the couch right now. I attached some pics from my camera, but have to learn how to send the ones on my phone. Thanks for checking in.
Charlie Charlie our handicapped dog is doing great things!! With his disability he’s teaching kids life lessons. Please read the short article of all the lessons he’s teaching in a school setting. Christy you’re doing great things with Charlie. It’s awesome to hear all your stories. Keep up the great work!
Hi Laura, Hope this email find you well! It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on our Pepe and I thought you and your team would like to know how he’s doing. Attached is a family photo from Thanksgiving. Pepe’s had his ups and downs health-wise. In December, he had surgery to remove 2 bladder stones. We’ve learned that he has irritable bowel syndrome and Addison’s disease. With steroids and a special diet, he is doing well most days. He’s still fussy about going for walks so my husband drives us about a mile from home and we get out and walk so he has no choice other than to walk, which he eventually enjoys! He is getting lots of love and affection which I think is helping him a lot, too. Hope the snow’s not too bad for you and you and all your rescue dogs are fine! Take Care! Nancy
