Maggie’s Doing Great

Hi Laura    I finally had a minute to check my emails and saw you had written to me. I don’t open my computer daily so sometimes it takes me a bit to get back to people   Maggie is doing very well. No problem with the cats, if she gets too close they give a quick hiss and she backs off. But they are around her all day and she seems to like them very much. I think they like her too. She enjoys her new yard – lots to smell and investigate. Our vet said she is in good shape and probably @ 8 years old as you stated. We got her a supply of Heartgard and flea/tick preventative so we can keep her on schedule. Pretty much everything has been about Maggie since we got her. She had a bath and grooming yesterday and did wonderful. The groomers said she was a very good dog but didn’t like the big blow dryers so they used the hand held type. She smells very nice and her fur is clean and shiny. She adores the car and goes to sleep as soon it starts moving!   We took her for a nice walk yesterday in a local park and she had a ball. We are off again today to get her a harness, our vet recommended the Easy Walk and some more treats and supplies. I have a bed on order for her and a new collar and leash.   The only thing we have to work on is housetraining. She is fine all night but doesn’t understand she has to GO outside during the day. If need be, we will get some professional training but for now we are treating her like a puppy and doing basic housetraining with her.   I will try to get you a pic of Maggie but I am not that good at it. I have a basic phone but may be able to still email you something. I will be getting a disposable camera to take photos of her but I will try over the computer as well.   I hope Mae and the others are fine.   Thank you for Maggie – we all think she is a really great dog – very sweet and gentle. She is actually laying by my side right now. She pretty much stays close to me if I am around, if not she is sure to find either mom or dad for company! Have a great weekend! Linda 🙂

Princess’s 2 Year Update

Hi Laura Just a note to let you know that Princess continues to thrive and is a quirky funny little girl.  Its been almost 2 years since we adopted her and we could not be happier we made that choice. She now weights  almost 16 pounds and has a full coat. She has several squeaky toys and is particularly attached to one which is a little lamb, (it goes to bed with her and gets up with her every day).  She also has the remains of another stuffed toy that is now 3 pieces of purple cloth.  No squeak in that one.  The 3 pieces of rag are also her security blankets I guess because they also go to bed with her every night.  She has us very well trained. She loves to run out and chase the ducks and squirrels out of the yard.  The geese are a different story.  She respects them, and we have to chase them.  They make such a mess. Lucy is 11 now and we are going for her routine vet visit today with her. Princess will go along for the ride and get weighed.  Lucy has had a few problems this past year and we put up a ramp for her to go up and down off the deck, they both use it.  Princess and her get along very well.   Hope all is well with you.  I still look at the dogs frequently on your website.    Have a good day, Mary 

Lucky’s Update

Hi Laura, I think we’ve had Lucky for about 6 wks now, give or take, but it seems like a life time! He is so wonderful and so sweet and so LAZY! LOL! 🙂 Walking him is a chore for sure.  He is still very much in love with Connor but adores all children! Such a sweet gentile dog.  We can pick him up and carry him all over the place with no issues.  He is still skidish of strangers and will hide behind one of us but if they approach him slowly before they know it they have a lap dog. When he feels up to it he runs around the yard with Roxi chasing his favorite toy, tennis balls!  Thank you again for letting us love him and for choosing us to be his forever home!!! Jill, Brewster, Allissa & Connor  

Blitz Has A New Home

Blitz has a new home!! It was well worth the wait!! Here she is with her mom and twin sister Astrid!!!  

Popi Update

Hi Laura, Here’s our latest family portrait! Popi is a completely different dog from when we first got him. He’s the sweetest who loves his belly rubs. Tata is very protective of him. We’re all settled in and happy 🙂 Thanks again to Protectors of Animals.

Update on Nalla

Hey Laura.  Can you believe it’s been a year this month since we brought Nalla home? She’s settled in sooo well for us. She & Shabba are great friends; chasing each other in the yard, laying on each other. She loves sitting on my lap and laying next to Melisa on the couch. She’s truly Melisa’s girl, following her around the house. She sleeps in our bed. She always announces herself when she goes outside. She’s still very afraid of others but is getting a little more comfortable when we have others over. She’ll hide when someone is here but not as afraid to move around the house after they’re gone. She’s been a good fit for us. She’s not afraid or confused about us when we come home anymore. Shabba has taught her how to be a dog in a regular home. Having her around has been good for him too. If she could I’m sure she would send love your way! Tony Gregory
