Snuffy & new family ...
Just wanted to let you know that Snuffy, who I renamed Charlie is doing great.
He loves his new friend Coco, my 4 yr old Papillion (see attached photo) and
my four cats. Charlie and Coco play tug-a-war with the toys and take turns chasing
each other around the backyard. He's also made friends with other dogs we meet
on our daily walks. He's on antibiotics and ear drops and is recovering from
the kennel cough. He's quite the little love. Thank you rescuing him and the
best of luck with your mission of saving great dogs... Bobbi [Jan. 07, 2002]
I just want to let everyone know how happy I am with my new family. I've fully
recovered from my ear infection and am feeling great. I have attach a photo
of me with my new haircut and with my best friend Coco, she's the little black
blob on the pillow behind me. She and I love to play tug-a-war with toys and
to chase each other around the house and backyard. I also live with 4 cats who
just love for me to chase them! Mom takes me and Coco for long walks everyday.
I've made friends with many other dogs in my
neighborhood, including Bichons, Golden Retrievers, Schnoodles, and the best
type, Mutts. After a long day of playing and following my mom everywhere, Ilove
to snuggle next to my mom in bed and don't mind sharing the space with Coco
and the cats.
Thank you for saving
me and allowing my to have a happy and wonderful life full of love and companionship.
Good luck to everyone. Love, Charlie[Jan. 21, 2002]
Dasher is doing
great with us now. I can't imagine having a better dog! Your description of
her was so accurate -- she certainly is a "lively and chipper sort"
that does not act nine years old. She acts like a puppy with intermittent spurts
of maturity. I've taken her on a few short hikes, and she's able to walk a four
mile steep trail on her own with energy to spare. Not bad for a dog of her age
well to our routine. I mentioned to you earlier that she had some separation
anxiety when we were away at work. That's not a problem anymore. She stays quiet
and relaxed when we're gone, and even enjoys getting to do the things that she
can't do when we're home, like sleeping on the couch.
and is very receptive to training. She learns new commands, including hand signals,
in about 15 minutes. At times it seems like she can read our mind and does what
we want her to do before we even ask.
I've attached a
few pictures of her enjoying her new life with us (although she doesn't look
like she's enjoying wearing the Santa hat that much!). Thank you again for a
wonderful dog and great adoption experience. Keep up
the good work! -Bruce and Michele [Jan. 07, 2002]
A boy and his dog. Their best buds.
