Update on Emmie

We got an update from Emmie's new owners. They say she sits and sleeps with her grandma all day on the ottoman, and is very happy when her owners get home.

Sometimes when Emmie is sleeping, she snores! Congratulations to Emmie and her new family!

Update on Storm

We got an update from Storm's adopter:

"Storm is doing great! He is settled in now and is spoiled! He goes to doggy day camp once a week, as well as his favorite dog park on the weekends where he has lots of husky friends. He gets along great with my boyfriend's dogs too. I'm so grateful to your rescue. I couldn't ask for a better dog! I attached some of my favorite pics of Storm."

Congratulations Storm!

Lucky is Doing Great!

We got a 1 year update on Lucky. Here is what his mom had to say:
It's so nice of you to check in on Lucky. Crazy to think that he's been with us for a year already, wow! We drove down to North Carolina to visit Rich's mom this weekend, so right now our baby is still at the kennel and will be home this afternoon.

He's doing great - a little more relaxed (as much as can be expected from a husky) and definitely into a routine, which is good for all of us. He's still having trouble with greeting people and also other dogs, gets a little too excited. He doesn't seem to understand that he should approach other dogs by sniffing their butts and goes straight for their noses. I'm sure you know how well that can go over LOL! He and Rich have a new hobby though - bike riding! We got him a Walky-dog bike leash and harness, and the two of them are the hit of the neighborhood on the weekends. They both get great exercise and they can do a little "boy bonding". I'm trying to get a good picture of this to send you.

As you can see, this big white jerk has definitely made a place for himself in our home and our hearts and we can't imagine not having him. Thank you again for bringing him to us!

It looks and sounds like he has the perfect home. Congratulations Lucky and family!

Brody Was Adopted!

Brody was adopted on Sunday, July 12! Here is the update his former foster parents gave a few days later:

I spoke with Carol last night regarding Brody's status at his new home. They are extremely happy with him so far. They said that he was a little nervous and constantly followed them around to make sure they were always in his sight. But he has been a complete sweetheart since he's been there. Carol said that Koda, their 5 yr old female husky, is already starting to play with him and has him pinned on his back. Brody has not shown any aggression whatsoever. For Koda to do this is a big deal; Carol told us that she doesn't seem to know quite how to play with other dogs. Maybe Brody can teach her!

They also said on Sunday while we were there that they probably wouldn't let him sleep in the bed with them. Yesterday when we spoke, she admitted that they felt bad for him being nervous and a little anxious, so they let him sleep in the bed with them. :) They learned rather quickly just how graceful he is when he gets in and out!

Overall, they said they have completely fallen in love with him and are really happy with the choice that they made. Finally, I think, after lots of traveling around for him, Brody seems to have found his final home. We'll update again as we learn more.

Here are some photos!

Looks like Brody is doing a great job of teaching Koda how to play! Congratulations Brody and family!

Memorial to Gidget

On June 22nd, 2009, 3 year old Gidget was hit by a car after she escaped from her collar while on a walk. Gidget's mom was with her, and she was rushed to an emergency hospital where staff performed CPR and worked on Gidget for 45 minutes, but poor Gidget did not survive. Gidget's parents, Michele and Manny, have created a memorial for Gidget. Please feel free to leave them some words of comfort, it will mean a lot to them. Gidget had a wonderful life with her family. She went to work with Michelle most days, they took her hiking, she went to the dog park a lot. She even took over her own couch at home and made it her own bed. Our hearts and prayers go out to Michelle, Manny and their family, all of whom loved Gidget. Rest in peace Gidget. All dogs should be as lucky to be as loved as you were.
