Happy Birthday Jaspen!

Today Jaspen was one year old. For her birthday we went to Dairy Queen and she had ice cream. She is such a sweetheart!

Lola now Lily!

Lola is now Lily.  She is settling in fine.  We are enjoying her very much.  Look forward to warm weather and walks.  She is very lively and a joy to have.  Thank you for checking in on us. 



Just wanted you to know how much we are enjoying this gorgeous, precious kitty. If she isn't napping, she keeps me company wherever I go. She does like to bolt out the door, so we need to really watch her. Visitors have had to retrieve her for us a couple of times. 

She liked to sleep on a top bunk, but we just sold the bunk beds. Now she sleeps in a little basket on Mark's desk. Anyway, thank you for all the great work you do and for this wonderful kitty.

Piper or Blue as we call her seems ok. I have apt set up with my vet on next Thursday to get her checked on. She is a great girl and my kids are loving her to death!  I do have a favor to ask you? My 8 year old is a very empathetic young lady and has asked me every day if the dog in you Kennal with only three legs has been adopted yet? If she does get adopted could you send me an email as Kelsey is very worried no one will want her? I have reassured her that she will be cared for and you will find her a nice home soon.

Thanks so much and we love Blue very much!
Thank you so much for everything,
Sincerely,  David

Sparkle now Mila!

Sparkle is doing great!! spoiled already..She and Rylie are playing and getting to know each other.  She seems to learn fast and is getting use to the routine.  Shes kenneled during the day with perodic breaks out for potty but snuggles and sleeps with my daughter threw the night.  She sleeps all night long and has from the first day we brought her home!  One thing I have to say is she does seem to have to potty ALOT.  We are having to let her out almost every 1/2 hour except when shes in her kennel and at night.  We have monitored her water intake but not sure if thats made to much of a difference.  She is scheduled for a vet check on March 15.  But all and all she is doing great and adjusting well. I will try and send photos soon!  Thank you again, shes a great addition to our family! 
P.S. We changed her name to Mila (me'la)

Cupid now Gunner!

We love our new addition! We have renamed him Gunner and he already knows his name. He has become my new traveling partner because he rides so well in the car. I still have to keep a close eye on him at home because he likes to chew, but he listens well when I tell him no. We are working on learning to walk on the leash without pulling and making progress as he now waits for me to go out the door first and no longer pulls me down the steps:) Thank you for all of the help we received during the adoption process. It has been a really good experience.

Things are going well!  Chip acclimated very well and he gets along with MacGyver.  They have some moments of sibling rivalry, but that is to be expected and we are working on that.  We have had some issues with him going potty in the house, but are working to modify that behavior and have been kenneling both dogs when we have to be gone for more than 30 minutes.  They don't spend much time alone - usually about 4 hours a day at the most.  He enjoys sleeping under the covers in our bed with his brother (MacGyver) - when it is time for bed both dogs jump in bed and run to the head of the bed to nose under the edge of the covers and burrow their way under.  They both really enjoy their play time although we have had to remove a toy or two that seemed to be the favorite and caused some arguments.  So far we think he is a good fit and our boys love him!  He spends lots of snuggle time with everyone and he seems to really love the boys.  If one person in the house is busy, he can always find another person lounging somewhere to snuggle up to.  I have attached a picture of him and MacGyver laying in bed and watching the morning news as they like to do when I get ready for work.  We will keep you posted on his progress!



I adopted Coco a couple weeks ago and she has had a positive effect and has become a great part of my family.  She sleeps with me every night and plays with me and kids every day.  Coco is fun and full of love.  Thank you

We are so pleased with "DREW"   who we renamed "LICKY< LICKY KNOWLER WICHERN....." all my grandkids have 4 names so Licky, Licky it  is. His eye still waters some and we clean it with warm soft wet cloth. His frozen part of his ear will soon fall off. He eats a lot  and has gained weight.  and litter box changed often. He is very loving.... and likes a lot of attention...he gets it. Thank you we're very pleased... Blessings

Sylvester now Cooper!

Sylvester, now Cooper, (because he's the size of a Mini Cooper) has settled in very well.  It didn't take him long at all to make himself to home. Right now he's curled up on the love seat napping.  He sleeps at the foot of my bed at night, then comes up and cuddles with me when the alarm goes off. Neither one of us wants to get out of bed then!
I don't have many pictures of him yet.  But here's the one I posted on Facebook so my friends could see my new friend.

Thank you for letting me adopt him.  He's going to be a lot of company for me.


Louise now Dobby!

Dobby and Moose
She is doing great! She is now known as Dobby! She has made friends with our other dog Moose. She is slowly learning to go outside in the frigid to go to the bathroom! She loves sitting in front of the vents in the house! I will be sure to send more pics!
