Cameron (Blinky)

Hi Jenny & Pat,
It's Cameron (formerly known as Blinky) here and I have been in a great new home now for over 3 fantastic months.  I love my new forever home and my new dads are awesome.  They don't know it, but I totally rule this place.  I always make them go to the store and buy me new toys, like yarn and mice with catnip.  At night I like to cuddle up with them or attack their feet for a bit.  (Which I don't think they like, but I don't care, as I am the boss!!)  I have a friend named Spencer.  He is a Betta fish and one day I hope to catch him, but he seems to be very hard to catch....  I even knocked over the lava lamp trying to get him, but alas I failed.  While they both are at work, I love spending my days looking out the window and dreaming of catching the many birds that fly around.  One of my favourite things is the red dot (laser pointer) that appears and then disappears, I love chasing it all over the place.  It keeps me very active going up and down the stairs.  I also like to play with my mice and hide it under the bathroom door and then mysteriously, it reappears to my feet and then I bat it under again.  Sometimes this can go on for hours.  They don't like me on the kitchen counters, but little do they know that when they are at work, I am on them all day long, until I hear them get home.  I love the scratching post that I have, it keeps my nails trimmed as I hate getting them clipped.  Every time I get put in the travel kennel, I get scared, but then I realize I will return to my forever home.  I pretty much get whatever I want and I feel so loved here.  I am so glad that they picked me to adopt and have as their friend, thanks NASAP for helping me get to where I am at, my home for life!!
Love forever,
Cameron

Rosie

Hi everyone it's Rosie checking back with the wonderful people at NASAP.  It's been over a year. Thanks for finding me such a wonderful family to be with.  At first I was a little worried about the dad, but he turned out to be a wonderful pack-leader.  Every morning he takes me on a twenty minute walk, and then he plays fetch with me when he comes back from work. I especially love when he uses the tennis racket and gets the ball into the high grass or trees. He makes sure I'm well taken care of with lots of pets and he even talks to me! There is also a 7 year old boy who gives me so much love.  He loves to race with me.  He recently taught me how to say hello by shaking a paw, and I get to sleep each night on his bed and keep him warm (or maybe he is keeping me warm).  Then there is the mom.  When she cooks or makes lunches I'm guaranteed to get some vegetables to snack on, and I can always rely on her for some kind words and pets.  I'm not the only animal in the family.  I have a brother named Chico.  They call him a cat but I find that hard to believe.  He has the same colours as I do and we play lots together.  I especially like cleaning his ears and face.  There is another cat named Snuggles, but I rarely see her.  I know she is big and grey but I can't even tell you what she smells like.  We have an agreement - I give her space and she gives me mine! This family includes me in everything they do. I have gone camping and on hikes with them many times. I'm so glad NASAP was able to find me a great forever home.

Asia

Just thought I'd send you the most recent on Asia.
She just graduated from Puppy Class tonight so I figured you might like to see some pictures.   She is doing very well.  Her personality only gets stronger by the day.  She's still quite the little runt but it definitely works in her favour when she's playing!  And we found out on Sunday morning that she is definitely going to be a snow dog as well!! haha ... she loved the snow that morning!  We take her in on Friday to get her spayed and then she will be spoiled rotten for the next week.

Wiley

Wiley is a 6 yr old Australian Cattle Dog x that we adopted on August 1, 2007.  She was cared for by the most amazing foster family for nearly 2 months until we found her @ NASAP.  We cannot believe how fortunate we are to have adopted Wiley into our family, as she is simply an outstanding dog!  Besides being a very pretty girl, Wiley is gentle and smart, playful and loving, clever, funny, and so much more.  We have yet to see any bad habits from her at all.  Wiley loves our kids and she seems to enjoy the city life of car rides, coffee shops and dog runs equally as much as the country life of camping, hiking trails and interesting critter smells.  She is truly a perfect fit for our family and we could not have wished for a better dog.  Our previous three dogs (2 rescues/1 adopted from a friend) all lived very long and full lives of 16-17+ years.  We look forward to spending many years with Wiley by our side, as part of our family.  A true friend for life!  We would like to thank NASAP and all of its volunteers, especially Wiley's foster family for all the great work they do.

Keisha

Keisha Image

It’s been almost a year now since we adopted Keisha. We had just lost our American Eskimo, Mollie, after she dug under a fence built to protect her and ran out onto the highway. Less than a week later I was looking on the internet, found the NASAP site, and saw Keisha. Something told me even though we were still grieving that I should meet Keisha. It turned out that she had been surrendered under very unfortunate circumstances, and so my heart (what was left of it) went out to her. She was 11 years old, as well, and I knew a lot of potential adopters would be wary of taking an older dog. I drove out to Devon to where she was being cared for, and took our other dog Bailey with us for the meeting. I fell in love with Keisha almost from the moment I saw her, but Bailey wasn’t so sure. It took us a while to get the two of them calm enough to interact in the same space, but eventually they settled down and began to get acquainted. I adopted her then and there and will never regret it. Keisha has become another member of our family and our lives wouldn’t be the same without her. You’d never know she’s 12 years old, the way she runs around our acreage.

 

Our sincere thanks go to NASAP for the work they do.

Carmel and Smoky

Carmel and Smoky Image

Hi Jenny,
Well it's be almost a month since I adopted Carmel and Smoky (formerly Ash).....  Today they are 3 months old.  I must be doing something right, because they have almost doubled in size since I got them!!!
They are really good cats and I think they have adjusted very well to their new home. Smoky is just a happy go lucky kind of guy that doesn't complain much, really friendly and trusting.... Carmel, on the other hand, is a little more reserved and needs time to make sure she really really likes you, then you can pet her......she doesn't need much time to find out she loves people and loves to get her pets!   Carmel is also very talkative, where Smoky is a quiet little dude.  They are fun and I'm glad I got them, they have already brought me tons of laughs and lots of company and companionship.

It's Seven with an update! My name was formally Beano and now it's lucky number Seven! I am loving my new home! I am spoiled rotten and even get to hang out with a cat!! I have heard my mom and dad say many times that I am a fabulous puppy and they could not ask for anything more!!

Niblick

Hi Delaine,
Just thought I would let you know how things are going.
You would think he knew that the adoption papers were signed. The next night, for the first time, he took a bite out of one of the corners of the bedroom walls. Luckily he doesn't take very big bites. He also started running around Brad's legs like he was possessed. Obviously celebrating. We all had a good laugh. He still does it every once in a while if you stand still too long. He attacks the broom and growls at it if I try to sweep up after him: very amusing. My niece thought it was the most amazing thing having a real live Easter Bunny on Easter morning. He likes to run round our bedroom at 3:00 in the morning. If you close him out of the room he scratches at the door to get let back in.
Niblick has claimed every room upstairs as his own. When he wants to be alone he crawls under our bed. Of course half the time Mitchell crawls under there with him. He seems to be loving all the attention. He actually runs at us if we stop patting him and he wasn't done yet.
We just love having him around. As pets go he's very well behaved and except for the 3 AM hoe downs he's very quiet.
He's settled in very nicely and is considered part of the family.
Bye for now,
Alison
