Gunner

Hi Cheryl & Walt & NASAP, Well it has been just over two months since we adopted our big hunka love - Gunner! And what a smart decision it was for us that I CHECK the site first thing every morning and that morning, there he was and I called immediately and left a message for the foster parents to call us. Later we learned that we were the first of at least nine calls for him. Cheryl & Walt were kind enough to bring Gunner to our home so that he could meet our crew - 2 large female dogs and 5 cats. Well he just walked past the cats and checked out the girls and I'm sure he thought to himself that in short ORDER he would have them swooning over him. And who wouldn't swoon over such a handsome, intelligent dude? Well 2 days later, on Good Friday, they brought him back to stay. We were so excited to get Gunner. In many ways he is alot like our beloved Kayla who died FROM cancer in March but in the next breath, he is unlike any other dog I have ever had. Probably because he is the first male dog I have ever had and he is a typiical boy - strong, determined, loves to play ball & Frisbee, is a big mush, loves to kiss - us,the girls and the cats. He loves to play ball so much that on Easter Sunday, he completely tuckered out all 15 people that were at our home. It was then that we realized, with some horror, that we didn't find out where his "Off" switch was until quite by accident, I told him that I would throw just one more ball and then "Enough". That was it, the "Off" switch. He just wheels around and lies down and chews on the ball. Gunner has taught us a variety of games such as high ball, bouncy ball, bowling ball, to name a few. Of course they are his games so we abide by his rules. What an incredibly intelligent, affectionate dog. He looks right INTO our eyes with such love and understanding. Gunner loves his walks with his sisters, Roxie & Harlee and has captured my friend's heart as well since her & I take the 3 out together. What can I say. We feel so blessed to have our boy and to watch him play, you would never guess that he is about to celebrate his 8th birthday. We feel as though we have always had him which is a great testament to folks out there who will only consider adopting a puppy. Gunner is our puppy and we love him to pieces. Thank you to all of you at NASAP for your great work. Bryant, Colleen, Gunner, Roxie, Harlee, Tiggy, BooDee, Magic, Lolei and Oven Mitt

Molly

Hello Genevieve & NASAP, Just wanted to send an UPDATE on Arabesque, now Molly, who we adopted May 19th.We are really enjoying HAVING Molly in our lives. Even my husband, who was lukewarm to the idea of getting a dog, loves her! In fact, I wouldnt be surprised if she ends up being his dog. He has even been known to take Molly on his rounds at the farm! Molly enjoys playing with our 3 kids outside and shows a great disposition with them. She really enjoys chasing and pushing a soccer ball around, which is really funny to watch! I hope she keeps this trick up as she gets older. She will also chase a tennis ball or Frisbee, but hasnt quite got the hang of bringing them back yet! Molly is very interested in making friends with our cat, Max, but so far Max is not being very cooperative, which frustrates Molly, who only wants to play. Molly is learning how to go to the bushes for her bathroom breaks and enjoys going for walks on her leash. We are working on stopping her FROM jumping and nipping at peoples heels/clothes; she just gets too excited and wants to play with everyone! At night, Molly goes in her kennel and does not whine or complain about that at all. She seems very secure in there and does not have any accidents overnight. Molly has added a lot of life to our yard and it is great to see the kids get home and greet her. She seems to make them want to go outside a lot more just so they can play with her, which is great for the 2 boys (ages 8 & 10) who were beginning to SHOW too much interest in TV! Our 4 year old daughters favorite thing is to give Molly her treats. Molly has had a spacious chain-link pen built for her, which is important as we live on a secondary highway. It was interesting to see my farm-boy husband, whose attitude usually is dogs dont belong in a pen, build the enclosure for her within a week of her being home. She does not actually spend much time in it, as she prefers to remain close to the house, and (so far) does not wander. However, It is reassuring to have a spot for her to go when there is no one home. The times when she has been left in the pen, she has been fine. The funniest thing about Molly is her ears. When I picked her up FROM NASAP as a puppy, she had these adorable little floppy ears. Within 10 days of being home, those ears migrated to the top of her head and now stick straight up! I cant get over the change! Her legs are also growing a mile a minute while her head and body seem to stay the same size. Everybody looks at her and wonders how tall she is going to get. She is all legs and ears right now! I am attaching a photo, but boy, was it hard to take a picture of her. She never stands still! I have 2 more weeks of teaching and then I am home indefinitely as we will be HAVING an addition to the family in the fall. I am looking forward to spending lots of time in the yard with Molly and the kids. I know that as she gets older and develops her manners she will add a lot of fun to our lives. We are all looking forward to taking her camping with us! Thanks for the opportunity to adopt Molly! Michelle Ozipko and family

Molly

I got Molly almost exactly a year ago FROM NASAP, after she was abandoned by her mother at a week old. When I first saw her she was practically bald FROM stress-related hair-loss so it's a bit of a shock what she grew into! She is the sweetest little cat imaginable.

Buffy

Buffy has been adopted to a nice young veterinarian and his wife. She gets to play with her new doggy "sister" Jessie and will be very well loved and spoiled in her new home. Lucky Buffy.

Private Ryan

Private Ryan was adopted tonight just after Flora went to her new home. It's a sad day for his foster mom but a great day for Pte. Ryan as he has gone to live with a very nice young man who will keep him in good company and train him well. Pte. Ryan will have Mikey the rotti to play with who his new "grandparents" adopted FROM Nasap a few years ago. Ryan will have two cats and a snake to hang out with as well. Have fun Private Ryan but watch out for that snake! NOTE: Private Ryan was one of the 6 injured puppies NASAP rescued FROM the Alberta SPCA seizure at a property near Buck Lake.

Ricki

In December I adopted Ricki FROM you. We have re-named her Missy - a name she quickly learned. When we first brought her home it was very difficult. We had a hard first few months with her, understandably. We had to retrain her to go potty outside and she was very subdued for a while. But, we got through it all, and she has not had an accident in about 2 months now. We are very proud of her. And she loves to play with her toys, which we buy her endlessly of course. She is most definitely spoiled, and she knows it too. She is definitely the center of our family. I don't know what I would do without her, even when she misbehaves, lol!! I would like to thank the people at NASAP and Missy's foster home for taking good care of her so that we could have the opportunity to have her in our family.
