Just wanted to give you an UPDATE on "Shadow", who now is "Sadie". We adopted her FROM your wonderful organization in February. She's the one in Red. Here with her Friend "Franky". She has turned out to be a Great dog and friend to the family. We love her so much. And we Thank You All for the great job housing these Adoptee's. She is a real cuddly dog and loves to play in the sprinkler now that the weather is so hot. She is always by my side. So once again Thanks and keep up the good work. "Sadie Thanks you Too"

Chubbles and Randall

Chubbles and Randall Image

Chubbles and Randall have been with me for a over a year now and I would like to express my gratitude to the people at NASAP as well as the piggies former families for making it possible for me to meet my boys. I absolutely adore them and they get better veggies and fruits than I do. They have floor time in the kitchen whenever I am home and love hiding and napping in their various wooden and cardboard houses. Chubbles grandpa even built him a special wooden house with his name on it. Many people don't know how endearing guinea pigs can be. Both boys are paper trained and come when they are called by name. Chubbles makes his own pillow by pulling on his fleece blanket with his teeth and now lets me know when he wants food or attention by tugging sharply (once only!)on my pant leg or socks with his teeth. Randall stands on his hind legs and begs when he sees me coming with a plate of favorite goodies like tomatoes or oranges and he loves to play hide and seek with me when it is time for me to go to work and time for him to go back in their cage. Another favorite treat is the oat and lawn grasses I grow inside during the winter. This summer, in addition to the regular carrots, tomatoes, parsley, swiss chard, leaf lettuce and spinach, I am growing dandelion leaves for my guys even though my co-workers think Im nuts. Thank you NASAP for my boys. Georgina

Solo

Hello Genevieve and NASAP. My name is Solo. I now live in a very happy home with my big brother Reo, a chocolate lab! Reo and I play a lot and go on walks with my owner sisters Kate & Jen! My owner mom, Lynn takes Reo for walks down at the off leash park (I can not wait til I can go). My owner dad, Rich, takes my brother for runs (Dad says I have to be bigger to go with them). I am hoping that my mom Teagan gets adopted to a happy home just like the one I have! Here is a picture of me and my brother Reo! Solo (with help FROM Kate) Solo has become a wonderful addition to our family. He has made himself comfortable as if he always belonged with us. He and his big brother Reo have become inseparable and behave just like brother wrestling and chewing on sticks together. As Solo grows his marking are changing and we wonder just how big he is going to get. Solo is fascinated by the gold fish in our small pond and tries to catch them. In a week we will be able to take him down to Terwillegar Park (off leash). All of his brother Reos friends are looking forward to meeting him. Thanks to Genevieve and NASAP for taking such good care of our little guy and allowing us to adopt him in to our family. Lynn, Edmonton

Maverick

We adopted Maverick last year in May and we couldn't imagine our lives without him. Maverick lives on a farm and is top dog when it comes to any visitors arriving on his territory. Maverick loves to soak up the sun and when he's really in the mood he loves to play with his toys. Maverick's favorite game is to go INTO his toy box and scatter all of his toys all over the farm and when we go to pick them up he'll try and get them before we do and then run away. Thanks NASAP, without you we wouldn't have found "man's best friend".

Mercedes

Mercedes has been adopted tonight by a terrific family with two young boys, a stay at home mom and two cats. She will live on an acreage in the New Sarepta area - lucky girl! Mercedes has been renamed "Georgia" and will be very well loved and cared for by her new family. They promise to keep in touch because her foster family was very attached to her and it was hard to say goodbye even though she went to the best home ever. Have a super new life Georgia. Update: Georgia is doing good with everything. I love her! She travels awesome and kennels great. Loves to chew her toys which have tripled since we got her. Will keep you updated... Debbie

HAPPY

Here's an UPDATE on Lucky, formerly known as Happy. We adopted him at Easter, and our lives have not been the same since! We wanted another dog as we lost our beloved Bear about a year earlier and our existing dog, Pepper, was still grieving for her long time pal. Well, Lucky exploded INTO our lives and has kept us laughing ever since. He is just a big kid at heart - people do not believe that he is six. Most of the time at home he is a quiet boy who follows one of us around all the time, but the second that he smells his ball he becomes a quivering mass of excited dog (a BIG quivering mass at about 90 to 100 pounds!) He is happy to chase the ball as long as someone is willing to throw it, he has a great nose and always finds his ball. He is a great pal to Pepper and as he has such a gentle ntaure, has not been a threat to her, even though at 12.5 years old she definitely rules the roost. Lucky made himself at home right away and is well loved by both my husband and myself as well as our kids and grandkids too. We were delighted to discover that Lucky will come, sit, lie down, roll over and turn around all with such enthusiasm, and one of his favourite games is to chase the sun spot FROM the reflection of a watch face. My husband finds that throwing the ball for a while after a tough day is a great way to wind down and Lucky is just so very happy to fetch you cannot help smile at him. All in all, we are thrilled with him, he is such a wonderful addition to our family and we look forward to many years of enjoyment. He was even recognised recently at the off leash park by a lady who had almost adopted him herself!

Celeste

Celeste Image

Hi There: We changed Celeste's name to Lucy and she is really liking it and seems to recognize and come to it really well. Her and Lucky (our german shepherd) are always together. She never lets lucky get more than a few yards away FROM her and usually you will see her with him as his shadow. Lucky is teaching her all about life on the farm etc... and she is soaking it up. We ended up building a gorgeous dog run for her, however, she is an escape artist and even when we put Lucky in with her she always seems to find a way out and poor Lucky (who doesn't really need to be in there) is stuck in there. She loves being able to run free and doesn't wander very far FROM Lucky so that means she doesn't go off the property. We do not put either dog in the run during the day. They are outside all day and are home to greet us when we come home. They both are extremely happy to see us and love being around us when we are home. We really lucked out with her because we really wanted a dog that would stay home and she is the idea candidate. She does not pee at all only when she gets over excited. She is eating like a horse and loves to pack our shoes everywhere she goes, so we now have put all our shoes away. She has lots of toys around the property and in the house. After a busy day outside keeping watch (on the birds, etc.) around here, she is pretty pooed and loves to come inside. She sleeps inside with Lucky each night on her own bed close to Lucky. The two of them just love hanging out. She is really good around the tractor and cars. She is not afraid of anything (definitely a different dog than the one we picked up) but knows how to stay a good distance away so that she won't get hurt. She has gone to our neighbour (with Lucky) and introduced herself to him and his dog. She loves going INTO the field and jumps like a Kangaroo to be able to see over the long grass. Her and Lucky both do that as they like to know where each of them is. She really wants to say thank you for finding her such a good home. She is very much loved, Has settled in and is becoming a more confident dog daily plus, she is putting on weight. Again thank you and we really love her. Bye and thank you FROM Lucy and Lucky too.

Alli (formerly Buffy)

Alli (formerly Buffy) Image

Thought I would give you an UPDATE on the old buffy. We renamed her Alli, and she is responding well to the name. I can't believe how much she has grown in just over 2 weeks. She is adjusting so well to her new home and her sister is very good with her, they spend many afternoons running around the kitchen together. I have attached some pictures for you to see. This is one of her with her sister Jessie.
