Hi NASAP,

Just a short note to let you know that the dog our family adopted in December 2011, Poppy, is doing well.  She has adjusted well to her new home and enjoys going for walks, playing frisbee, and snuggling with our kids for story time.  She has become much better at riding in the van and being crated in the home when needed.  She continues to get along well with our guinea pig, and has made friends with many of the neighbours.  Many thanks to Lena for her assistance and patience in the adoption process.  We are glad that we found the right dog for our family, and (we think) Poppy is glad that she found the right family to love her.

Sincerely,
The MacLeod Family

Simon is a Rambuncious JOY!!  He has fit in very well with our other 2 cats, adult male + female. We absolutely LOVE HIM! Had his Vet check-up, gets 2nd shots the end of May, then this summer his little surgery. Thank you to Jill for fostering him until we discovered him on the NASAP website!

Update July 12, 2012
Well, little Simon is growing like a weed!  He had his little surgery last week and it only slowed him down for one day!  He has sure brightened up our household!  Has all his shots now and is good to grow and play for another year, before another Vet visit.  Our home is now complete with the 3 cats. Right now he is harassing Tyrone and ripping around 100 MPH!

Hi Les,
Dixie is still doing wonderful. She is just a big joy. At her "doctors visit" everything went well. She is healthy and on May 22 we have the next appointment for her vaccination. She gained weight and she still has a big appetite. Her favourite place is by the window so she can watch everything. I attached a few pictures from her.

Roonie (formerly Camille)

Camille quickly became Roonie (short for pooch-a-roonie). We got her when she was about 7 months old & she is  now 8 years old & is super sucky. She is a good hiker & moutain bike buddy. She is very healthy & happy. She had reconstructive surgery on a leg about 4 years ago & will never be 100% but is a good 95%. She is very a very good dog. She has a lot of freedom but knows her limits. Her older sister died 3 years ago but we got her another Rottie cross sister 2 years ago & they are THE BEST  of friends. They play very well together & are together 24 hours  a day. She also has a sister cat.
 
Long live Roonie
Long live NASAP

Abbey (formerly Sarah)

Just an update on Abbey,  our sweet girl adopted from NASAP 3 years ago. Abbey was a skinny, streetwise, teenage mom found under a school portable with a new litter of kittens in the bitter cold of winter. She lost half of one ear to frostbite. When we met her, the last of her kittens had just been adopted and she was alone. When we first saw her she was calmly walking around and purring. We picked her up and she snuggled into our neck and we knew she was meant to come home with us. When she first came home she was petrified though of the new place, sounds, smells and our lab, Goldie. She hid for over a month and it took lots of patience and work to get her settled in. Soon after, she began to follow our lab around and before we knew it, the two were inseparable and Abbey had so much love to give to anyone who came to her. She has the softest coat ever and a little pink nose. She is obsessed with spaghetti sauces we think she must have scavenged outside of an Italian restaurant and associates Italian food with comfort. Abbey and Goldie work in cahoots with one another sometimes. We think they plan "steak-outs". We've caught Abbey dragging a large marinating steak off the counter top and running with it and then Goldie and her going for it to eat it. The whole while abbey was on the counter Goldie was watching the door to see if anyone was coming. The two have become best buddies. Abbey looks through the glass doors to the backyard and watches Goldie and mews announcing , " my dog is out there." and stops mewing the moment Goldie comes in, then runs to her and licks her all over, kneads her and snuggles in with her. It's so endearing. When we got out newest addition a few onths ago, Abbey was not impressed with our energetic 6 month old Rosa. She would turn her nose up and bat at her and hiss. Within 6 weeks though the two have become companions as well,laying together and playing together. Abbey now goes to rosa to clean and lick her too. Abbey loves to sleep on your chest or feet and anyone who pets her soft coat immediately falls in love with her.We are very grateful for our dear Abbey.
Thank you NASAP
Angelique, Dave, Carter, Finn, Goldie and Rosa.

Goldie

We thought we would update you on our Goldie. We adopted Goldie through NASAP 9 years ago. We knew the moment we met her that we belonged to one another. Goldie has been a sweet companion to our 2 boys and our cats. My 13 said two words define her, " dumb love" because she's always so friendly, happy and lovey and a bit of a bull in a china shop. She loves to smile at everyone. In February we found a mast cancer tumor in her ear and were very worried about the diagnosis as it looked to be stage 2 of 3 and inoperable. Fortunately with the loving care of our vet and friend she was able to remove the tumor and Goldie is doing great. She's now 11 years old , we think, and she's going to live until she's even older. We decided to get another little dog now because Goldie's such a sweetie and would help the new dog integrate into the house and be trained. Rosa been our new addition and Goldie has taken her in and they play and sleep alongside one another. Goldie seems younger now and so happy that we brought her a friend. We love Goldie to bits.
Thank you NASAP for our dear Goldie.
David, Angelique, Carter, Finn, Goldie and Abbey.

Rosa

Just thought we'd let you know that Rosa has settled in and is doing really well. She has bonded with her pack - Goldie our lab, Abbey our cat and all the members of the family. At first when she arrived she was very afraid of everything, especially men and boys,other dogs and any strangers to her  She stuck closely to the only female adult in the house and cowered or piddled all the time if anyone else came near her or spoke to her. It took some time and with some great advice from a trainer, the boys and Dave began hand feeding her and walking her and she quickly learned within two days that she could rely on the males to meet her needs and began to trust them. She was like a different puppy after that. She's a sensitive smartie who is quick to learn and very responsive. Now she approaches strangers cautiously for hellos and pets, loves her daily walks at the off leash with the other dogs, heels beautifully off and on leash, has amazing recall off leash, cuddles with Goldie our lab and plays with her and even has started sleeping next to the cat and playing along with her. She's quick to snuggle you and enthusiastic about bones, balls and any stuffed toy with a squeaker in it. Her pretty eyes happy disposition,and cuddly nature have endeared her to everyone. She's been a wonderful addition to our family.
Thank you NASAP.
Carter, Finn, Angelique, Dave, Goldie , Abbey and Rosa.
