Finian (Formerly Tucker)

Hi Laura,

Here is the latest picture of the our little guy now known as Finian. I just didn't like the name Tucker very much. Finian's a male name for red heads.


Annie (formerly Ena) and Poppy

Ena (now Annie) is doing very well, indeed.  She gets along well with her big brother Alex, and her little (but older) sister, Poppy (a "graduate" of the NASAP class of 2004 - back then she was 'Pinto').  Annie loves chasing Alex, or any other dogs, around at the off-leash park.  She doesn't like the cold weather very much, though, so her main workouts now are running up and down the sidewalk in front of our house at full speed.  She can do this as much as she wants, and still be close to the house for that instant when it suddenly gets too cold to be outside.

She has developed some gastrointestinal problems and has been on a special diet since shortly after we brought her home.  She has responded well to this diet, though, and is pretty much just a ball of energy most of the time.  This energy gets her into trouble sometimes.  When she can't run around all she wants, she likes to rip into garbage bags, or find things to eat (mostly inedible things and particularly coasters) around the house.  This hasn't been a serious problem, though, just mischief.

You may recall the "cloud" of grey hair that stuck out of Annie's coat everywhere and every which way.  We thought that was just part of her mixed breedness, but a groomer had other ideas.  She got all that hair out of her coat, revealing a sleeker and much darker real coat underneath.  She was like a different dog when I picked her up from the groomer!  Now, we take her back every couple of months to get her touched up.

I should give an update on Poppy, too, while I'm at it.  She was already missing her left eye when we got her from NASAP early in 2004, but a couple of years later, her right eye started hemorrhaging spontaneously.  We had to have it removed, but Poppy bounced back immediately, and has been a healthy, active member of our family ever since - well, until the past couple of months.  She was diagnosed with cancer at the beginning of September, but her medicines have slowed down the progress of the disease, and she's doing fairly well, all things considered.  But she doesn't have too much time left, and we will be sorely grief stricken when she passes.  We will never forget her, and we will still have Annie and Alex to help us cope with her loss.

Enjoy the pictures, and keep up the good work!

Sophie (formerly Josie), being sassy for the camera. Hands down the sweetest and most affectionate cat we've ever known, and the loudest purr. She's healed the broken heart of our daughter who had lost her kittyboy to FIP.

We adopted Charlie [brother of Petey, Hannah and Marvin].  five years ago. He is the tabby on the right and he is with one of his best friends, Eddy [formerly Keeper, who was adopted two years ago by our daughter]. We love these boys very much. When they visit each other they love to chase each other all over the house. Amazingly, they both love to play fetch.....must be a tabby thing!  We appreciate all the work that NASAP does to find great homes for so many loving pets!
