Timber Image

This is a big thank you to foster Mom, Mary. We adopted Timber a year ago and it's as if he has always been part of the family. He is the true "gentle giant". He is so laid back and expects that everyone will love him, which is mostly true. He goes to daycare twice a week and hangs with us the rest of the time. He loves going out to the farm, his walks and rides in the truck. If we ever threw a party for him our yard would be full of his doggy friends and even a few pussy cats. He is THE BEST!!

Good day.  I am the one who adopted Daisy aka Meika.  Just wanted to let you know she is doing good.  
Had her spayed at the end of September. She is the one on the left in this picture.

Finley (was Pudge)

I wanted to update you all on Pudge. We call him Finley now - he's not pudgey anymore.

He's quite lean and energetic - loves to run and fetch, and dig (sigh). The picture I've attached was taken a couple of months ago. He's even bigger now.

He's doing well. Fairly obedient. Smart and cheeky. We love him to bits.



Rosie Image

Sorry for the delay in replying. Rosie is a joy, although she is still having trouble figuring out that our house is not one giant bathroom. She also still chews almost everything; we've tried a number of dog toys and treats but she can chew a $10 dog toy to shreds in a matter of minutes. She can chew a Kong to pieces! A bull pizzle lasts only a little longer. We're hoping she'll outgrow her taste for leather shoes. Rosie gets along well with our older dog, Nellie (also a rescue, but from SNAP). They like to be together and often lie down next to each other (see pictures). She's very affectionate with people, too, and my teens and their friends love her. She loves to let them pick her up; she's learned to "hug" them with her front paws. She gets so excited when one of us comes home after being out for a few hours. We certainly have no regrets about adopting Rosie, and we are very happy that she's part of our family.

Marky (now Lycan)

Marky (now Lycan) Image

Our puppy Marky, who we renamed Lycan, is doing great! He was extremely easy to house-train (which is always nice) and only had two accidents inside! He loves coming everywhere with us, car rides and walks, and September long weekend my husband and I took him to Banff with us. He had so much fun hiking and trying to catch squirrels. He recently graduated from the Puppy Basics class at The Edmonton Humane Society and is currently attending Puppy Intermediate there. He is an extremely smart dog and easy to train because he's so food motivated. He got to try out some agility equipment during the last class of Puppy Basics and he took right to it! No fear at all (even of the tippy board). So once he's old enough we want to put him in agility classes as well. His neutering surgery is scheduled for September 27th, so once that is complete I will fax the certificate as you requested.We love having Lycan in our family and have all been having so much fun together. We're so glad we got the chance to give Lycan a forever home!


Blossom Image

We adopted out cat, Blossom, in May and want to report that she is absolutely AWESOME!!!  She has blended in  great right from the very first day!  She is best friends not only with us but also with our dog.  We could not have asked for a better addition to our family!!  Thank you to Laura - her "foster home" mother that we picked Blossom up from, and also to NASAP!!

Patch (now Titan)

Patch (now Titan) Image

Titan is doing very well. He had grown lots. He loves going to the dog park with our other dog. He wants to play with a cat Martin so badly but Martin still doesn't have the patience for him. When he first came to us he was alittle antisocial and didn't want to cuddle. Now he doesn't know the meaning of personal We enjoy and love him in our family very much. Thank you for all you do with the animals at NASAP.

Precious (now Portia)

Portia is doing really well.   When I first got her, she didn't walk much and had difficulty with stairs ... we go on at least 3 walks a day and she is good with the stairs.  She is still a little shy around some people but she loves other dogs and my cat and is a quiet well behaved sweet dog.  She likes to just hang out.   We all love her even though only rarely does she show much affection, but when she does, it's wonderful to see.  She is very well cared for and gets a lot of affection from our family.
