Hi Les, just an update on Tiff. She had her free check up and shots yesterday and is doing well. She is still a wickedly fun kitten and we are all happy  that she has adjusted so well. I think she is good for Charlie-they wrestle a lot and he is somewhat protective of her (she was playing with a toy and he was watching her- when the toy got stuck he got up and 'unstuck' it then went back to watching her play with it.) And if she starts to climb the curtains he will pull her down.

She goes for another shot in a month and then her spaying by the end of Feb. Will keep you posted.

Happy safe holidays from all of us to all of your family.

Hi Les,
Couldn't resist sharing this photo with you ... we look over last night and there's sweet Freddy with his arm around his new Pal.  I knew you'd appreciate this one!
Cheers,

Hello N.A.S.A.P.

  I’m coming up to my third anniversary of being with my new forever people.  Life is awesome for me. Here’s what I’ve been up to over the past few years…

   In my first summer with Mom and Dad, they bought a houseboat.  I had no idea how much fun this was going to be for me.  I spend my days swimming, running around the islands, chasing squirrels, birds and once even a beaver!  Once, when Mom caught a fish and released it back into the water, I tried to go in after it.  I just didn’t understand why she was throwing a perfectly good fish away.  Now they watch me closely when they catch and release the fish. I go for swims when it is hot or when I feel the need to do a lap or two around the houseboat; checking to be sure all is well. Sometime when Dad leaves in the little boat, I try swimming after him, but their on to me now, so I have to sit by Mom and stay.  Naptimes on the back deck in the sunrays are a most awesome way to spend a summer day!  It really is a dogs’ life!!! I love the outdoors and the lake, so this is a great summer home for me.

   Mom and Dad keep busy with me when we’re not on the boat.  We go to Penticton twice a year to visit the nice lady (Dad’s Mom) that feeds me scraps from her plate.  Mom and Dad keep telling her ‘If you’re going to give her scraps then you have to at least make her do a trick for it.’  So, I’ve learnt a lot of new tricks!  When I came to my forever home, I knew how to sit, shake a paw and lay down.  Since then, I’ve added to ‘my tricks I can do’ list.  I can now dance, roll over, give five (right paw) then give ten (left paw), speak (with my inside voice), speak louder (my outside voice) and lay on my side, just to mention a few.  They have lots more to teach me.  Right now, Mom is working on me weaving in-between her legs.  I’m getting it as I’m a quick learner.  They say that I’m the smartest dog they have ever owned!

   We go for our daily walks.  Mom and Dad know lots of forests, trails and fields to go sniffing in.  I tried all summer to catch a chipmunk, but their fast and hide well!  Now, I’m determined that I’m going to catch a mouse this winter in the fields! 

   I love running too!  Dad clocked me at 26 km/h.  That’s my fastest speed so far.  Most days I try to beat it.  Some days I just run around and chase the birds or the odd deer if I’m lucky.  It’s fun either way, as long as I’m running!

   That’s my life now.  I love it here at my forever home and I’m still grateful everyday that my forever parents love me as much as they do!  None of us can imagine our lives without each other! 

   Thanks again Nasap, for all your help in getting me here!

Little Raider all snuggled up with her new best friend, Molly, in her new home.   A far cry from where she was found, abandoned in the cold with her two siblings.    Lucky puppy.

Hazen

Hazen is doing really good, plays really well with my border collie, Megan and jumps on the back of my old Yorkshire Terrier, who doesnt mind at all. Shes called Tabatha now and is a right character up to all sorts of mischief if she can ! I am a dog sitter and dog walker and she has no fear of the dogs and gets on with them all when they're here, shes the one in charge. The picture is of my dad who came to visit us from Uk, she loved him.  She is getting spayed on Friday so i will send a copy as soon as. Thank you.

Sadie is great!  She has turned out to be the perfect cat, and roommate.  She was very nervous at first, but day by day she came around and slowly has developed to become the kitten she is today!  She loves looking into fish tanks and enjoys playing with anything string like.  Don't know what I would do withuot her to be honest - I'm always greeted with a happy meow and cuddle when I get home everyday.

Keeper now Eddy

Eddy is doing great and is getting so big. He had a vet visit on October 9, 2010 where he received his vaccination booster and a rabies vaccine.  He was given a clean bill of health but he did not appreciate getting his ears checked.  At that time I believe he weighed somewhere between 4-5 lbs but has grown substantially since. He was recently neutered on November 12, 2010 with no complications. My parents cat, Tigger, went with him to get some blood work and to be shaved like a lion so he was not lonely. I will fax in the neuter certificate ASAP!

 

He is currently livening with his sister, Princess Grace, and my parent’s 2 cats, Charlie and Tigger, until we move into our new condo – hopefully next weekend, just waiting to get some new flooring installed.  When I brought him home, he was not afraid of the other three cats at all and not hesitant to come out of the carrier to explore!  He is quite an energetic and outgoing little guy. Charlie, who is his larger twin, played with him right away. Surprisingly, the old cat, Tigger, who we thought would be the most unwelcoming didn’t seem to give two hoots. In fact, he was quite curious about the new little guy.  He must be getting mellow in his old age. My Siamese Princess Grace was the most put-out at the addition of a new kitten into her house - she hissed, growled, and hid for about 4 days, but this did not deter him from pursuing her.  She now tolerates him and once he settles down a bit, I am sure they will become friends. They do start to sleep together but it quickly degenerates into a wrestling match because Grace feels the need to clean him, which he in-turn thinks is a game.  He has decided that he loves to climb our Christmas tree...in fact he loves getting into all sorts of things. He especially loves water (weird) and sits by the sink and puts his head under the tap until it is soaked, the vacuum, and toilet paper!!!  After playing, he falls into deep sleeps in the living room chairs or the cat condo. He loves to cuddle and purrs with every touch. Thanks so much for giving me a wonderful new addition to our family!!!

 

Marla

Marla Image

Hi,
Marla is doing great. She is a high energy puppy so we bring her to the dog park almost everyday and she loves it. When she sees all the other dogs she gets so excited. She plays well with other dogs. We live on a acreage so when we're not at the park she has lots of room to run around. However, she started roaming too much and playing/chasing with the neighbours horses too much so we had to put an invisible fence around the yard. The fence is working fantastic. Now she understands where her boundaries are.
 
Despite being so high energy, in the house she is quiet. She loves to chew on her toys and she has been fairly good at only chewing on her toys. We knew that Marla was going to shed but we didn't realize that she was going to shed that much. Washing the floors/vacuuming the couches has now become a daily routine for us (the owners needed some training too). That was a big adjustment for us. Now that it is winter the shedding has decreased.
 
We have another dog, named Penelope, she is a Boston Terrier. Penelope has been the queen of the castle for 4 years so the introduction of Marla was a little adjustment for her. Penelope has now gotten use to Marla and they now play together... for the most part. Terriers are stubborn. When they think we are not looking we catch them sleeping together. Therefore, Marla can't be that bad.
 
Marla makes me and my husband laugh all the time. Despite being a lot of work, we love her and she is a great addition to our home.
