Maggie

Maggie  Image

I've attached a recent photo of Maggie (formerly Angie), who is doing really well. She is a very happy dog who really likes people and other dogs. We've done some agility with her, which she really enjoys & is great at, and also a couple of obedience classes, which she also enjoyed even thought she isn't so great at it: she knows what she is supposed to do but often would rather roll around on the floor or nip at your ankles instead—still quite puppyish in some ways, I guess. Maggie's favourite thing is playing frisbee; she is very fast & very, very focused, as you can see from the photo. She & our other dog get along very well now, and having Maggie around seems to have rejuvenated our other dog, who will be 11 this year but runs around after Maggie & the frisbee as if she were much younger. 

Thanks again for fostering Maggie, and thanks to you & NASAP for helping us adopt her.

Charlotte

Charlotte is now called Leah.     She has been adopted by her foster home who fell in love with her as they worked with her trying to bring her out of her shell.   Leah is a very lucky dog and her new life is a far cry from the one she led before she ended up in the Pound.   So thank you Brigitte and family for surrounding this dog with love and allowing her to feel as if she belongs and is wanted.

Bartholomew

Bart has settled in with us amazingly. After a week it was like he'd always been here. He acts more like a dog than a cat.  He is always underfoot, on someone's knee or simply in the room where Lara is playing.  He is incredibly affectionate and is always asking for cuddles.  He is obsessed by food (well who can blame him - he's on a diet!) and can be very vocal when it gets near feeding time.  He plays with his toys and always sticks around even when being mauled by several kids at once.  He has fitted himself in with our family and has been the perfect choice for us.  We love him! Keep up the excellent work you and the other volunteers do.

To Laura my wonderful foster mom,
 
Thank you for taking such good care of me, I just wanted to let you know that I'm doing great in my new home, and my Mom and Dad both say my training is going really well and they are so proud of me.  I love going for my walks and getting to visit my other dog friends with my Mom, she takes me everywhere which is so much fun.
 
My Dad and I love to play and run around the house and backyard, I'm not sure who gets a better workout...lol  But I know I am certianly tired afterward.
 
I enclosed some pictures of me in my new home, one of me posing for my mom and the other of me doing one of my favorite things, people watching from our front window :)
 
I just wanted to give you an update on how well I'm doing and to say thank you for finding me such a wonderful family to love and take care of me.
 
All the best
Bella

Tegan (now Honey)

Hi Mary,
I never realised NASAP did a follow up but yeah, it's good to hear from you! Tegan - or Honey, as was her name change (!) is doing very well and is, as expected; a very "naughty", inquisitive puppy. She has a good temperament, seems good around children (plays with next door neighbour's children, chasing them, being chased and chases sticks/balls but isn't so good at giving them back!)
 
I sometimes wonder if she could be a touch dominant in nature or maybe she's just pushing the boundaries and trying to establish her place in "the pack". The housetraining was and is difficult at times but there is no longer any mess in the mornings and on occasions, when I get back from work but this is acceptable for now because she is inside most of the day, so she's getting a lot better. She likes going for walks and only pulls for the 1st couple of minutes but then settles into a good pace and trots alongside.
 
It's only been in the last month or so that she's discovered she can bark and it sounds pretty mean for a young dog! she's already learned that the doorbell or a knock means a stranger at the house and she lets them know she's around!
 
She was spayed (and microchipped) on the 26th Feb and my apologies for being slack in sending you the certificate. I will fax it over tomorrow.
 
Please see the attached files for a few of the many pictures taken since she was adopted. she has changed so much!! She destroyed her little bed and has also long since outgrown it anyway but she's happy with her big cushion. So anyway, all in all I think she will be a good, friendly dog and is making a lovely companion.
Kind regards,
Clive

Reba

Reba Image

It's me, Reba.  I went for my rehab consult today.  Boy, were they thorough.  I saw Sandy who is a veterinary doctor who specializes in rehab for animals and some very nice technicians called Carrie and Rhonda who are going to work on me.  Sandy said that my left leg muscles have already started to atrophy so she has put a plan together to get me back on my four legs again.  They are going to focus on pain control first of all so lots of ice after they have worked on me and continue on the Metacam.  I go tomorrow night for my first treatment and then again on Friday evening.  If I need pain medication in order to do the treatment then they will contact my own vet and get a prescription.  Eventually I will be having some cold laser therapy, electrical stimulation of my muscles and I get to try out the underwater treadmill.   The big focus is building up my muscles again and controlling any pain I have.  Wow! Sounds exciting doesn't it.  I was on my best behavior at the rehab place today and everyone loved me. I was very cooperative.  They said it might take 3 to 4 months of rehab with a lot of that being done at home under the rehab vets's direction. Oh, well, I guess I will have to put up with the attention. My new family love me.  I get taken out for 3 short walks a day.  Only 5 minutes at a time.  The vet today said to continue with that and not increase the time until she tells us.  The food is good - I get breakfast and supper.  I have to take some pretty big pills called antibiotics but they should stop soon.  I behave in the house and I own the sitting room.  My mum whistles when she comes in the back door and I know she is home so I run to the door and we go out for a quick 5 minute walk.  I know her whistle anywhere now.  My dad always gives me a pet when he passes me.  I went in to visit him, Denise and Graham at their work today and everyone loved me.  They gave me a bowl of water because I was panting. I drank two bowls.  Well, I had better go now.  I will keep in touch and tell you how the rehab is going.  I am doing well in my new home so don't worry about me.  I miss you both but life is good just now despite all the ups and downs.  I think my mum and dad are going to take out my staples tonight.  I am not looking forward to that but I know it has to be done.
