Monty

Monty Image

Everything is great with Monty - my only annoyance, sometimes, is that he is too much of a momma's boy at home - can't go anywhere without him on my heels.  However, that said, I'm sure it is an advantage at the off-leash park we go to every day.  I am able to have him off leash right from the parking lot and we stroll (correct that - I stroll) for at least an hour if it's daytime, usually 1 1/2to 2 hours if in the evening.  He has TONS of energy - my 2 friends, one of whom you met, get a real kick out of him - he doesn't walk ANYWHERE, runs ahead then back to us, and goes off on short explorations for a few minutes then ripping back to catch up with us.  He was lightly harassed by a non-aggressive but rough Catahoula (bigger than him) a few weeks ago and has really become nicely cautious approaching new dogs out on the path or in the park.  He absolutely adores his squeaky alien-ball, as I call it.  It's my rescue toy to get him back when he starts to wander off a little too far or too long, and he plays well with all the other social dogs in the play field.  The odd time he'll get a little 'herdy' but less and less as the weeks go along and settles well when I pull him away for a walk before heading back to the group.  I wish I could have a dollar for every comment I get on his unusual coloring - I could go on a vacation!  We've come across a couple brindle boxers but that's it.
  Here at home, he's been excellent (being my shadow aside....)  He did start after one of the cats the other day when she ran up the stairs, but she quickly put him in his place!  She actually 'hunted' him down for a few minutes and we had to shoo her off when he had come to sit up on the couch with my daughter and I and she was still coming after him!  The other cat still isn't walking around freely but is getting better at coming out and down to the kitchen as long as he stays on the couch in the other room beside it - as soon as she hears his nails hit the floor, she's gone back into hiding. He hasn't picked up one item around the house that he shouldn't and will try to beg a treat when we are eating but goes away quietly and quickly when we say no.  He was stealing the cats' food but i put up an easy barricade and he respects it well.  He is protective of our yard - had his hair straight up and barking fiercely at the neighbour when he was putting his garbage out in the yard next to our fence line, but I'm sure he'll be fine once we get to properly introduce him.  Everyone coming to the house loves him, as do we.  Thank you so much for looking after him and for being interested enough to follow up and see how he's doing.  If you come our way, St, Albert, please email or call and we'd be happy to take a stroll with you!

Hi there,
 
I am replying for Ryan about Lucien that we adopted at the end of summer. He is doing very well! He has tons of fun when we walk him and take him for runs in the River Valley with my parents 14 month old lab... they are definatly best friends. We also adpoted a cat and Lucien and him although they had their differences are become close friends sleeping together on the same bed and playing hide and seek. He has brought Ryan and I so many good times with lots of laughes and kisses!
 

Phoenix

Mary,

I received your letter about my cat Phoenix whom I adopted in August.   I do hope you received my phone message way back in November or December.   Phoenix is doing fine with us.  She is the most wonderful, tolerant cat I have ever had.  We have two grandchildren living with us and she is just great with the kids.  She adapted to our household very quickly and is a real joy to all of us.  Thank you for letting us have such a friendly cat who has become a very important part of our life.

Bella

Bella is doing well in her new home.  She is a willful and dominant little (or big) girl, and its taken a lot of hard work to build up some discipline fundamentals.   But, at the end of the day, she is just a big cuddly mess, and as friendly as can be.  I've attached a picture of her on her big doggy bed getting along smashingly with our cat, Johnny.   Thanks for all of the great work NASAP does.  Glad we could play a part.

Hogan (now Atticus)

Atticus is doing great.  We go to the dog park every day for an hour walk.  He loves the park.  He meets lots of dogs and he likes to go exploring iin the trees.  He has had his first bath and the people said it took them four shampoos to get him clean!  Once a month he goes to daycare and he is on the waiting list for obedience school.  He is an awesome dog.   We go for three walks a day and to the dogpark.  He is a very happy dog.

Zoey

Hi there,

It was funny to have received your letter as my husband and I just finished
saying that we have to email Angela to let her know how Zoey is
doing.  Zoey is doing fantastic, we are very lucky to have her.  She is a
great dog and our kids love her.  She adapted into our home very quickly and
is very very spoiled as she should be.

Thank you again NASAP!

Rocky & Mischief (Pato & Loula)

Rocky & Mischief (Pato & Loula) Image

Pato (Rocky) and Loula (Mischief) are doing great. They are two healthy and very happy cats. I often remember Loula's original name and think she deserved it with no doubts, he he he...Pato is very relaxed and doesn't mind my 2-year-old "torturing" him. Loula runs away on time to avoid that "pleasure". My 5-year-old son, who has autism, is showing his interest in our pets and even tries to pet them which never happened with the older cat we had before. We are more than happy to see that, because we'd like him to learn to be friend with animals so he doesn't miss those great feelings that friendship can bring to his life

Babs (now Casey)

  Hi Mary

Just to let you know, Casey is doing great.  The first days was trying as
she was reluctant to get close.  The next day, I took my other dog for a
walk and when I come back and walked in the door, she was a different dog.

Since then, she loves the walks, gets along with my other dog.  Not sure
which is the alpha dog in the house.

In the evenings, she sleeps in my arm while I which TV.

She is the best dog I have ever had and love her very much.
