Tabitha (now Nalla)

Tabitha (now Nalla) Image Nalla is doing GREAT, she is so smart it isn’t even funny.  She is now in puppy classes at PetSmart and we were told last class that "maybe she is too advanced for this class" HA HA HA.  She knows how to sit, down, wait, leave it, shake a paw, and "out of the kitchen" (see attached videos) and is great on the leash.  She is 100% house trained and has even spent the past week in my bed at night with no problems....other then keeping me awake with her on the bed off the bed on the bed shenanigans.  She loves the cats and loves beating up on her sister (Noodle the Dauschund).  She is booked in for her spay on the 29th and I am very worried about how I am going to keep her quite after the surgery because she is always on the go.
I cant thank you guys enough for letting me have this little girl (well not so little she is 30lbs and is only five months old today).  She is such a wonderful dog and keeps me on my toes all the time, she makes me laugh when I am feeling down and gives me so much love!!

Hi Mary, We are doing GREAT! Rio (Scooter) is a loving and loved part of our family. We have a neuter appointment on Thursday so I will send those forms in ASAP. He is very smart and is teaching us about being dog parents and making us laugh every day. We feel very blessed to have him.

Thanks for the e mail and knowing that your jobs with NASAP don't stop at the adoption level. We are thrilled with Samantha NOW Dakota. She is a great dog and very well behaved.

She has been a great addition to our family and we lover her with all our hearts. Thanks so much for allowing us to have her in our home.Thanks again,

Link (formerly Azreal)

Hello NASAP,
My name is Rochelle Bos. About three years ago I adopted a young kitten, at the time his name was Azrael. As it was my first time living on my own I was looking for an adult cat, but when I was looking in the window at the local Petsmart I saw this little devil. The lady who was working that day warned me he would be a hand full and I should probably look at different cat. But stubborn as I am I was in love with this terror, all claws and teeth. The lady told me that he was surrendered by a man who bought Azrael for his wife, the young kitten turned out to be a "curtain climber". I was not worried about it though, I had no curtains. After taking him home I had decided I would like to pick a different name for this spunky little guy, for close to two months I called him "kitten". I then chose the name Link after the Legend of Zelda game's main character. I spent a lot of time with him, and now he is the sweetest cat I know. Friends who dont like cats love this boy. He doesn't bite unless you're wrestling with him, even when my nephew carries him around by the armpits he doesn't fuss. Even my vet claims he is very gentle, when she was trying to give him his de-wormer he pushed her away with just his paws (no claws). I can hold him in the shower and he wont scratch me to get away or even make a sound, even though he hates the water. Every day when I come home, even if I was gone for 10 minutes Link will run to the door all purrs and happy meows. Link will come when called as well as follow me around all day. It may sound like he has done a total 180 since he was a kitten but he still loves to tear around the house and chase shadows. His favorite toy is still a stuffed penguin I won at a carnival the summer I adopted him. His favorite treat is watermelon, every time he smells it he comes running saying "Where's mine Mom?". He loves the dog, fights with our much larger cat all the time. Link has always been on the smaller side. His whiskers are always forwards, his is by far the happiest, most friendly cat I have ever met and I am very glad I was so stubborn. Thank you very much for my boy,
Rochelle Bos

Reuben (now Smokey)

We brought little Smokey home yesterday and have fallen totally in love with him!  He is the sweetest natured little pup and as long as there's a lap available to cuddle on he's happy.  Our other dog Fudge has been very lonely since his lifelong companion Devon passed away in October.  We have not seen Fudge happy and bouncy until last night when he and Smokey came barrelling through the door into the house after playing in the yard.  This is truly a match made in heaven for all of us.  We cannot thank NASAP enough for all the wonderful work they do.  We are so happy to have Smokey as part of our family. 

Hudson (now Hammer)

I hope you guys had a great Christmas!!! I was just browsing on the NASAP
website, and I saw an update from "spud's" family. I was very shocked when I
read the note and saw the picture. Spud looks just like Hammer(except the
colour of course), and some of the characteristics that they had mentioned
sound so much like Hammer.

Hammer update...he is doing great. He is the same old loveable dog, that has
loads of puppy in him! He loves his walks and rides in the vechicles. He
gets along with all dogs, and loves everyone:)
We are expecting in June, so we are trying to get him use to the "baby'
idea. He seems to be okay with other peoples babies, he is just nosey and
likes to give them little licks on their feet.

thank you again for giving us the chance to be part of his life, and for him
to be aprt of ours.

take care
Lyndsay, Jonathan and Hammer

We truly enjoy having Max.   He's a great little guy!


Spud Image

Time has sure flown since we've brought Spud home and we have been thinking of you often and thanking you silently for our special pup.  We can't even imagine what our lives would be like now without him to make us smile every day.  From the moment we brought him home he formed a unique bond with each and every one of us.  Spud loves to be a part of our family and it seems like we could not have found a better match!  He is affectionately called Tank or Weiner, much because he now weighs over 50lbs and is solid as a rock, but has the long body and short little legs like a Weiner dog.  Spud is very smart (we are a little biased of course), very happy and social and loves going for his daily walks and his fun times at the Terwillegar Dog Park.   We were so lucky to have met the family who adopted Shiloh (Spud's sister) and it seemed like they truly remembered each other.  It is like there are no other dogs around them as they run and play together at the park.  Shiloh loyally protects her brother, and gets feisty when other dogs try to interrupt their play time.  We'd love to get the whole litter together, including Missy, to have a reunion of sorts!  Maybe this email will help us contact the other Moms and Dads!   Spud's only downfall is making holes in his stuffy animals and pulling out every last bit of stuffing, much to his Dad's dismay!  He loves to squeak his rubber ball and howl endlessly like a wolf pup.  Hilarious.   He loves going to our farm and had a blast camping with us this summer at Big Horn Dam.  Who knew quads and dirtbikes could be so much fun for a dog!  These pictures are some of Spud waiting patiently for his "wolf pack" to return from their trek.  Thanks Angela for helping us meet Spud.  We have not regretted it for a moment I really believe that the dog somehow chooses the family and we are so happy that he chose US! Sincerely,Brad, Terri, Colton & Connor Halwa
