Etni (formerly Darwin) Image

I apologize for being so long since I last let you know how Etni is doing.  It's been a little crazy at work due to the lovely white stuff we have been getting! lol  But everything is going absolutely great.  He is such a happy go lucky kind of dog!! He is getting better and better behaved and a lot more mature.  He makes very few messes in the house and now he always tricks me.  He acts like he has to go to the bathroom outside and I let him out and its just to eat snow!!! lol.  He is such a great dog and I have a few updated pictures of him.  I dont mind if you go ahead and put pictures and a story up on Happy Tails! I will try and keep you posted on how he is doing and get you pictures regularly!  Take Care :)

Mona Lisa (now Molly)

Mona Lisa (now Molly) Image

Dear Jenny, Pat, and Murray:

Thought you might like an update on "Mona Lisa" - now "Molly": She's in great health, recovered beautifully from her spay, aher her affection and playfulness adds so much to our life - although she's so smart she keeps us busy!

She amuses herself with a fuzzy ball for hours, always bringing in into the kitchen as it "skitters" better on the floor -  and she will automatically drop it for me to throw again.

She loves "housework" - barreling around the place as we perform our chores, then settling down on her cat tree in a sunny window to watch kitty TV - 2 bird feeders which also attract the odd squirrel and some outdoor cats (sad to say, some cold, wet and hungry ones!). 

She has several places to scratch, and keeps so busy with her toys (after supper is an hour or two of leaping, summersaulting, pouncing, - her "killer kitty" phase) -  that she hasn't had time to be bored or destructive.

She is completely trusting; confident - one happy cat! To think if what could have happened to such a wonderful animal had it not been for such caring people!

Thanks again to all,

Miss Molly, Karyn & Ron Wight

*NASAP sincerely thanks Karyn for the beautiful handmade "cat lover" quilt that she made and donated to NASAP's recent silent auction fundraiser!*


Chopper Image

Here is Chopper with his owner, Mya.    Mya and her Mom brought Chopper by the NASAP office for a visit today, and to drop off $75 in donation that Mya has been saving up from her allowance.  So, a very big THANK YOU Mya for that!      A big thank you also to Leslie, for sticking with Chopper through some initial behavioural issues.   With help and advice from Maggie at Capable Canines, Chopper is now a much easier dog to live with.     His separation anxiety is under control and his leash aggression is much diminished.     He was the sweetest guy when he came by today.   Definitely on his best behaviour and getting along just fine with everyone.     He knows when he's onto a good thing!    Chopper is a very lucky little dog.


Brodie Image

I apologize for taking so long for getting back to you, but everything is fine.  Brodie has adjusted quite nicely to our household, and I have to admit we are all very attached to him, including our Golden Retreiver Cleo.  They are best friends and we enjoy watching them play and perform for us. Brodie sleeps with our eleven year old son, Evan and sometimes sleeps with me during the day, as I work nights. He is a very curious and energetic little dog, and we try to give him and Cleo as much exercise as possible.  Over all we are very happy with our new addition to the family and were happy to give him a good home. I have attached some pictures so you can see how he has adjusted. Any questions, don't hesitate to call or email us. Take care.



Cleo Image

All is well with Cleo. We all love her - she gets many hugs each day from us/our kids. She dressed up as a soccer player for Halloween... kids just loved that! We figured out - for the most part - things that trigger her nervous peeing and it has curbed. We don't leave her alone for long - but when we have to she seems to like to go into a crate. See photos attached...

All in all things are good and we are happy to have her as a part of our family!

Oh yeah, one more thing you may get a smile out of...  as you may remember Cleo is amazing at catching a ball.  So, each day I'll take her with me to pick up our son from gr. 1 and because she's so fast/agile - I'll always have a crowd of kiddies around me begging to throw the ball for Cleo.  Cleo loves it, the kids love it.  I really should start charging a fee...LOL! Audri ;)


Hope Image

Hope came into the NASAP office to see me last Saturday and it was so good to see her looking so well and so happy and so much a part of her new family.      I fostered Hope when she was in foster care and she came to NASAP in a sorry state having been taken into the Emergency Clinic emaciated and covered in sores from mange.   She went from bald to patchy and now has a wonderful coat.   Her new family say she is the best dog they have ever owned.   


Benji Image

Benji is doing very well. He is nothing but a joy from the very beginning. He get along with Maggie, our Cocker Spaniel, and has accepted her as his sister right away. He enjoys the time in the off-leash park, running around with Maggie and chasing her and other dogs, no matter how big or small they are. He never leaves my site and as soon as I sit down he is making himself comfortable on my lab. We all have a lot fun together and are very happy that we have fund each other.In September we went for vacation on a farm close to Waterton Park where the dogs could enjoy the country freedom. Back home business as usual; playing, napping, eating, playing again and of course going to the off-leash park. All in one we are a very happy family.Thank you for letting us have him. We could not imagine life without him anymore.Many thanks to all of you.Best wishesMargarete & Andreas & Maggie & Benji 


Jasper Image

Dear Tessa and NASAP,I just wanted to tell you that I am alive and well, and living with my family, Glen and Brenda Kane, in St. Albert still.  It has been a whole year since they adopted me.  And it has been a lot of hard work learning to live in the city and be "civilized".  I still love to run and play with every dog I see, but my parents take me to a Puppy Day Care nearby twice a week, and the dog park to play.  Plus I have promised not to chew up too many things if they walk me twice a day at least.  I have gained 10 pounds and don't look so thin anymore.  But I still have a nervous stomach, and the vet says I might always have that.  I am told that I am very intelligent and have learned lots of tricks -- in fact I will do anything for a cookie. I went to the cabin many times this summer and only got into trouble because I escaped once in a while when I got bored, and went down the road to visit.  I just can't resist the sound of people talking or dogs barking -- I have to go and see what is happening, even if it means going out in the lake to get out of our fenced yard.  As you can see from the pictures I am sending, I love camping with my parents and was really good when we went to BC for a week.Aside from that, I like to visit with all my parents' family and always say hello to the cat who lives here.  I am really very friendly and loving, which is probably why my parents decided to keep me even though they say I am a nuisance sometimes.I hope you are well and still taking care of lost animals.  It is a very important job.Thank you for rescuing me and finding me a new home. Love,Jasper Kane
