Niblick

Niblick Image

Hi Delaine,
Just thought I would let you know how things are going.
You would think he knew that the adoption papers were signed. The next night, for the first time, he took a bite out of one of the corners of the bedroom walls. Luckily he doesn't take very big bites. He also started running around Brad's legs like he was possessed. Obviously celebrating. We all had a good laugh. He still does it every once in a while if you stand still too long. He attacks the broom and growls at it if I try to sweep up after him: very amusing. My niece thought it was the most amazing thing having a real live Easter Bunny on Easter morning. He likes to run round our bedroom at 3:00 in the morning. If you close him out of the room he scratches at the door to get let back in.
Niblick has claimed every room upstairs as his own. When he wants to be alone he crawls under our bed. Of course half the time Mitchell crawls under there with him. He seems to be loving all the attention. He actually runs at us if we stop patting him and he wasn't done yet.
We just love having him around. As pets go he's very well behaved and except for the 3 AM hoe downs he's very quiet.
He's settled in very nicely and is considered part of the family.
Bye for now,
Alison

Mitsy (Now Tanzi)

Mitsy (Now Tanzi) Image

Hello
We adopted Mitsy on June 27, 2007, she is now known as Tanzi.  We lost our Border Collie Jozey on June 15.  She was 14 on June 13 and we had to put her down on June 15 due to illness. 
The vet is still not sure how old Tanzi is or quite what breed she is, but says she is under 4 months old, we are now waiting for her to lose her baby teeth then the vet will have a better idea of how old she is approximately.   She will be spayed towards the end of Sept beginning Oct.  
She now lives in a side by side duplex with a fair size garden.  
She has settled down nicely, everyone that sees her says she is a lovely little dog.   She does not bark much, loves playing in the water. We have bought her a flat plastic storage box and she plays in the water for ages.    She loves to cuddle too.  
She loves playing with Eddie [Jack Russell] he belongs to our daughter that lives in the other duplex next door.  
She loves going for walks and is very good when she goes for a ride in the car.    She gets excited when she sees her leash and harness.  
She loves standing at the front screen door and watches everyone that pass by in the street.   She gets excited when she sees other dogs going for walks with their owners.    She has made friends with Miss Sophie from down the road a little white Scottish Terrier and George from across the road he is a Chihuahua
She eats very well and loves her treats.  She is also doing very well with toilet training, although she has had about 4 "accidents" in the past 3 weeks we think she is doing a great job.  
Tanzi also loves to watch the planes that fly over our house, we are not too far from the City Airport so she sees them often.   When she hears a plane she looks up into the sky and follows it until it disappears behind the neighbours house.   She also occasionally watches TV if she is not too busy playing.  
We are very fortunate to get such a lovely puppy.   
Keep well and keep up the good work

"This is Major, the german shepherd formally known as "Lucky",  who we were fortunate enough to adopt from NASAP last September.     He is now 14 months old and doing very well.     He is a very good boy and loves his new brother, Gus the boston terrier, who is six months old.   They are firm friends.       Keep up the good work, NASAP!"

Meeka

Meeka Image

Meeka and I have been together now about 4 months and in the past few weeks she's really begun to settle and become tons more affectionate.  I get happy sneezes when I come home and she brings me her stuffed monkey.  She's a good dog and like all German Shepherds she's  tries super hard to please.  She's always at the ready to do something. She loves going for cars rides , especially to see her "cousin" Moggi the pug who lives with my parents.  She and him spent a week together with my Dad while my Mom and I went on a holiday.  She loved every minute of their time together.  She really enjoys her new diet as she gets all homecooked food  - her favourite seems to be salmon. Her health is stable and her hips are holding out quite well for a ten year old shepherd.  She recently got an enamel and rhinestone butterfly collar pendant which she wears proudly.  It's significant because I've called her my "Butterfly" since the day we met - due to her funny ear and the fact that she has gracefully adapted and changed to all the different life situations she's had to face. I'm so pleased to share my home with this exceptional dog.

CUTTER

CUTTER Image

Well, I was looking at the Happy Tails page and I thought I better add myself! My name is Cutter and I am now living the life!! I had a rough start when I first came into NASAP, my teeth were really bad and I had a massive infection on my nose but Dr. Hee at Wild Rose in Fort Saskatchewan cleaned me up, did some snipping you know where and I was on my way to better health. I was able to work my magic (very goofy and cuddly) with my foster family that ended up not being able to part with me! I now get to hang out forever with my heeler brother, my border collie sister and my favorite, my Rotti sister. We go gopher exploring all the time. I go for daily quad rides, horseback rides and my most favorite……truck rides! My mom said she can’t get over how goofy I am, my rough tough look does not reflect my personality at all! So if you happen to see me in your travels (I am always sneaking into the truck), come say hello and if you happen to have any kind of food, not picky at all, I will add you to my favorites list!

Cyclone (formerly Maisie)

Cyclone (formerly Maisie) Image

Hello,
My name is Cyclone.  When I was with my NASAP foster home I was called Maisie because of the big M on my forehead.  I've been told that my siblings and I were found in a dumpster when we were just a few days old.  A mother cat in foster care adopted and weaned us (Thanks Mom!). I also want to thank Jody and Anette (foster parents) for looking after me until my forever Mom came for me.  I got renamed Cyclone because I had a bad habit of spreading newspapers all over the house while my people were at work. Mom came home one day and said "Looks like a cyclone went through the house!"  I'm the boss of the house now and I keep my new brother Taz in line.
Happy in My Forever Home, Cyclone
Dear NASAP,
Cyclone has been a part of our household for over 3 years now.  When I brought her home she fit in right away, never made strange at all.  I could not even begin to imagine not having my pretty girl in my life.  She has a funny way of greeting people, she likes to sniff their eyes and everyday when I come home from work I have to bend over so she can sniff and cuddle.  Thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity to have such a wonderful furkid in my life.Cindy

Phoebe

Hi! I'm Phoebe!

And this is my happy tale:

I was adopted almost four weeks ago by my Mom and Dad. At first I hated them
and I wanted to bite them. I lived in the foot of a goalie pad in the
storage cupboard. I was not going to come out no matter what those people
said. And they have this evil-little-furry-cat-like-thing that they
call...Grimmace...

But then I decided that Mom wasn't so bad. She fed me and gave me lots of
treats when everyone else wasn't looking. I finally decided to give in and
let her pet me for exactly 7 seconds before I bit her. But because she was
persistent enough, and kept telling me I was pretty.. So she was okay, and I
would let her pet me and come out to see her. I was even nice enough to help
her do her hair in the morning. She also needed help pushing her eyeliner
pencil into her eyeball, I was happy to help with that too.

I decided it was time that I moved. I decided I could live under the
dresser. Mom was nice enough to put some food and water under the dresser
for me too. Then I didn't have to come out to see my evil new step-brother.
Grimmace. I didn't like him very much, and I still don't to this day! I
loved being under the dresser, I could bite Dad's toes and swat and yell as
loud as I could at 4 in the morning whenever Dad tried to get clothes out of
the dresser. After a few days of this, he couldn't get within three feet of
the dresser or I would come flying out. But this got boring, so I decided I
would move again.

I moved to the soup can cupboard. Here was fun as well, Mom could come in
and pet me, but I could scream and bite Dad whenever he wanted to get some
food! And every time Grimmace poked his little head in my cupboard, I darn
near took it off. Ah, good times, good times.

Today I am happy and I can roam around the apartment with confidence. My Mom
and Dad thought it would never happen, but I surprised them! Another big
surprise was that I now have daily snuggle time with Dad while Mom isn't
around, or when she isn't looking (or so you think, I have pictures,
Phoebe!). Mom and I spend a lot of time together because she is home all the
time, so I have made the closest bond with her. But I still love my Dad! I
like it when Mom carries me around and throws mousey toys into the bath tub
while she is doing her hair; I like to chase them around in there. The only
bad thing is that it distracts me from helping her with her eyeliner! I
don't want her to keep doing it wrong. It is supposed to poke you in the
eye, not go outside of it. How many more times do I need to push her
elbow???!? I love to give big hugs (to everyone except Grimmace) and I say
hello whenever anyone looks at me. I'm eating some new food now and I am
starting to lose some of my weight, I am very proud of myself.

I just wanted to say hello to everyone at NASAP and to Sherry and Dan (and
Rascal)! Thank you for helping me find the perfect forever home!

(And thank you for helping me find my Phoebe!)



-Lots of love!

       Phoebe
(And Jani + Shaun!)

Maguire

Maguire Image

Maguire is doing great!  He had a recent vet checkup and is 100 percent
healthy.  We play with his new cat toys every night before bed - he LOVES
to play (especially with his new toy mice and jingly balls - he has me
well trained now!).  He also loves to climb and curl up on my dresser,
bed, office chair, etc, and is really enjoying the cat tree I bought for
him (gives him a great view of birds and other wildlife).  He is VERY
affectionate and loves to socialize with people when they visit, and he
definitely enjoys being spoiled (he loves belly rubs and rubs behind the
ears, and curling up on the couch, etc).  If you could please thank the
people who allowed him to be put up for adoption and find a new home,
he's adjusted very well and I can promise them that he will always have a
very fun, spoiled, and happy life! :)
