• Veto


    We love Veto because he's a wiggle-butt.  That's not the only reason, mind you, but it's a big part of it.  We also love him because he's absolutely ridiculous.  He likes to pick up a random object, like sunglasses or a cat dish, and walk around with it in his mouth, trying to get us to notice.  Once we do, his game is on.  Nothing is off limits--he'll even march around with a dustpan in his mouth.
    Veto has a paper towel fetish, too--he'll pluck a roll off the counter and happily sit and chew it.  He's happy making messes.  He also likes to bark at us at feeding time.  I'm not sure if he's telling us to hurry up, or what, but he merrily goose-steps around the kitchen making noise.  However, once he knows it's coming, he rushes to his designated spot and waits quietly for dinner.
    The main reason we love him, though, is that aside from being very cute and more than a little odd, he is a deeply loving, loyal and devoted little dog.  He's happiest when he's with us (especially when we give him a stuffed Kong), and frankly, I'm happiest when I'm with him.  And I know he's happy, because his whole butt wiggles.


  • Hughie

    Hughie.jpgHughie!! Is our new rescue pup, we nick name him fumbly-bumbly because he's so clumsy, falling around and still learning to use his feet, one of the reasons we love him is because every time he falls he just gets right back up and keeps going!!


  • Simba


    Hi my name is Brolin. I'm 11 years old. I have a hart dog named Simba. He is so sweet and he's like my old dog April who passed away this summer because he is cuddly, soft, obedient and an awesome dog. Simba is also very playful whenever I have a sock in my hand or on the floor I'll throw it for him and he'll either zoom to go get it. When I tell him to drop he'll drop the sock immediately. I love him so much and he loves me too. For example every night he will sleep at the foot of my bed and wait until the alarm goes off to give me all his kisses. Then I will cuddle with him for ten minutes and if anyone's asking that's why I am always late for school every morning. Ever since I got Simba he's changed my heart in many ways and that's why I love him so much and I will never stop loving him even after he has passed away.

  • Symbol


    I love Symbol because everyday she lets me know I am important to her whether it be for a walk or to give her dinner.  She gives me kisses good morning and good night. No matter how long I am gone she is always happy to welcome me back home. I love her for so many reasons but the main reason is because she loves me. 


  • Maui


    Things have been going very well, her name is now Ellie and she is adjusting very well to our family. We love having a dog again! For the first few days after we adopted her she was quite submissive and quiet but she has become more of a dog now, she plays with us, barks, chews her toys and sleeps in her bed (she has even chewed some of our shoes). Her favorite things to do are to look out the front window, chew her antler and be petted. We call her Princess too because she is very spoiled and wants to be petted all of the time, if you stop petting her she puts her paw on you to remind you to keep petting her! We had one appointment with the behaviorist and he was very helpful in helping us to deal with Ellie's submissiveness. She still is shy when meeting new people but we just tell people that Ellie will come to you when she feels comfortable and she eventually does because she gets curious. We feel so fortunate that Ellie has become part of our family, thank you so much for rescuing her!


  • Boban

    boban.jpgWe are excited to report that we have grown so much with Boban over the last two years. Where first he was shy and quiet with us, and not at all naughty, we are now privileged to have experienced all sides of our sweet Bo. We've learned that apparently he likes burritos and oatmeal-and also that he loves us so much that sometimes he howls when he's left alone. We've learned that he likes to give a paw and give nose-kisses. We've learned that he wants little more in life than to chew sticks and have his belly rubbed, but also that he loves to run endlessly, especially in the snow. Lately he's found his voice, rrr-ing so very politely when he wants to be invited onto the bed. He has even made some excellent friends that he loves to play with, puppy-style, at the dog park. You would have no idea that he's in his retirement. And indeed he is, in a hard-earned retirement. So when the rest of the time (probably 90%) that Boban lies around sleeping, we're so content to see him peaceful-when he's not dreaming, that is. We love you, Bo!


  • Sheldon


    When we first became foster parents for Sheldon it was a little rough as he had Parvo and was really sick as you know.  But then he beat Parvo and we loved him so much we decided to adopt him!  He has fit in so well with his new family which includes my husband and I, 2 doggies siblings and our 5 month old girl!  So he is in a busy household and he loves it!  He loves going for off leash walks, deep snow and swimming as of this summer!


  • Nala


    Nala is doing really well. She initially had some socialization issues with other dogs (really high energy that could come across as aggression,) but she has now improved to the point that we can take her to off leash parks. She loves to go for runs with me, and after a few false starts she has now mastered running up and down the river valley stairs (I think the open bottom of the stairs scared her at first.) Her and Dan bike ride together in the summers, and we've even taken her mountain biking in Jasper a couple of times now. We tried camping with her this summer for the first time, and she loved it (so many squirrels) so we took her along with us for the rest of our summer camping trips. We absolutely love her cuddliness; she will hop on top of both at once of us on the couch looking for pats and scratches.
