Padraig Toto Lee Moore aka Mr. Handsome

Padraig came into Col. Potter as a sad little fellow who lost both his owners within several weeks of each other. I loved having him as a foster and he played well with my Kiara while Ruthie disdained him.  But Col. Potter kids don't stay sad for long because they always find the most perfect furever homes.  Padraig, now called Toto, lives in North Carolina and has a "Weemie" furbro as well as a Mom who loves him dearly. Just look at this recent photo - be still my heart!

Tess of Mehoopany - First Christmas for a PuppyMill Survivor

Tess seems to have loved her first Christmas in Freedom – not being one to “play” with toys, she sure liked this little guy.

Ramsay the Reindeer!

Just thought I would send you some updated photos of Ramsay.
Happy Holidays,
Bryan, Michelle, and Ramsay

Hecate, now Catey, Thanks Foster Mom

This is from foster Hecate. adopted 1/2010. Another happy ending.
Former Foster Mom Lynn B. in KC, KS

Dear Lynn,
Catey wants us to say Thank You for the blue dog.
She hasn't put it down since she opened it, only to eat.
Catey has been a joyous addition to our house.
She has learned so much in the last two years.
We have taken her on several trips, to the mountains and sea.
Last year we traveled to the sea shore in Oregon and this
year it was to Colorado for a week with family.

We are sending you a picture of her with her new dog.
She has yet to de-stuff any animals but loves to de-squeak them.

All our Thanks and Love,
Anita, Bill and most of all Catey

Hello from Coco's family fka Mudslide

Furever Mom Kristis sent this great update to Mudslide's Foster Mom Chris:

Just wanted to give you an update on Coco with some pictures. We're getting ready to drive home to Kentucky next week. Coco and Peanut are both coming along for the long drive. She really enjoys going home with us. It gives her a chance to get even more attention than she already gets! She loves visiting her grandparents and her fur cousins. Lots of playtime during the holidays for her!

Coco starts basic obedience next month. We have already taught Coco "sit" on our own and it only took her less than a week to learn! I thought it would take longer since she can be a bit stubborn, but she learned very fast. She will even sit without a treat and when our friends tell her to sit. Good to know that we will not necessarily need to use treats to train Coco and that she will do tricks for a nice head rub. This is the complete opposite of Peanut who is VERY food driven. We always say that Coco eats to live while Peanut lives to eat.

We were going to try and train Coco on our own, but she is VERY stubborn when it comes to the command "come". She hears us when we tell her come, but she acts like she can't hear us and doesn't see us and continues to patrol the yard for geckos and frogs. She sees keeping the geckos and frogs away from the house as her job. If she sees one, there is no getting her attention back to you unless you walk over and pick her up. We have had to fish her out of the bushes many many times.

Other than the training issues Coco is doing great! We are sooo happy to have her and couldn't imagine life without her. She is such as sweet dog and has such a funny personality. She can bark/howl in all sorts of ranges. It's funny to hear the noises that come out of her mouth sometimes. We're not sure whether to call the noises she makes a bark or howl or groan. Very funny sounds! It makes us laugh.

Foster Mom Karen M sent this happy match story:

My foster boy, Brooks left a little while ago with his new Mom! Just look at that smile on his face. He is going to be one happily spoiled little boy! He’ll be an only dog and Mom is retired, so he’ll get lots of lovins and undivided attention.

Happy forever, sweet Brooks! Frosty, Opie and I will miss you very much, but we are so very happy that your new Mom found you!

Huge thanks to MM Lisa for finding Brooks a perfect home!
