I want to
share an incredible experience that I had with my foster failure, Honey
Bun. We had the wonderful opportunity to trick-or-treat with the Skills
for Learning and Living class at our local high school. The fabulous
teachers enlisted the help of some of the neighbors to offer the kids a
chance to trick-or-treat on Halloween morning in the neighborhood.
I just wanted to give you an update on our rescued boy “Remy aka Powell” ( rescued 8/2009). I had him certified this summer through BAK-PAK Critters as a therapy dog and he now goes into schools so children with reading difficulties can read to him. He is currently attending Spillane Middle School in Cypress (near our home) and LOVES it! We go once a week and the same 3-4 kids read to him. Today one of the shyer boys actually sat on the floor with him for the first time instead of sitting in the chair which is progress! And of course Remy loved having him within inches of snuggles.
please enjoy the picture of Remy and our Air Force son, JC, when he was
home. We titled that picture “His Hero”.
I just wanted to update
your orgnization on Nala who we adopted last year. She is doing very
well: healthy, loved and happy. Her sister, Tigger and she are
inseparable. Nala and Tigger both endure the cats who like to clean
their eyes and ears, and occasionally like to curl up and sleep with
them. Although Nala has a seizure disorder and was seizing 1x every 2
weeks, a slight change in her meds reduced that number to 0. She has
become more focused, energetic and coordinated since the seizures have
stopped. She is a bright golden ray in our lives. Thank you.
Slam is doing great! He
went to a friend’s lake house with us last weekend and he LOVED chasing
the ball around the yard and into the lake. He had 2 shots for his
heartworm on Monday. When we picked him up on Tuesday night and he was
sluggish and just wanted to sleep. He started perking up on Wednesday
and he is back to himself by now. He loves to chomp on tennis balls! He
keeps on bringing us his ball but I'm trying to reason with him that we
can't throw the ball right after his treatment! He's being patient.
Here is a picture of
Hemi that I took today! It has been almost a year since we brought our
baby home! She is so loved by not only us but everyone that meets her!
Thank you for allowing her to come into our hearts and our home!
to update you on my sweet Fletcher, who I adopted back in February 2012.
He is doing fabulous in his new home. He went through his heartworm
treatment without any ill effects and is strong and happy.
Holly loves to swing!
She thinks she is one of the kids!! We love her
Lili has mastered the
stairs!!!! Days ago, she let me know that she could do them BY HERSELF
and would not let me help ANY MORE! She's eating well, sleeping well,
and covers almost ONE WHOLE MILE each day in exploration! We walk
mid-morning, afternoon and evening which helps with her arthritis. What
a bed-hog though!!!! Still working some on that one. Ha!
adjusted well to his new home with two kids and two cats. He is truly
one of the family and makes sure he is included in all we do. Don't even
think about going to the bus stop without him! He has boundless energy,
loves his bones, his antler and his Chuck-it. He is doing well with the
cats, except when they want to share his warm bed. Then he has to think
about it. He is very patient. We just went through obedience training
and he received his certificate and much praise. He is a growing boy, up
to 72 lbs and has grown 4 inches! Yes, it's true!
