Postcard from Gypsi, now named Lexi

Lexi LOVES playing fetch with the kids!!! She is also learning to heel really well when I walk her. I walked her at the park today and she stayed beside me the entire time! :) We love her!!

Her name is Sweetie, and you guessed it. She's so sweeeeeeet

This precious mommy dog was found wondering the streets. After an endless amount of time to find her owner with no luck, we must now try and find her a forever home. She is approximately one to two years old. Seems to have been a inside dog at one point, crate trained and willing to learn manners. She is slightly food aggressive but this is probably from having to fend for herself on the streets and this behavior can possibly be corrective with some work. She gets along with other dogs, and children (not sure with cats. Please call us if you would like more information on Sweetie (aka mommy dog) or if you would like to meet her. Sweetie (aka mommy is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.

family updates

Just wanted to give you an update on Jessie. She is the sister of Chip & Dale. We brought her home last Decemeber.

We changed Jessie's name to Sydney. She quickly fit in with the rest of our dogs. She is the 4th adopted dog in our herd of six. She has become best friends with our smallest dog, Finnegan. Finnegan is a red wire hair dachshund we adopted almost a year ago.

Sydney is enjoying life. She comes to work with me everyday. While she enjoys her own bed and space, she can be found most nights on my daughter's queen size bed. Sydney is a quick learner. By the end of December she was sitting on command and by the middle of January she was shaking on command. She was also quick to grasp the concept of fetch. At a very young age, she proved to be a good leaper. So keeping her confined with 'baby gates' was only an option for a short period of time. While she can be a bit skittish around sudden loud noises, she is very obedient and loyal. Knock on wood, she has not yet chewed on anything but dog toys, rawhide, sticks and rocks. And NO, she is not at all spoiled (sarcasm heavily implied)!

I have attached two photographs. One is from the night we met her and the other shows her at approx 4 months of age.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to provide a forever home for this amazing animal. Thanks for all you do.
