A Dog Named Howdy

I have always wanted a dog named Howdy. Actually, I have always wanted a dog named, Violet, but second to Violet, I have always loved the idea of a dog named Howdy.  Enter a 2+ year-old charcoal gray labradoodle named, Fred.  Well after a few weeks of saying “Howdy Fred” every time I came into the house and every time he went for a walk or fetched a bone or sat for his dinner or was launched, unceremoniously, off of the bed at night…I now have a dog named Howdy. Hooray!

Please pray for Benji - SUNDAY UPDATE

Yesterday, my Grandma's 5 year old bichon poodle mix was enjoying a walk through the neighborhood with a friend when he was attacked by four pit bulls.  Benji was taken to a nearby vet and underwent three hours of surgery.  The neighbor who was walking him spent the afternoon in emergency getting stitched up.  We moved Benji to the emergency and critical care hospital for the night and was able to get some sleep with the help of morphine and a wonderful vet and vet tech.  Benji was my…

Miss Vivi finds a "Home"

So, what was it, Friday night that Vivi arrived? I was expecting a couple weeks of shyness and trying to draw her out of her shell. Here it is only Tuesday and Miss Vivi has exploded out of her shell!

She and Dylan are fast friends already. The wrestling matches over toys starts at the crack of dawn, with the two of them running through the house, side by side, with one half of a toy in each of their mouths, each one trying to gain the advantage. When she gets tired of wrestling with…

Miss Vivi arrives!

Not much of a "blogger" so bear with me.


We sat in the Family room Friday evening, on pins and needles, waiting for the call that Jeanine was on her way with Vivi.

No call came and I was in the process of softening the blow for Jane and telling her that "sometimes the Fosters just can't let them go.." when the front doorbell rang.

There they were, Jeanine and Vivi! What a beautiful girl she is...and I melted when she gave me a little kiss. Halfway through the…

Meet Carly, our shepardoodle foster...

We had the pleasure of meeting Carly yesterday and now it is time for her to make her world debut!  Carly is a ten month old shepardoodle - that's a white german shepherd and poodle mix - and what a cute mix it is.  Carly made the five hour trip to our house like a real champ, she laid in the back and didn't make a sound even though I'm sure she was unsure of what was going on.  She met up with our "golden boys" on a walk and again took it all in stride.  Her puppy energy comes through when…

Ernie Update

It feels like Ernie has been with us forever now. He is so sweet and tries so hard to please us. We have seen him grow and try new things. If we all don't get up at the same time he will roam the house to make sure we are all there. He is totally house trained, no mistakes. He gets along with everyone but is especially close to Priscilla our goldendoodle. Everyone just falls in love wih him. When friends visit they have to take time to tell him how special he is and how much they have heard…

Cash will soon go home!

This is probably the final Cash blog I’ll do. He’ll be leaving for his forever home in a couple of weeks. We have loved being part of this guy’s life for the past few months, and he is now part of our forever memories. He’s managed to snuggle his way into our hearts.

I think the first dog you foster is probably the hardest because you aren’t prepared for the mixed emotions as they leave your care and move on. You watch them bloom from the fearful, confused rescue animal to a…
