We wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family a
Sica is well and happy and there still isn’t a day that
goes by that we’re not so grateful for having her in our
family. Loving and taking care of her is a privilege.

Cammie came to us with a broken hip and
femoral head. We tried to save the
leg with a FHO (femoral head removal)
but were not able to save it. She is an amazing three legged
girl who isn't bothered by her handicap at all. Now she in a
great home with two pommie sisters.
through FHO surgery (removal of the
femoral head). In her new home she is going to be working with
the Oregon University Vet Rehab Center to get the best physical
therapy there is to offer. She will be amazing in her new
found a new jogging buddy. This will be so great for his
higher energy personality.
a year and three months with us Sammie finally found her forever
home. This home will allow her to engage at her own speed.
She will be very much loved and never have to see a shelter or
halfway house (like me) again.

still a ways to go and we are protecting

new owner took a leap of faith in adopting her. She had some
mamary masses removed and we did not have the results at that time.
She was "all in" and it didn't matter a bit to her what the biopsy
results were. This was the sweet response I received from her
new owner after we were thrilled to communicate her biopsy results
"Thank you so much Christy!! That is absolutely AMAZING news!! :)
I'm so so happy!!!
Jasmine (we've starting calling her Moxie :) ) is such an amazing
pup, she came home and immediately fit exactly in like she'd always
been there. Sarah was exactly right about the pee pads and her
already understanding routines like bedtime -- she's so so smart,
and it's clear that someone before us really loved her and taught
her very well.
When we got home for the first time she came in, met our cat Elvis
(was unimpressed in a fantastic way) and then took herself on a
three-lap tour of every room and nook/cranny of the house! Then she
picked out my nightstand as her preferred chill spot and settled
right in for a nap. Later that night we took her for a walk, she did
awesome -- she's a ROCKET! -- she's full of energy and happily set a
quick pace that we giggled as we tried to keep up with!
The next morning she woke up and did another multi-lap tour of the
house, peed on the pad and then jumped up onto my bed and settled in
until I got out of bed. I think she was checking to see if
everything was how she remembered from the night before :) Since
then she's become super chill, she's awesome with Elvis and when I'm
paying attention to Elvis (and not her) -- except for when I come
home from work and she's been alone for a bit -- then it's jumping
and excited almost-barking for a few minutes. She's shown us that
she must have been trained to travel in purses or bags -- anytime we
unzip one she hops in!! She also looks out the window for us (you
can see her from the driveway) when we leave and come home and then
runs to meet us at the front door, it's absolutely the most adorable
thing I've ever seen. She's been amazing at listening/heeding when
we say things (like come back out of that yard it's not ours or
don't leave the deck) -- she completely understands (and only
sometimes tries to push her limits lol). She also understands when
we need to pay attention to other things and when we hope for
snuggles and always comes when we call her.
Thank you again so much for everything you've done for her and for
us; getting up in the morning and coming home at night is so much
better with her there to greet me -- I already can't imagine life
without her, she's almost incomprehensibly perfect for us :)
Much appreciated! --Melinda
-Lambikins -n- Prudence-
with us in much pain from a degenerative issues with a disk in his
back. Within a few days he has lost function of his rear legs.
Neurologist reported a disk that had granular zed causing the
paralysis. When consulting with a neurologist poor prognosis of
regaining function and high pain estimations of a surgery eliminated
that as an option. He is not in pain and loves life. His
wheels were donated from Gunners Wheels and he absolutely LOVES
them. He gets so excited to get into them in the mornings.
He is now in a wonderful home where he will be so much loved.
When Rosie arrived she was in horrible condition. Super skinny
and with horrible skin infections.
The pictures below are from when we picked her up from transport.
Above are when she was in good health before leaving us.
Ariel is a
sweet senior diabetic dog. It takes a huge heart to take in
and love her to the end.
Rosie is now
making a loving and kind woman very happy.

monitoring is necessary for his future. We are thrilled that
he is now in an amazing home.
