Waggin’ Tails – Hachi

Hi LoveHandlers!

The day we got Simba we watched the new Richard Gere Movie Hachi.   Simba looks just like the dog. Because he really wasn’t responding to Simba, we changed his name to Hachi. He has adapted to it very well.

He is settling in with our family and loves us….and we him. I was at my wits end with the refusal to poo outside. Here’s the secret. He apparently was pretty used to his freedom and was really unhappy about the leash thing. So we made a compromise. I let him out free at 4 in the morning when the cul d’ sac is all asleep. We are surrounded by woods, so he’s not in danger of cars. Doesn’t go far and comes right home.. He’s happy with that. Does his business and puts up with the leash for the rest of the day. He’s used to it now and nudges me to wake up and let him out. LOL

He is a very mellow, mild little man. Loyal, follows me everywhere. Sleeps next to me by the bed and is starting to play a little bit. He didn’t bark for the longest time, but now, every once in a while he does. Always if someone comes to the door. Like he’s trying to protect us. (smile)

Here is a pic of him with my granddaughter as she was going to a fair. The face painting didn’t scare him at all.  They love each other. It’s so cute. Thanks for checking in with us, so glad we have him and that he is finally getting used to his new life.

Waggin’ Tails – Buckley

Hi LoveHandlers!

We adopted Buckley two years ago when he was about 14 weeks. He’s full grown now at about 30 lbs. Here are a couple pics of Buckley with his brother, Zipper, whom we adopted around the same time. They get along great but have very different personalities. Zipper is very energetic, barks and jumps on visitors, and pulls on his leash on walks. Buckley is a sweetheart, better mannered, and more compliant than Zipper. Zipper has run through the electronic fence several times until we got him the stronger “stubborn dog” collar. Buckley never has, and he has actually helped me find Zipper a couple times. But I love them both. We hope to have the dog park built by next summer…..can’t wait to see how my boys do in an off leash dog park.

Regards to you and to LoveHandlers. Love the newsletters. You folks do a great job.

Waggin’ Tails – Mookie

Hi LoveHandlers!

Thank you so much for letting us know who donated. We gave our wedding guests a choice of four different charities, but most liked your mission the best. I’ve attached some more pictures of Mookie from the past few months. He loves when it hits 85 degrees. He strolls outside and lays in the sun with the biggest smile on his face.

Can you believe our boy turned 10 this month?? He acts to young and full of vigor. He and Bosco have begun a tradition of wrestling right after breakfast. Sometimes they have another go just before bed. They are like rowdy kids who don’t want to sleep.

Mookie has been such a joy to have. I cannot thank you enough for entrusting us with such a warm, loving, devoted friend.

Hi LoveHandlers!

We would like to thank you for considering us in the adoption of beautiful Otis.  He seem very content here, even sleeps “upside-down”.  He has fulfilled our lives as well.  Thank you again, and God bless you for saving all of those precious animals!

HI LoveHandlers!

Here is a photo of two very happy dogs on the beach at Martha’s Vineyard who were adopted from you in 2012.   On the right is Sadie and on the left Seymour.  Both dogs are so very happy and are so very wonderful pets and dogs.  We love them very much.   Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Waggin’ Tails – Tiffer

photo-20140713-134306-1-1IMG_7209     Hi LoveHandlers!

Today is the six month anniversary of our lovely Tiffer coming home!! It was the middle of winter on a snowy day when we picked her up from the van, and now it’s the middle of summer. We can’t believe how quickly the time has gone by!

Tiffy continues to do extremely well and is a delight. She goes to doggie day care now once a week….occasionally twice….so she can play with other dogs. (She had to take a test in order to get in and passed with flying colors!) She absolutely loves it and can’t wait to get in the door as soon as we get there. We’re told that she really gets along well with the other dogs. The staff there is very fond of her……and Tiffy can, as you know, be irresistibly cute!! At the end of the day we can’t wait to pick her up, though. We really miss her when she’s not at home with us.

Back at home Tiffer LOVES to play ball (with one that’s squeaky and one that’s silent!) and to go for long walks around the farm. She now also has a large fenced in area where she can run around off leash. As always, she enjoys lying in the sun soaking up the rays!

I’ve sent along a couple of pictures. One we just love, taken when she was sound asleep, and the other captures Tiffer taking a break from a hard day at the office!  ;-)

As the months have gone on, we’ve really come to feel that Tiffer was destined to be part of our family. She is truly a blessing and we are so happy to have her with us. Thank you so much for rescuing her and enabling us to bring her home!

Hi LoveHandlers!

Here is a pic of Mika enjoying the beach! She loves the beach! Mika was running and biting at the water. We love this dog so much and couldn’t be happier! She seems to be happy here with us too!
