Tony, Tony, Tony — I sure do miss that little guy.  He came to us from a family that didn’t socialize him and so the whole outside world was a very BIG and SCARY place.  Tony reacted by trying to run and hide.  If that wasn’t successful then he became a whirling, churning biting machine.  …

Tess

We’re looking for a foster home for Tess.  She is a great family dog — especially with older kids who won’t get knocked over when she walks by.  Tess is such a love, the first time I picked her up to take her to an adoption event, it took me 20 minutes and lots of …

Cassie and Marti

Peas in a pod.  Both need slow introductions and both are scared of “giant humans” that reach forward to pet them.  Both are excellent, loving dogs at home and just need to experience the world a little more to be comfortable in new (to them) situations.  Each are with an experienced foster and are eager …

Five Weeks Of Terror

Can you imagine that?  Sweeney and Miss Lovett were placed with an experienced cat-foster several weeks ago.  Our foster offered a quiet, child-free home with one other cat.  For FIVE WEEKS Miss Lovett was a ghost.  Oh, she came out and ate, she used the litter box but she was not seen.  Sweeney was out …

New beginnings

So many pups in their new homes and doing so well with their new families.  It is always encouraging to hear good stories of the kindness and concern adoptive families have to make the transition into the new home as seamless as possible.  We had a cat in the “cat room” at Viking Vet who …

Cooper

Cooper has left the nest and is now with his new family.  It is always bittersweet to transition the beautiful personalities that I have the opportunity to meet.  Cooper has landed with a loving family, a dog companion and a CAT.  When I drove away yesterday, he was so busy playing that he didn’t even …
