I had on my to-do list to send you a note! Solomon is AWESOME!! We have been blessed with the BEST dog!! He traveled the four hours home with us so well. I'm sure he was a bit nervous just not knowing what was going on.
He has adjusted so well. He didn't eat anything for a few days except treats but is now eating two squares a day. He has slept next to our bed every night since we have brought him home, he is completely house trained and is even learning to "go" on command outside. He downs and stays in the living room while we eat dinner and is learning more and more every day.
I just can't brag about him enough. He has lots of new toys and chewables and has only chewed up one toy of the girls (oops) but he seems to love the girls and his new home and is a complete puppy with so much excitement to greet us if we leave him in his crate and come home. (although the longest he has been alone so far is 3 hours!)
He has already shown protective qualities of the girls and us when someone comes into our home but nothing agressive. Just kind of like he was with us when he met us. He is fine once he knows the visitors are fine. He is very respectful or terrified of the neighbors cat and just kind of ignores him. ;-) The cat is not real friendly when he comes around. On walks he is friendly with everyone he meets.
He gets to meet our vet next Friday and the vet office is so excited to meet him. They know how hard it was for us to lose Sparky, our last dog.
I believe we have decided to leave his name Solomon. He gets a lot of Sol and Solly but think he is officially Solomon for life. Everyone seems to like it and we think it is very fitting.
So there is really nothing I can complain about which is good! He is becoming a wonderful family member and we just love him so much. Can't thank you enough for giving him to us. Would love to be able to talk to the previous owners to find out where he came from but you are probably unable to give out that information. Just curious who his mom and dad, brothers and sisters were but no big deal if we can't .............we love him no matter what.
I have one picture of the girls and him next to the Cape bridge I wll send in a seperate email but plan on getting more to send you.
Thanks again for everything you do for the animals in need and thanks for Solomon! We got a wonderful new dog!!
Hi Carol! Just wanted you to know how much we love and are enjoying Pop Korn (now named Poppy). Her vet check was great, she's had her rabies vaccination, and her hot spot has healed. She was housebroken in about a minute, and she is a wonderful little dog who's stolen our hearts. Thanks so much for all you do, and for rescuing Poppy. Judith
Good afternoon all! Hope everyone had a great Holiday season. As for us, we are all pretty much happy that it is all behind us and we are looking forward to a great 2011.
I wanted to let you know that Peanut is one of the most loved pets in the world! Mom and Dad headed out to Phoenix for 2 months to get out of the cold and to visit with daughter, Jane and her family. Bob and I are keeping Peanut with us while they are gone. They are renting a condo that does not allow pets or he would have traveled with them.
He has blended in with our family in the best way. Everyone loves him and he is quite at home and comfortable around small children as well as the older grandkids. We had some apprehensions about keeping him with our 3-legged Weimaraner Ozzie, but the two of them are doing well together. Peanut holds his own when the play gets rough. . . .
We have been taking some photos and we promise to send you a few for your board. Mom and Dad will be back to Missouri some time around the end of March....they miss him terribly! We may have to ask for ransom to give him back to them!
Take care, all of you! and we will send you photos soon....you may not recognize him... he is a little pudgy!
I just wanted to email you and let you know how wonderful Muffy is doing. She has slept all night long every night since I brought her home, she very seldom every whines, and has only had one accident in the house. She is already used to going to the bathroom outside and goes almost every time we take her out. I have bought her some toys to play with and she is very fond of the rawhide puppy bones, I think they are her favorite. She is getting more used to me and my boyfriend and she loves to be held and cuddled with; in fact she is very much a lap dog, she sits with us and sleeps in our laps every chance she gets. I absolutely love her! I’m so happy to have her living in our home. She is wonderful, and I appreciate you allowing me to adopt her from you. . . .
I"m so sorry I haven't written you to let you know about (Roman) Gizmo. As you can imagine we've been busy ha ha! Roman is adjusting wonderfuly to our family and home. I couldn't have picked a better brother for Harry, or a better puppy for Tynn and I. It didn't take him long to get on our schedule, and into our routine. He's doing great! Roman loves to cuddle up with me on the couch, and gives lots of kisses! He's quite the eater though, I have to watch to make sure he doesn't sneak over to Harry's bowl. They play all the time together, and Harry has helped us to teach him our favorite game of tag! I would like to personally thank you for being so generous with helping us to welcome him! I couldn't have done it without you! We're very happy and this has made our great life even better! Thank you again, and please let me know if we can do anything for you guys! We'd love to help out where ever needed!
Talk to you soon! Love, Tynn, Casey, Harry, and Roman (Gizmo)
