Kahn – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/kahn-1.jpeg” width=”176″ height=”234″ text=”Leisurely Drive” plain=”1″]

Kahn is doing amazing!!!! He lights up our whole day.

We have been taking him to a new pet friendly restaurant or store every day and then we play fetch in the front yard. He already knows sit, down, and spin! He has learned how to nudge us to go potty as well.

He is spending time with all my friends dogs as well as my family’s dogs and they all play well together. I totally lucked out by getting him.

We are signing up for his puppy classes at Teamworks (where Jesi works) next week!

Thank you so much for being a big part of what led him to me! The world needs more people like you and Jesi!

Thank you!!!

Junior – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/junior-300×225.jpg” width=”300″ height=”225″ text=”Junior Enjoying the New Toys” plain=”1″]

Junior is doing great. He settled right in with only a few pee accidents in the house, as we were learning from each other when we needed to go out. He has put on a few more pounds, which the vet is pleased with.

We are all wondering how we managed before Junior came into our hearts. He is such a playful, loving dog. He has made several new “doggie” friends in the neighborhood. All of whom love it when he comes over to play:).

He really enjoys sleeping in one of the kids rooms at night, which they fight over whose turn it is. And, still uses his crate when we are out of the house, slowly starting to give him a little more freedom for short amounts of time.

We are still working on getting him to come when called, but he has done really well knowing what are his toys and not. The vacuum cleaner is one of his favorite “pastimes” loves to bark at it and keeps expecting it to start playing with him.

This weekend will be his first road trip in the car. Not expecting any issues as he loves going for a ride when we go up to Joyner or I’m dropping kids off somewhere

Nemo – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/tinker-225×300.jpg” width=”225″ height=”300″ text=”Nemo” plain=”1″]Formerly Tinker

Hello Miss Emory!

He was an amazing boy yesterday! When y’all left, we took him for an hour walk around the park. He was not used to walks on a leash so it took some time getting him used to us leading. He loved sniffing everything of course and he would flip out in the best of ways when ever he saw other dogs. He is still unsure of meeting strangers and people riding bicycles scare the dickens out of him, but he is learning and adjusting very well.

We took him on another car ride to Gabe’s parents house. It took some time and plenty of Oscar Meyer Bologna to convince him that his parents weren’t going to hurt him. Poor little guy was scared of any males trying to pet him. I can only imagine what his life was like before…

Anyways, they have a HUGE backyard so he had a blast running around! He loves his squeaky toys! We gave him another walk with the family before the night was over and he did a lot better with the walk. He even jumped in the car all by himself when we were leaving to go home! He is so smart!

I gave him a bath when he got home. He was nervous but after some coaxing he did just fine. It took some time for him to relax and go to sleep. He kept trying to dig his bones in the carpet to save for later! He seems to groan in his sleep. I hope he wasn’t home sick…

Around 430 he woke me up to go pee. He has been perfect since. He went for two long walks today and we heard his first bark this morning! He saw some religious people walking around door to door and was so curious! He’s taking a nap right now.

Oh! And by the way! Our neighbors actually gave us a free dog cage! It’s huge! They were moving and didn’t make the room for it so they offered it to us. I do appreciate your offer for your cage. Thank you so much for your generosity! And thank you for little ‘Nemo’! 🙂

Linis – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/lance-300×168.jpg” width=”300″ height=”168″ text=”Linis with his pack” plain=”1″]Formerly Lance

Linis is eating well these days, maybe too well. Eagan leaves food all over house, Linis is quick to find it. We are learning to keep all food up high. Avi is tall but she isn’t as quick as Linis.

Aram said last week Linis has been a great addition to the family. He is big enough to handle Eagan playing with him but small enough for a 4 dog house hold. He is very sweet.

I’m having dog hair problems. I started combing him and Avi with FurGo comb two weeks ago. I was combing Linis 4 times a day and the hair was still coming out. Now I just comb 1 to 2 times a day. Last summer I shaved avi after vet suggestion. She has chow fur in the winter. By summer was improved and I think Avi liked it. The kids hated her being shaved. I won’t do that to Linis but I will shave Avi in a few months.

Thanks, Linis is awesome

Luke is doing fantastic,especially with the baby! We are so proud of him:)

He gets regular check ups and manicures at the vet and is in great health! We couldn’t imagine our lives without him!

As you can see he always right there with his sister!

Addy – A Happy Tail

Hey, just wanted to update you. She’s had a seamless transition into our home, we couldn’t have asked for anything better, she is so sweet and loving and is completely spoiled rotten now.

She didn’t respond to the name Stormy, so my little ones started calling her Addy, she’s beginning to recognize and respond to her new name.

She’s really attached to my son, when he comes home from school the moment he sits down she in his lap.

When we lounge she likes to sleep on her back and stretch out, she has one heck of a personality.

She’s great, and we just want to say thank you!

Oreo – A Happy Tail

Obi seems as puzzled as I am about why Oreo likes to sleep in the sink! These 2 are the most awesome kitties I have ever seen together. They took about 10 seconds to bond when Oreo arrived.

Thanks for the great work you do!

Leda – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Leda3-300×231.jpg” width=”300″ height=”231″ text=”Leda enjoying the outdoors” plain=”1″]

We’ve had a good week. We’ve decided to call her Leda, and she’s so much fun. She plays like a puppy sometimes. She was a little unsure of the dog park at first, but now it’s one of her favorite things to do. We take her in the mornings, and our dog walker’s been taking her in the afternoons with some doggie neighbors. She gets along with all of them and her special buddy is a boxer named Tillie.

You were right about her being a picky eater. I’m still working on getting her to eat dry dog food. She wouldn’t eat the Science diet, so I’m trying her on a new brand called Annamaet (salmon flavored, of course), and so far she’s eating a little bit of that. I supplement with a cooked egg in the morning and ground up chicken in the evening, plus a daily bully stick treat. We’re also working on teaching her to tell us when she needs to pee. She’s had a few accidents, but I’m sure she’ll learn quickly.

I’m sending a photo from today. I want to get some action photos and when I do I’ll send them along. She’s a real speed demon when she gets going—

Sochi – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Sochi-in-new-home-300×168.jpg” width=”300″ height=”168″ text=”Sochi in his new home” plain=”1″]

I can understand why the woman who had to give him up for adoption cried. He is the most loving cat and the calmest cat I’ve ever seen. And I’ll add the bravest cat.

I was going to keep him in the back bedroom, but he wasn’t going to have any of that. I set up two gates one on top of the other thinking that he couldn’t jump over them. But he proved me wrong. As soon as I left his sight he jumped over both of those fences which is equivalent to about a little over 4 feet and the next thing I know he was in the living room with me and the dogs. He doesn’t mind the dogs at all, he’s not a bit afraid of them.

My other cat Kuna finally got to see him and he’s not very happy about it right now. Kuna is a very sweet cat but he’s always been very afraid, but I’m hoping that with time he will come around. Sochi didn’t mind at all that Kuna was yelling at him very loudly . He just laid there is if nothing was happening. I cannot believe how wonderful he is and how brave he is. I do believe that if anybody can turn around Kuna it’ll be him.

Wish us the best of luck. I’m so very happy to have him as he lays right by my side at this very minute. He’s all sprawled out on his back with his tummy ready to be rubbed again.

Right now I have all of my animals except for Kuna right beside me as I write.
