September 18, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Bootsie!

September 23, 2010 – Bootsie is doing great! Other than a few potty accidents she is really doing good.  She is so calm!  She does enjoy chasing her big human brothers as they ride their bikes through the yard.

October 29, 2010 – Bootsie is doing terrific.  She loves her human big brothers and her big soft bed.  She is very much an inside dog as she neither likes the cold or the heat.  She does however follow the sun that beats down in the kids playroom through the windows.  She always finds the sunny spot on the carpet and follows it as the sun moves.

We had her spayed last Wednesday and if it wasn’t for the staples you would never know the dog had surgery.  She is recovering great and it is hard to remember that she needs to take it a little easy.   She is a great girl and we are so happy to have found her.

Hank Jr.


July 3, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Hank Jr.!

July 4, 2010 – Hinckley (formerly known as Hank Jr.) has his own facebook page Hinckley Meredith. He updates several times a day on all his adventures!  He has settled in really well. We are having fun with the stairs he went to sleep yesterday on them because he found them so “stressful”…he has seen the cat he showed little interest and he is napping at the moment:)))



July 3, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Abbie!



June 25, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Austin!

July 6, 2010 – Austin is a wonderful dog. Thank you so much!



June 19, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, JR!

July 14, 2010 – He is doing very well.  He loves my adult class and the students love him.  He is so sweet and everyone loves him.  I just have to break him of the jumping up on people as he likes to do that when he is happy.  He is being followed by my vet, and seems to enjoy living here very much.  He was playing in the studio.  He loves to dance, but he doesn’t stay still long enough for a plie.  You should come take my adult class and you will get to see him often.

May 8, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Duke!

May 9, 2010 – Duke is doing great! The poor thing is wiped out – Every kid in the neighborhood has been here to visit and play.   He slept in Jeremy’s room last night-we left him at home this morning out of the crate while we went to church and he was fine.   He is eating and seems to be adjusting fine.  He is the sweetest and calmest thing ever.  We are thrilled to have him with us.   A good friend of mine has already started looking at the site to find a lab of her own.

July 5, 2011 – We adopted our lab Duke in May of 2010- I wanted to give you an update-  Duke is such a great dog, he is quirky, funny, smart and loyal just to name a few of his wonderful personality traits- I can’t imagine why anyone would have been so careless to let a great dog like him go- Their loss was certainly our gain. We just got back from the beach, where Duke learned to jump the waves!  Thank you so much for trusting our family with one of your labs-

April 25, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Turtle!

April 26, 2010 – Sully’s (formerly known as Turtle) first night was great!!!! She has her own room and bathroom. Even though she has a huge bed to sleep on, she would rather hang out in the shower! She went to work with me today and got a bath and nail trim. She is such a love!

May 9, 2010 – I just wanted to give an update on Sully (Turtle)…  Sully is doing great! She is such a good dog!! Last weekend we went to see my parents in Nashville. She did great in the car and during the thunderstorms! She loves playing outside and going for walks. She thinks that she is a lap dog and likes to cuddle with everyone! I’ve attached some pictures! We love her!!!

March 31, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Auburn!

June 23, 2010 – I just took a few photos of Abby (formerly known as Auburn) playing with her “big sister” Anna.  I would say she is pretty well potty trained.  She whimpers and goes to a door or window when she needs potty.  She drinks so much water so she has to potty a lot in the mornings and then she settles down after a walk and will sleep for a few hours.

We all love her and very much enjoy having her in our lives.

March 30, 2010 – Cooper rocks.  Dena and I renamed him Marshall (the world’s best dog named after the world’s best guitar amplifier…he’s got a great deep bark).

He is coming along just fine and he REALLY enjoys his tennis balls and long belly rubs.



March 20, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Seagram!


March 20, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Cassidy!

Jack Daniels

March 20, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Jack Daniels!

March 30, 2010 – Jack Daniels,  renamed Jake, is doing well and continues to mimic his brothers. Accidents are becoming fewer and his desire to explore is becoming broader. He answers to the name Buppie. Here are some pictures. The cat was in the room but refused to pose.



March 20, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Chanel!


March 14, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Pendleton!


March 14, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Mason!

 Mason is doing great. Very little transition. It’s like he has lived here for months. He’s really enjoying the big back yard. And he and Abbey are doing just fine.

February 21, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, David!

February 27, 2010 – Mr. David update…. He is a NYC boy now…. sleeping with his brother on the way to his new home.

Dogs were great on the trip. 14 hours of sleeping. We got up and went to Madison square park dog run this morning. David has been great all week and adjusted well. He Is taking to the training well, too.


March 18, 2010 – David is doing great. He has an amazing personality and is very easy to train.  We take him to the Madison Square Park every morning and he has done very well with the other dogs and people. Now that the weather is starting to break, we are looking to find out what kind of swimmer he is.  I’ll keep you informed of his status.


February 18, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Ruth!

February 13, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Cupid!


January 31, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Dasher!

February 10, 2010 – We decided to call Mr. Dasher, Luke. Here’s a photo of Luke in his crate with his favorite toy. He loves to bit the heart shape on the toy, which makes a “kiss smacking noise”.


March 5, 2010 – It’s hard to believe that a month has already past since adopting Luke. Here is a photo of Luke in the snow two weeks ago. He loves playing in the snow! Also, as you can see from the other photo he is getting big…time for a new bed! From the last photo, you can see that Annie has finally accepted Luke. The are so cute together!

Luke is fitting into our home nicely. The other animals have finally come around to fact that he is part of the family. We are thankful to have Luke, he has brought much joy into our family.


January 30, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Prada!

January 17, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Jolie!


January 9, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Prancer!


January 3, 2010 – Happy Gotcha Day, Selah!

January 17, 2010 – Selah has now been renamed Missy; it just seems to fit in with us better! She did great last night.  She goes potty right when I take her out, and on our walks, she’ll poop away from the house.  This afternoon, she whimpered a little, so I took her out and she proceeded to poop. She’s very good about playing with her toys.  The downside is that she’s discovered our grandchildren’s playroom upstairs and has helped herself to a couple of old stuffed animals, but it isn’t a problem. She’s gotten up on our bed a couple of times, but gets down immediately when we tell her. We are working on commands, starting with “Come” and she seems to be catching on. We introduced her to Bob’s 93-year old dad yesterday who really fell in love with her; he would love to have another dog if he was able to take care of one.  Our 5-year old grandchildren had a blast running around their yard holding onto the leash!  We feel like she’s a good fit for our family!  Not too rambunctious, but not too lazy and slow, either.  Thanks for your help with her adoption!
