Pets of the Month
Here is a picture for you of Alfie with his new sister Isabelle. They love each other and are taking a nap together now. Thanks again!!Petunia and I are doing great. She sleeps with me every night and usually tries to get under the covers. During the day she is a bundle of energy and runs around with her toys and climbs up and down the cat tree. We are slowly introducing her to our other cat. He is mostly ignoring her right now but keeps his ears up and watches her from a distance. I think with time they will get along just fine. I am attaching some pictures of her. Maybe you can pass them along to Ben (I believe that was the little boys name who fostered her).
It's been a little over a year and we wanted to give you an update on Murphy
(formerly Monkey)! We love this little guy!!! Murphy has turned out to be such
a lovable, fun, playful addition to our family. He still has some things to
work on, but he has made a lot of progress! He is now our official greeter when
we have people over. He has become a lot more comfortable with people, and has
a blast at the dog park - on the small dog side, of course. His favorite
things are going for walks and playing with his "sister", Daisy. We have
included a short video of this in addition to a few photos. Murphy also LOVES
being petted/a lap dog as you'll see in the pictures; and being on patrol in the
back yard for skunks, cats, and anything else that moves (he has only been
skunked one time... so far). Another thing that Murphy has come to love is our
trips to our family property, in the mountains, where he can be his 100% terrier
self. He gets to be off leash, chase chipmunks, and dig to his hearts content.
Thank you for all the time and effort you (and Casey) put into Murphy in order
to help him realize that people don't have to be mean and scary! We are very
grateful that you didn't give up on him, or finding a home for him, in spite of
his behavioral issues. Murphy seems to be happy in his new pack. Thanks,
again, for all you've done!
Rich and Andie
Happy's Happy Ending!
(a.k.a. Teddy, a.k.a. Dexter)
Prior to adopting Dexter, my husband and I searched for months. At first, it was just informational browsing, but then I saw Dexter’s picture on PetFinder. His description was perfect—just the dog to keep up with my crazy little Bichon/ Shih Tzu mix. She was in need of a high-energy pal, one who could chase her around the living room, wrestle like a bear, and rest when appropriate.
When we met Dexter in Davis, it was love at first sight for everyone involved. He has been the most amazing fit ever since. He loves to lie between the pillows of me and my husband, follow me where ever I go, and eat sticks in the back yard. Although the prevention of playing was very, very difficult, he has recovered well from his knee surgery. I am so pleased that the Yolo SPCA decided to rescue Dexter and raise the money to fix his luxating patella. He will be spoiled rotten for the rest of his days.
