Shakira has gone to a terrific home where she has another border collie to play with and where she will play many fun border collie games. Shakira's new name is Kira and she is so happy with her new family. We think it is a great place for a young border collie pup to grow up.

Sabine (Formerly Jewel)

Hi There. Just wanted to let you know how Sabine is doing with us. At the beginning of April we had new neighbours move in next door. They have a 2 year old terrier cross and he and Sabine are fast friends. When they wrestle they literally take turns being on the bottom. The neighbours have been very generous in letting the dogs tear around their yard. She is definitely a frisbee dog, though a ball will do in the absence of a frisbee and her fetching is amazing. If she doesn't bring it close enough, you can just tell her to bring it and she does. On the other hand, she isn't much of a catcher. I'm not sure she'd be a flyball candidate. I was telling Tim just yesterday when we were throwing balls at the off-lead that it would be like elementary school all over again - she'd be the dog no one wanted on their team. Sigh... people keep telling me she'll grow INTO it. They haven't seen the ball bounce on her head on the third bounce. Her spay went well and her right ear has stopped flopping forwards, which makes me a little sad, but now she might be even cuter with one floppy ear and one not. We are enjoying Sabine very much!

BJ is one lucky girl. She has gone to live with a lovely couple and she is their first dog. BJ has completely wiggled her way INTO their hearts and laps and is extremely happy as you can see by her photo. Thanks for keeping in touch BJ.

Banquo

Banquo is a very lucky boy! He has recovered FROM his mange and was adopted to a really nice couple who changed his name to Grommit. He gets to live with another dog and many cats on a large acreage. Grommit is well loved and very spoiled so we're sure he'll be very happy in his new home.

Holly

Holly is amazing, I couldn't ask for a better dog. We go through the Mill Creek off leash twice a day, so she always meets new dogs. We've been to the Terwillegar and Laurier off leash parks a few times as well. One of the pictures below is of her friend Parker, he lives across the alley, he comes over most days too. We live in a very dog-friendly neighborhood : ) She loves being in the backyard, especially now that it's so nice out. She's pretty protective though, she barks at anyone who walks down the alley. She has gotten to know the neighbors and the neighborhood kids, so she leaves them alone now. But anyone else..... look out. She also has a tendency to growl at people who are walking without dogs when we're in the ravine. So I'm going to take her walking someplace like Whyte Ave so she can see that not all people have dogs. We've had our nephews over a few times, she's just not interested in kids. But she will growl at them when we're out on walks. Something else we are working on. Anyhow, I could write a novel about how great she is, but you already know! Oh, we've taught her to shake a paw, high five and roll over, each trick too about 5 minutes to teach. She is SO smart. The high food motivation will go a long way! She starts obedience school tomorrow (they told us to skip puppy kindergarten) and when she's a year old, we'll do agility for sure. We're going to Vancouver Island at the beginning of May, so she'll experience her first camping trip, hopefully she's a good tent sleeper! So to make a long story short, Holly is awesome and I feel so lucky to be the one to adopt her. Kathy

Scout

Hello there! I just wanted to give you an UPDATE on how Scout is doing. She finished her obedience classes in March and passed with flying colours, she got 99%! She is a very smart little girl and learns quickly. She and Chester are inseparable and it is so cute to see them play together. She is learning not to jump up, rarely does it inside anymore or at the off leash park but we still have to work on it in the back yard. She is definitely a snuggly girl and doesnt take no for an answer when she sees you have had a bad day and need a snuggle, whether you realize it or not. She had her first trip to our vet yesterday, to UPDATE her shots. She was really good there, charmed all the staff. Chester snuck out of the house when we were leaving as he wouldnt have her going anywhere without him so he waited in the vehicle while she was in the office. He definitely keeps an eye out for his little sister. She loves to roll around in the grass and play in the yard so I guess we will have to get used to her being off-white as that is the colour she returns to within days of being bathed. All in all, we are still very happy to have her as part of our family and I think she is very happy to be here. She has really relaxed and settled in to her new home and routine and is really attached to us and to her big brother. She loves her weekly day care day and runs like the wind on our trips to the off leash, well, maybe prances is more like it as she practically flies through the air in the meadow. We are very close to the Buena Vista off leash area so are able to go there frequently. When the ice is completely thawed we are curious to see how she likes the water and how well she can swim as she keeps heading that direction when we are there but for now we have to tell her no. Chester is a big swimmer so I am sure she will be too as she likes to do whatever he does. We fell in love with her the minute we met her and feel fortunate that we are the ones that get to give her a forever home. Janet and Brent

Sparky

Sparky Image

Our wonderful boy Sparky came to us in August of 2005. We were initially going to foster Sparky but it only took a few days to realize he wasnt going to leave our home. His crooked smile and funny antics stole out hearts. He has an 8 year old sister named Lara that he took to right away. He loves the outdoors, chasing birds and eating wasps but his most favorite thing to do is going for rides in his Daddys work van. He has been a blessing to our family.Thank you Nasap for bringing him INTO our lives!
