Goose & Maverick

Goose & Maverick  Image

Goose and Maverick are doing great. What a pair! They both have such fun personalities and both will cuddle although Maverick is the champion cuddler. Goose is the more laid back of the two and he’s got a weight advantage over Maverick but she’s much quicker. The go from fighting to cleaning each other and then to playing or napping. The only issue that we’re having, and it’s not with them it’s our issue, is trimming their nails. Both John and I have to get some courage and just do it but neither of us is comfortable doing it. Other than that, they have adjusted just fine.

Hazel is doing great. We’ve had her for about a year now and she’s definitely part of the family!!


Thanks for checking in.


Fury  Image

Fury and Greyson are doing well.  Greyson is starting to be able to go up to a human other than myself.  He actually let the Telus installer touch him.  Fury hid/hides.  He is all over me but not anyone else.  They are in for a two week holiday to sister-in-law's while I'm away.  I'm sure Fury will eat but I don't know how he will take two adults and two teenagers. 

I have hundreds of pictures.  Here's the latest couple.

Maya now Stella

Maya, now Stella, has been doing wonderfully! 

She has adjusted to our family very well! 

We're working on her not barking when dogs walk past our house. She knows to go to the door to go outside to the bathroom but we're working on her letting us know that she's at the door.  Otherwise she's a very happy,well adjusted puppy. We adore her and are so happy that Stella is part of our family! Here's a picture of her with her favorite things, sticks!


Thanks so much for checking in with us!

Coco now CODA

I am actually so glad you contacted us, because I’d love for our foster to get an update on her. Coco is now “Coda” and she is doing great. She adjusted so well to her new home, and really has no issues there! She still loves to sit in laps and is the best foot-warmer I’ve ever met. We are just working on not barking when dogs (and geese!) go by, but she’s getting way better (and lots more practice now that it’s warmer). She’s already learning not to bark at small animals and birds, and will now return even when something interesting is walking in the field behind our house! We took basic obedience at EHS and she was a superstar (except with loose-leash walking near other dogs...). She can sit, stay, lay down, target, place, leave it, jump through a hula hoop, and is just starting to really get loose-leash walking on a consistent basis! The foster will remember that this is a HUGE achievement for her (she sure loved to pull)! I’m a totally proud mom, so I could probably go on forever bragging about her but she is really such a fast learner and positive reinforcement/clicker training has been totally her jam. 


She’s had a rough go health-wise. We have had to work on some husbandry stuff along the way (voluntarily taking eye drops for an eye infection, voluntary nail trims, etc.) About a month after we got her she started having vaginal discharge containing a lot of pus. They did some tests and found something unusual near her cervix and she underwent surgery two weeks ago to remove it. At the same time they removed a leiomyoma, which is really unusual at this age. I’m not sure yet if they problem has been fixed as the discharge is still coming and going post-surgery, poor girl. :( We go back to Guardian this week for a check-up to figure out next steps. I’m also not sure if they’ve implicated this as a complication from her spay. Thank goodness for Trupanion! It’s a struggle but I can’t imagine not having had pet insurance.

We’re so grateful to have found honestly feels like she’s been part of our lives forever, and we can’t imagine life without her. Thank you!

Tank now MARVIN

Tank now MARVIN Image

We absolutely love Marvin (he never seemed like a Tank). He has adjusted to life with us so well. He loves car rides, loud conversations about how many treats he feels he deserves, watching sports on the tv and lounging in front of the fireplace. Now that spring has arrived the discovery of little birds has filled his days. Just like when he was in foster with Anne he comes to the door everyday when one of us comes home. He is growing and seems very happy. He likes his doggy cousins as long as they don’t bark at him and he’s trying to understand why his cat cousins don’t wanna play with him. 

We are delighted with our little buddy. Sorry it was hard to choose just one photo of the little munchkin cause “he’s the most handsome and gifted kitty ever” says his hooman dad.
