Thank you so much for your email!  

I am so happy to report that Sadie and our 2 cats have reached an understanding.  I am no longer worried about them being in the same room.  The chase is still on when one of the cats run, but that is normal behaviour. They can even be within a few feet from one another now!

Sadie is still reactive when we encounter other dogs on our walks, and when she sees the neighbours outside.  Now that the weather is nice I plan on contacting Capable Canines for some one on one sessions to see how we can positively redirect this behaviour.  

We're in our 3rd session of agility and though she's not the star pupil, the socialization with other dogs and people is invaluable :)

We absolutely adore Sadie.  She has made huge improvements over the last 3 months, especially when it comes to the cats - this was our major concern when I had previously contacted NASAP.

Thanks again for your follow up!  



Wagner Image

Well, Wagner is wonderful. I don't know if you knew I still work so he makes my husband take him for a walk twice a day. My boss and his wife went away for a month from the 15th of November till the 15th of December. They have two female  puppies I take care of when they go away. They are 11 and 10 years old a shi tzu and a bichon x;  such loves. Well, for the first minute is was a not pleasant. Bossy pants (me) told them if they didn't behave they would all have a corner to go to and would never get out of if they didn't behave!  Lucky for me everyone thinks I am the alpha male hahaha even my hubby. Those three were super together. We all slept together, yes three puppies and two humans in a king size bed, three puppies in the middle and humans on the outside. The little monkeys would move around so they could each have a turn beside one of us cute cute cute.  My husband is up first in the morning and when I wake I have always massaged the puppies before they get of  the bed to go for their first pee and as you can imagine I can not miss a massage. Now that the two girls are gone, Wagner likes to have an longer one before his first pee.
Christmas in our house is noisy as I have three children all married and nine grandchildren. Well Wagner was in heaven. He loves the children and they love him. Our youngest granddaughter is 4 and when she comes Wagner just gets so excited and she puts her hands on her hips and says "Wagner for goodness sakes settle down" so he just sits and waits for her to tell him to come. Gosh he is a very smart puppy and he has us all trained very well.
We did take him to the vet and he is healthy. I was wondering about those two fat pockets on his belly but the vet said it is normal for bichons and they did give him a shot. We were told he is 15 years old in January but the only thing I see is a puppy full of energy. My husband says he knows about when I will be coming home because Wagner will go to the front door about an hour before and lay and wait till I get home. What is so funny is that I am never home at the same time.
Anyway I hope this helps and this is the information you wanted. You know people say how wonderful we were to get or rescue a puppy so old. I tell them the truth that Wagner rescued us. He really is special and you know what they say about a dog - it is God spelled backwards. When you talk to a dog it goes straight to Gods ears.
Thank you again



Madison Image

She is great!! We love her to pieces. Her first initial check up the vet said she needed knee replacement but we walk her everyday and it seems to have improved. She does not whine or limp anymore. Still has little quirks and we are working on them but the whole family loves her.



Harley Image


Everything is going really great with Harley!! He is a very big boy now, and weighs 50 lbs!! He is so smart, and loves living at the lake. We go for lots of walks on the ice, and he gets to go off the leash on the ice. He loves to run. He has definitely changed our lives for the better, and we love him so much!! He is a big baby, and is an awesome addition to the family!! My daughter Emma is eight years old so her and Harley are very close. It's like they are brother and sister. We just adore our boy.

We are taking him to be neutered this month. We already had him to the vet in Onoway for his first vet check.

Thank you so much for the email, and I am so happy we found our boy with your rescue agency.

Goliath Image

Hi Gayle,

Goliath is doing great, he has settled in very well, he has a brother named Wilbur and they do everything together. It took a few months but they are best buds now. 

He absolutely loves our 2 daughters and he is working on liking the cats. He would like them if he could get close enough. They are a bit skittish still- he runs up to see them and they think they are being chased!

Now that he is on one brand of food his hair is really soft too.

His leg pain seems to be very minimal- he takes glucosamine/chondritin every day and has only needed pain meds 4 times.

He seems very happy. He is a mommy's boy for sure.

Follows me everywhere. I did go away for 2 weeks and he went to boarding and did very well there, even with a lot of dogs.

Chewie (now Chuck)

Chewie (now Chuck) is a goofball of a cat! He is getting along well with his sister, Sasquatch and our new daughter. We know we signed a contract stating he won't go outside, but apparently he didn't get the memo! Every time we open the back door he bolts for it! It's apparently his favorite game, "make the human chase me around the yard". Good times.

Thanks for the follow up.
