Lucky now Dax

Lucky now Dax  Image

Dax (Formerly known as Lucky ;) ) is doing great! He absolutely loves living on the acreage. He and his brother are doing well together. We are excited to take him camping for the first time in a couple weeks. Dax still loves cuddles, naps, and hiding in his "caves". He's growing up and is 21 kg! He took training classes and was very well-liked there and got along with all the other dogs very well.  We are just working at training Dax not jumping up or play too rough (he likes to nip when he plays). He is completely spoiled and extremely loved.

Squeaky Beaks

A Happy Tails update on Squeaky Breaks!
“It has been 10 years since we adopted Squeaky Breaks (Squeaks)! He has been a great addition to our family! He is very entertaining and vocal. He loves getting crackers for a special treat. He is now about 22+ years old and still has a lot of energy!”


Sherlock Image

Sherlock is doing amazing! He is a totally different dog compared to when I first met him. He has completely come out of his shell and is so happy. He is a sweet, gentle boy and listens very well! Around a month into having him, his separation anxiety started to show again so we began training for this again. We did 2 weeks of training and I started to leave him access to the back mud room/door and haven't had a problem since. We also spent the first few weeks doing recall training as he easily gets distracted when wondering around off leash, he now comes instantly when called. He shows no timidness anymore when going to new places/parks/etc. He loves being around my other dog and loves chasing him at the park when we go play frisbee. Now that the weather is nicer, he wants to spend all his time in the backyard laying in the sun. I will attach some pictures for you all.  
He is the perfect fit for the family, everybody loves him!

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 Image

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  Image

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!


Hebert Family 

Coco now CODA

Coco now CODA Image

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!
