Sonic, a diamond in the rough.

Posted by & filed under Love Stories.

Sonic was a mess when we first saw him. He was scared to death, shaking with fear, snarly and snappy in the kennel. We asked to meet him and we were given very serious warnings that he had a bite history and life is on his terms only and that is never going to change…. Read more »

Remus (formerly known as Patrick) was adopted as an almost 4 month old lab mix puppy in October of 2019. When we first brought him home, he was nervous in crowds and partly bald due to mange.

This little man came into our lives in October as a three month old ball of spunk. He was obviously well cared for at the NEAS because he socialized immediately. Fenny loves and is loved so much. If you are looking for a new fur baby, this animal shelter is the place to go.

Angry Ninja has a Sweet Side

Posted by & filed under Love Stories.

Today marks a month since “Angry” Ninja (formerly Lucy) arrived home. Not much was known about Ninja’s past, other than that she was left for some time on her own after her former owner passed, leaving her understandably sour with everyone else. After about a week of settling in, she allowed me near enough to… Read more »

Alistair boops to say ‘hello.’

Posted by & filed under Love Stories.

Alistair, formerly known as Hugh, is settling in nicely! He’s proving to be quite independent, which I don’t mind as I am working from home, but he always joins me on the couch at the end of the day and likes to say hello by touching his nose to mine. He’s getting more vocal at… Read more »
