Coco is now named Jolene. She is a very sweet cuddle bug!  She is eating and sleeping well in my bed and I am very happy with her. 

 She loves the beach, it is totally her happy place.I am definitely her favorite person and she has started to become a little wild and crazy when she is excited because of my arrival home. Puppy-ish behavior like jumping and flailing paws in your face but she means well and is still super sweet.  She is very calm otherwise.  She is very fearful about noises like thunder and cars and motorcycles…you can tell this is a whole new world to her!  When I first brought her home I turned on a ceiling fan and she nearly jumped out of her skin!  Same thing the first time I had to use windshield wipers in the car.  But if I tell her its ok, she feels better immediately.

She has made a couple of dog friends who she plays and has fun with. She is a smart girl and it was easy to teach her sit and to jump in and out of the car!

It was about 16 years ago that we brought Kali home with us. She was an amazing dog and gave so much love during her life with us. She loved hiking the mountains of Acadia National Park.

Sadly she passed in her bed with us by her side. She had many wonderful years and even at the end continued to give her love.

I adopted Brady (formally known as Charlie) back in March 2014. At the time he was only a year old.

The last 6 years together have flown by. He enjoys going on hikes, playing with his squeaky ball, and lots and LOTS of cuddles.

He definitely brightens up any room he walks in!

We brought Blueberry home at the end of March, right before the shelter had to close for Covid-19. She is now 5 months old and we can not imagine our family without her.

We did a DNA test and Blueberry is part German Shepard and Catahoula Leopard Dog. Her coat is all Catahoula and gets so many compliments.

Blueberry loves nature. Her favorite walks are in the woods where she can explore and her athleticism and agility are on full display.  She is also a thief! Nothing gives her more pleasure than sneaking in a room to steal a sock.

She’s about 37 pounds now and so beautiful! We are so lucky!

Enzo, previously known as Tip, is the sweetest puppy. We got him at 4 months, and he is already almost 7 months old; how time flies!

He already knows sit, down, paw, stay, come, crate, and he’s working on place. He loves absolutely everything and everyone.

Enzo is a fearless pup and is curious about everything he sees. He loves being the center of attention and will put himself right in the middle of the action.

We are beyond lucky to have the most even tempered, loving pup. Thanks NEAS!

Georgia has adjusted well. She is not a great eater but the vet says she is a fine weight and probably just holding out for snacks!
She is excellent at snuggling and sleeping, as you can see from her photo. Housebreaking is going great. She’s only had just a few accidents and they were probably the human’s fault not hers. Loves to play with any dog, big or small, and even wants to play with the horses out on the beach!
She travels excellently,  and loves the car. She spends most of her weekends in Maine with us walking the beach and playing.
Georgia is a perfect fit! She has brought lots of joy to our home. Thank You, Thank You!!!

This is Talulah, formerly Remi.  My husband and I adopted her on MLK Day 2020.  She was so frightened our son had to carry her to the car and she trembled and leaned into him all the way home.  She was afraid to get into the car or even walk through a doorway without our help. 

Fast forward to the present and she has come so far!  We are patient and caring with her and every day she becomes more trusting and more bold.  She has even started to jump in the back seat with no help from anyone!  She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body and she loves everyone she meets, human, other dogs, and even cats. 

Her favorite hobbies are playing with her toys, running laps around the backyard, and napping.  She responds well to commands and is learning more each day.  We are very happy that she has become part of our family.

We absolutely LOVE Gilbert – he’s the best cat we’ve ever had. He’s playful, cuddly, social, and very intelligent. He is great with strangers. Kids scare him a bit at first, but he warms up. He loves to be picked up and held when we come home from work, and he always wants to be in the same room as us. He is a very big boy, and you can hear him “thud” whenever he jumps off of anything onto the ground. He’s so soft and has such a funny personality. He feels like the kind of cat you watch funny YouTube videos about – everything he does is a home video.

He snores when he sleeps, he sometimes sleeps on his back with his paws in the air, and he likes to sleep next to me or my husband at least for part of the night most nights. He doesn’t really like sleeping on us or being on laps, but he needs to be close to us. He is really talkative, and we’ve started learning what his different meows mean. Most of the time he is just chirping away at us, or he wants us to play with him. We got him a bed for the window which he sits in a lot, watching the cars and birds outside. I’ve never had a cat that intentionally knocks so many things off tables and nightstands. On one of his first nights, he was in our bedroom and I woke up every half hour to him on a different piece of furniture, batting something off the edge with his paw. I can’t leave anything on my nightstand anymore, or he’ll get up on it during the night and knock each item over with his paws, one by one. When I get ready in the morning, he jumps up on the vanity and will bat my toothbrush or makeup brushes off the vanity one by one. I’ve watched him do this several times, much to his own amusement. I have never felt more like a “cat” mom 🙂

Ramon is a wonderful addition to our family. The change since when we first met him is amazing. He is all wiggles and kisses! He eats great and is about 11.5 pounds now.  Finn (our other pooch) still competes with attention and still has some jealousy issues but we are getting through it. The boys play, run around the house, eat, and sleep together. 
We just love him so much! His personality is just great and he has so much love in his little heart. Thank you!

Harry, formerly known as Gage, is doing great!  He was a bit skittish when I first brought him home but he is getting used to cars driving by on our walks and navigating stairs.
He loves toys, running around the yard, and he is the best snuggler!
I am very happy with my new roommate (especially now that we are stuck at home).
