Thank you for changing our lives!
You should be so proud of these dogs! They've done
nothing but nudge their little noses into our hands
for attention. They have behaved so well, that my
declared this morning before they left for Tahoe,
"This is amazing...it's like they've lived here for
Last night we gave them the pick of sleeping domain,
and left the bedroom doors open...Mooch was easy
going, he just wants lots of space and his own floor
space---and sleeps through the night. Fly was a
little more to handle. She jumped onto the bed with
us and fell right asleep, but at about 3am, she was
just sitting up, panting, and squirming around. So we
took her out back to do her thing. After a few rounds
of that, she was still squirmy, and we just thought,
"Well, she's just anxious to be in a new place," and
upon returning to the living room from the backyard,
she jumped right up onto the sofa and laid her head on
the armrest like it had been her perch for years...she
slept like a baby the rest of the night.
lots of water, so we're assuming they are just
adjusting. We took them for a long walk first thing
this morning, and fed them upon returning. We gave
them each a green treat to clean their teeth at lunch,
and we'll feed them again at dinner. They've already
been for another long walk, and we're taking them to
the doggie park right now, so plenty of excercise is
not going to be a problem.
found what we think is a great way to apply Mooch's
ointment---while he was napping during a movie
last night at about 9 o'clock, Amy just quick
rubbed it on, and before he knew what happened,
it was all over & his nose was looking much
better already! (but he really doesn't like having
it applied if he suspects it's coming).
We're brushing them on the back deck right now, and
they're as happy as I think 2 dogs can be, really. I
can't imagine a better home for them, and they've
settled in amazingly fast. I've never seen anything
like it (which is probably cause for being very
cautious with them as well).
My parents were so impressed with you, the rescue, and your web site, they
really wanted me to send my regards, and thank
you again for making our birthdays so very special.
Amy's excited to send you photos of Mooch in his slim
and trim state very soon!
Again, thanks for making the drive, and you should
feel really good about placing these guys with a
wonderful family who's going to take such good care
of them...This is really a life changing experience,
and this means so much to us.
Thanks Kim, Look forward to many more photos.
Tell everyone they're happy (not 'fat & happy'
for long!), and they'll be living the rest of
their lives with a great young couple who will
bring them so much happiness!
We also want to continue making donations to Norcal
Aussie Rescue every year as a special thanks for your
changing our lives.
