Phoebe is filling a spot in our family that we never knew was empty. She is such an angel, and we are more and more in love with her everyday! She likes to relax with us when we’re having a quiet night in and she loves to explore the woods and other trails when we are out and about, which fortunately is quite often here in Gander.

Suli is growing up to be exactly the dog we wanted: happy, good natured and a wonderful companion. He always seems to be having the time of his life, no matter what he is doing – so long as it’s with his people. We are constantly amazed at how quickly he learns and adapts to new things – especially when it is fun!
We wanted to share this photo of Suli playing ball at the neighbourhood park.

Rip crossed the rainbow bridge before his time. He was a wonderful dog and we couldn’t have asked for a better companion. He maintained the same qualities of interactive engagement that you observed when he was a little puppy. We’re so glad he was ours, even if his time with us wasn’t as long as we’d hoped. He lived his fullest, best life right up until the end.
Ozzie did great at the groomer’s.He is such a good boy and so smart.
We are amazed at how well Mollie has adapted to so many changes in the short month since she came to live with us. Just five days ago we returned from the cottage in Pomquet to city life in Bedford and Mollie has adapted wonderfully.
She has a favorite spot in our second floor apartment where she can look out and keep track of activities in the neighborhood. She walks beautifully with her leash and, as you can imagine, she has received many compliments on her first class behaviour whenever we take her out. She is so entertaining and loving.
You have given us a very special gift, Kathryn. Thank you for making this all possible.
Hugs to you,
Marlene and Ron and Mollie
Therapy Dogs bring so much joy and love to people who are no longer able to have pets in their lives. This is why I love what we do so much. It means the world to the patients and their families. We share stories about us and they have stories to share about them.
Keira Rose has the perfect personality/disposition for Therapy Dog work. She seems to just go in, assess the situation and do what needs to be done for each patient. She cuddles on beds with some, on couches with some, and sits with some. It is remarkable to watch the transformation of people when they get a visit from her; very rewarding for all involved.
This week marks Phinny’s fifth birthday. He is an absolute joy and such an important part of our family.
Here is a recent picture of him walking on the trail. He lives for his twice daily walks and there is often ball throwing involved for added fun.
