Happy Tails

Katie (now called Bella) and Ramona (now called Rhomie)

Amy Gowertz - Tuesday, January 12, 2010
I have attached photos of Katie (now Bella) and Ramona (now Rhomie) who we also adopted. The pair have falling in love with each other and are now very good little play mates! They both love to cuddle with the family and run outside in the backyard. They both are very affectionate dogs who have become very attached to us. We are so happy with our decision to bring both Bella and Rhomie into our family.
 
Thank you!

Brodie

Amy Gowertz - Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Brodie is a wonderful little dog, I really lucked out!

He has been a sweet companion, great happy personality, well trained and getting even better.

He lives with us on our acreage, and always stays close to home, is friends with the barn cats, and goes to my office, The Print Shoppe every day.

He loves to greet the customers, at home he very good with the grandkids.

I am so happy that we found each other, I think Brodie is very happy also.

Here are a few pics, he is so cute!

Reggie

Amy Gowertz - Monday, January 11, 2010
Heyyyyyyyyyyyy its Reggie!
I didn’t forget about you all; I have been very busy training my people at my ‘furever home’.  Although what training... they are so sweet, and I’m glad to have them for the rest of my life.  I can almost catch a Frisbee in the air, and I do several performances that has all of us in stitches, and them giving me homemade treats in return.  There is lots of laughter and hugs.
 Its winter right now... very different than where I came from... Pavement, California.  What? Isn’t that a place...? Pavement?  Well, it was no dog cookie next to where I am now.  The only thing that’s very unappealing to me now is snow.  Even though I have three new winter coats, and Doc Martins dog boots, me and snow don’t mix.  However, I live with two bigger dogs... and the snow doesn’t bother them so much, so I pretend to be immune to the cold, quickly do the Doo-doo, bark once or twice if they do, and then I race to be the first back inside.  Inside is so awesome! I have pillows, blankets, and my favourite is cuddling with my mom.  I love proving to my Mom that I can be brave with the snow, and she’s always telling me what a good boy I am.  I walk with my tail high and chest out, my confidence is back again! The other new activity we as a family share is tobogganing! It’s very fast going downhill, and I ride with me inside my Dads jacket.  With this I would almost say snow can be fun... almost.  We are an outdoorsy family, and Mom talks a lot about hiking, camping, and fishing and swimming! My brother and sister wag their tails at this, so I look forward to the summer a lot. The sun is warmer, and many more things for my nose to explore... ‘Fun in the sun’, that’s what Mom and Dad say. Oh yeah, and Santa Paws got my forwarding address! He filled my stocking full of new toys, and safe yummy treats to chew on.  I’m very busy with chewing on these right now!
Speaking of my Mom, she models the rules, boundaries, and limitations of the Dog Whisperer! Which creates an atmosphere of balance, we are all equal, we are all very happy, tales a’ wagging, and blissfully at peace.  My mom is so cool, she is always home; she loves to make the perfect dog cookies, and a special food side dish that goes with every meal.  With her cooking, I could just eat myself into food oblivion!  To me there is no such thing as too much food, however according to Mom, there is.
I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the efforts of the rescue team network, which began in California; I wouldn’t be here, eating the highest quality of food, surrounded with toys, brothers and sisters, and love.  Oh my Gosh, lots of love.  So my heartfelt tail wags to my first foster person that ensured that Pavement was a past to forget; to the rescue unit that put my life into the welcoming hands of new foster persons, and their help that got me united with my furever family.
I’ll keep in touch,
Furever yours, always wagg’n, your Reggie.


Lodi / Loki (now called Oliver)

Amy Gowertz - Friday, January 08, 2010
Hello,
 
Hope your holidays were good! Just wanted to let you know that Lodi is
still doing well (Though he has come to be known as Oliver in our house).
He is getting along well with Scout, and he is a lot of fun to have around
the house. We are working on learning sit and stay, though I am convinced
he knows the words, he is just stubborn! I have attached a few pictures
for you!

Salt (now called Abby)

Amy Gowertz - Thursday, January 07, 2010

Salt is now Abby. She is what I call Hyper Happy. Her tail is always wagging. She loves her sister Penny who is a rescue terrier mutt from the SPCA here in Red Deer. Abby loves the snow. She keeps asking to go out side so she can lick it and doesn't mind to have her paws clean out of all the ice. The best part is eating the little balls of ice that fall out. She has grown to a solid 20 pounds. We are about 95 percent house trained. She loves food. It's eat, then ask questions later. We just finished puppy school and failed. Part my fault; part her's. She would just rather play with the other puppies and lick all the people. So I think we will try this again later. She has been the best friend for Penny and they are inseparable. It gets really crazy around here sometimes. Stuffies don't last long, I think it's a race to see who chews them apart first.....
She just loves life.

Lola

Amy Gowertz - Monday, January 04, 2010
I think I could write you a book on how much we are loving Lola!!  She is amazingly smart and loving.  We are having so much fun with her and she is very good and willing to please.  My favorite time with her is taking her out to the barn to ride my horse.  She loves my horse and runs around the arena like a mad woman!  She also loves going for walks here at our local park and is really good off leash.  Her favorite toy is a tennis ball, she will play fetch for hours.  Lola comes everywhere with us an has had some camping trips and three trips to BC to visit our family this year. All of our family and friends love her too and she is the center of attention wherever we go!  Thank you Little Mutts for helping bring Lola into our lives!

Fluffy (now called Diego)

Thank you for bringing me home.
Merry Christmas and a very peaceful new year!
 
With all my love,

Buddy

Amy Gowertz - Wednesday, December 23, 2009
Hi Amy, we are very pleased with our Buddy!  He is a very loving little dog that we are thrilled to have.  Still working getting him completely house trained, but other than that he is very laid back, loving and just loves to play with our other dog.  He even takes on my daughters big dog when she comes to visit!  No fear in him.
 
I have attached the before and after pictures - he really is a cute pup!  Please thank the foster home for such good care of him.
 
Thanks so much for the service Little Mutts Rescue provide, I have recommended you to others already!
 
Have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year with all the little mutts you provide homes for.
 
Thanks again Amy!

Tank

Amy Gowertz - Monday, December 21, 2009
Hi Amy and Amber,
 
I just wanted to write you both and give you an update on Tank!
 
First of all thank you little mutts rescue for bringing Tank to use. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family.
 
We've had Tank now for 3 weeks and it seems like he has been with us forever, he is such a great fit with us and our lifestyle! Tank warmed up to us right away, even the day we got him home, he took to his little doggie bed without a problem and pretty much slept the whole night.  We realize then that our Tanker was an extremely smart dog, and house training has been a breeze, we didn't even train him, after a couple of times he just seemed to get it, he even ventured out there in minus 30!, Now he already sits at the back door and asks to go outside. It turned freezing cold just after we got Tank so it has only been this past week where he actually has been going outside for walks, but is doing fairly well on a leash, and has finally stopped trying to eat his harness, he just still gets cold and once and a while has to get carried home!
 
Tank is also a great work companion, I have taken him into my office on numerous occasions and he is definitely a great hit with everyone at work. He has been "requested" by some of my co workers to come in again before Christmas!
 
Bryan and I often joke that we have almost the perfect dog, all is really wants to do is sit on our laps and cuddle and is great at playing and the only thing he has destroyed is our entrance mat, who would have though he could do that from inside the kennel?
 
Thanks again little mutts and Amber for fostering Tank before we got him, he is awesome!
 
I'll remember to give another update in 6 months so you can see how much he has grown. He must have it a growth spurt as soon as we go him, we already had to loosen his collar and we keep saying, he's so big? What happened to the little puppy we got 3 weeks ago!
