Happy Tails

Ezme (now called Stella)

Amy Gowertz - Monday, November 23, 2009
"Ezme", "Stella", "Estelle", "McScruff", "StellaBella".....
Thank you so much for bringing Stella into our lives!
She loves chewing tags, playing the sock game & cuddling with her sister Lola (a 2 year old chihuahua)
Stella follows us everywhere and is always curious to learn what we are doing!
She earned all her gold stars in her "mutts and manners" class and never seizes to amaze us!
We realize she has the determination to do anything (like carry binoculars to her bed)
She is always proud of her discoveries and doesn't destroy property that isn't hers!
My husband, Lola and myself cannot imagine life without her:)
Our furkids mean the world to us!
Thank you Amy!
Stella and Lola want me to remind you all to donate to Little Mutts Rescue!
We can't forget about the little mutts continually being rescued by Amy and her crew!
They need our help by donating our time and or supplies! Whatever you can do to help.

Blackie (now called Zoe)

Amy Gowertz - Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Hi Amy,

After a rocky start, Zoe has now settled in nicely with our family. It was
apparent that she had to fend for herself for a while as she would fight
our other dog for food, but that did not last for long. Zoe is a delightful
little dog, full of energy and always happy to see everyone in the morning.
Zoe really enjoys her walks and is very popular at our son's school,
eagerly looking for Jake and happy to accept love and affection from all
the other school kids. Zoe has appropriated the dog toys for herself and
loves to have them thrown so that she can retrieve them and return them for
another throw. She and Murry, our other dog, play well together now. Even
Mojo, our cat, has gotten used to the idea of Zoe in the house. Zoe is an
intelligent little dog and does not have a propensity to run off if she
gets out of the house on her own. Zoe had a cold when we adopted her and
her personality really developed as her health improved. The next major
event in her life was a spaying but she came through with flying colours
and the care that we received from the vet was great. It seems that all our
animals love the softest materials that they can find to lay on, so we
bought dog beds to control the number of blankets on the furniture. Zoe is
a great snuggler and loves to stretch out while she is sleeping. She is now
used to her new name. Zoe also loves to be taken whenever we go outside or
in the vehicle and imagines herself to be in control as her favourite spot
in the vehicle is actually on the lap of the driver. We discourage her from
riding there, but she can be very determined and quick to seize an opening
allowing her access to the steering wheel. With Autumn came an opportunity
to play with leaves blowing in the wind. She is great fun to watch and when
I have a leaf blower going I can create wind for her and then the game is
really on! The few days of snow that we have had were a new experience for
her, as were the cold temperatures. She is definitely used to sun and
warmth. Zoe has found a great home with us and we have a great dog that is
a welcome and treasured addition to our home. Thank you so much for
bringing us together!

Hi Amy,
Here's a Happy Tails story for you......
I just wanted to send you a picture of little Colby in his new Calgary home. He's a perfect little guy in every way; I can't imagine why anyone would've given him up; he's polite, affectionate, happy, and completely house-trained (he's never even had one accident since the moment he arrived)! We adore him, and I think he's pretty happy with us too....I can tell by the "happy dance" he does whenever we come in the door - It's the CUTEST thing! Since he came from L.A., he's not THAT impressed with the Calgary weather, but he puts his new coat on like a little trooper, and once we get to the off-leash....he forgets all about it. He's very loved - so THANK-YOU "Little Mutts Rescue" - He's very loved.
See you soon,


Carlisle (now called Harry)

Amy Gowertz - Thursday, October 01, 2009
Hi just wanted to let you know that Carlisle – now called Harry is doing great!  He has fit in really well with our family.  Our kids love taking him for walks with their friends.  He loves going to the bus stop and to school with our two girls in the morning, joining in with the school running club and hanging out at home.  For a terrier he plays a mean game of fetch!  Attached are some photos.  He is quite a little character and we’re sure glad we found each other.

I just wanted to drop you a note that Chico is doing just fine and he is adjusting pretty well here, in his new home.
We absolutely adore Chico and he is such a joy to have around. We find ourselves rushing home from work just so we can spend as much time together with Chico.
Since the weather is still really nice, walks are a must for Chico, he absolutely loves them! He walks with his head up high and is so proud walking with his new “Mom and Dad”. We also discovered that Chico loves to shop, especially when it’s a dog friendly store! As you see in the photos, he is wearing a brand new bomber jacket (which he loves to wear on cooler days) and he doesn’t even mind trying things on…as long as it’s for him.
Chico, Bruno and I are enrolled in a “Let’s Go!” obedience course starting in September. Of course Chico is very well behaved…it’s more for us!
Thanks again for bringing to our home such a bundle of joy!

Things with Red have gone very well! He has settled into a happy, well behaved little guy and has fit right in to our little family. He loves to go for walks and is getting really great on the leash! He has seen the vet and was a total gentleman, which we were thrilled about. We will be working on his manners, but all in all, he's just happy to around people.

Thank you for answering as many questions as possible and for the services of Little Mutts. Good luck with your future mutts!

We're thrilled to have Red as a part of our family!

Mister (now called Finnegan)

Amy Gowertz - Monday, August 24, 2009
Here are some pictures Trever took this morning of Finnegan.  He and Cinder took us for a nice long walk before work this morning, and he was pretty mellow all day.  He even managed to win over the cleaning lady!
