Norman, the Goofy Shepherd/Husky Puppy That Makes Everyone Laugh (part 3)

“I fell in love with his ears and smile.

He was being fostered by a couple on the upper east side and we met up an adoption event at Petco.

We brought our dog Hannah with us to see how they would get along.

Norman rolled over and was submissive towards Hanna, so we thought it was a good match.”

 

Scout, the Labrador Retriever that brought joy to a family (part 7)

“After having four kids, with one already out the door, getting Scout is like having a new two year old.

She has added a new layer to our nuclear family.

We have met new people and made new friends through having Scout.

She has introduced us to an entire subculture.”

“The kids love to play with her, and they help with the walking when they can.

We also have given in to getting a dog walker sometimes because it takes the pressure off of us.

I can take the kids to activities like soccer or dance after school without worrying about running home to walk her.”

Samantha, the Pit Bull Terrier/Shitzu mix rescue, who was a very sick puppy (part 4)

“Samantha is gentle, playful and obedient.

Her only problematic quality is that she doesn’t eat.

I brought a bag filled with different brands of dog food we tried with no success and our veterinarian told us we had exhausted most of our options but that we should try Stella & Chewy’s or Fresh Pet.

We had success with Fresh Pet, and top it off with the dehydrated Stella & Chewy’s.”

“I didn’t have my wallet or any identification because we hadn’t planned on adopting a dog, yet.

My boyfriend agreed to adopt her and he used is identification and paid for her, but we agreed that she would be my responsibility.

At first she was so sick that people couldn’t understand why we chose her.

My father said she was so ugly because she was skin and bones and coughing constantly.

Once she recovered, he too fell in love with her.”

“I wanted to go to an animal shelter, ┬ájust to pet the dogs.

We went to the CACC (Center for animal Care and Control), where we saw Samantha and fell in love.

She was extremely underweight.

She was half her weight now and she had a bad case of Bordatella, but she was also so sweet and innocent.

She just needed medical attention and love.

When we took her for a walk she was eager to please us, as she

was completely obedient and already housebroken.

I knew after the walk that I wanted her.”

“I wanted a dog for years.

I used to cry because I wanted a dog so bad.

I was living in Croton-On-Hudson in a not dog friendly neighborhood and my boyfriend just moved to Manhattan.

Once we got an apartment and settled in together, it became possible for us to get a dog.

We knew we would get a dog down the road.”

Milo, the Pomsky (Pomeranian/Husky Mix), (part 6, she said)

“Milo has also made us more of a family.

We take walks together, look for dog parks together and have become social with other dog owners.

All in all, Milo has expanded our world.”

“initially, having Milo was difficult on our relationship because we had a tough time dividing the responsibilities.

We weren’t sure about who walked him or cleaned up his accidents more, but now being responsible for Milo has ultimately brought us together.

We have learned to work as a team.”

We divided the walks evenly and are on the same page about training him.”

“Since having Milo, I have been working and attending school at the same time and I was overwhelmed.

I began to cry, and Milo just knew that I needed comforting and lay down beside me.

Hie is usually closer with my boyfriend, but on this day he stayed by my side for several hours.

We fell asleep together and when I woke up, he was still by my side.”
