“We took him to our regular veterinarian and he needed to be crated for 3 months and we gave him different meds around the clock.  That was a difficult time.

When Diego comes back from his walks he runs in and tears around the apartment, really happy to be home–here.”

“When we got to our apartment, his new home, the first thing he did was pee in the bedroom.

He was never trained to walk on a leash and he was just let out in the backyard to do his business.

He still has irrational fear sometimes on our walks, but he is the least aggressive dog you will meet.”

“It was my wife’s idea to get Diego.

My sister was very ill and before she went into hospice care, she asked us to adopt him.

My wife had fallen in love with him when we visited previously, so she wanted to adopt him when my sister asked.

At first I told my sister, no.

It was an expense we couldn’t afford and we had just lost our last dog, Winnie.”

“I had a sick dog that required care around the clock and a newly adopted scared cat.

It all worked out and Kookla, the cat and Diego, the dog love each other.  Kookla kisses Diego when he comes back from his walks.

When I see Diego running around and so happy, after having been so sick, I get tremendous joy.”

“Then we took him to Gotham Vet, and the vet suspected that he injured his neck,

it was awful because he was in so much pain that I was beside myself.”

“We can’t leave anything out on the counter because Milo gets into everything.  He really loves the paper in my purse.

The other day he got my passport and I caught him chewing the edges.

He loves money, too.  I’ve got a $10.00 bill that he chewed a hole in.

He likes anything he can find and chew.

He is also fond of eyeglasses and shoes.  We remind our houseguests to hide their shoes and other personal belongings for their own protection.”

“We have lived near Central Park for almost a decade and we never really saw it before Mabel.

she has guided us to different corners of the park, and we have explored areas that are new and exciting.

She is teaching us to see the world through her curious and soulful eyes.

Mabel has changed our lives for the better.

She has brought so much laughter into our daily life and gives us a purpose.

In the morning, when we wake up, she lies between us, and just her presence makes us happy.

She makes a happy sound, that my husband wants to record and use as his phone ring.

It’s a joyful way to start the day.”
