“She apologized and swore she would find us a dog.

That Thursday she called and said, she was able to put us at the top of the list for Twiggy, with one caveat-we had to be on their behavioral therapist’s reality show.

We went to Broadway Barks and were filmed admiring Twiggy, even though we had adopted her the previous week.

Since that time, I have fallen in love with her and have a hard time being apart from her.

I took her to work with me for about a year and a half, but have now semi-retired and work from home.

I need to go out on appointments sometimes and we both get separation anxiety.”

“The first year of his life was difficult.

He was sick with pneumonia.  He was indoors for 5 months, so that stunted our ability to socialize him for a while.

At first Nikki didn’t know what to do with puppy Winston.  She looked at me as if to say, what did you do?

The first year, Nikki was intent on being an only child.

Eventually Winston wore her down and now they are the best of friends.”

“We rushed him to the Blue Pearl Animal Hospital.

It turned out that he had eaten rat poison.

We got there just in time, because he was hemorrhaging internally.

I thought I was going to lose him because he had bled out too much.

The vets said he had a 50/50 chance of surviving.

I prayed and prayed.

He made it..”

“We got Preston as a result of a sad event.

We’ve always had Vizsla’s and Preston is our third.

Our first Vizsla, Lucas died at 15 years old, and we got a puppy soon after, called Theo.

We were on vacation and Theo was hit by a car at 20 months and died instantly.

We were devastated and a breeder friend of ours called and said he had a male Vizsla that was a six month old failed show dog that needed a home.”

“They had a photo of a group of dogs and we emailed right away and wrote that we would be available to foster any of them.

We received an email straight back saying, please come in and pick up a dog.

We went to the Social Tees office and they said, hi, here’s Tina and her sister, Tuleh.

We haven’t split them up yet, so would you mind taking them both?”
