Update: Bella

Bella running in the water.

Hello there, I thought I would send you a little update on the dog I adopted almost 1 1/2 years ago. She was from the group of puppies named after candy and was known as “Skittles,” the lone girl in the group of boy pups.

She has grown into the most wonderful, gentle, loving, social dog who has snuck her way into the hearts of everyone she has met.

Update: Tyra

Hello Daryl and Wendy!

Gosh, not a November goes by that I don't think of you both and silently extend my gratitude to you both for uniting us with Miss Tyra.

She remains to be one of the lights of our lives and I can barely believe that she is turning 4. Time really does 'fly'.

Happily, I have no medical emergencies, traumas or mishaps to tell you about, only gushing, glowing reviews of our wonder dog!

He seems to enjoy being cozy in his new bed. He sleeps A LOT. And in the hours I have sat in his room with him, he curls up, very relaxed and even begins to snore...quite loudly.....such a cutie :)
