Re: Mucinous Adenocarcinoma

I can't offer any advice or helpful information... just wanted to send a hug.
I remember back when Copper became a part of your life... such a great story!
Keeping you both in my prayers.

Re: This very special place

I love this site too... So much laughter, tears, and sound advice over the years. I still check in frequently and try to respond when I can! For anyone who enjoys pictures of Britts popping up in their FB newsfeed, I like the group Love My Brittanys. But be warned... lots of adorable puppy pics! Ver...

Re: Goodbye sweet Kayla

Oh Cindy, I'm in tears reading this sad news. I know how very hard this must be for you both. My daughter and I got to meet Kayla at the ABR Picnic a few years back. What a sweetheart, and such a happy girl... As I recall, her little tail never stopped wagging! Sending hugs, and hoping you find peac...

Re: Maggie is Gone

Aww Brian, I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news about Maggie.
Very tough loss to bear... I know she was a special girl.
I seem to recall that she shared bloodlines with my old boy Rocket (and now Winnie).
Wishing you peace and comfort.

Re: Our New Rescue: Beamer

He was placed for adoption because he was so hyper and difficult. This just makes me laugh... When we rescued Jack, the owner told us not to give him "high-quality" food because he was hyper and it just made it worse. Yeah, right... Active, maybe, but hyper... no way. Jack is a born couch potato if...

All Four!!

So I guess we're getting better at dog introductions. All four dogs were together last night, and there was very little fuss... The boy dogs weren't very interested in the pup, and Winnie can't decide if she wants to play with her or mother her. It's interesting. http://i1375.photobucket.com/albums/...

Puppy Love

I have some happy news to share!! On Saturday my (younger) son and his girlfriend brought home a very sweet little girl that they found through ABR! Her new name is Hayley, and she is about 10 weeks old. I met her yesterday, and she is an absolute sweetheart. What a summer this has been! Our boys ar...

Re: Sleep well Monty..

I'm so very sorry, Mark. It's so easy to love a dog and so hard to let them go when the time comes.
Monty was a beautiful boy, and so lucky to have had such a great life with you and your family.
Thank you for sharing your pictures.
Hugs!

Re: Winnie Needs Social Skills! (Updated)

So what a difference a week has made...
We still have some work to do, but all three dogs are now fine together inside and outside.
Winnie and Ziggy have actually become nap buddies!

Winnie Needs Social Skills!

So, I need some advice…My son brought Ziggy, his new ABR rescue buddy over to meet Jack and Winnie twice this week, and it’s clear that Miss Winnie needs to develop some social skills. First off, Ziggy is an absolute sweetheart! Very laid-back and friendly… just a happy dog. Jack is fine with him, a...

Introducing...

Ziggy!! He's not exactly mine, but he just became a part of our family Brittany circle! My son and his girlfriend applied for an ABR dog a few weeks ago, but that one had already been spoken for. Then yesterday, they got a call from our ABR State Coordinator about a dog at a shelter in VA... So off ...

Re: New Puppy

Such a sweet baby!! We just made it through our pup's first year... Like you, we hadn't had a puppy for a long time. Honestly I'd forgotten a lot about it, and most of what I did remember were things like pee on the carpet and chewed up shoes! But the one thing that you never forget is that amazing ...

Winnie celebrated her 1st birthday last week... Can't believe how quickly the time has flown by!
