Update on Cooper

 Cooper and Heather

Happy One Year Anniversary, COOPER! It's been one year that Cooper moved in with us (July 21). He is living large too! Come 9pm he expects his treats! We've got his allergies under control with allergy shots (every 21 days); occasional small flare-ups affecting his paws. He's learned 'stay', 'back', 'down', 'go lay down' (when we eat so he no longer begs), 'go pee-pee', 'beep-beep' (when he's underfoot), 'peek-a-boo bankie'. He has become more playful with toys too and gotten rather frisky; not sure he was played with much in his early years. He plays hide-n-seek pretty good too! Back in June he's had the cyst on his chest removed, along with a cyst in his mouth which was causing his awful breath; teeth cleaned; and a really good nail clipping while he was under anesthesia during his 'out-patient' surgery. He does alot of sun-bathing on both the front and back porch. He has never roamed off the property; he's sticking around for good! He's a girls' dog that for sure! I am so glad to have found him.

Jackson Goes to His Forever Home

Jackson and his forever mom Linda

Jackson wants to thank everyone for making it possible for him to find his new home! I think he and his new mom are going to be very happy. She recently lost her first Boston. I know Jackson will bring joy back into her life. Oh, he also wants to thank you for his dental work - it made a big difference in his life. Beth McFadden, as usual, was amazing and we thank her so much for all she did to help get him the right home.

Janice Boyer

And a special thank you to Janice from NEBTR for taking in this boy and loving him!

I just wanted to send out a reminder about this fundraiser NEBTR is trying. We have set up group space on Celebrity Cruises for May 5, 2013. This is a seven night cruise to Bermuda leaving out of Bayonne, NJ.

All pricing information is in the attached document, and the deposit is $250 per person ($500 per stateroom) which will be due upon booking. Final payment is not due until Feburary 19, 2013.

What you get: An amazing vacation on a wonderful cruise line, and you get to help NEBTR raise some much needed funds! There have also been new ammenities added to our group, provided we get the qualifying number of staterooms booked. These are:
                             20% off any Signature treatment at the Aqua Spa

What NEBTR gets: Celebrity Cruise Lines will make a donation to NEBTR of up to $100 for every stateroom we have booked into our group.

If you have any questions about this fundraiser, the cruise line, the island of Bermuda, or how you can help, please get in touch! The more promotion we have with this fundraiser, the better, so please print the flyer and post around your towns, jobs, dog friendly businesses, send to your email contacts, etc. If you're hosting at table for NEBTR at another fundraiser, please print a few out to have on hand at those events.

Can someone please post this again to the NEBTR facebook page so we can drum up more interest? Feel free to post to your personal Facebook pages as well - the more interest we get for this, the better. Our goal is to get all 16 of our staterooms booked full and raise that money for NEBTR, so the more promotion, the better! Help us spread the word!

Have a great holiday!

Update on Flo

Flo's sense of smell helped her find the treat on the chair!
The 2nd pic is Flo rolling in the grass : )
You can just hear her now...I'm free! I'm free! Someone loves me!

Flo is feeling great! And she loves the company of foster brother Chester!  She is such a trooper this girl Flo!
She knows the path to the front door as soon as I put her harness on. Once her feet hit the street, she just cruises right along.

Her appetite is very healthy and she is just very independent, but I guess that comes from life on the streets!
Her coat has improved SOOO much! She gets a homecooked meal every night with vitamins and cod liver oil added.  I give her two long walks a day and the rest of the time, she snoozes!

Marriage or Relationship

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him
And never say it's not quite as good as his mother's

Then adopt a dog.

If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour,
For as long and wherever you want  ...

Then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote,
Doesn't care about football,
And can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies

..then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to
Warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores

..then adopt a dog !

If you want someone who never criticizes what you do,
Doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old,
Who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to,
And loves You unconditionally, perpetually ...

 ..then adopt a dog.

On the other hand,
If you want someone
Who will never come when you call,
Ignores you totally when you come home,
Leaves hair all over the place,
Walks all over you,
Runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep,
And acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness then...

 ...adopt a cat!

You thought I was gonna say... Marry a man, didn't you?

Congratulations and Thanks, Katherine and Hardy

Katherine DeCotiis and Hardy Wiedemann are celebrating their marriage on September 23.  NEBTR wants to wish them all their love and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together, for them and for Tuna, their Boston Terrier. 

Evidencing their devotion to Boston Terrier Rescue, the couple will place the above card on all their wedding tables.  What a wonderful way to recognize NEBTR!  And I know that Tuna very much approves of this too!

That is the most selfless wedding gift! What an awesome idea. You two have such a blessed life ahead of you!

Where' the dessert?

So what's for dessert when I finish this course?
