Bostons with Special Stuffed Animals

A number of members have reported that their Bostons have special stuffed animal babies that they use for comfort, much like a human baby with its favorite pacifier.  Below are some of the photos of these Boston babies with their babies.

Marlene also reports that “My 11 year old Boston Maggie Mae has always suckled on a duck worthy stuffed toy. She has always been very nervous and her "binkie" is the only thing that seems to calm her. 

She will run around the house with it in her mouth looking for the perfect place to lay with it. It's actually very cute!”

Does your BT have a special toy?

Casey is Adopted


Congratulations to Casey, who has found her forever home with Regina Young.  We know that Regina will definitely spoil this darling girl!  Regina offered to give love to a senior girl in need, who will be her baby.

And many thanks to foster Mom Linda Vermeylen who loved her until the perfect home was found!

Non Toxic Weed Killer for Your Yard

Make sure to share this on your own page for future reference and to help inform and protect others. =^..^=

1/2 gallon of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 c table salt
1/2 tsp Dawn liquid dish soap

Mix above ingredients in a spray bottle.
Spray weeds thoroughly.

1/2 gallon for around $6.40
Works better than Round Up - kills weeds on 1st application.

The Dawn dish soap strips the weed of its protective oils so the vinegar can work with deadly force. Safe for use in yards used by children and pets!! 

Thank you Carolyn, Kamp Kanine, for the recipe

Note from Jeanne:  I use distilled vinegar in place of cider vinegar.

Patti Maddamma

New Foster Madden





Say Hello to new foster Madden!    She was pulled from a shelter in Toms River NJ,  where she arrived due to no fault of her own.  She is a real sweetheart, full of love for everyone.  She will be fostered by Bethany Vaughan in New York City.  Thank you so much Bethany for opening your heart and home to this beautiful girl!  Madden gets along with other dogs and children and enjoys car rides and walks.  She loves to play.
And thanks to Stacie Kyle for pulling her from the shelter and bringing her to Ellen Thelin in NJ for transport.  Here are Stacie and Ellen with Maddie.  Stacie notes,  “What a pleasure it was to help that beautiful girl. One eyelash is white and the other one black, it made her even more stellar looking :)”


And special thanks to Andrew Davison, 3, for helping out on his first Boston transport!

Former Foster, Ellie ( formerly Jocky)

Laura Carey shares this picture of her pup.  "Former foster Jocky (now Ellie) enjoying a lazy, sunny, morning on the former cat hammock (now dog hammock)"

Fena and Ori Love the New Bed

I know I posted before but both Fena AND Ori love the bed that was given to Fee by a generous donor! They are often found snuggling together on it! thank you!

And thank you, Vicki, for sharing your home with foster pups.

New Foster Obie

My first foster has arrived! Obie seems to be comfortable here. He has already found the toy box and managed to try out every toy and bone. He has met my dog briefly and they seem to be getting along well so far. I am amazed that he has so much energy, I wouldn't think that he is 9 except for the milkiness in his eyes. I look forward to getting to know him more in the following days.


-- Courtney McDermott


Congrats Courtney! Thank you for sharing the love and for taking care of him!

Happy Spring from Flo

Flo 2013
Oh my sweet Flo was in such sorry shape when we got her last summer.
This picture of her really warms my heart.
She has always loved the sunshine! 
Jerrilyn Walter

This is great for blind pups who have a heightened sense of smell, like sweet Flo!

And here is Flo being hugged by her foster Mom Jerrilyn!

New Foster Junior




We called Foster Mom Linda Vermeylen at 7:45am Saturday morning because we had gotten an unexpected last minute call from Laura at No More Tears Puppymill Rescue. Laura had gone to pick up a group of dogs the miller was "finished with" and there was a surprise Boston in the group! We had to act FAST and Linda said - I'll take him. Huge thanks to Linda and huge welcome to Junior. What a handsome and lucky boy he is!
Junior is a puppy mill boy.  Linda says that he was perfect in the car on the way home. She continues. “ It was interesting to watch him explore the many things he probably never seen before.  He laid in the crate most of the day and would not eat or drink anything.  He was clueless as to what a treat was and wouldn't take one.  Today, all by himself, he mastered the doggy door and is loving all the attention he is getting and giving kisses and wagging his tail.  I told him that he has no idea how his life is going to change from this day forward!”
Linda, all his days will be filled with sunshine from here on . . .bless you and yours for opening your heart and home!

New Fosters Junior, Tuxy, and Madden

Meet new foster Madden. She is 6 years old and quite the sweetheart! She will be settling in her foster home over the next few weeks 

Please meet new foster Daisy. Keep Daisy in your thoughts. She is a senior girl and has quite a few tumors that need checked out. We will keep you updated over the next few weeks.

Please meet Tuxy girl. This little lady is 1 year old. She's settling nicely into her foster home, we will keep you updated!

Easy Room Divider

Its inexpensive, long lasting, and works well when needed. My husband put this up in our home and since has helped many install it in their homes as well. Local Lowes and Home Depot stores sell a gliding track on ball bearings. One for the top and one for the bottom and then a simple screen door can be attached to slide back and forth. It separates pets that are still introducing, recovering from surgery or don't like each other. We also attach a grate to the bottom screen so they can't destroy the screen. They see, hear but stay separated and safe. When you don't need it simply glide it open and leave it, it's always there when needed. See our photo album under Door/Gate/Glider System
Just an FYI in case anyone needs a plan to divide!
Have a great day!
Maria Pastusz
