Congratulations to Buck, who was adopted by Debbie Mack Piccirilli. He is settling in very well so far into his new home...here he is on the right with his brother Mo and his new grammy! He slept all night in his new bed and loves attention....so far so good!
And special congratulations on Foster Mom Justine Winkler on her first foster! You did a great job!
Justine says, “I think I really lucked out with Buck. He was such a good boy. We are thankful that he found his new home. Debbie has already sent me a lot of photos and video of Buck. It was just meant to be. “
Buck was an abused puppy from North Philadelphia and has permanent damage to one of his eyes. He also came with health problems, and Justine nursed him back to health, and showed him what love is.
Romeo has turned the corner of his depression and anxiety. His foster Mom wears a little bell so he can follow her everywhere. He is even now playing with his many toys that generous people have sent to him. Of course, the bully sticks are still has favorite form of entertainment. He was such a sad and frightened little man for so long we were afraid he was never going to adjust to his blindness. But, we are happy to say that he has.
Thank you so much for following Romeo's story and helping us to give him the life he deserves.

Travel With Your Dog
Travel by Air:
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
An alternative to having travel with your dog is to board him. Your veterinarian may be able to recommend a good facility, or even a pet-sitter. Some larger pet clinics offer boarding, or have technicians that will pet-sit or board canine patients in their homes.
will ask for proof of vaccination for DHLPP, rabies and bordetella. The bordetella vaccine should be given within six months of boarding. This is for your dog's protection! If the kennel doesn't ask for proof of vaccination, you may want to consider another kennel. Ask about control as well. This can become an issue for dogs that suffer from fleabite allergies.
An arrangement that has worked well for us in the past is trading pet-sitting services with a friend or relative. My mom has four pomeranians that we take care of when they travel. In return, she watches our Bostons for us if we go out of town.
If you decide on a reciprocal arrangement, make sure the human relationship can stand it. It can be stressful caring for someone else's pet, and you want to make sure that one person isn't always the sitter without getting sitting services in return. Also, make sure the animals all get along and that your Boston is comfortable with the person that will be taking care of him. In most cities, you can find available for hire. If you are planning on hiring a pet sitter, ask your veterinarian, friends and family members for recommendations.
Congratulations to Jinx, who has found his forever home with his foster Mom Strausie Stevens. This beautiful senior boy was an owner surrender, and he will love the rest of his life surrounded by love with Strausie.
" Hello everyone,
Just want to let you know we have decided to keep our foster, Jinx. I know it doesn't set the best precedent, keeping your first foster, but I had tried to contact a couple of potential families with no success and then we lost our old man beagle. He was a bit stubborn and 13 and Jinx is a bit stubborn and 11 so he fills the hole left by Vance nicely. But truthfully, we are so lucky to have him and so thankful to Robin for saying he might "already be home". Thank you so much!"
Congratulations, Strausie, Jinx has a wonderful home with you and your husband. He really is cute, hard to resist that face.
