Sofi & fur siblings

Sofi
Sofi

Hey Everyone, Sofi here. I am doing great. Here is a picture of me with my

fur sister, Emmi (also from UYR) and fur brother, Ernie at Halloween. Crazy

Mom likes to dress us. Well, what can I say, I am loving life, and Mom and

Dad love me. During the day I play in the backyard or sit on a chair

looking out the window. At night, I sleep on my own pillow at the head of

the bed. I never thought I could be so spoiled.

My journey started with a broken front leg and after having a fixator on it

for many months, the leg never mended. I had my leg removed, and honestly,

what a relief. I run just as good as any four legged friend, and I don't

have the fixator on my leg any more. I want to thank UYR and Foster Mom,

Jenn, for taking such good care of me and finding me a home where I am loved.

Press Bulletin:

For immediate release to News wires and all interested parties

From the Office of the Gentleman-In-Waiting (GIW) Regarding:

Her Serene Highness (HSH) Princess Sydney,

And

His Exalted Highness (HEH) Prince Gus.

Their Highnesses would like to inform their subjects and all interested citizens that the court welcomes the arrival of her Serene Highness Princess Sydney to the kingdom. Her Serene Highness, a direct descendant of the famous Bard from Stratford-Upon-Avon, would like her subjects to know that she now claims the lands known as Sussex-Upon-Backyard as her own and for her diversion and pleasure. Previous occasional users of her lands (squirrels, a coterie of various birds, lizards, and other assorted creatures) should know that Her tolerance for their presence is limited and should they abuse their privileges Her Serene Highness will not hesitate to inform them that they have overstated their welcome.

Being of sound mind and good health the Princess would like her subjects to know that presently she is settling into what she calls a “satisfactory” daily routine with final judgment to be rendered at a future date. Her breakfast consist of a variety of nutritious comestibles followed by a multi-vitamin. This is followed by a walk around the surrounding estates and a period of rest which last approximately until the noon hour after which Her Highness conducts an inspection of her lands to ensure their proper care and evict any lingering intruders such as those previously mentioned. (HSH conducts these inspections several times during the day as part of her royal duties). As the day progresses, Her Serene Highness may enjoy and occasional moment of play or a restful restorative nap that re-energizes her for the remaining duties of her daily schedule.

As dinner time arrives HSH will partake of a nutritious meal, although she will often demand to sample the less flavorful samplings that her subjects may be consuming at their dinner table. The evening continues with another walk-about of surrounding lands and a return to her chambers to commiserate about the discharge of her responsibilities. After a few hours of rest which includes a rubbing of the royal ears, back, and tummy by the Gentleman-In-Waiting HSH is ready for her final daily walk-about before retiring for the day.

His Exalted Highness Prince Gus would like everyone to know that he is closely watching HSH’s accommodations and routines to ensure that there is an equilibrium between His and Her duties. This is important ,according to the Prince ,in order to prevent any mis-perceptions by their subjects that there is an imbalance in the time that royal courtiers spent attending to each of their royal highnesses. The Prince expects to render a more substantive judgment at a future date. However, loyal subjects should not be overly concerned since His Highness knows that he is loved and cherished by all.

All questions regarding the welfare of either of their Highnesses should be submitted in writing to the court’s Gentleman-In-Waiting.

Wrigley and Ashley
Wrigley

Wrigley is doing great! We are so shocked how fast and well he adjusted here. The first few days of picking him up it was only me actually trying it out, since then he has let Josh pick him as well. He is great with everyone. We do notice if he is up high on the bed or couch with me and Josh walks into the room he gets a little frightened for a second or two but then be crawls over to Josh and gives kisses. He is getting better with that though.

He absolutely loves to go on walks, so we walk them atleast 3 times a day. He hangs out all day with Josh, Kuma and the cats and just relaxes in his nice comfy bed. He has gotten into a cute habit of waking up 15 minutes or so before the alarm goes off to cuddle in the bed. :) It is very cute.

We are so happy with him and we can tell Kuma is as well..she is always on cloud 9 these days.

Thanks again!

Ashley & Josh. xo

Chloe, formerly known as Lucy
Lucy

Hi everyone! My name used to be Lucy but I didn't know my name so my new family named me Chloe. I’m doing very well at my new home! I have an older but much larger sister named Macey. She loves me and I love playing with her! She is so much fun to chase around the house and yard. I actually think we are the same size even though I weigh 11 pounds and she weighs 100 pounds.

I'm so happy with my new family! I'm getting all the love and attention I deserve. The kids love to play with me and carry me around. My dad sleeps on the couch with me and puts me in his jacket while we are playing on the computer. I think I might be getting a little spoiled! I follow my mom everywhere she goes. She loves taking me on walks several times a day and let's me get lots of exercise! I am finally at home with a family that loves me. Life doesn't get much better than this!

Monty and new parents

Monty

Monty (now Bailey :) is a blessing in our lives! He is the most loving, well-adjusted, spunky little puppy. We couldn't have asked for a better dog. He loves being outside and does a little dance every time his leash comes out. The only thing that can MAYBE rival a walk is food! He loves to eat and is not picky at all, dry food makes him happy as can be.

Every morning he sleeps until we wake up, but as soon as we stir, his little teddy-bear face pops up and he stretches his arms out and crawls over for a cuddle. He loves cuddles in the morning before we get out of bed and at night before we go to sleep. And when you pick him up, he's like butter in your arms. When he's not sleeping or cuddling, he's playing with his squeaky toys! He loves to run after them when we throw them and then secure them by racing to his bed with the toy in his mouth.

He loves his golden retreiver brother, Cody, and meeting other dogs on all of our daily walks. Everyone in the neighborhood knows his name! And any visitor to our home is greated with a dance and and a doggie hug as he stretches his litte furry arms up their legs. Everyone thinks he is so cute - we have a lot more visitors these days!

When we first got him, he was constantly darting out the door and running away. It was very scary and we were so nervous we were going to lose him that way. But he has calmed down big time. We got a doggy-gate at the top of the stairs and I am working on training him to sit and stay at the door every time we go out. He must wait until I step outside and tell him he can go. This is helping him learn some "door manners" so we can keep him safe! And he is so smart, he's picking it up fast. He can also sit, stay, lay down, come and get down on command.

Adopting Bailey from United Yorkie Rescue was the best decision we ever made. I don't think we could have found a better dog in the whole wide world, we love our little man - thank you!

Murphy, Morgan, Frankie
Murphy

Here are some pictures of the boys, all three of them, Murphy, Frankie, and Morgan. They have become best buddies and race around the back yard like maniacs. Morgan is very careful not to be too rough with the little ones, but they are both pretty scrappy little guys. They let us know if someone is coming near their house or yard and are ready to tear them limb from limb.

We dearly love our boys, and are so happy that we have all three. They went to our vet to be introduced and give him their papers. Murphy and Frankie are going to be groomed on Sep. 13.

Will give you an update in the fall. Let us hear from you from time to time.

Chico and his new family
Chico

Hi Auntie Jenn, Tito here......I am sure you would be glad to know that I’ve been eating all my veggies, I love green beans, carrots and apples, but then again I’ve always had a very healthy appetite.

I am getting used to my new neighborhood, I love going for long walks and exploring my new hood. There’s lots to see and meet. So far in the first few weeks I’ve been here

I’ve been able to swim in the pool and chase squirrel (don’t worry auntie I don’t hurt them, they are on the other side of the screen) it is so much fun trying to catch them.

I’ve also tried my best to be a good boy, but I’ve had some accidents in the house, nothing to worry about, I’m working on that and I am also working at not being a mean, dominant Boy I turned to when I’m under the bed.... I growl and nip at anyone that tries getting me out from there…don’t they understand that I’ve claimed all that space for me???... well anyway my parents are really very patient with me and w/ a little bit of apples I'm out of there....

Saludos from Coral Springs!!!

They have since adopted another little rescue named Satchmo who is part chihuahua and part doxy. Their 17 year old dog Scarlet is so greatful that Sarge has someone to play with.

Chloe's new mom and dad
Chloe

Chloe is a beautiful 3 1/2 y/o 7# yorkie who was surrendered by her owners who loved and spoiled her very much, but they felt that she would be happier in a home where she would receive more attention and not be left alone so much. Chloe is a little cuddle-bug and loves to give kisses.

Her new parents wanted to call her Mattie; they say that Mattie loves it when

visitors come over - she thinks they're there just to adore her! She has picked out her

favorite spot in the house to look out the window and watch the birds and

squirrels. She likes to go for car rides and knows when we are almost home. She

gets so excited! She also loves her walks, and going to the dog park where she greets everyone with a tail wag.

We are so happy to have Mattie in our lives. She fit right in to our daily

routine perfectly. Thank you for the opportunity to let her adopt us!

Mattie's new ForEver Mom & Dad

Nellie
Nellie

Nervous Nellie, Whoa Nellie…are just some of the “pet” names given to our Nellie, who has been ours since June (’09). Nellie is an interesting package…nervous, anxious, fearful, introverted, and the best thing that has happened to our family in a long while. Little by little she is exhibiting signs that, in time, she will trust us. There are the occasional licks, times when she is very anxious (i.e., storms, strangers) and actually wants to be picked up, plus those answer-to-our-prayer moments when she curls up in bed with us and just wants her tummy rubbed. Did we know what we were in for? At first, no. Now, we realize it will be a slow-going process but the journey has been filled with rewards and at the end our Nellie will be forever-happy to be a part of our family and she won’t be Nervous Nellie anymore.
