Lexi and Missy (3-19-17)

I adopted these two beautiful dogs in September from your rescue league and I just wanted to tell you I could not be happier with them. They mind very well and they are so lovable. They sleep on my bed with me every night and they are great companions.

Anyone thinking about getting a pet dog, I would highly recommend adopting an older dog and giving them a better life.

Angelina (2-28-17)

We adopted Angelina (now "Roo") about three months ago from C.A.R.L. and it was the best decision we have ever made. Although very shy at first, Roo has completely blossomed and come out of her shell. She loves running laps up and down the stairs, sleeping under our bed, accompanying us to brunch and/or happy hour at least once a week, snuggling on the couch, running on the beach, and wagging her tail.

She is now housebroken, can sit on command, is crate trained, has learned to love most other dogs (especially big ones), is good with kids, is great on a leash, warms up well to most people, and is just all around a sweetheart! I have even been fortunate to take her to work with me a few times a week where she makes everyone smile and distracts us just enough to increase office morale.

She is loved by everyone she meets, and is incredibly spoiled at home. She loves to greet us with squeals of excitement and follow us around the house all night. She has become such a big part of our family in such a small time, and we have you to thank! I have attached a few pictures of her in her new life - we could not be more grateful for your hard work!!

Magic (2-20-17)

I tried to get a decent picture of Magic, but every time I try he walks away. He really hates the flash.

This is how we woke up today!

KP (1-21-17)


We just got back from a walk πŸ™‚ and I was feeling bad I hadn't emailed. He's doing great! He's been super sweet which I knew he would be :):) we gave him a bath when we got done with the trip which he took super well. He even let me blow dry him which was unexpected!

I'm gonna try and start from the beginning.

He seemed to remember my mom's house and my mom said he seemed super attached to me there, perked up when he heard my voice from the other room. I'd like to imagine that he remembered me once he got there, but it could very well all be in my imagination. No matter what I am most happy that he's got his own forever home now. ** I was going to say that he's surrounded by people who love him but thankfully I think he had that all along :)**

He loves his dog bed. He was amazing on the trip. Didn't seem to want dry food which concerned me, but took all his meds very well, minimal whining and has changed that a bit since he's done traveling. We got home and he took his tour of his new home and loves to lay in the sun in the backyard but mostly to be in whatever room we are in. I took him to his new vet just for a meet and greet/checkup to decide if we liked that place. We got him a couple shots and a refill on his meds so we wouldn't be in danger of running out without realizing, got him registered here and a local tag etc. The vet complimented C.A.R.L. and said that you seemed to be very attentive to his needs from what she could see on the documentation that we gave them (thank you a million times). He seemed to be comfortable there and they have great reviews and seemed to be very knowledgeable, friendly and willing to work around his dog aggression which I appreciated.

We got to spend a whole week off work once we got to Texas while we were getting our house together and we experimented with how far he can walk etc. His vet said to walk him as much as he seems comfortable. He usually picks up a trot a couple times during the walk and we try and take him on varying routes just to give him some new experiences. We did walk him a little too far one night I think. He seemed fine on the walk, confident on his feet, no shakes, happy demeanor. The next day he was super shaky on the floor (we have a big area rug coming soon which should help him out on the hard floors in future) so we took that to mean that the previous night was too far and scaled back and have been bringing the distance up very slowly ever since.

He had one instance of chewing, but I think it's maybe because we went back to work after being with him 24/7. No other behavioral incidences though, so I think it's an isolated thing. I don't notice any whining or nervous behavior outside the one chewing incident. **Aside from the time he was laying next to me on the couch and I was eating fresh cooked salmon and didn't give in to his begging :P**

Speaking of, I've gotten him healthy treats (the ones that are good for joints, or his teeth) and he seems to love them (we only give them in moderation). I would love to spoil him with whatever we are eating but the vet said it's important to keep his weight where it's at which makes sense. I don't want to do anything to worsen his pain ever.

Suddenly I'm realizing that this email is forever long and I probably sound insane, but honestly he's my grandpa baby dog and I just love him to death and I want him to have everything that keeps him healthy and makes him happy lol. He's the best πŸ™‚

Thank You to everyone at C.A.R.L. I love what you do for animals and I can't even tell you how much I appreciate your love and care for him over the years. He walks so great on a leash, he adjusted immediately to being inside, he's so well behaved (even if that wasn't the case I'd love him just the same, but it certainly makes life easier).

Thank You!
- Shannon

Norman (1-8-17)

Here are a few pictures of Jake (fka Norman) and Daisy. At almost 15 years old, Daisy does a pretty good job of keeping up with Jake. The picture of Jake and me was taken in our motor home. Both dogs love to go traveling and they are very good.

Best wishes,
Barbara and Burt



I'll miss you too Aunty Terry.
