Happy Tails

We're happy to say that out Boxer pup, Miley, was adopted by a very nice family we knew that fell in love with her the moment they met. It's nice to see a pup come out of a neglected state and gain confidence, and go on to a loving furever home. I do wish that she would have stopped and looked back as they were leaving. But no, she was so happy to prance to that waiting car with her new girl, that she forgot to say goodbye. That okay, though. I wish her all the best and can't wait to see her again. I know she'll remember me!

Now, for any of you that like animal stories with happy endings, we want to introduce you to our new friend,
Floyd (right). If you like, once a month Floyd the Dog will send a nice story to you to brighten your day. You can even submit stories if you like, and if yours is chosen, a donation will be made to a charity to benefit animals. So if you have a happy tail to share, hop on over to Floyd's place and tell him about it.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Miley's Progress Report

Wet. Wet. Wet. That's the long and short of it around here. The ground is spongey, the air is damp, and it's been drizzling rain for three days on top of the downpours we had last week. Even my hair is more frizzy than usual and won't stay put. Can't even dig a proper hole before it fills up with water. Maybe we'll have some sun this weekend...

On the brighter side, our Boxer is growing more beautiful every day. We finally settled on the name Miley (My Boy is a huge Hannah Montana fan, can you tell?). She is up to forty pounds now. Still skinny, I like my girls to have a little reserve on them, if you know what I mean. Don't worry, though. We'll fatten her up. Just takes a little more time to build up those muscles that had wasted away. So far she is great on a leash and has learned to sit on command. She's a quiet girl, too. Sweet and loving, with no rough-housing, which will make her a good pet for a family with kids. It's so funny to see her play bow, and wag her tail. She doesn't just wag her tail, she shakes her booty. Just cracks me up every time she does it!
