Hi Donna and Samantha,
Well, we made it through our first week with relatively few adjustment problems from anyone! Today was an exciting day because it was Jackson's first hike in the woods. He and Maggie just ran and ran and RAN! He wasn't sure what to make of her swimming in the pond, but he went in up to his chest and seemed very curious..I'm sure he will come to love it as much as she does. We have been working with him to stop pulling on the leash. and he seems to be getting the hang of it, except when he sees or hears another dog. He is officially licensed in Vernon, as of this morning and I think I mentioned, he has is well-puppy check up on Wed. (Donna, I forget what the Doxy medication is for).
He is just a silly puppy that makes us laugh all the time. Maggie has really taken a liking to him...I can tell because she lets him sleep next to her by my bed...quite an honor!
So, I thought I would give you an update and attach some photos. I think he's grown an inch this week. You can see he's the exact same height as Maggie.
Hope all is well. I will keep you posted and send more photos.
Where do I even start. Lisa has been a crucial member of our team since the beginning. Started out as our staff nursemaid, fostering pregnant mommies and birthing multiple litters of puppies. She quickly evolved into an essential part of the rescue's core. She is involved in various local rescue efforts. Our local expert in tracking, trapping and capturing lost, scared or escaped dogs. A true advocate for local dogs and a true rescue warrior. We would not be where we are without Lisa!!!
Linda adopted her dog Mickey from our rescue many years ago. After learning about our rescue efforts she wanted to help. She is a long time volunteer with The Last Resort. Linda is our fundraising coordinator and works very hard orchestrating fundraising events that enable us to continue saving more lives. Linda loves to create new and different fundraising ideas. She prefers to get hands on with the dogs and loves the events where our adoptable dogs can attend, helping them get the much needed exposure they need to find their forever homes.
