I adopted my human in May 2004 when the vet says I was just under 4 months old. I was sick from living on the street but my human made sure I got all better. I love her very much and she calls me her K9 soulmate - not sure what that is but I think it means she loves me as well. I have an older brother called Frodo and I love him even though he has slowed down a bit.View Profile
I was rescued from a horrible first home by my forever human who tells us her name is Mum. She says I am a clown - I think that means I like to make people happy. For example I love to lie full on my back with all four paws up in the air, spin my tail in a circle and put on a big grin - it gets a belly rub everytime and makes people happy at the same time! I'm 13 now so I have slowed down a bit but I still love to play with my best buddy, Angel. And I really love Mum too and food - Love food!!!View Profile
Gessie was my 3rd pup. I got her after our dog Julien died. Gessie had skin allergies but it never spoiled her mood. She was the gentlest, happiest dog and we loved her to bits. She was 14 when my late husband died and after that she pined for almost a year. She had a skin cancer after all her allergies and she passed away quietly in November 2010.View Profile
Gemma was the first dog we adopted when we settled back in New Zealand. We got her when she was 3 months old. At her Dog Watch foster home, she trotted up to us and sat down on my late husband's foot, as if to say - You'll do! She was always Daddy's girl and used to go everywhere with him. She was so well-behaved I even managed to get her into the hospital where Leon was recuperating from cardiac seizure. She was literally our Gem and when she had to be assisted to give up the struggle against spinal cancer, a part of us died too.View Profile
Julien was a precious staffy/whippet cross we rescued after he was found abandoned and beaten. He gave us and our first precious pup, Gemma, so much love it was amazing. He loved anyone who would love him back and was fearlessly social with other dogs, regardless of size - and he was never attacked. He was just too sweet. We lost him to cancer when he was just 4 years old(the beating he had taken as a pup caused cancerous tumours all through his poor little body). Dog Watch, a dog rescue organisation in Christchurch where we were living, made us take our next rescue, Gessie, the same day Julien passed away - urgent they said - she certainly helped as we grieved for Julien. Kudos to Dog Watch for all they do. (Please read Julien's life story on my blog writingzme.wordpress.com - A Dog's Tail -).View Profile
