October 3/13: Lexi was adopted!!!!

Meet Lexi, a lovely 5 year old Landseer who arrived in our care on September 15 .

This sweet girl has not had the best life, but things are about to get a whole lot better for her now. 

Lexi has now been vaccinated, spayed, cleaned up and is feeling much better already. She is ready to join her new family!

Adopter Update - Tycho loves to swim!

Woof Allison,

It's me Tycho,  it's been a long time since my last update...

In January I had my annual check up with the vet since my adoption, I'm up to around 143 lbs or so and holding and the doc says I'm doing great and gave me a perfect bill of health.  My favourite treat these days is milk bone dipped in peanut butter....I drool just thinking about it.  I'm having sooooo much fun with my family, they take me places and do lots of things with me...from frolicking in the snow to cottaging in the summer...I've sent you some pics of our recent trip to the cottage in Quebec - it was tres fun!!!!  

You paddle, I'll swim
What are those webbed footed feathered creatures??
Are you coming in or what??
You are safe in shallow water now
Tycho to the rescue!
My human parents rented a van so they could set up my bed because I like to travel in comfort; they tell me I travel really well and we stopped for pee breaks and snacks.  At the cottage we met up with the auntie and grandparents...9 in all including me.  We spent all day every day outside.  I went swimming every morning (so I had time to dry out before bed time), discovered ducks, played fetch, and my newfie rescue roots.  I was so brave, I went half way up a wobbly dock (next year I try going the whole way), and now I don't get frightened or startled  by strange and unexpected situations.  My family continues to spoil me with sooo much love, hugs and kisses, and I do the same for them; although my kisses are much more wet and slobbery - muahahahahaha

I know I keep on saying it, but thanks for adopting me out to my family - we are made for each other! Our love, affection, and appreciation of each other continues to grow every day.  'til our next up-date...

Love Tycho Candy and family xoxox WOOF!
