Lizzie’s Big Day!

Congratulations to Lizzie!  Lizzie, after many months, has finally found her “FUR”ever home!


My family was convinced I would never let her get adopted. It was never the case she just needed the right family. The greatest part is she is being adopted by Ashley who lives a few blocks away from us. Can we say VISITATION and first dibs on “dog sitting”. Ashley has been interested in Lizzie since we got her last July. She has followed her failed adoption, almost adoption, and decided she wasn’t letting her get away this time. They are a perfect match. Lizzie will live with mom Ashley and skin brother Miles and feline Smokey.” Congratulations Ashley & Lizzie!


Lizzie will forever hold a special place in my heart!  Miss you girl but so happy for you!

Potter arrived to us as just a shell of a dog, 57lbs,  starved with his ribs and hip bones visible.  He has flourished into a healthy 79lbs and is full of energy and boxer spunk.

Potter accompanied me yesterday am for his first official run! He loved it!  We made it about 2.5 miles before I decided that was far enough for his initial journey.  Like humans they have to build up their endurance. Rex, his fur brother, can handle up to 7 miles at a time in cool temps.  I am super thrilled to have another “Boxer Runner”  in my running rotation for my early morning runs!

Please consider adopting vs. shopping for a Pet of any kind.  There are millions of animals in need of loving and caring families all over the world.  These animals need a second chance at life!   Adopting and animal in need might be the most rewarding thing you ever do!
