Bringing more joy to our lives

Another Adoption Day! September 29, 2008

Filed under: Adoption,AMY,Dogs,Pets — Bala @ 9:31 pm

Today is Amy’s second Adoption Day. Its been two years since she has been with us and has hardly been away from me. In the last couple of years, she has traveled to 17 states with us, moved from Wisconsin to California with me and back. She has made some great friends, enabled us to make friends, and is a great spokesperson for adopted dogs. She has helped raise more than $250 for the Eau Claire Humane Association. There are no words to descibe the joy we have with her in the family.

Today, we went out for a long walk in the neighborhood and her treats included an awesome omelette. We are still waiting to go shopping for her presents!

Yesterday was Nikko’s first adoption day. We can’t believe it is already an year since the little guy came into our lives, and , that he is almost 3 years old! Nikko is getting a new happy hut and we all had loads of cinnamon coffee cake last night.


Do I look like I am 3?

And tomorrow is Amy’s adoption day too! She already got a whole bunch of new toys, including, of course, a tennis ball. She has been going crazy with all the new toys to play with.


Wanna come and play?

The biggest news of all is about Pepper. We have now officially adopted Pepper! She acts like she knows it too 🙂 Overall, we need to have a big adoption day bash here.


What took you guys so long?

We visited the Chippewa County Humane Association on Thursday and were helped by two high schoolers, in handling the animals and getting more info about them. Not only were they sooo helpful to us, they even petted Amy, which is like icing on the cake for her, after playing with the dogs. It was pouring when we went there too, and we spent all our time indoors. We visited with fewer dogs, but spent more time playing with them. Amy getting attention from Gina and Derek. Gina has been working / volunteering at this HA for the past five years and Derek, the last one and half years. They are adorable!

When we visited, Gibby’s adoption was pending. He is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix, about an year old. He had a slight limp in his right hand, which was probably broken, but had healed quite well. He had come in as a stray, but has now found a wonderful home. He was full of energy initially, sat down when asked and took treats from my hand.

Amy and Gibby hit it off right away, reminding me of Amy playing with Sephora! And no wonder that these two got tired pretty soon, and also added to it, that Amy had visited with about 15 dogs already and was exhausted from the excitement and playing. He was the last dog for the day and we all had such a great time at the ECCHA.

Derby is a three year old, male, lab mix, who was a stray before coming to the ECCHA. He is one of the most docile dogs we met there, who was every content to get some attention, treats and ear scratches. He gave little attention to Amy – just checked her out and ignored her! He seemed to be more of a pack-driven dog, with humans. He also knew the door, but was not willful about going out – just gave us this ‘please’ look and soon gave it up.

Buck is a one year old Lab-shepherd mix, who found his way to ECCHA, as a stray. He has been in the humane association for about 15 days. He is a big friendly doggie, who knows to open doors with a pull down handle. From the second he entered the room, he had eyes only for Amy and just wanted to play. We let them both off – leash and both of them had a great time.
