#notsodifferent

by | Thursday, September 1, 2016 |

i’m coming off a blog hiatus to share a really important video…a video that has the potential to open people’s minds and hearts. snooty giggles is the official adopter of the colella family and we couldn’t be more thankful for the amazing beings they've added to our life. shining a light on special needs animals shines a light on all beings that are “different” and that can only lead to more compassion all around. please take a moment to read the backstory on the video and then view it. because...

spreading the love

jack has been with us almost 3 weeks now and i’m certain a gemologist would certify him a complete and total gem. his physical condition is getting better – the mange is slowly but surely improving and the ear infections are pretty much gone - he’s got a lot of free time now that he’s not scratching full-time. his personality is emerging more and more each day and he is definitely less fearful. he is incredibly sweet and playful…just an all-around magical little butters.estelle has fallen in...

a fun loving gal

estelle has proven to be an invaluable resource to our pack – she holds the record for routinely playing with the most members of the family.  i’m pretty sure jewel, indi and wilson are the only ones to successfully avoid her affections and i’m certain they’ll prove uncrackable.  she’s growing into such a lovely lady (although i use the term lady loosely) – she’s a sweet, loving and playful little package.  while her personality is developing her body does not seem to be and...

so stella seems to have succeeded where odin* couldn't - slowly but surely she and  carly are building a solid relationship.  for the first time in really what’s been well over a year carly seems happy and my heart feels a ton lighter…can i get a woot woot?    there’s a strange phenomenon going on here.  historically the idea of adding a new dog always came with equal parts excitement and apprehension.  there was always some fear of the chaos that would ensue - a...

a family enlarged

by | Monday, June 10, 2013 |

you might remember last september we adopted odin to hopefully be a buddy for carly and get her out of her depression.  for carly odin turned out to be a bust since he’s unwilling to play with anyone who’s larger than him.  that being said, odin is the greatest, most loving and congenial guy and he is unanimously adored here - he just wasn’t a fit for carly.  unfortunately after losing dooley, her running partner, carly seemed to go deeper into depression.  for the past few...
