about 3 months ago (i really need to get this blogging thing together) i came across a wire-haired terrier posted on the snooty giggles facebook page. we had lost wilson about 2 months earlier and my terrier defenses were at a very low point. i tried to put him out of my mind for a few days but finally sent shawn a text to find out his story. snooty giggles ended up with pow because a cherry eye had him slated for euthanasia at the shelter he was in…it was only after taking him into the program...

a few weeks ago we decided to foster another dog for snooty giggles, asprey beach. she’s a 7-year-old french bulldog who had recently been through some traumatic changes and she pulled quite hard at my heart strings. in probably the span of a month or so she was hit by a car and had a leg amputated, her owner died and then the family or friends dropped her rather unceremoniously at a shelter in kentucky. fortunately snooty giggles came to her rescue and started her on her new life. we were...

several weeks ago in the midst of one of my “find a best friend” frenzies i was searching wire-haired terriers on petfinder when i was completely taken by this guy... i contacted the west memphis animal shelter where he was and learned he had been there for 3 weeks after having been seized from a meth house. his 10-day hold had ended and his owners <fortunately> hadn’t returned to claim him. i filled out the necessary paperwork which was, believe it or not, approved and we made...

sadly it’s been a bit hard keeping you all up on the comings and goings of our family this year and i’ve been really remiss in introducing our newest family member but i’m here today to rectify the situation.  i’ve also put this introduction off a bit because it’s always difficult for me to write these posts when we’ve adopted a dog from a family having to let their dog go.  in all these situations i’ve always highly respected the family’s decision to want a better situation for their...

a big sigh

i’m happy to announce that we are once again a complete family and we’ve been able to honor dooley’s memory by adopting another wolfhound…a win-win all around.  merlin’s original family’s life circumstances changed and they were no longer able to provide him the life he was accustomed to.  i know people tend to come down on others for rehoming their dogs (and i do think too often it’s a much too careless decision) but this is truly a case of someone who wanted the very best for her...

a family enlarged

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...
