Happy tails from Elliot! His new parents waited a long time to bring this special pup to there home! As you can see it was worth the wait! His new mom writes "a little over two weeks ago i flew back to Memphis to pick up a little pup named Elliot. i spent the day hanging out with him and his amazing foster mom. we are so lucky to have this little turkey in our home. thanks to AAD for giving our new old man a chance, he is thriving in his new home in the Bay Area and is attached at the hip to his new dad!"
i. Thanks for reading out! Emma is doing so very well, it is amazing. We are all so very happy, and I'm not sure who kisses who more!
> We are in the middle is some major construction right now (Emma is handling all the noise & workers in & out if the house all day better than we are!) so busy. Hoping things will calm down a bit in the next few weeks so I can take some photos....I will definitely share. I also got a new & highly technical new camera for Christmas, which I'm trying to use, which is also hindering the picture taking process! Took me a half hour to figure out how to get the strap on!!
> Anyway, we are all ridiculously happy. Emma loved her walks & being outside. We are trying to learn sit & stay and wait, and she is a true lap dog. She's also made it to the big bed, and has become protective & barks when the doorbell rings.
Here is a picture of "Sweet Ellie" we Love her with ALL of our heart... She was welcomed in our home with three other sisters that she loves dearly and they love her back... Ellie acts like she has always lived with me and my husband and I wish she had, but I am glad we have her now.... She right away made a place in our bed where she sleeps every night right along with the other three, she fits right in..
Please write anytime to see how she is doing and I will send you pictures from time to time if you would like..
Thank you so much!!
From Elvis new home: "Elvis fits in wonderfully with our pack. He plays with his brothers, Bob and Murry."
ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!
Our first doxie was Molly, approximately 12-yrs old when we got her through the Knoxville Dachshund rescue folks in 2004. Six months later she was diagnosed with Cushing's disease and given a year to live. We loved her and took care of her, and she lived for three more years. She died peacefully in our arms, and we still feel grief to this day.
Susan and I are convinced that Molly was our angel, sent to us to make us understand what rescuing such wonderful creatures means. We have this saying as our screen saver on our computer: "Loving Molly forever. Loving Joey and Eby because Molly made it so." The Christmas picture is Molly's first with us.
We got Eby (your Ebony) and Joey (your Echo) nearly two years ago...we picked up Eby in Alcoa, TN to send back to you, but by the next morning, when we met your 18-wheeler angel delivering Joey to us, we couldn't give Eby to him, as we were supposed to do. So, both Eby and Joey came home with us that morning. Eby was terrified of nearly everything. And Joey was skinny and frightened. It took two weeks for Eby to wag her tail and much longer until she gave us kisses. Joey adapted quickly, because all he wanted was a lots of love, which was easy for us, and he returned it 10-fold, showering kisses on us all the time.
They are now happy and healthy and play fight and chase each other around the house and into the fenced yard all the time. Eby loves to play fight with "Daddy" in our bed when we wake up in the morning, while "Mommy" and Joey watch. Joey only play fights with Eby...and spends a lot of time in Daddy's recliner, often with Daddy. Joey, you see, is a lover, not a fighter. The yard picture shows our healthy and happy dynamic duo.
We are all one big happy family, because of you, and Eby, and Joey. We understand how Jamie feels about Sir Edward, because of our Molly and what she means to us. A donation to the Sir Edward Project is forthcoming.
