Happy Tails, Abby (FKA Stacey)

Abbie (FKA Stacey)

We adopted Abby just over a year ago and wanted to let you know that she’s doing really well.

It was a slow start though.  We took her to our vet and discovered heartworm was his specialty.  Who knew?  We decided to change her medication and treatment plan even though it was more expensive, more inconvenient, but more likely to get her better faster.  Read More →

Happy Tails, Sully (FKA Bronx)

Sully (FKA Bronx)

Just wanted to let you know Sully graduated on Saturday.  Here he is with his diploma!  He is not great at heel or coming when called but he does perfect on sit and down.  We will continue to work with him.

Happy Tails, Ted & Remi

Just wanted to give you an update on Remi.  First, let me say she is avery smart girl.  She has adjusted well to her new surroundings and brought a lot of personality out of Ted we didn’t know he had.  Having said that, she is a typical lab and when not exhausted from exercise or discipline, she can get into a bit of “chewing” trouble.  Nothing we can’t dealt with but it reminds us or our black lab, Cooper…out of sight, out of mind (if I’m bored) should be her motto.
Her chocolate color is really coming through.  We’ve attached a couple of pics for you.  She’s looking and behaving like a young lady but always eager to please even if she has something in her mouth, which is all the time if she had her way.

Happy Tails, Sophi (FKA Calli)

I got this picture of Sophi (Callie) on the way home in the car yesterday!  The girls played a little “Wild Kingdom” most of the way!  Lots of checking each other out.  When we got home she stuck real close to Glenn most of the evening kind of looking lovingly into his eyes!!  Our daughter brought her two little ones over as well so we had a full evening.  She settled right in ad bed time and we didn’t hear a peep out of her all night.  We’ve had a couple of nice long walks and she is already better on the leash than she was last night.  She does real well in the car, too.  We’ve run numerous errands today, lots less wild kingdom!  Thanks again for thinking of us when this gal came to you!

– Dana & Glenn,

We’ll keep you posted from time to time.

Happy Tails, Sunshine

I wanted to give you an update on Sunshine, our yellow lab, we adopted.  We rescued her in February from you.  After spending a few days at our house, she then spent a month at the Lexington Prison with the Friends For Folks program getting intense obedience training.  Upon her return from training, Sunshine and I then completed six weeks of therapy dog school together and are now a certified team!  Although, I do plan to use her at nursing homes with my family, I hope she will become a permanent fixture at my school next year and will be shared and loved by all 650 students at Washington Elementary School in Norman.

She really is an incredible dog with an incredible story!

Thanks again Heartland Lab Rescue!!!

Happy Tails, Boudreaux (FKA Christmas)

This is Boudreaux, formerly Christmas.  He is growing so much.  It seems like he grows by the hour.  We love everything about him!!!  Especially that precious little face.

Happy Tails, Liberty and Baloo

Wayne and I adopted Liberty and Baloo in December 2009.  They have been great dogs.  Most recently, they have been going with me for bike rides (they run along side) in a nearby cemetery.  They are learning how to turn and stay behind the front wheel so they can anticipate the direction.

Baloo loves everybody and everybody loves him.  Liberty is still a little fearful, but once she masters a new skill, she is very proud.  She likes to “pretty beg” (see the picture).  Most recently, she learned to go up and down stairs.

Every day they seem to thank me for their new home and I thank them.  I sleep better at night knowing they are watching for me.  Thanks so much for our dogs!

Happy Tails, Jake (FKA Slate)

We wanted you to know we are very happy with our adopted dog – Slate (whose name is now Jake).  I think he is also happy with us. Thank you!
