"WOOFS!"

"Meows! Noah! I thought we were going to write about our cat and dog friends from local rescues needing "Forever Homes!" with humans to love them and they will love too?!"

"WOOF! Yup Samson, that was the plan. But, into every life, change happens, things come up. Paws, no worries though. Our humans are doing well, they just had something come up which means we are not allowed to be on the computer."

"Purrs, oh ok! We plan to return next week, right?"

"Pawfect my pawsome furball buddy!"

Con: Relax. It could be worse. 

Con: Jesus could have never given us a reason to celebrate Easter!

I paw and bark my thanks to Prayer Pups for sharing their pawsome artistic talents with us.

"from The Dog's Paw!" Welcomes Abigail Aria (Abby) to the Family!

"WOOFS! Barks!"

"Meows! MEOWS! Purrs!"

"Samson and I are welcoming 'Abigail Aria,' we call her 'Abby,' to our family and to "from The Dog's Paw!

Abby is a rescued puppy! Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) rescued Abby's mother when she was pregnant with Abby and her siblings! When she was born, she was cared for by a pawsome human foster family before she was adopted. Barkingly, they soon learned that a puppy isn't the best fit for their family. WOOFS! Barkingly, a puppy needs time, lovin's, and lots of training! They are a handful as our pawsome humans are learning!"

"Meows! Abby, the mostest beautiful sweet Black Labrador Retriever mix joining our family at a 5-months-old on October 18, 2020! She has been working with Dad, Mom, and Dog Trainer named Vic Cruz of Cruz Canine Consultants to learn how to live with humans and the manners she must have! Purrs! She is doing really well, a meowingly smart and sharp young lady!"

"WOOFS! Selecting a name for 'Abigail Aria' wasn't easy! Her rescue name was Josslyn, but our humans didn't like it. Barkingly, they prefer using Bible names but their research didn't really find a name they liked. The second preference is classical music genres or composer names. Dad liked the genre's term "Aria" so she was almost named that. Pawingly, when Dad went to research a piece of classical music that he heard and liked, he quickly discovered the "Aria" movement is one of evil mischief. Nope! Don't want to do that as the first name.  We'll research classical music to find another 'Aria' piece we like! For now, it's back to the drawing board! WOOFS!"

One of Dad's bestest buddies mentioned the name, Abigail. Dad did his usual research but went a bit further with a Study Bible and a reference book. He learned the name means, 'joy, joyful, or to rejoice!' Yes, he probably went a bit further to find a name for her than most pet parents. However, as with a mini-human, you want to be sure the name means something that represents you and the dog well. Since Abby was adopted during the COVID-19 nonsense, she is definitely a pawsitive representation of 'joy.'"

"MEOWS! Abby will be writing a few posts and pawssibly reviewing some dog travel and safety products! Meowingly, we'll see as we have temporarily halted product reviews while we consider some guidelines as to what we'll consider! Barks! After all, we cannot and will not review each and every product that comes our way! Paws, we always reserve the right to refuse to review any products, not to our standards." 

"WOOFS! Woof! Barkingly, pawlease welcome our sweetheart, the newest member of our family and the 'from The Dog's Paw' team, Abigail Aria (Abby)!

Rio is crate- and house-trained!

Rio loves to run in the yard and go for hikes! He is great with humans and loves to snuggle after a run or playing fetch! He knows pawlenty of commands too. 

Rio is good with other dogs after a slow introduction. Barkingly, he would prefer to be your one-and-only-dog-that-is! He wants ALL of your attention! Barks!

Rio has been neutered and is up-to-date on his vaccines and preventatives! He is barkingly excited to find his new "Forever Home!" with humans to love who will love him too!

Friday's Friend! Cat Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

Meows! Meow! Happy Friday my fine feline friends... and humans too! My friend "Cat Lady" stopped by this week with a beautiful cat for you to consider adopting for your bestest-feline-friend-ever! Meet Athena!

Purringly, Athena is the mostest sweetest, gentlest, affectionate-est, and playfulest cat! She loves curling up on a human's lap and purring her sweet little heart out! When she's not snuggling, she plays with kitty-abandon- stalking, chasing, and pouncing on her toys!  

Paws, things weren't always easy for Athena. Since she was 6-weeks-old, now she's 4-years-old, she only knew one human. When her human Dad suffered a serious stroke and couldn't take of her, PetConnect Rescue took her in. Though she loved and trusted her Dad, she was afraid of everyone else!

Meows and purrs, with some time, she's learned to trust her foster family and has developed into an affectionate feline with a bit of an impish side. 

Purringly, since she has had no contact with other humans, besides her former owner, new environments and people will always be a bit scary for her. Paws, with a little time and patience, she can transition to a new "Forever Home!" and become a pawsomely loving feline companion. 

Meows, to learn more about cat adoption, pawlease visit PetConnect Rescue's Adoption Guide
