A smart fella, Magic know his basic commands like "sit," "down" and "come." He is learning to pay attention when food is involved!

Magic is one of those BBB Labs! A "Big Black BlockHead" who is full of Lab personality and Lab energy!

Magic needs an active family with an active lifestyle who will play with him and take him to socialize with other dogs in addition to walks.  He wants a fenced yard so he can run around and play fetch frequently. Walks will not be enough for this guy!

I had to ask. Is Dubble Bubble a thoroughbred of dignified distinction or ... and he told me that its pawssible he is a mix of Harrier and American Foxhound. This makes sense as his nose is usually sniffing out what's around when he's out and about. Much like I do when I am walking my human!

He has a pawsome handsome tri-colored coat with the classic hound eyes too! WOOF!  We hounds are quite handsome, I'd say!

Though Dubble Bubble loves to give doggie kisses, affection, and welcomes calm affection from humans, he is an independent sort of fella preferring leadership from his humans! He is looking for a human who wants the same thing he does, structure, intelligent games, lots and physical activity and may some couch time when its all done!  WOOF!!

Dubble Bubble is a smart guy who knows basic commands and learns new ones quickly!  He is housebroken.

Dubble Bubble is smart, knows basic commands, and learns new ones quickly. Dubble is looking for someone who wants the same thing he does: structure, intelligent games, lots of physical activity, and some couch time after all of that. He will go into his crate on his own if he's tuckered out and just wants some peace and quiet.

Dubble Bubble gets along well with many other dogs but he prefers the others who like to rough and tumble while playing.  WOOFs!

Baby Girl is looking for her "Forever Home" and humans to love!  She is around 2-years-old and is up-to-date on her vaccinations, preventatives and is spayed! What a pawsome purrster!

Baby Girl was found abandoned outdoors with a rear broken leg. She is fully recovered and nothing slows the girl down!  WOOF, er MEOW!!

Baby Girl gets along with other dogs and cats and loves being near her humans. She loves to watch the world go by through the windows of her foster's home.

Baby Girl loves wet food.

Baby Girl is hoping that someone will give her a chance to be their meowingly pawsome cat.  She has no idea why her previous humans left her-look at that face- isn't she sweet? Woof, and a meow too.

A note from my friends at PetConnect Rescue: The adoption fee for Baby Girl is $135, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. Cats adopted through PetConnect Rescue must be indoor only, and may not be declawed (unless already declawed at the time of rescue).

The first step in approving adoption applicants is to completing a Veterinarian check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important so they will be speaking with the vet(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies), spayed or neutered and examined annually by your Veterinarian.

If you would like to learn more about cat adoption, pawlease visit the PetConnect Rescue Cat Adoption Guide

Interested in meeting Baby Girl or pawssibly applying to adopt her? Please complete the PetConnect Rescue Adoption Application.  Once submitted, one of their pawsome Adoption Coordinator will contact you.

A Charlie Brown Christmas!


(C) www.picgifs.com
Christmas finally arrived at our home! It is not Christmas until my human has seen "A Charlie Brown Christmas" on the local television station. Apparently, it needs to be on the TV channel, the right time and the like for my human to realize it's Christmas or maybe for him to start celebrating the Christmas season. A right funny bloke, he is!

Prior to the show, as you can't miss one second of this glorious fun, he will gather snacks and drinks and curl up in front of the TV with anticipation. You'd think the most glorious event in history was coming on. Paws, to him it probably is!

Part of my human's enjoyment is his snacks and what he drinks during the show. Since all the "good" and "delicious" stuff isn't allowed within his reach these days, I'm pawing to see what he grabs to snack on.  And, he is way too careful at how many treats he gives me so can't wait for that either.

My human tells me every year, and being the great dog that I am and not wanting to be rude and knowing that his dad used to do the same thing to him, I am quietly polite as I listen to the once again story of why he does this every year!

"Noah!"

"Human! er, sorry, Yes Dad?" woof quietly under my breath...

"When I was just a young sprat." (what is a sprat I ask myself again quietly) "my parents and I used to watch a Charlie Brown Christmas every year. It wasn't Christmas until it came on the TV." (I think what a boring sprat ... I digress!) "We watched other Christmas shows like Rudolf-the-Red-Nosed-Reindeer or Frosty too. But, Charlie Christmas was the best and still is. We'd our snacks and be ready at 8 p.m.!"

Being totally surprised that there was television and in color when he was young, I try not to gasp or allow my face to turn all white or ashen as I say, "WOW- what a great memory Dad!"

So I paw and gently nudge my human as we curl up to watch his favorite Christmas show.  After all, Santa Claus is watching so I better watch out!"

Merry Christmas!

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

"Sandy"
(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
It wouldn't be Friday without a visit from my human friend of "Lab Lady" who is infinitely surrounded by many Labrador Retrievers-  she brought by a pawsome lady named "Sandy" for you to meet!

Sandy is a 7-year-old Yellow Labrador Retriever who is looking for her "Forever Home" in a single-family house located in a rural or suburban area. She has a physical fence requirement.

Sandy is a most beautiful and sweet girl, with soulful eyes which will tug at your heart, who loves other dogs and is a little slow to warm up to humans.  She is adjusting well to her new life and putting her past one as a breeder dog behind her.

Sandy enjoys playing with other dogs in the backyard and lounging around the house. One of her absolute must-haves includes a playful companion, fenced yard, and someone who is home more often than not.

Sandy is crate trained.

Sandy is approved for mini-humans ages 7 and older.  She is not recommended for cats!

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League

"Apollo"
(C) Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League

My pawsome friend the "Great Dane Dame" of the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League stopped by this week with a barkingly grand, and large-I'd say, guy for you to meet- Apollo!

Apollo is an affectionate, playful, and very smart Great Dane who shares his emotions through hilarious facial expressions. He knows his basic commands like "sit," "down," and "stay" but if he doesn't agree with them, or other commands, he will mumble back at you- which is often quite hilarious! His foster parent wonders if he really does know English! BARK! WOOF! He is very well trained but does need reminding as he can be stubborn!

Apollo is house-broken and will let you know when he wants to go out. BARKS! He is good about not eating things he shouldn't and is not destructive. He is crate-trained but is fine to stay in a confined area when his humans are working.

Barkingly, Apollo has a blanket obsession! He only takes the one he knows is his! He'll go everywhere with his blanket in tow.

Apollo walks fantastic on a leash and even stops traffic with his handsome stride. He is still learning some leash manners as he likes to pull and bark when he sees other dogs! Given Apollo still needs some work on manners, he will have a training requirement as part of his adoption.

Apollo requires special attention during feeding and needs specific easy digestion dog food. His bowl needs to be elevated to head height, his foster parent uses a tall bar stool, to feed him. He has a slow feeder which he gives him 1 cup at a time (3 cups total) with 4 breaks while eating that 1 cup. Feeding time takes around 20 minutes twice a day which is a commitment with pawsitively must be kept to keep him healthy. It is an easy thing to do for such a pawsome fella! He is food motivated and will do just about anything for peanut butter and milk bones!

Apollo is recommended for mini-humans, but not for cats or small dogs!

Friday's Friend! Cat Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

Cat Adoption
"Cleo"
(C) PetConnect Rescue / Creative: Allen Pearson

WOOF! BARK! MEOW! I hope you are having a pawsome week! My meowingly great friend "Cat Lady" stopped by this week with a very special kitty for you to meet!

Meet Cleo! An adorably, gentle, and sweet little girl with the most pawsomely angelic green eyes! She loves being with her humans and just hanging out. Meowly, Cleo gets along with the dogs in her foster home!

Cleo is a miracle kitty! She will need a very special human to adopt her! Cleo is around 1-year-old and has had a few challenges in this short time. She swallowed a string which required pretty major surgery to remove it.  As a result, it is hard for her to put on weight and get the nutrients she needs. She will need to be fed special wet food 4-5 times daily. Meows, she will need to take two pills each day and weekly Vitamin B shots. The Veterinarians think Cleo may need a similar level of care for the rest of her life.  Even with the pills, sometimes her tummy hurts and she gets sick. She will need an understanding adopter who has the time and patience to give the care needed. 

A note from my friends at PetConnect Rescue: Cats adopted through PetConnect Rescue must be indoor only, and may not be declawed (unless already declawed at the time of rescue).

The first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a Veterinarian check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important so speaking with the Veterinarian(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies), spayed or neutered and examined annually by your Veterinarian.
