Dear Judy and PRBJ Staff,
It is 6 weeks ago today that we lost our sweet Silky Terrier doggie, Emeril, and 13
days since little Ross (we renamed him, âColbyâ), also a Silky Terrier, came into
our lives thanks to you. The heartbreak and pain that filled our lives for a month
has been greatly eased by the addition of Colby to our family. We took him to our
vet, and his health is excellent. Although he was shy and did not have much of an
appetite when we first brought him home, he has adjusted beautifully. He eats very
well, and gives us more love that we could have imagined. Colby walks throughout
our community, each day, and is meeting lots of two and four legged friends. He
likes everyone and they like him. He is like a small child who grows every day and
lets us see who he is as he becomes more comfortable in his new home.
We will start a 6 week session of dog obedience classes this week, so that he can
interact with other dogs, and people, as well as learn basic commands and social
I love to take photos, and already have quite a collection as we make memories
of Colbyâs ânew chapterâ in life. We are grateful to your volunteer, Susan M., who
provided 3 weeks of loving Foster Care for Colby. We never expected to have
another dog so soon, and now cannot imaging a day without him. We are âover the
moon and backâ in love with Colby and cannot thank you enough for allowing us to
provide a âFurever Homeâ for him. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Hello Diane. I just wanted to let you know that Misty is doing great. She gets a little shy and hides, but a treat brings her back out of hiding. She is a good dog. My guess is she lived with teenagers before she came to us. She immediately felt most comfortable in my sons' rooms. She hasn't had any accidents or chewed anything (with the exception of her chew toys.) Her kennel is only when she wants a break, otherwise she snoozes on my son's bed, which he loves. We all love her. Guess we can call it a match!
