Happy Tail…Beauregard

Happy Tail…Beauregard

Beauregard, now Marshall, found a wonderful family in Clarksville and made himself right at home from the moment he walked through the door.

From his family:

Beau (we call him Marshall now) has been doing so well! He recognizes and answers to his new name and has been quite a cuddle bug since we got him. He and Lily have been wrestling and running and chewing together a lot. They’ve been doing A LOT better together since you last saw them together. Lily even allows Marshall to sleep on her from time to time. Marshall has been working a lot on some new commands (lay down, sit, go to bed) and has been doing pretty well. We’ve also been able to work him down to bringing us only one shoe every once in awhile instead of always having our shoes in his mouth! He loves running with Lily in the yard and we hope that once it warms up and dries out, we can take the two out for walks on the Greenway and around our neighborhood ūüôā We’re so happy that we took Marshall into our home ūüôā he’s been a great friend for Lily to have and a great companion for us as well.

Remember our Carr’s Creek Critter who took over 6 weeks to rescue and who found a wonderful home with a college freshman

Taylor sent us a picture of their¬†first day of classes. He is doing great and Taylor patiently worked with Chance and he is no longer hesitant to cross the street with her. ¬† A treat for our rescue and especially Chance’s foster family…he is coming for a few days visit it March!!!

Ran into Rosie’s dad the other day and he sent me these pictures of our Izzy Rose. ¬†She weighs 125 lbs now and it seems that she can’t ¬†recline without Chris or¬†sleep without her feline friend close by!

A Happy Tail….Sweetie

Sweetie has found a wonderful home with Elizabeth in the Nashville, TN area.

A sunny window where she can watch the comings and goings and a big big mirror in the dining room where she can check out who is the fairest of them all.  Best of all she is just the right companion to keep her new mom company.  Tummy rubs from us, Sweetie!!

Chance, who hasn’t decided what his area of study will be, is going to¬†Western Kentucky¬†University¬†with Taylor .¬† ¬†What a difference from the abandoned pup it took 6 weeks to rescue from¬†the Carr’s Creek area of Robertson County! ¬†Chance’s foster mom, Judy, has dealt with many feral dogs for I Could Have Been Adopted and is convinced that with a little patience they make the best pets. ¬†But it knocked our socks off to watch Chance connect with Taylor immediately. ¬†Best of luck and lots of love Chance. ¬†¬†¬†

Tigger … No Unwanted Litters

The¬†Wilkins family now has a visitor who sleeps, eats, and accepts lots of love in our garage at night, Tigger has the run of the neighborhood during the day while we have the comfort of knowing he has had a rabies and feline distemper vaccine, been wormed, and more importantly will not be responsible for one more unwanted kitten being born. Thanks to the Trap Neuter Release program (TNR) supported by Sumner Spay & Neuter Alliance in Gallatin TN, the¬†vetting cost, including “fixing” is 25.00. ¬†Call ¬†I Could Have Been Adopted at 6153909622 to learn more about this program.
