Dewey at Home

"Dewey is everything I was hoping for as a new member of our family! Many thanks to everyone in your organization for your outstanding commitment to potcakes. Everything went without a hitch because you had every detail for a successful adoption taken care of from the "wee-wee" pads in the bag to the health certificate. Also, a great big hug for the foster mom who socialized Dewey. She is very well behaved, loving and indeed mischievous. 

The family, including big brother Dooley and the cats, have fallen in love with her already. She fits in like she's been a member of the family forever."

Blue Eyes

"Dupree still has his beautiful blue eyes! He has completely adjusted to his new life in Arizona. He has learned how to shake his paw. Dupree continues to be a ball of endless energy. Princess is a 13 year old Lab and Dupree has brought out the puppy in her.

My grandmother passed away this month and somehow Dupree would recognize exactly when he needed to show some extra love to his family. Just yesterday he was on my lap and I just held him and he didn’t move until I was ready to let him go…he didn’t bite, wiggle or anything…and when I stopped hugging him, no joke he started licking the tears off my face. Puppy breath and all. I was touched. We love him very much and are very thankful for such a puppy."

Takes to the skies

"Jimmy is fantastic. He is loving and cuddly. He is totally house broken, knows when it is time for supper and knows several new things. He goes for a ride in the car almost every day. We are going to take him in our small airplane as soon as we get a doggy headset for him. He is spoiled, he is loved and he is my baby!"


Shake a Paw Utley

"Utley is doing fantastic! He had his second vet appointment last week. He weighs 20 pounds now. He is a delight to have in our household. He is crate trained and housebroken, he knows to come when he is called, he knows sit, stay and how to give his paw on command. He is a smart cookie! He and Barrett are two peas in a pod and enjoy each other's company very much. We are spreading the word to all of our family and friends about the potcakes."

Frequent Flyers

"Our Road Warriors made it safely home to Quebec. What a trip- they were so quiet, no sounds, no crying, just flying home like frequent flyers. Georges and Ginger made a major hit with USA immigration and Homeland Security. Upon arrival in Montreal, Canadian Officer thought they were so nice that he even got out of his security desk to cuddle them and play with them while thousands of visitors were waiting in line to be granted permission to enter Canada!!"

Cat and Cake Mix

"Grace just loves to run outside and plays a lot. She loves our cat Vincent and they chase each other around the house and share their toys with each other. She is so much fun and we are so glad to have her as part of our family."

Dallas, Texas

"I forgot to mention in my last Heywood update how well he gets along with our cats. In fact, I believe a couple of them actually like him instead of just tolerate him. He is a mild mannered little guy who just loves to play."
