Yoko

Yoko is doing great! She has made herself totally comfortable with us and is absolutely a part of the family.

She just got her first grooming and we took it down short to give her a fresh spring cut!

As you can see, everything is looking good, we are all incredibly happy!

Thank you for everything and we will absolutely stay in touch!

Siena (aka Double Dutch)

Siena (aka Double Dutch)

Hello,

I wanted to give a quick update on Siena (formerly Double Dutch). She has been doing really well, and is definitely starting to settle in. We are working with a trainer on her anxiety and she has had many successful public outings and excursions. She’s also now doing much better with other dogs. She has spent some time with other dog friends in Tahoe, on hikes and around our house. She very much enjoys her dog walkers, and she has quickly become one of their favorite old ladies! She also likes hanging out on the couch and listen to classical radio while we’re at work, and sometimes she even gets to come to work with us!

Gingham

Gingham

Gingham is now a completely different dog. It’s incredible how much he’s warmed up to us and our dogs. He’s adjusted so well. When I got him, he was on 4 different pills. Now he’s on 1 and only for a month. It’s truly stunning what love, attention, and care can do for an animal. He runs around all the time with his alligator and has so much energy. His tail never stops wagging unless he’s sleeping. He loves car rides and cuddles and digging under the covers. We love him!

She saved my life! She has been the best dog. She’s really smart and happy. Her favorite day is Halloween because she loves kids. Her tail is always wagging.

Roger (In Memoriam)

Roger (In Memoriam)

I wanted to let you know that Roger (he was dog 2,586 rescued by Muttville) crossed the rainbow bridge last month. I adopted him as a 12-year-old Husky mix and got to enjoy 4.5 wonderful years with him as my buddy for long walks, playtime in the parks, trips up to Napa, and afternoon naps in the backyard.

He was such a wonderful and special dog, always smiling, and he was able to pass peacefully at home with me holding him when the time came.

I just wanted to say thank you for giving me such a wonderful companion.

Flossy and Sassy

Flossy and Sassy

We are so lucky we’re able to provide Flossy and Cyndi (Sassy) a loving home. Flossy LOVES sunbathing and they love relaxing on the couch with us. We are so in love with them already and you can tell it’s reciprocated. Flossy doesn’t let her hind legs stop her from anything, she runs around the yard and even enjoys short walks! And Sassy has belly rubs aplenty. We can’t wait until we can adopt from Muttville again! :)

Thank you,

Alexa and Alyssa

Luna (aka Tetris)

Luna (aka Tetris)

I adopted Tetris (renamed Luna) on 1/19/2019. She has now lost 4 lbs and is an active, happy & adorable dog. These are her before & after photos (taken at the pet sitter’s ranch while I was recently on vacation). She is a social butterfly & loves to be the center of attraction. She gets along very well with her brother, Fu.

Reggie (In Memoriam)

Reggie (In Memoriam)

Hi Muttville,

I wanted to send a sad update that my sweet Reggie, whom I adopted in August 2017, crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. He was truly the most wonderful dog I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to everyone at Muttville for allowing Reggie and I to find each other.

Reggie was a loving son, a cherished friend and uncle, and a beloved member of the community. He was kind to every person and animal he came across and could always be counted on for help – from licking the floors clean, to watching over me after a hard night out, to waking me up every morning with loud thumps of his tail and aggressive nudging. It won’t be easy going back to alarm clocks.

Reggie loved long walks, chicken, and rummaging through the recycling. Later in his life, when his legs grew weak, he loved rolling around town in his Radio Flyer wagon, with the breeze blowing through his wiry fur. Even in his late age, Reggie loved adventure. He traveled up and down the California coast, then drove cross country to a new life with me in the East Coast. He experienced snow for the first time (not his favorite) and ran free in the woods of upstate New York. He was happiest when he was around people, whether they were trusted family members or brand new friends.

Reggie was a constant source of joy and comfort. With his stumpy little legs and little hoagie body, he brought smiles to everyone on the street. There’ll never be another one like him. I’ll miss him forever.

Thank you Muttville for all of the work you do for dogs like Reggie, and for dog lovers like me.

Best,

Gabrielle

Minnie (aka Fifi)

Minnie (aka Fifi)

Hi Muttville,

I wanted to give you and update on Minnie (aka Fifi). It’s been a year now she’s been in my life. What a sweetie!! She loves the beach, other dogs (as long as they don’t steal her treats) and no longer thinks she should chase my chickens. In fact, the “queen” chicken chases her. Of course, she sleeps on my bed with Yogi, who’s 16, but she is certainly the Queen of the house. In the mornings, if I don’t get up when she’s ready for breakfast she proceeds to climb all over me! Did I mention she does this at 6:00 am? Since I’m retired we have a lot of time to play, walk, eat, sleep, and basically just love each other. You all are so great at what you do. Thank you again, from the deepest part of my heart. You’re all angels.

Linda S.

P.s. I live in Ft Bragg and last week my neighbor adopted Tiger, a little poodle from you. Hopefully, someday, “the hood” will be full of Muttville adoptees.

Poppy aka Puppet (In Memoriam)

Poppy aka Puppet (In Memoriam)

Lynda had sent us Poppy’s story in February, but Poppy suddenly passed away. She added this tribute:

“Poppy died in her sleep early morning of April 11. I didn’t realize she’d gone until I started to get out of bed because she died as she lived without causing any fuss.

My thanks to all of you at Muttville for giving me the opportunity to enjoy every minute of nearly two wonderful and magical years with that incredible little bundle of joy who was my Poppy. She made an impression on everyone she met and I don’t think I would have been able to make such an easy transition into my new life without her. Everyone on the staff in my vet’s office came out to kiss her little face and weep with me when I took her in this morning.

I will miss her for the rest of my life.”

Hello Muttville,

Nearly two years ago my Mom adopted me as a Fospice dog when I was called Puppet and I wanted to update you on how things are going. For starters I seem to have trained my Mom well because she can’t bear the thought of a day without me so takes really good care of me. For the first fifteen months I lived in Sonoma, which was great apart from the terrible fires. Then Mom decided it was time for a new life so we upped stakes and headed up Highway 5 to Oregon last Fall. I am so happy. We live in a complex with lots of other dogs, squirrels and people who think I’m a movie star so constantly stop me for my autograph. I run up and down 14 steps three times a day on the way out and in for strolls in the neighborhood. My horrible cousins (rat terriers and a fiendish cat) live a short drive away but the upside is I get to see my big human brother (photo attached in the woods up the street). So far I’ve been to the beach, peed in snow, found a vet who feeds me endless treats when I stop by to visit; I even have a boyfriend who’s a white poodle also called Poppy. He adores me, as well he should, but occasionally I have to keep him in line with a curl of my lip and a ferocious growl. Anyway, all of this to say I’m still going strong, love my life and have no intention of shuffling off this mortal coil any time soon – it would upset my Mom too much. Thanks for giving me a great start and for finding a new Mom for me – love Poppy.
