Xena

Xena

It’s been about 4 months since I “foster failed” and adopted Xena in late September, 2018. Not even 12 hours after my housemate took off for a family vacation in Seoul for two weeks, I went into Muttville to pick out a foster dog. From the foster page of the Muttville website, a close friend had pointed her out, that she had “wise, lucid eyes”- and as soon as I laid eyes on Xena in person, I knew I wanted to foster her and only her.

At that time, I did not think I could commit to giving Xena or any pet beyond succulents a forever home. Boy, was I wrong-Feelings of affection, adoration, just pure love all changed that. I wanted to, HAD to make our lives work. The first two weeks of fitting Xena into my already hectic life made it so hard, I would be lying if I said I didn’t think about returning her. But the days passed by and it became the norm to see Xena hop off the couch and greet me at the front door.

Now I can’t imagine a life without Xena. I look forward to coming home from work or from being out every day just to see her. In fact, I love Xena so much, I try and take her wherever I go (so far, just a Napa day trip!) and I’m looking forward to driving down to Carmel Beach and Big Sur with my family and her alongside for the holidays.

Maile (aka Chamomile)

Maile (aka Chamomile)

I picked up this little nugget after falling in love. She was scared and defensive on day one, but day two rolled around and she was all smiles! Chamomile (now renamed Maile) is a hospice dog but that doesn’t stop her from living her best life ever. She will definitely have many memories of momma spoiling her! Thank you Muttville for the newest addition to my troop!

Cisco (aka Sutro)

They shoulda called me Riley, ‘cuz that’s the life I’m livin’!!! It’s been over one year since I came up to Hat Creek, and if I do say so myself, I think I made the right choice. I have a lovely creek in which to dip my toes when it gets a tad warm, a little snow in which to play during the winter, four goofy playmates (well six really – can’t forget Cathy & Rich), jack rabbits to chase to help me keep my boyish figure, and a HUGE yard to romp in. Yup, I did alright here. Thanks for helping me find this place. I think I’m gonna stay.

Lucy (in Memoriam) #3622

Lucy (in Memoriam) #3622

It is with great sadness to inform you that our little girl Lucy passed away in late August from likely a brain tumor. We are incredibly devastated, and shocked that she is not with us any longer. She filled our lives with happiness. She was the littlest one in the pack, but she was the boss of everyone. Lucy was feisty, sweet and such a perfect, perfect little dog.

We love her so very much and our lives are not complete without her. Thank you for saving her and bringing her into our lives.

Sadie

Sadie

September marked Sadie’s first adopt-a-versary. I wanted to give you a quick update on how far she has come in the past year.

Sadie is an incredibly tough girl. Thankfully, we have a wonderful vet that has worked tirelessly to get her healthy. I am happy to say that at her last checkup she was released with a clean bill of health. She has gained 6 pounds in the past year, had 14 teeth extracted (with two oral surgeries), she has been spayed, had a mammary tumor removed and has cleared all of the infections that riddled her body when we got her. Her fur has grown back so there are no longer bald spots on her back. We have even strengthened her back legs so she can go up and down our stairs on her own now. She even had her very own birthday party when she turned the big 11!

It seems everyday she gets better at something!

However, none of this would have been possible without you, your staff and your generous donors. This dog was at a crossroads and I strongly believe that she would not have survived had Muttville not taken her in. And because you did, we have had an incredible year with one of the sweetest dogs we have ever known. She is fully folded into our family and we can’t imagine our lives without her.

Thank you again for the amazing work that you continue to do.

Best,

Kim

Ginger (in Memoriam)

Ginger (in Memoriam)

For more than 5 and a half years we’ve had nothing but love in our house because of Ginger. We brought her home from Muttville in Dec 2012 and she really made us a family. Despite her severe hip dysplasia, she gained muscle through physical therapy and got her health back, and she loved going for walks in our hilly neighborhood in SF!

Everyone loved Ginger, even friends who claimed they weren’t dog people. So besides sharing her with all our friends and family (she went everywhere with us!), she also became an Animal Assisted Therapy volunteer dog. She loved visiting patients and residents in senior homes and always brought a big smile to everyone’s face. With us, at home she was a cuddle bug and even in her last year with her loss of mobility, she was still goofy and loved to play.

Thank you for all you do! We love Muttville!

Butch (in Memoriam)

Dear Muttville,

I just wanted to let you know that Butch passed away in mid-July. I want to thank you for bringing us together. Although he was only with us for a short year, he brought us so much joy and taught us what true unconditional love felt like. He will be in our hearts forever.

Here are some great times we had together.

Love,

Suzanna & Silvio

Dax (aka Einstein)

Dax (aka Einstein)

DAX (aka Einstein) is my adorable little boy. He is my shadow and sleeps with me at night. His energy is boundless. He is so active and runs up and down my stairs like a streak. Sits outside on the porch and observes everything. His hair is growing in well and it is red with white gold on his crown. He eats anything and everything. He even has a tiny little belly. Walking, eating and searching the backyard are his favorite things to do. He and his sister search together. He cannot be 14 years old as he has so much energy. Sleeps well at night too. I just love him. Thank you Muttville for taking good care of him.

Thanks,

Sherry

Jasper Milo

Jasper Milo

We feel like we really won the Cosmic Dog Lottery in 2018 with Jasper Milo (we kept his original name because it really suits him!). He is such a sweet and fun little dog, and he loves to walk. Without a doubt, the smartest dog we have ever owned, much as we have loved our other pooches. In the morning he loves to run around, chew his toys, and take long walks, and in the after to his crate when told. At night he sleeps all night in bed with us, snoring gently, but when the sun comes up, he’s ready to go. We had his DNA checked and he’s half Maltese, a quarter miniature poodle, and a quarter chihuahua. So when people ask what kind of dog he is, I tell them the three breeds! So many thanks to Muttville for bringing this joyful little pup into our lives!
