Jesse (formerly known as Bo) has been with us for 2 years now. Gone is the shy, tentative guy we carted home from DC that day. Today we have a confident, happy dog who thinks he’s made it to dog heaven!

JesseHe spends his week days lounging close by while I work from home.

BoOldWeekends he’s with us on outings, family visits and leisurely car rides. His heart is big enough that he’s “adopted” a few neighbors who recently lost their dogs. He tolerates their cuddles and coaches them on how to give doggie massage. He is very social – is wonderful with our grandchildren and accepting of visitors – human or canine.

He has a penchant for snow and mud…loves to run and then roll in what ever is nearby to cool off!

He has full run of the house when we’re not home – and is so joyful when we return. Jesse meets us at the door with a toy in his mouth and two minutes of his unique grumbling.

We can’t thank you enough for rescuing this guy. He’s a beautiful dog – inside and out!

We adopted Ahby, then Meg, as a puppy in September 2008. She is the most lovable dog we have ever known!

AhbyShe greets everyone she meets and isn’t afraid of anything.¬†She will even lay with you when you are sick. Ahby loves playing ball, giving kisses and eating ice cubes.

We are grateful to Homeward Trails for providing us with our best friend.

Bixby is a 1-year-old lab/chow/??? mix. We adopted him in July of 2009, as Kelso, when he was 6 months old. We told Homeward Trails what we wanted in a dog, and they matched us up perfectly and quickly.

BixbyEverything is going great. He is well behaved and has a special relationship with every member of the family, especially with our daughter, age 10. We love him. Thank you, Homeward Trails!
