Update from Lady (formerly Rita's Ye-Zi)

Lady is such a smart and sweet girl. She pays so much attention on us trying to please us. She let me clean her ears, brush her teeth and bath her without fighting with me. She follows me everywhere even into the bathroom. (I got no privacy!!!) She is smart enough to trick us for a treat. She gets a treat every time she does her business outside. She learned to stand by the door to notify us she needs to go out. When she gets back she goes to the treat jar and sits there. A few times, I caught her that she went outside and turn around come back in to claim her treats. So sneaky! Since she hasn’t had an accident in the house for almost two months, last week I started letting her join Ranger to go to my neighbor’s house every Monday and Wednesday afternoon to have some fun while we are not home. They like her a lot too.

As I expected, her energy compensates Ranger’s calmness. She is always in play mode and never tired. However, sometimes, it’s too much for Ranger. Ranger is the opposite of Lady. He is so independent that he only comes to us when he needs some love. Ranger is also a gentleman. He lets her occupy his bed, play his toys and eat his food. The only thing I discourage them from doing is wrestling. Since their sizes are so different; Ranger is almost 90 pounds and Lady is 40 pounds, I am always nervous when they are wrestling. I don’t want any of them get hurt. Other than wresting, they play fetching, walk and run together.

I have attached a few photos of Lady and Ranger. They are so cute, aren’t they? They are the best dogs we can ever get. Again, Thank you all for bringing Lady to us.

Best regards,

Rita's Captain Sails to a New Life

Congratulations to Rita’s Captain who has found his forever home with our very own volunteer David and his wife, Sonsee. Captain, a beautiful 3 year old boy, is one of our latest arrivals from Project Taiwan, having made the long voyage in March of this year. Having just lost their wonderful Golden boy Kai (also from Taiwan) about 6 months prior, David and Sonsee offered to foster Captain upon his arrival in sunny Southern California…and…well…you can guess the rest! Captain wiggled his way into their hearts as well as the heart of his Golden sister Lani and never left his foster home.

Captain gives his thanks to Rita and M.J. for rescuing him in Taiwan and sending him here to ensure a better life for this special boy, as well as to GRCGLAR for being here for him. And of course he thanks David, Sonsee, and Lani for opening their hearts and their home to give him the wonderful life he deserves.
Welcome home, Captain!
