Hi, guys! It's me, Dutch. (Remember me? I was with you back in September. I was a stray in McCook.) I just wanted to THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for taking such good care of me until my new family, the McLemores, could come and pick me up! YOU ALL ARE AWESOME!Dutch, July 2010

Well, I'm living a half mile outside of Colby, Kansas, now. I have a big yard (1.5 acres) and my own swimming pool (see me in the pic). I also have a great neighbor dog, Abbey. She's some kind of cute little Australian shepherd or something. We love to RUN REALLY FAST so I get lots of exercise. She also is my very favorite chew toy (but I never hurt her!)

The McLemores have 3 big boys--but only Brandon is living at home right now. Blake's at K-State but he comes home often to see me. I haven't met Ryan and his wife, Samantha yet 'cuz they live in Minnesota. Dutch, July 2010I love to chase Brandon around the house. We have a big kitchen with an island in the middle, and also a circle around the living room and kitchen area. I bark and get pretty excited when we play! But I've also been on my best behavior and I settle right back down and am still my loving, sweet self. My owner's say I should be my own breed, 'cuz everyone would want a dog with my personality and cute, little "floppy" manerisms! I can tell that they all really love me 'cuz they're always hugging me.

Another thing I love to do is go on walks in the country with my owner, Suzie. Actually, they're hikes. She takes me off the leash and I run in the fields and hills. They keep saying stuff about going hunting, or something like that. . .I'm anxious to see what it's all about.

I had a bacteria in my stomach and intestines, (the vet thought it could be from what I ate when I was a stray) but I've been taking medicine and I'm feeling quite a bit better now.

At night I sleep in the house on my own doggie bed, but during the day they put me on a light chain while they're all gone. They lay my bed on the front porch so I guess it's not too bad; but I'm sure happy when they get home!

Dutch, July 2010My favorite toys are my doggie tennis balls, and my squeaky duck. I also have a squeaky football and lots of big rawhide chews. For halloween, I'm going as a dalmation, 'cuz my owner, Bob, is the Colby fire chief.

Well, guess I'd better go for now. It's getting late and I need my rest. Thanks again for everything and give all my friends up there a big, wet "lick" for me!

Love to all, Dutch


Suzie & CookieSuzie is fitting in very well in our home. We have grown to love her a lot and are very attached to her.

It took a few days for Cookie to
accept Suzie as a member of our family but she is getting better every day. She had her first visit with the vet and he said she is a very healthy dog.

We can't thank you enough for allowing us to give Suzie a loving home.

She will be a great member of our family for many years.

AnnieWe adopted Annie, a spaniel shepherd cross. She is doing great, we have had no problems with her at all.

She has slept all night each night and walks with us on the leash every day. She is a loving dog who craves attention. We just wanted to let you know how she is doing and to thank you for saving her.

Just thought we’d show you how much Annie is growing!!

We love her so much, she’s doing amazing, and loves to play.

Thanks again,
Gary and Cindy


Just wanted you to know that Smoozie is doing well at our house and with our chichuahua Chalupa. Shes settled in quite well and has taken to a cat bed that we had for her, she lets us know where she is and "talks" to us and we enjoy her 'voice' :) Thank you for saving her and letting us be the proud parents of her!

Thank you again for all your hard work and care of rescue animals!

I wanted to write and tell you how happy our family is with our two new little puppies. Tait is thrilled to death to have his new puppies home. They traveled well yesterday and had a good night’s sleep. Tait was awake at 6:30 this morning to take his “little girl and big boy” out for a walk and get them their breakfast.

I just wanted to tell you what a pleasant experience we had at your shelter yesterday! You and your staff were very kind and made adopting the puppies very easy and fun!

I will send some pictures soon and give you and update on their new names. The boy is definitely Spot but little girl still has no name. Thanks again for all your help!!!

Just wanted to let you know how Diamond did the first night in her new home. She was super excited and ran everywhere. We had to keep her on a leash since she took off the first time my husband let her out of the pickup. I bought a halter instead of a collar and she never tried to put the leash in her mouth and pull.

I introduced her to our goat herd and she was very curious. About an hour after we had her home she was already settling down and she listens very well. I was even able to let her off the leash when we'd take her outside to pottie. By 8:30 she was tired and wanted to sleep on her new pillow. But I would not let her sleep until we went to bed at 10. She was exhausted and didn't wake once during the night. We were very impressed with her staying on the pillow.

She met my cat Tails and wanted to play with him. Tails wanted to play only if he was doing the chasing. She also met her Grandma last night. I'm sure she'll be very spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa Towns.

We are throwing names around right now. I like Tashley and Travis likes Trixie so we'll just have to see what we compromise on.

Thank you so much for allowing us to adopt such a sweet puppy.

Carrie


We wanted to let you know we adopted Annie about two weeks ago. She is a spaniel shepherd cross. She is doing great, we have had no problems with her at all.

She has slept all night each night and walks with us on the leash every day. She is a loving dog who craves attention. We just wanted to let you know how she is doing and to thank you for saving her.

Thanks again,

A Letter from Shasbry (formerly Blondie)

June 2, 2008

To My Friends at McCook Humane Society:

I am so excited for you to see my pictures. I know my eyes look funny, but my Mom says it is because I have sunshine inside of me.
I have so much to tell you. I am gaining weight now and I was at 9 pounds and now I weight 12 pounds.

My Mom took me to get my haircut and as you can see in my pictures I am quite beautiful. My mom brushes me two times a day. My mom says that I am a Duchess. I am on my big fluffy bed and I sleep on pillows at night not just the bed. Real fluffy pillows. I also have gotten all my shots and I get to go to work with my mom and I help cheer up the patients. The other picture shows me at my mom's office. She is an RN and she runs this unit for people that are on ventilators and they say I cheer them up all the time. They love me and they love to rub my tummy. I love it also. I go on all the car rides with my mom and my kids.

I have also learned lots of tricks. I can sit pretty, shake, lie down, and dance. I get lots of treats and I am really proud of myself. I walk really well on my leash and I go for 2-3 walks a day.

My kids are home for the summer now and I am really excited. My brother, Hunter and I are getting along better. We were fighting a little, but now we play and I am a little spoiled and I seem to win when fighting over the rawhides. Mom makes sure there are two, but I like them both. Mom says I have some sharing problems and we will work on them. I play very nicely with my sister, Sasha who is the house cat. We run and play, but sometimes she hisses at me when she gets tired.

I just wanted to update you and let you know that I appreciate all you did for me and I am very happy in my new home. Take care and I just wanted you to see me all cleaned up with a haircut. (I had bows in my hair, but they fell out, well I pulled them out but I don't want mom to know.)

Love,
Shasbry


Millie & Robert Smith



'Millie' is a long haired Dachshund adopted by Robert and Earnestine Smith in the fall of 2002.

Robert is confined to a wheelchair; Millie is his constant companion. She is well trained and stays in their yard while Robert is working on his wood crafts in his garage.

This is only one of the happy "Forever Homes" that one of our adopted pets has received.
