Happy Tails Update: Sydney and Hootie

Posted: July 3, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Hi guys,

Wanted to let you know how the two babies are settling in at their new home! They are doing so well, they both are so affectionate and quick learners. They learned how to use the pet stairs to the bed after only a couple of tries. (Of course they sleep on the bed, they didn’t give me a choice!)


Sid is especially sweet and cuddly. He loves to be held like a baby, tucking his head under my chin. Sucky Sidney is not too fond of walks yet, he wants mommy to carry him and he closes his eyes as we’re walking!


Hootie has a lot more confidence and she is great on a leash. She seems to mother Sid a bit too. But her favourite thing in the whole world is – FOOD! The little Hoover is always begging and sniffing around the kitchen lol.

They just went to the “spa” and are all ready for summer and mommy is spoiling them a little bit! They are really such great dogs, I am so happy the three of us found each other.

    Thank you Tara!

    They waited a long time for you to come to them but I’m sure it was worth that wait.

    How wonderful to see them happy in their new home & having their own very special person to wait on them. Sidney was just starting to hang out at the barn & I admit I miss him..however Jeda & Yoda have become true barn buddies & hang there all day …waiting for time in the Memorial Garden .

    Thanks for the update & hope to keep hearing all about their antics

    Hi! I don’t see saints name on the Animal Rescue site challenge that starts today. Maybe I typed the name wrong. Please advise if you’re in it. Thx

  • Carol says

    we should be there and we really need the money so hopefully we are…try S.A.I.N.T.S.

    i just voted sharon so we are there.

  • diane says

    So happy for these two babies!

  • Sharon says

    Yep! You’re right, Carol. I voted.

  • Tara says

    Ashley you did a fine job with their coats I thought. I just had them shaved down for summer. And I really do know my dog’s name, its SYDney not Sidney; I must have been daydreaming about Sidney Crosby again lol

  • Zoe says

    Haha that’s awesome.

    So glad these two ended up in such a great home! They deserve it… previous things that fell through, everything happens for a reason!

    I’m away this weekend so I’ll see everyone the next. Oh and Carol it looks like we CAN take our car across, just a little more difficult… but it will be worth it Sugar will have so much fun coming along. I didn’t want her to think I left her! Her insulin should be okay on ice for the 2-3 hour drive?
