Lucy, an Italian GreyhoundLucy, an Italian Greyhound
- The house felt empty without a rescue in residence (for the first time in 15 years). This little girl from the SSPCA, fit the bill. Skin and bones when we adopted her, she is now sleek, shiny and full of mischief - a perfect fit.

Ricky, a Ricky, a "WhoKnowsWhat" Terrier
- A little Terrier mix that needed a home. Affectionate, sociable, with an adorable expression and a temperament to die for. A phone call resulting in acquienscence. A 3 hour drive and Ricky was home.

Ralph, a ChihuahuaRalph, a Chihuahua
- Somewhere between 10 and 14 years old at the time of his adoption in 2010, Ralph was almost blind with crippled front legs. He was undoubtedly in pain and had started snapping at everyone who tried to handle him at the local SPCA. Everyone but me.
