Jewel,Cassidy

Hi:

I just wanted to share with everyone the sweet little girl I received about two weeks ago, thanks to IMPS. A special thanks to Petie and Linda who really made my 30th birthday when they called and said that they had a 1yr. old female in my area needing a new home. What a gift she is...she is a little lovebug. She wants to be in my lap all the time and her my other minpin Cassidy are getting along great! I've attached a picture of the two of them and you can really see the size difference. He's a whopping 15lbs. and she is only 7lbs. Her name is certainly appropriate, she is quite a Jewel! Thanks again to Petie and Linda for a job well done.

Thanks,
Theresa

MD - Pics of Lexi

Thu, 24 Aug 2000 12:18:10 -0400 - from Carrie, via Petie

Mag this is little Lexi who had 4 Imps homes before we found her the perfect one with Carrie Lurz in MD


Lexi

I know it has taken me forever, but here they are. I have some more being developed, but some is better than none. Now - you must take not to the baby who is not on the sofa and the queen baby who is on the sofa!!!! I am hoping to get pictures of her while she is under the covers with her head on my pillow and sleeping (I swear - if I did not know better, I'd say she is pure human and no canine :) ).

Lexi

Hope you all can see them!!!

Talk to you soon.

Max,Logan

Mag, this was the dog named Munsey/Buttons now named Logan.the small one in the picture..I'd also like to mention that this lady had been on the waiting list since Dec 99 so it pays to use old homes and they do eventually get a dog :-)
Petie


From Logan's new Mom, Debbie:

Hi just got home we were out most of the day to friends house and my son was showing off his new dog, every thing is ok so far i will e-mail you tomarrow ,and fill you in more .He knows nothing and dont liston to you when you call him, Mellisa said he got out and kept on running but they got him back. Max is scarred of him - its funny, they play good together in the yard, in the long run i think the new one will be the boss .I think that he thinks Max is his mom its so funny. They both are asleep on my bed now. I wish i had some film to take a picture of them to send to you they are so cute, he is so tiny conpare to Max. Thank you so much for keeping my name on file.

Thank you.

General Johnson

Hi Mag:

Here's a picture of our "little" mini - he is not quite 6 pounds! General Johnson is affectionately called "John John Peebody Johnson" because he is so prolific! John is a very beloved member of his family that includes 9 cats, an English Setter and maybe, just maybe, a new Min Pin named Mickey. I am sending a pic of Mickey too.

Maybe you can add our little stars. Heather and Karen

Mag,

Attached a pictures of my girl--Baba, the incomperable Czarina.

Hope this works,

PS This is the first time I've done this & it's pain in the a**. The files were so big I had to learn how to crop them to even get them to attach in less that an hour or so.

March for Mutts

Sat, 5 May 2001 14:11:22 -0400 - from Heather

March for Mutts, DC

Hi Petie and Mag:

Thought you would be proud of Melissa Jones, her cousin and mother and nephew and me - we marched on behalf of the District of Columbia Shelter today representing IMPS. We were the only rescue organization there! We had our new banner, a "protest sign", Elvis MinPin who is a webber waiting for a new home and my little Johnson marching with us.

The officials even asked me to speak on behalf of the shelter and our good relationship with it. Linda couldn't be with us today because she was having minor surgery. I did the best I could and even the dogs barked at the end.

There were about 50 dogs present and about 75 people. We are all concerned that they are selling out to an inexperienced money-minded outfit to run the DC shelter. And they have cut the budget about in half so we felt it necessary to be there.

Aubrey couldn't be with us either because she was transporting a dog. Donna, Barbara and the rest of us were all fostering. Betty was doing a cocker rescue today. You should be very proud of your Mid-Atlantic IMPS volunteers.

Here is a picture - maybe this should go on the newsletter - Melissa Jones and her cousin are holding our banner. Elvis is the black and rust MinPin from the web and the tiny chocolate MinPin is my first one, Johnson. BTW, we think we will make the Washington Post too. If we do, we will send you a hard copy.

Lovingly for the doglets!

Heather

Pictures from Linda

Fri, 25 May 2001 08:12:39 -0400 - from Linda

Mag,

I have absolutely no idea how to send these separately and wanted to ask you if you would mind taking the write ups and putting them with the pictures that I indicate. Sorry! I know you have enough to do, but wanted so much for IMPSTERS to see Lena, Fendi and Angel.


Lena

Lena

Thought everyone might be interested to see Lena. Lena was the old girl that was left at a New Jersey Shelter in a box. Donna, NJ, took her in and I was blessed and lucky enough to have the honor of Lena spending her last days with me. Its been a little over a year -- this grand lady has added so much to my life. She loves me fiercely, even though, at times she is terrified when I go to pick her up -- I don't know what happened to her in a former life, but she is terrified if you reach over her head to pick her up. She is also scared of other people. Lena has an enlarged heart. Approximately 6 months ago, my vet told me every week I have with her is a blessing. She is my miracle lady, 3 different meds a day and I carry her everywhere in her purple blanki that her Aunt Lynn made (don't tell Gissy). If I leave the room and she can't follow she fusses by barking til I come pick her up. She sleeps up at my neck every night, we get up a minimum of once a night to go outside, and when I'm sitting down, she is right next to me. She has no teeth and god help the other 5 dogs if they try to get near me -- she is in their faces! Everyday when I come home from work, I listen (among all the dogs greeting me) for that "little arf" from her ex-pen, telling me that she has made it through another day -- this little 4 lb. lady has a great big piece my heart -- I hope that I in some way, have made up a little for her former life -- because she has added sooooo much to my life. Lena is what makes this organization so worthwhile

Lena

Fendi

Fendi

This is the Princess Fendi, that Dee and KoKo took in and Chuck Hazen bought east for me. Fendi is my little Princess, has full run of the house, goes to obedience and all my natural horsemanship clinics. She helped me get over the loss of my Rambo, as she too is special. I feel like she has been with me forever! Plus, she is the prettiest IMPS Rescue dog there will ever be!


Angel

Angel

Angel was an owner give up, wasn't even listed on our webesite, but went to Kori Twiggs who adopted Bizzy -- she was the sweetiest smart girl -- Thought everyone would enjoy seeing this gorgeous girl -- and she went to the best home ever!

Angel

Colonel Johnson

Colonel Johnson

This is volunteer Heather's tiny little boy Colonel Johnson -- who now has two IMPS brothers, Mickey and Riche. As a matter of fact, we have to be veeeeerrrry careful when Heather transports dogs as she tends to hog them all!

Pics of Zena

Thu, 30 Aug 2001 10:49:06 -0400 - from Rick

Zena

Hi Mag,

This is a little 4 year old girl I pulled out of the shelter yesterday. She is currently at the clinic undergoing spaying, treatment for a bad running lumpy thing on her right rear ankle and of course will get all her shots and heart worm tested.

I will be turning her over to Linda after she recovers from all of this as I have a 13 year old owner give up named Suki coming to live with us forever on the 13th of September.

Regards
Rick

Autumn in her new home

Sat, 27 Oct 2001 15:20:04 -0400 - from Heather

ADOPTION DAY....

Well, I think the adoption of Jessebelle is a definite keeper. The entire family was there. The mom came out of the car first, then dad but he stood back a bit. Lou Ann held Jessebelle and scratched her ears. Then Dad patted her head. After we talked a minute or too, the kids one at a time came out of the car. They approached Jessebelle very slowly (I couldn't believe their maturity) and held their closed hands out to her to sniff. She accepted them -- and then went off to explore the parking lot on the leash. (don't panic - there is no one in this huge parking lot - it is west of the Burger King and is empty!)

Then they brought out Mr. Bentley who looks exactly like Jessebelle - just an inch taller. They make a gorgeous matched couple! They both even have the black mask extending in a point under their eyes almost exactly the same! And to make it funnier, Melissa, guess what color leash they bought for her? Yup, purple just like the collar you had on Jesse!

We had a great visit, went over the 2 week trial, but they are convinced Jessebelle will do just fine. They even are naming her Autumn! She pooped and peeped on command - the poop was very normal - not green, orange or runny! Whoopie! (jeesh, sick person that I am excited about a dog's poop!) They understand about her medicine and asked me twice so they wouldn't mis-administer.

Anyway, Karen and I were more than impressed. The funny part was when itwas time to get in our cars, Autumn jumped in the back seat with the kids and Mr. Bentley followed - Autumn sat on the 9 year old girl Hillary and Bentley sat on the 7 year old boy Lucas! Not one look back - she was home!

So, wanted to let you all know how well it went. I don't think we have to worry about Jesse! Melissa - thank you for all you did for this little one and you too, Betty. Again, what a team!

Lovingly for the doglets, heather

Autumn's new family

Good Morning everyone!!

I just wanted to give you an update on Ms. Autumn. I took her to Dr. Gary yesterday and she checked out well. She got her new heartworm medicine and is still on her other. She is such a love. Her and Mr. Bentley are getting along really well. Now they will play together and run through the house like kids. We are still teaching her to sit it's going slow but she knows her name now.

I wanted to show you guys a picture that was taken of us. I think you can tell that she is happy and has found a good home for life!!

Thank you all for allowing her to come and by my new baby.

Take care and Heather I got your package yesterday and will call you on some of the items.

Thanks
Lou Ellen

Lena...

Tue, 19 Feb 2002 18:33:18 -0500 - from Linda

Lena

Hi Mag,

I'm sure you have heard that I lost my little lady Lena on February 9. Its taken me this long to be able to write about her. Thought you might put this on our site -- to me, she is the poster furkid for what we do for these dogs. I just wanted everyone to see her.

Her little house she is in -- she loved. It must have made her feel secure -- that is where she stayed while I was at work -- I would come home and call her and she would come tottering out, her little nub going as much as it could, especially if she thought she was going to eat or have her bit of snausages.

She was a trooper right up to the end and would have kept trying -- on Friday night, I had her on my lap sitting at the kitchen counter and I was feeding her bits of cooked turkey, even though she had already had a bowlful of IIAMS and her 6:00 p.m. snack of a bit of snausage. When she got through eating, she was doing her usual, licking her paws and fussing to herself, she talked all the time. I noticed that she sounded congested and thought maybe she had eaten her turkey too quickly, but Saturday morning when I fed her she was even more congested, even though she ate every bit of her breakfast. I called my vet and he said bring her in, I knew what was coming, as she had a very enlarged heart -- he told me that he could increase her lasix, but it would only buy her days, she had already surpassed his first prognosis, November of 2000 -- I told him that she had apparently struggled for most of her life until she came to live with me what would have been 2 years ago this April, and I wasn't about to let her go out of this world struggling.

Just please God, let her know that I did what I could do for her, I tried real hard to make up for the life she msut have had before finding IMPS -- I carried her everywhere, she slept with me everynight, she read the Sunday papers with me and helped me do my hair and put my makeup on every morning, curled up in her blanki, licking her paws and fussing at anything living thing that came close to me. She spent 2 Thanksgivings and 2 Christmases with me.

Lena showed me to stop and smell the roses -- so Lena-Beana -- may you always have a big bowl of IAMS dog food and snausages in front of you, and may you be able to breath freely and run about with my Rambo on those little maybe inch long legs of yours.

And even though I was only blessed to know you past your prime: in the words of Albert Payson Terhune: today a pup; tomorrow at life's prime; then old and fragile; --dead at fourteen (15 or 16). At best a MEAGRE LITTLE INCH OF TIME --

and in the song of Garth Brooks: Lena, "I could have missed the pain, but I would have missed the dance"

Till we meet again, my little dear dear old friend.

Your Mom, Linda

Hi Heather!!!

Please find attached a few pictures of Riley (formally Timmy) and his new Mommy and brothers. Riley has been a refreshing addition to our household and he seems to have really taken to Chip.

They are constantly wrestling around and playing. Riley is a tank but he is, surprisingly, very gentle with the smaller Chip. Jack, well, he's a Basenji. He ignores them both :)
Have a great day!!

Chester's New Forever Home

Mon, 24 Jun 2002 08:47:18 -0400 - from Vicki

Chester and his new family

Mag,

We are quite excited that Chester "Love Puppy" has found his forever home!

It has been a long haul for him. Our Chester was a stray who was hit by a car and left to die. It was the good folks at the SPCA (Virginia) who performed the delicate surgeries to put him back together. Our wonderful RC, Heather, personally nursed him back to health and chose this wonderful family for him.

When I took Chester to meet his new people, his tail never stopped wagging! He has been blessed with TWO moms Vilma and Michelle, a big fuzzy brother......... and the biggest yard ever! Life is good once again.

I'd like to thank all of those people who have made it possible for me to do such rewarding work. Chester was my first foster and the experience was heart touching.
