Samson Adoption

Wed, 6 Oct 1999 15:43:55 EDT - from Nancy

Mag,

Howdy down under! Hope all is well with you and yours. Give Frodo & Kirra hugs and slurps from this side of the world.

I have attached a small collage of pictures for the web page from when we met Samson's new Mom, Tina. She was very excited to meet him and was going right to the Petsmart to buy him all kinds of goodies. He is a really friendly guy, with lots of energy and I think they will be very happy together.

Bleu--IMPS Rescue from NJ to GA

Mon, 18 Oct 1999 21:18:59 EDT - from Mary

Just want to say THANK YOU to all the people that helped me get my partner in crime. Had three phone numbers that did small breed rescue in the state. I left messages on two machines but lucked out when I talked with a lady (home sick from work that day) who did rescue with this group. She pointed me toward this group. My Little Boy Bleu is great. He thinks so and so do I. Keep praying for us because he needs a lot of work with social skills. It is not so much men or strangers as sudden movement that gets us nailed. Last time he bite me he knew he had done wrong as soon as he bit me. He knew he was safe even after a lot of #$$#$$#^&& words. I threatened to pull all his teeth out. He just licked the some of the blood off my hand and rolled over for tummy rub. He knew I was all talk. Bleu is 7 years old and by no means too old to adopt. Hyper is a common word used to describe a puppy or young dog of this breed. After 10 days I cannot imagine a sane person (do not get upset with me) having more than one of these busy and nosy children. My other dogs think he is crazy when he runs through the house with his sock. We call it the 100 yard dash and replay. Special thanks to everyone that directly helped with my adoption. Also thanks to those that helped indirectly and everyone else for their dedication and prayers.

Mary,

This NJ helper just has to smile every time she hears from you!

The Bleu-man was soooooooooooooo very lucky to find his forever home with you. Thanks again and again and again for opening your heart and home to him. You are one special lady!

The "sock dash" was a remarkable site. He is a very spry seven-year-old! My Ebony (who's only one yr.) just couldn't understand why he only wanted to play alone!

I do miss my little lap warmer! But I'm so very glad he's happy at last! Now he gets to learn what it's really like to be part of a family and have unconditional love *returned.*

So.......when do we get to see some pics?

Give some smooches to Little Boy Bleu for me! And tell him his "step sisters" Ebony & Winnie send face licks and little stumpy tail wags too.

Best to you,

Donna

p.s. I'm attaching a pic (it's actually two shots, but one file) of Bleu taken this summer when he was in foster care w/ Linda (a.k.a. Doolittle) for Mag to post to the site. They aren't the best...but at least everyone will get to see how cute this little guy is! Mary, these are the same pics I already sent to you.

Dobie Adoption & Photo

Mon, 8 Nov 1999 19:58:43 -0500 - from Nancy & Vince

Dobie

Mag,

Attached is a photo of Dobie, who was found as a stray dog in West Hampton Beach. He was adopted by a family in Peekskill, NY. Dobie was the boy who was placed once and he terrorized the family boxer by taking all his toys and making him sit in a closet. We was later placed in his forever home in Peekskill.

Photo of Gypsy

Sun, 14 Nov 1999 20:20:48 EST - from Cheryl

Gypsy

I was not sure where to send this! I know for Mag's pages to send it to her & I know Liz used to do the actual IMPS pages so sent it there also. One way or another I am sure Gypsy will find her way to the pages! This was the best picture I got to send, I have 4 others where I was trying to get her standing near the book but she was worried about the whole affair & looked like a massive roach back (they often do when trying to get them to stand when not used to it) so did not send those. I would say she is about average size, neither super tiny but not at all large. My best guess as to weight is between 6 & 7 pounds & probably about 11 inches tall. My vet thought she was between 5 & 7 months old, based on my own dogs, judging by her baby/permenent teeth ratio I would go closer to the 7 months mark. Of course I am familiar with what my own dogs & their lines tend to look like at a given age so could be mistaken since I have no idea what is behind her & suppose different dogs mature faster or slower than others. She is a sweet little thing, just very frightened right now & my vet indicated there are lots of dogs who lead a very wonderful life without sight so I hope we can find just the right place for this "special needs" girl! That's all for now. Have a great day!!

IMPS Party in NJ!

Fri, 26 Nov 1999 21:50:16 -0500 - from Nancy

Mag,

Hi, here are the pictures I took of our week of visitors. Being a typical dog owner, I didn't take too many of the humans, but there are a few of those thrown in. I will send them in seperate e-mails.

The first is one of myself, Wendy, Petie and Donna in front of our fireplace and the other is of Vince with 6 of the 9 dogs all sleeping on his lap.

4Ladies

This group is from the dog show. That is Donna on Vince's lap. Maybe I should keep a better watch of those two during her next visit...... The rest are Wendy and her dogs struting their stuff!

Dogshow

These are from the two visits to Atlantic City. Big Gamblers and big winners...... (NOT)

Casino

These are all dog shots!!

DogMania

These are dog shots and some Dawn photos. Isn't that Lucy just the sweetest thing you ever did see!!!

Adopt-a-thon at the Giamusso's

Sun, 5 Dec 1999 17:56:16 -0500 - from Nancy

Mag,

Attached are the photos from todays adoptions. The first one are some group shots from all the dogs running around. Tara took some others, so I hope hers come out better.

Adopt-a-thon at the Giamusso's

The second are of Kim Sawyer and her boyfriend (sorry I am so bad with remembering names, forgive me) with JoJo and Moe in the crate. Again I hope Tara got some better photos of Moe. He was really handsome. Iris Sable did a great job getting him in shape. The other is Bobbi Jo Gardiner and her husband with Star.

Adopt-a-thon at the Giamusso's

If you remember, Star needs hip surgery and Bobbi Jo has agreed to pay for 75% of the surgery, at whopping $300.00. It's really heartwarming when people will put out that much for a rescue.

So kudo's to the New Jersey Crew. They did great work today.

More Pics from Donna

Tue, 7 Dec 1999 13:27:18 EST - from Donna

Mag ... your job is never done! Here are some more pics for the site, and Ebony & Winnie's pic for the Holiday page.

The first pic is Max & CeCe. They're the brother/sister that moved from NJ to MN in November. Aren't they sweet?!

Max,CeCe

The second pic is of (l to r) Max, CeCe, Star, Winnie and Ebony. These are the dogs of "How to Sleep With Five Min Pins" fame!

Max,CeCe,Star,Winnie,Ebony

The remaining two are Ebony and Winnie's 1999 Christmas pictures. I had a devil of a time trying to get the color right. The pictures scanned much darker than the originals. Hope they'll turn out ok on the site. If you have any problems, let me know and I'll re-scan.

Click HERE to see the pics.

Happy Holidays,

Donna, Ebony & Winnie

Puppy Mill Closing - Dog Photos

Sun, 19 Dec 1999 11:20:08 -0500 - from Nancy

Mag,

Attached is the first of 3 sets of photos of the dogs we picked up from Rie and Marilyn in Ohio. These are of Rie and the pregnant blue bitch, ready to have her pups any day now.

It is an honor to know both Rie and Marilyn and they deserve many thanks for all they do, not only for this puppy mill closing, but for all 34 other dogs they have living with t

Rie and Momma Blue

These photos are of the two puppies that Vince & I brought home with us. They, thankfully are healthy 8 week olds.

Rie & Melanie named the blue Tess (after Tess on Touched by an Angel) and the fawn Peabo, but we changed it to Peanut (Vince once had a chi named Peanut) They are both lively minpin puppies and get along great with Lucy and the crew.

Tess and Peanut

This group is of the two fawn bitches that we brought home. We named them Bambi (obviously due to fawn color) and Xena (after the TV show and how strong she is, etc) They are really sweet, and I can't wait until they are no longer contagious so we can really show them some loving.

Xena and Bambi

Pictures of Lulu and the crew

Sun, 19 Dec 1999 11:25:23 -0500 - from Nancy

Mag,

This is a group of pictures from when Donna brought us the extra crates. She brought her girls and Lulu along with her. I finally was able to sneak a couple shots of Lulu, so if you could add her picture to the IMPS web site, I'd appreciate it. (Of course I had to throw a Lucy-Nikki cute picture in there also.

Lulu and the Crew

Thanks Mag, for all you do.

Peanut and his forever home

Wed, 22 Dec 1999 06:40:53 -0500 - from Nancy

Peanut,Chuck

Well, much to my sadness, Peanut left here tonight for (hopefully) his forever home. The only way he will be back is if something happens in the courts, but we know that Rie will make sure that doesn't happen.

Peanut was the fawn colored puppy rescued from the Perry County Ohio Puppy Mill that was closed down on December 14, 1999.

He will spend the rest of his life with Chuck & Linda Sheppard in Mullica Hill, NJ and since they also work with me, I will be able to get daily updates on how he is doing.

So it will be a Happy Holiday, not only for Chuck & Linda, but for Peanut too.

New Photos of Xena & Bambi

Sun, 2 Jan 2000 18:50:39 -0500 - from Nancy

Xena,Bambi

Hi Mag,

We have been having really unseasonably warm weather here the last few days, so I have been able to put my hairless wonders outside for some play time. I took some pictures and thought I would share them with everyone.

They are both doing really good. Sorry to say that they are still quaranteed to the ex pen in the basement, but at least they aren't contagious to humans any longer. We look forward to when we can let them mix up with our crew, and then to when we can place them in a loving home.

Have a safe day.

Then & Now of Bambi

Sat, 29 Jan 2000 16:54:07 -0500 - from Nancy

Someone asked about Bambi's hair. I have attached two photo's the top one is when we got her, she only had a patch on her shoulder, was hairless everywhere else. Bambi then..
The second one is of her today. Not the best, but you can see she has hair on her body, and legs, and you can see the chocolate markings coming out on her face and shoulders.

Tess's Family

Tue, 8 Feb 2000 08:21:10 EST - from Donna

Tess and Family This is a little late in coming ... but here's a picture of puppy Tess (one of the Ohio puppy mill rescues) with her new family. She's sporting her fashionable new polar fleece coat. Little Tessie is doing great -- and keeping her family on their toes. The other day she did the infamous Min Pin "dart out the front door." Meanwhile she has to be coaxed out the back door into the yard for potty duties because it's cold out there! I said "Welcome to Min Pin ownership." She's got the housebreaking thing just about down pat, though; and her "mom" is looking into obedience classes. (Little Miss Tess has quite an attitude!) I've asked for more pictures of her at home, and will post them when/if I get them. (Sue, the mom, is notorious for taking pictures but not getting the film developed... LOL!)

Enjoy!

Well two of our three fosters went home today. This picture is of Max 200 and his new mom Camille Williams. Max will have a brother named Scott who is 9 months old. This big boy, believe it or not is only 5 months old. The guy bought him from a Mall Pet Store for $800. But he is a sweet kid. Vince said if we didn't have 5 he would have kept this one. VBG.

Vince & I drove to Rochester today to take Xena to meet her new family. Hannah & Barry Sawyer will be her new Mom and Dad and I think she is a very lucky girl. I can tell already that she will be spoiled rotten, just like she should be. She will have a brother named Jackson.

I have to admit Vince & I both cried like babies when we were saying goodbye. We will both miss her very much, but she will be very happy.

IMPS New Jersey - Rescue pics

Tue, 28 Mar 2000 14:48:21 EST - from Donna

Hi Mag!

Here are some pics for the site.

Karen,Lulu2  
 
The first is of Karen Weil and Lulu2. Lulu2 has settled right in with Karen and hubby Neal. They are doing well, and Karen is bragging about her new baby to everyone! Rumor has it her mom (in Las Vegas) now wants to adopt an IMPS dog!
Luke  
 
The second pic is of Luke. He'll be going to his "Forever Home" this Saturday. Luke is moving to Vermont to live with Margaret Goodwin, hubby Gary and family. He's going to have lots of doggy sisters when he gets there.
Dancer  
 
Picture three is the latest NJ rescue, Dancer. He's a gorgeous chocolate puppy -- and he's a real firecracker! Poor little guy was abandoned by his former owners -- I don't know how they did it...he's too cute for words.
Sebastian,Dancer  
 
The last pic is of my two foster boys Dancer and Sebastian. Sebastian is still working on his fear of men. He's enrolled in obedience class, and doing very well. Two boys under a year in the same house....I'll need a vacation when it's over!

Thanks for posting them. (Can you also add Dancer's pic to the IMPS page.)

Dancer

Mag,

This is Dancer and his new dad Ron Moser. Dancer is the little boy that was left tied to a tree in front of a shelter in Clifton, NJ. He was a really good boy when he stayed here for the night and I think he will be very happy in his new home.

East Coast's "Action Jaxon"

Fri, 7 Apr 2000 15:10:45 -0400 - from Patty

Jax

Jax was living in Queens, NY outdoors tied to a plastic var-kennel until December of 1999. When the owner was confronted about her care of the dog, she gave it up. The foster family really couldn't keep the dog so he came to live with me "temporarily." I found out quickly I am not cut out for foster care. After just a few weeks, I knew I couldn't part with him. I am still hoping that over time he will learn not to overreact to everything. He is already learning some obedience and agility..
