Thank you Elizabeth
Today I am taking Jesse to the beach. I don't think she has probably
ever been to the ocean, right?? The other woman you met at my house,
Peggy, and her dog, Goldie, are coming with us. We are going to go to
the beach in Davenport (just north of Santa Cruz) and then have lunch at
the Grey Whale Bakery. We will get it to go and eat in our car with
Jesse and Goldie. Maybe we will even see some whales!!
I will take pictures and send some to you.
Jesse loves her daily walks with her new buddy, Smokey (the Husky/Wolf
dog). Smokey is very demonstrative and likes to reach over and give
kisses to Jesse every 20 feet. Jesse accepted the first few, but after
that she tries to move over to avoid excessive smooching! It is so
cute. I have to say that Jesse is extremely intelligent. She seems to
know when a dog is not friendly just by looking at it. She also has a
good instinct for good/bad people. She also watches TV just like my
McNab, Maggie May. Jesse's favorite show is the nature channel. She
really enjoyed watching the show about the walrus and actually sat for
15 minutes right in front of the TV - completely transfixed! When dogs
appear she starts to wine slightly as she wants to join them. She also
really likes basketball.
|Sometimes adopters come back years later and
tell us about their lives with their dogs they love
so much and it just makes us cry with joy: This is
one of those special stories received
You may not remember
me, but we lived in Corte Madera and our
family fostered and then adopted Pixie a JRT
from you in July of 2004. She is a still doing
well and is a wonderful dog and much loved
We left Corte Madera
and moved to Australia in April this year and
currently reside on 5 acres of very lush,
subtropical, rolling green hills. We have
chickens, ducks, a couple of cows, another young
JRT and of course Pixie. Yes Pixie, that Utah
girl, who struggled to find a permanent home,
then relocated to Corte Madera to hike on Mt Tam
, is now living a country/beach life in
Australia. Quarantine was hard on her and us
also, but here we are- thought you might get a
kick out of knowing that one of your pups has
ended up on the other side of the plannet.
Take care "
a short note to let you know how Piper is doing in
her new home with
Tom and Jo in Coeur d Alene, Idaho. We call
her Peanut, Pipe just
didn't seem to fit her.
The first 3 weeks were a little tough for all of
us, Peanut didn't want to use
potty pads and didn't like new people. Slowly but
surely she came around
and is doing quit nicely. She loves to sit with
almost everyone who comes
into the house, does go out now to do her business
and has turned into
a very loving little dog. She does not like the
groomer, so we decided we will only have her
groomed when she needs a cut. We are giving her a
every 2 weeks and she is really very good, she lets
me blow dry her and
snip around her face and ears with no problems.
Peanut has brought so much joy to our life, we love
her and can't think
of life without her.
Sydney we adopted out 9 yrs ago to wonderful mom
Cathy is now 10 yrs old and has a new adopted
sister. Thank you for all the wonderful updates
through the years. Sorry to hear about your
little girls attack by Pit Bull because of unleashed
dog by irresponsible owner. 1,200 in Vet bills
hopefully will be paid for by that owner.
As promised, here is
a “short” bio of Packer’s life with me, from your
assistance with my adoption/rescue of her in (I
believe, about…) mid-May, of 2,000, to “today”.
As you remember, she
and 2 other dogs (one of which I believe was a
“sister”) had evidently been abandoned, and running
wild somewhere in the West Mountain area west of
Utah Lake where people target shoot, and she and her
two sisters were abandoned and being shot at and
scared of people. Her older sister who protected
the two smaller ones, was too aggressive and the
shelter decided to put her down, but the two sisters
were adopted out. You, the lady that found them and
fed them from Payson and Lte Morgan and 3 of his
deputies tracked them down, tranquilized them and
contacted my employer, “Jack G.” with whom you had
placed 2 previous “rescues”, named Pokey, and
Jack felt that the 2
dogs already in his care, were about all he had the
time, and room for, but passed the phone to me.
After a brief “ordeal”, I managed to convince the
powers-that-were, that I was a suitable caretaker
for Packer. As I recall, you met me at the shelter,
and helped me walk her out to my car. There
followed the usual ordeal of spaying, entropian-surgery
on her eyelids, and dew-claw removal. She actually
had THREE dew-claws removed: one on her left
hind-leg, and TWO on her right hind-leg (they
“faced” each other, almost like a Parrot’s beak).
After which she came home with me to the Cedar
Valley Airport, west of Utah Lake. Our first home
was a 20’ travel-trailer, parked at the airport. We
stayed there until late December , when we moved a
few miles south, to an old farmhouse. We
stayed there for almost a year, with her, and Pokey
and Squeaky have free-run over God knows HOW many
acres of open ground. Unfortunately, out house
burned to the ground in the late fall of the next
year. I received a frantic phone call from my boss
(and neighbor), telling me that my home was “going
up in flames!- it’s a total-loss!!”
My only question
was: “WHERE’S my dog??!!” I was told that she was
safe, so I relaxed a little, and drove “home” to
watch the Fire-Dept. use a backhoe to fill in the
hole that was recently my house. Most folks would
consider this to be pretty traumatic, and it WAS.
Looking back……..It was easy to be philosophical: I’d
lost everything but my dog, and my car. I’d like to
make a point of saying that Utah is FILLED with
kind-hearted people! My friends, co-workers, and a
large number of “casual” acquaintances donated
clothes, food, and funds, allowing Packer and I to
move back into a trailer, and “start over”.
We moved out of Utah
in late December of the following year, and landed
in central Colorado, and have been here, ever
since. We’ve “moved up” in the world: and now live
in an “older”, but VERY comfortable RV. We still
live on an airport. I was then, and still am, a
professional skydiver. Packer still, (after 10
years) runs out to meet me, every time I land
my parachute. n the intervening years she has
traveled with me to: Washington, Arizona,
Missouri, Oregon, Colorado, Illinois, daho, New
Mexico, Indiana, OhioUtah, Kansas, Michigan,
Pennsylvania, Wyoming, Nebraska, Washington
DC,Montana, Iowa, Maryland, and Virginia.She’s
gotten her paws wet at Shilshole Bay, on Puget
Sound, in Washington State. She has also gone
swimming with me in the Atlantic Ocean, south of
Virginia Beach, while visiting my son and his f,
amily, last fall in Yorktown, VA.She receives
dog-biscuits at my bank, and my favorite
hardware-store (a VERY dog-friendly establishment! -
which explains WHY its my favorite hardware-store) I
have a VERY good friend, Frances, who still live in
the Seattle area. The day we met, she had her dog
(named Malfunction, a little black
mixed-breed……..it’s a skydiver joke) with her. Mal
went to work w/Frances. Mal went to dinner
w/Frances. Mal went EVERYWHERE w/Frances.
Malfunction passed away the year before last.
Frances said in what would best be described as a
eulogy, that “an abandoned dog had crossed paths
with a stray human”, and that she was not quite sure
who, had taken better care of who. By the luck of
the draw, Packer and I crossed paths at a moment in
time when it could easily be said that we both
needed “somebody”. Sadly, I’ve met a lot of people
who are still waiting for that moment. At any
rate, Denise, Packer and I are forever grateful!
Should you find yourself in Colorado, we’ll STILL be
living at an airport!

Diego, she was rescued from the Orange County
Shelter and is enjoying her foster family very
much. From her wonderful foster mom:
Here is some info you can pass along to your
prospective adopters on Cindy. She is about 15
inches tall from the top of her had to the floor.
He weighs about 10 lbs. She loves kids and
tolerates other dogs. She is very picky. Out of
the seven dogs I have here she only likes one of
them. She stays away from most and prefers to lay
in my bed all day. She is housebroken and uses the
doggy door all day and night if necessary. She
likes to sleep at the top of your head and take
turns sleeping with everyone in the family.
She is settling in very well here and is extremely
happy to see me every day when I come home and
greets everyone by jumping up and down and licking
your hand. She loves my boys and likes to lay with
them while they play video games.
We love her and will be sad when she goes.
December 11,2004 Kathryn in SD adopted Cindy after
Kim did a home visit and found that Cindy would have
the best home with her new Maltese Brother. Thanks
Yeah Great News, Jennifer and her 9 yr old son who

lot of obedience training 3 years ago in our
program, and her puppies that were brought to us by
the family from a little town in Utah that let her
run loose in the street, have all found great homes
and learned obedience and tricks because they are
all very smart like their mother. She is very
striking with her spots. Her coat is short, tortoise
shell colors, and she is really beautiful and
smart. She would make a woman the best companion

WE LOVE LETTERS
From "General Sam
Dunn" Dear Denise,
I would like to
thank you and Save A Dog & Kids Rescue for rescuing me from
the shelter. If I could talk, I would tell you tht I love
my parents Kenneth and Rachelle that you have given me to. I
feel very safe with them. My mother takes me just about
every day for at least a thirty minute walk. I love meeting
new dogs and new friends. People stop and tell mymom how
pretty and sweet I am. We are now Snowbirds, we spend
6months a year in Sandy, Utah, and 6 months a year in St.
Georger, Utah. My parents have three children that are all
grown up and have their own children. I don't know why but
some of them call me little Lassie. My dad Kenneth is
retired and was in the United States Marine, he tells me
that I am a General in the Marines. I hope you like my new
hat that my brother Donald gave me as a gift.
My parents say
every time they look at me, they say a prayer to God,
thanking him for your group SAve A Dog & Kids Rescue and for
you rescuing me. I hope you like my picture. LOve General
Sam Dunn ( waiting for a scanner to show this great 8 x 10
pic of General with his US MArine hat)
writing to let you know that Pokey (Pocahontas) died of
old age April 1st. She was a shar-pei and just the
cutest girl you've ever seen. We adopted her in March
of 2000 and instantly fell in love with her. She was
THE BEST companion and we were very lucky to have her as
a part of our family. Her "Pokey Kisses" and even her
snoring is very much missed. We can't thank you enough
for the endless efforts you have made to save these
wonderful animals and allowing them to enrich our daily
Mike adopted a
shar-pei, lab mix and named her "Packer". She loves to
help us pack our parachutes by laying on them and
slobbering on us. Packer is doing fine - she has Mike
well trained. She sleeps on the sofa or the bed,
whichever she chooses that night. Packer loves to play
but always has time for a treat. Just wanted to let you
know she is much loved and has a good life. Wherever
Mike goes, Packer is by his side. Thanks for rescuing
this puppy from the desert and allowing her in our
lives. ( She was living on West Mountain running scared
with her two sisters being used at target practice until
Save A Dog & Kids and the Utah County Sheriff's
Department saved them)
TOBY I "Toby
is doing great! He completed agility last year & we
continued with his obedience & tricks. He loves his
own kiddie pool that we bought him & when we throw toys
in, he gets them out right away. Rocks are a different
story... he'll go at all day if we let him! He's a
happy guy & we love him! The reason that Tobey is
allowed to go to our jobs with us is b/c he's so
obedient & everyone loves him. He's also a perfect
size. " Dusti in So Cal.

"Rowan( my 9 yr
old daughter) and I were up late last night
cleaning the house. It was funny
explaining to her the concept of "baby
proofing", except that this
baby can jump to the top of the fridge,
bookshelves.. (grin ). Now all the small pieces
are put away and she
understands the need to keep the house safe. We
also went to Petco
and purchased a new cat-house column for the
livingroom, so that
Shaka can jump up and in and be comfortable in
pagoda-type house and look over the livingg
Needless to say, we're excited. Colorado
I'll be getting

"We are very
excited about Tiggerette's arrival. We got her a
very cool litter box called the Booda Hut, it's
twice the size of a regular litter box with
total privacy and little steps that go up
inside. We also ordered her a very nice bed that
provides her privacy as well. We are both
waiting to welcome her home!
Hope your flight goes well!!
All the Best,

5 yr old .N.M. purebred Miniature Poodle(not
Tea Cup or Toy but next step up) needs an
experienced Poodle owner with no kids that is
home to housetrain and obedience train him. His
family that bought him from a breeder 5 yrs ago
did not know how to house, obedience train or
keep him from running away when they left him
home alone outside. This poor little guy also
became too expensive for them to keep up on the
high maintenance of grooming and other
veterinary care costs. We wish breeders would
follow up and teach these families they sell
dogs to what care they need. Thank you Vicki and
Kelsey for fostering him in your Poodle home.

him, thanx Denise, he's gotten two haircuts, and
he loves his baths, he loves to give kisses, he
licks my face, my knee
he is very affectionate, and very vocal,
athletic, he flys, he is beautiful, he sleeps

is sweet and very good disposition. " Ana
Hi! It was really great talking with you, you
are so cool, so very nice and down to earth, and
so bubblly and alive I can't wait to meet you.
I think that you are doing something great for
the kids, the animals, the people. There are
so many abused animals, that need love, and a
second chance to be loved here, there and
everywhere. I like your services idea, I
think that people once again have to be
educated, in your case you know your animals,
you've trained them, socialized them taken care
of them, and you know them, their temperment,
and you match them with that special person who
will love them for ever. That's really cool,
because you are getting an animal that is
healthy, trained, socialized, taken care of ,
loved, where some other rescues don't provide
I want to help you make people here aware of
Denise I don't believe in coincidences, I
think that everything happens for a
finding Shuba, and hitting it off so well with
you, was definitely meant
to be I'm sure that there
is much more to all this.
It's wierd because for some reason I have been
stuck in finding a choc mini
for the longest time I've been checking for
local breeders, and by the
way there are none, and somehow on Feb 26 I had
this thought of adopting, and I
place here in florida, and I had
looked at many poodles but none really
caught my heart until I saw
Shuba, looking at him in his little red sweater,
in the snow, which by the
way I've never seen, and his sad face, I knew
that he was for me.
You know I was in grooming
school, when I saw this teacher walk in with
this beautiful choc mini,
and I wanted him and I walked into the class
late, and she was giving
him away,and I got him, and he was with me for
15 yrs, and I loved him
with all my heart, we had a very special
connection, the night before I
put him to sleep
I spent the whole night holding
him and talking with him, and he was dying,
he started having problems
breathing and I thanked him for being with me,
it was horrible, and yet
we had one last night, in the morning I rushed
him to the vet, and he
went so quickly, he was at peace, and I cried so
much, before during and
after I took pictures of
him, and after, I came home, I heard him cough,
it was so amazing
knew it was him, and I realized that he was with

12 mos. Labrador Retriever mix was bought from a
backyard breeder with an "AKC" Black Lab who does
not know there are dozens of these puppies dying in
the shelter every week. The young man got married
and could not take Rocky with him. His mother loves
the dog who loves everyone but her condo is too
small and she is disabled. She is borrowing our
large carrier and crate training Rocky with chew
bones in the house so he doesn't run out of the yard
anymore, putting weight on him with Nutra Nuggets
and loving him until he finds a new family. He lays
by her side when she comes home from work. He knows
how to sit and stay as you can see this handsome
William for bringing him into your home at Scripps
really well. I'm having some issues with my old
digi camera so the pictures I promised you are
going to be delayed. I will try to snap some
photos with my camcorder. The cats are starting
to come around to him now. He loves all his new
toys and his bed. He is so well behaved it's

very loving and responsible special home. He

you so much for all that you do. Yours is the finest
organization dedicated to animal rescue that I’ve ever
seen. You have certainly blessed us with the most wonderful
dog, our Buddah. I wanted to send you the pics (Click here
to see all the Bassett Puppies
www.saveadogandkids.org/bassettnewhomes.htm), but also
was going to ask about another dog. We really want to get a
companion for Buddah, not because he is lonely (someone is
home just about all the time!), but he is just so social.
He has a friend that comes over to play and at the puppy
class he was just so wonderful with all the other dogs, both
large and small! When we first started thinking about the
idea, I immediately went to your site to see what other
loves you had. That little Michael Jordan is just so very
precious!! I’m sorry that his trip to California did not
work out. We were looking for someone that is similar in
size or smaller than Buddah and his face just keeps coming
to mind." Sharon Yeah
Michael Jordan will have the best family and brother to
play, sleep, go to class and cuddle with.

Weimaraner/Choc Lab F is loving and unfortunately her family
cannot keep her. They have been keeping her outside in the cold
here in Utah and she runs away. Please help us help her come
inside into a loving foster or permanent home.
She is shy, needs
housetraining and to gain weight. But she is sweet, smart and
loving. She wants to play once she trusts other dogs.
The family that had
kept her outside 24 hrs a day all winter and skinny has decided
to keep Coco. We are very sad for Coco.
