Bubbles

This is Bubbles. Or “Boop” or “Bubbly Butt” or any other variation that comes to mind, and he answers to every single one of them. He is an 8-year-old Lhasa Apso with a lot of attitude in a tiny body. We never had a pet before him and nobody in our household can even remember what life was like without him. I shouldn’t even call him a pet, as he is basically a family member. His favorite snack consists of romaine lettuce at 3am, and when we get back from a walk, there'd better be a piece of banana ready and waiting or he’ll be sitting in the kitchen all night. His favorite pastime is sleeping upside down and he...



Lilley + Mr. London

Our pups are our life- our kids! The unconditional love they give is nothing short of amazing. When you are in the saddest of moods, they can cheer you up in one moment with just their excitement to see you! Our oldest pup, Lilley, is a sweet wonderful girl, and will cuddle up to you all day and night; but also loves to run, and pull, and adventure outside! Our newest baby is Mr. London, and he is as sweet as can be. He is also extra special to us because my husband gave him to me during our vows at our wedding! I am a singer/songwriter and one song I wrote had the lyrics, "I want to help something...



ARGUS

Meet Argus, or "sweet boy"; as I like to call him! Argus is a 1 & 1/2 year old Aussie, that was adopted by my family about two months ago.  We were looking for a new companion for our Corgi, Ruby; after we had to put her friend Sally to sleep.  Ruby was very lonely, but luckily we found Argus who needed a home with another dog!  He gets along well with other dogs, but is very freighted by other people.  In an effort to socialize him we go on long walks or runs around the neighborhood! I like to run 5Ks and 10Ks, so I gained a great running partner! Argus has made a wonderful addition to our family!...



Fletcher

​This is Fletcher. He is a working dog- he doesn't herd cattle or sheep but he does work in an office everyday. When we welcomed Fletcher into our lives we knew that Border Collies were smart, but we had no idea how smart!  Fletcher knows everyone's name in the office and has no problem delivering interoffice correspondence and mail  (albeit with a small amount of slobber).   He doesn't collect a paycheck but instead his reward is playing ball or frisbee with each person he sees.  The office atmosphere is so much better with him around - Everyone is just a little more cheerful and a lot more chill. He amazes me daily and I'm so thankful for him!  ...



CHARLIE

Charlie came to us when he was 2 months old.  We had no experience raising a puppy. PATIENCE became our biggest lesson.  But learning to communicate with him become our biggest challenge.  Understand your pup's personality - no dogs are alike!  Funny things we learned about Charlie: He loves to play with toys, but only when they have a squeaker;  He loves water, but only when it's cold; He loves to swim, but hates waves;  He surprisingly loves training exercises, but only when the reward is digestible; He loves nothing more than being with his daddies, but...there is no but. -Matt and Mario, Charlie's Dads
