In The Lobby

An unplanned reunion occurred in our lobby just moments ago.  Two alumni were here for their check-ups and wanted to say hi!  

DaVinci the Shih Tzu is having a blast with his mom.  He's taken the subway several times now and is the friendliest dog on the block!  

And Wendy the Yorkie is absolutely in love with her mom and vice versa.  They can't believe how fast time flies and that it was already a year ago that they found each other.

We're glad to see that Gerard is acting like himself in his new home!

Little Holly's Big World


I just got back the images from my second photo shoot with Holly, this one themed "Barkfest At Sniffany's" and I had to share! Thank you so much again for pairing us up, we truly are the best of friends!

It's been a few years now since we adopted "Diamond," the chubby Chihuahua dumped by her previous owners of 8 years.  Bonnie facilitated the adoption, so we thought she and some of the other volunteers might get a kick out of seeing some update photos.  

We gave her a new name to go with her new life, and she is now known as "Chili."  When we first brought her home, her fitness level was poor and she lumbered along at a snails pace.  Walks were a slow process, and she couldnt even make it around the block without needing carried home.  It took some time, but after several months of the right food and some exercise, she's a whole new dog! She loves to walk for miles, and runs all over the house when she's excited to go out.  Her transformation really surpassed our expectations.   

We couldn't love her more and feel so lucky to have her!

* The first picture is from the day we brought her home.  The picture of her running across the sand is how she looks today :)

Six years ago Christmas Chelsea and I adopted each other. She was 8 years
old. It's been a perfect match. She loves my grandchildren who play ball
with her, and she's patient with the young ones who drape themselves over
We walk in Central Park several times a week.
This photo shows her "OK whatever you say face" as I take her photo with May
cherry blossoms. She makes everyone smile.
Thank you Humane Society of New York.

Toby was our unofficial mascot, attending all sorts of event from Yappy Hours to Galas.  Everyone knew him.  He is a go-with-the-flow kinda dude and enjoyed meeting people from all over the world at these events.  In 2013, one of those events was the Vaute Couture Fashion Week show, where we met J.  

J said she would be in touch and sure enough, the next day we heard from her.  J met all the criteria and had another dog so as long as Toby was ok with his potential new brother, it would be a go.  Sure enough, Toby was going home!  

We've kept in touch and knew they have been having a blast as a family.  They go on adventures all the time and just sent us this photo.  The thought of Toby frolicking on a beach just makes us smile ear to ear.  We are SO thrilled that Toby found this amazing family and hope you enjoy his update as much as we did.  

We love you Toby, you little beach bum!
