Being in New York City has it's advantages when it comes to exposure for our adoption animals. We are very fortunate to get some great opportunities. In one such case, we were invited to a certain news channel with a bunch of dogs to help them celebrate Take Your Dog To Work Day.
One of the dogs that came with us was Little Man and the stars aligned that day - an employee there saw him, went through our adoption process, and it all worked out! He recently shared an update on his blog, Daddy Knows Less, and we wanted to share it with you!
For some laughs and perhaps some tears (OK, we cried!), please go ahead and read all about Little Man, A.K.A. Matey, and his new life here: http://daddyknowsless.blogspot.com/2013/04/dude-looks-like-matey.html
We wish him & Luna and his new family the best and can't say how much we enjoyed reading this!

Larry continues to do well in his new home. He is really starting to interact with me more. He has yet to win over his little sister, Xena, but he will get there! He loves his pillow on the window sill a lot, and has been sunbathing there all weekend!
Thank you for taking such good care of Larry!
We are having a great time in his new home.

It was 8 years ago today that we adopted "Spencer" from the Humane Society on 59th St. Since then he has spent every day chasing deer, geese and squirrels and just about anything that threatens his domain. He has been a blessing and I am happy to say that contrary to what the dog psychiatrist warned when we adopted him, he has become the most loving and affectionate dog we've ever had. Below is a shot after a day of patrolling the farm. He is the king of Doodletown Farm, our protector and our great friend.
We can never thank you enough for putting us together eight years ago.

Hi there -
We just wanted to drop a quick note and let you know how much we have been enjoying our new furry feline addition, Charley since we adopted him in January! He is one of the friendliest, smartest cats that I've had the pleasure of knowing. He's more like a dog sometimes than a cat by the way he retrieves/fetches items (especially the things he likes to play with) and his ultra friendly social personality. He always likes to be in the middle of the action which says a lot because we have an almost 2 year old boy who can get a little rough and loud at times. But this cat has the patience of a saint and has never hissed once or been violent towards him or anyone for that matter. On the contrary, he thrives off of the interaction and attention and keeps coming back for more.
I have to admit that the initial process of adopting him was different from what I was used to in the past. (I adopted another cat from a different shelter many years ago.) Bonnie our "cat matchmaker" spent time with us to get a feel for the best match for us. Although we saw many cats in the cages that we would've liked to see, Bonnie assured us that they weren't the right fit for us and that she had the right one in mind. As soon as Bonnie brought Charley in our room, my husband Jared and I agreed that not only was he beautiful (with his gorgeous Siamese mix coat and sky blue eyes), he seemed to have a very friendly and likable personality. He also didn't bat an eye when our son tried to jump near him and yell. We agreed that Charley seemed like he would complement the needs of our family... and our hunch turned out to be right. ( :
Attached are a few pics of the beautiful and spunky Charley- 1 is of him enjoying his perch with a view of the outdoors; 1 is of him in a deep sleep all curled up; and the other is just a great shot of him doing what he does best - being playful and sweet.
Thanks again for introducing us to our new friend, Charley!

"Oh lord I LOVE him. I forgot how much fun a kitten is. He never extends his claws. He was a little reticent last night but by this morning he was swinging from the chandelier-(not really). It is hard to walk with a kitten rubbing up against your legs. It is hard to eat breakfast with a kitten jumping on your lap from either the adjoin chair or the floor. He plays, he jumped up on me several times last night while I was sleeping. He is an absolute delight. My heart is so full of joy and gratitude to HSNY for matching me with the perfect guy."
