Arrival Story:
I saw Skye in July outside the local Guilderland Animal Shelter. I stopped my car and was talking to him through the fence. When I went back in December to bring donations to the shelter, I could not believe he was still there! He had been abandoned in the Western part of our town. He was very hyper and a big dog, so a lot of people were turned off by that. Imagine that.....a dog that has tremendous love and affection and wants nothing more than for you to touch him and throw a toy - - and people were turned off. Sad for them. Lucky for us!

Skye is an awesome furchild with a heart of gold, and not a mean bone in his body. He comes beautifully equipped with one brown eye and one blue eye. Hence the name Skye. He was the only dog that our beloved Lab Riley (now deceased) loved.

We Went on Vacation !!!!!

Shhhhh, don’t tell Daddy. Mom said she was taking him on a surprise date for Father’s Day. Truth be told, WE were taking daddy on the date! We all piled into the car and drove over four hours to Vermont, to Dog Mountain, to see the Dog Chapel!!!

It was so much fun; we stayed in a hotel, and the nice lady took our picture to put on the hotel’s Facebook page. We played in the really big yard they had, and slept in the room with mom and dad.

The next day, we went to see Dog Mountain. It was Heaven on Earth!!! We got to run around with no leashes (no dogs have to wear their leashes there). They had an agility course, an art gallery, a pond, hiking trails, the works. And….a Chapel. You have to see it to believe it. We were allowed to go in the pond soaking wet, and then go in the chapel, the gallery – wherever we wanted to go.

Our friend Kodi drove two and a half hours to meet us. Well, actually Kodi, didn’t drive, his mom Deb, did. We had a great time together. Check out Dog Mountain at


Christmas Blessings

It's a few days before Christmas.....and we wanted to extend blessings for health and happiness in the New Year to all our pup friends and their families.

We pray for peace in the world; shelter for all living creatures, both human and fur......hugs, kisses, love, attention, affection, and of course a full bowl of Kibble.

We cry for the children and the adults who are homeless, and for the fur babies who are as well. We are sorry for their loneliness and isolation. We are deeply saddened when we see people sleeping in the streets; and when we see a dog tied to a line all day; or in a kennel staring at its house, hoping its owners will come and play. And for kitties who are feral and must hunt and live outside all winter.

But for all the sadness, we are so happy for the people who give generously of their time, effort and money to help the homeless people, the abandoned dogs, and the feral kitties. For them, we are grateful.

Peace and blessings to all of you in the coming New Year.

Our hearts are with you,
Riley, Skye and Quinn (and Mommy too)


I've been Thanksgiving Tagged - Twice!!

Because it’s Thanksgiving time, there is a change to the rules. Each player needs to tell seven special things they are thankful for. Tagged dogs must post the rules in their diary and their 7 things. Then choose 7 pups to tag and list their names. Let them know by pawmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary for the instructions on how to play. We're going to divert a little from this game....we're not going to tag other pups. We're just going to list what we're thankful for. And we could easily do more than seven......

1. I am thankful that mom and dad took a chance on me.
2. I am thankful I had the best teacher ever - Riley!
3. I am thankful I have a new little sister, Quinn
4. I am thankful that I became a poster dog to help raise awareness in our Town about abandoned animals.
5. I am thankful for my never ending collection of FRISBEES.
6. I am thankful for all my Dogster pals.
7. I am thankful for a warm bed at night, water at all times, good food, good treats, a safe place to live, and loving hands.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my pup pals!
