Tuna (formally known as Bob) loves napping anywhere and purrs if we just look at him. He is a bit of a climber but not too high.Bonaparte (formally known as Darunia) is a bit if a hoarder. He loves to collect his toys and carry them in his mouth to a cat bed. His bowed legs don’t seem to slow him down one bit.They both love to wrestle for what seems like hours but then curl up and purr together or in one of our laps.Our older cat (saki, 10 years old) has taken to them. He at times needs a break from all the playing but for the most part enjoys have new friends. We usually see him running through the house with Bo and Tuna hot on his tail.We had our vet check out the kittens and take a stool sample which came back negative. We will have their final vaccines in a few weeks and also have them chipped.We are so in love with the 2 little guys. Can’t imagine our home without them.

This is an update on Violet (known as Endora before her adoption) who was adopted from Lost Dog in April 2012. She is loving life in FL and is just the sweetest dog. She is so lovable to humans and animals. She is laid back, funny, and playful. She loves my doxie, who is older and clearly happier (and ”younger”) since having a sister around to play with. I also wanted to let everyone know that Violet has officially been accepted as a therapy dog. The owner of the organization absolutely loves her, and we both agree she was born to do this. She has already helped children in a library literacy program by sitting next to them while they pet her and read to her. On her future agenda, she will be visiting hospitals, assisted living facilities, detention centers, among other opportunities. I just wanted to share her proud accomplishment to those of you who remember her before we moved down south! And to remind everyone involved with Lost Dog why we give these dogs a second chance at life – because they can do big things, as little Violet has shown! We miss you <3

Kaily’s such a goofy girl and is always making us laugh. She LOVES to run and chase Spot at the dog park and she quickly makes friends with the other big dogs. She’s still nervous with strangers and keeps her distance from folks she doesn’t know, but her aggressive behavior has been corrected to a level we’re now comfortable with. Kaily’s been such a joy to add to our household and we’re so glad to be her forever home.

My family adopted Drake in September 2012 from the Petsmart in Alexandria and he has been without a doubt the BEST dog that we have ever owned or could have ever asked for. He was a senior dog when we adopted him (7, I have a soft spot for senior dogs). He loves to go for long walks and a trip to the dog park. He takes it upon himself to break up dog fights at the park. His favorite thing to do is follow me (no one else) all around the house. He can be energetic when he wants to be and other times he just wants to try to get in your lap (even though he weighs 65 lbs) or lay at your feet. Everyone that meets him (especially at the vet) says he’s such a sweet dog. He’s my best friend.
We adopted Lady in June 2013 from the Petsmart in Fairfax and she’s exactly what Drake needs. She’s 5 and has a lot of energy. She’s the perfect running companion. She makes Drake play with her (even when he doesn’t want to like she’s doing in the picture). She loves long walks and the dog park as well. Watch out squirrels, cats and all other furry things. She absolutely LOVES to give kisses. She always get compliments on how beautiful she is.
Both of them walk well on a leash. They also greet us at the door when we come home and no matter how hard my day was they always seem to make me happy!

We adopted Sophie two years ago this month. We love her to pieces, and we have tons of fun. She is a special dog.
