Update on Saydee

Adopted: February 10, 2010

Dog’s former name: Unsure

What are the best things about your dog?
She is smart, active and super cuddly.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
She loves to chase her rubber tire toy, tennis balls, and the occasional rabbit; if it is brave enough to enter the yard.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
She is an elder dog and we thought we would lose her last fall as she got aspiration pneumonia. As a last resort we took her to the U of M and she was in ICU for 2 nights. She is such a fighter and was able to pull through at 11 years old, and is happy and healthy as ever.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
They definitely give her space as she gets very excited to see new people and really wants some good pets.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Saydee Girl.

FAST FIVE with Saydee

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? She has SUCH a personality and at time is both.
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? She did chew a few beds when she was younger, but nothing in many years.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? She is usually pretty good, but we don’t feed her before trips to the cabin and have not had an incident in a long time.
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Splash all day.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Her absolutely FAVORITE thing to do is sun herself on the deck or anywhere else she can.

Update on Jet Li

Update on Jet Li

Adopted: About a year ago

Dog’s former name: Jet Li – I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Jet Li movie, but it stuck.

What are the best things about your dog?
He has a snore like a white noise machine and he loves learning new things.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
We go to the park at least 3 times a week so he gets very excited any time we’re in the car. He also loves going to classes at Canine Coach; he’s been through 3 so far!

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
2 successful Obedience classes, one tricks class, and lots and lots of walking around. He has excellent recall and just wants to hang out.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
He’s very tall and doesn’t look very pitbull-ish, but he hasn’t gotten many bad reviews for that. The jumping up is the bigger problem.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Bubs or Bubber. A “Bubber” is what I call a dog that loves with reckless abandon; they jump and lick and headbutt because they just can’t help showing how much they love you.

FAST FIVE with Jet Li

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy for everything except for breakfast
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on, especially my pillows.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides, but he gets too excited and whines the entire time. There is no cure.
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Splash all day 100%
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? He loves both. He’s just excited and happy for everything all the time.
