Happy Tails Update: Harley

I brought Harley into my home on May 28, 2013 as a foster for Gateway Pet Guardians. 48 days later, I decided to make it official and add her to my family. I continue to foster, and I attribute my ability to do so all to Harley. She’s a great foster mentor, helping the dogs I bring in understand the rules of the house and providing them endless entertainment. She sleeps with me, travels wit…

Happy Tails Update: Brody

My husband and I decided one Saturday afternoon to stop by a multi-rescue adoption event in Belleville. We had both mentioned that it might be fun to get another dog as a playmate for our 9 year old GSD, but really weren’t 100% certain. At the event, I wandered around looking at some of the adoptable dogs, while my husband and two daughters made a beeline for the Gateway Pet Guardians tent.

Happy Tails Update: Montana

Montana was pulled off the streets as a 2 month old pup by PJ almost two years ago. She was in foster for about 2 months then we met her at the Wine & Wag event and she had to be ours. She was welcomed to the rest of the pack with open paws. From day one, this was her home! She’s been a busy girl. She’s been to Florida 4 times and learned how to swim. She’s been to the Pooches in the Park…

Happy Tails Update: Wrigley

Wrigley is always on the move and my iPhone camera just can’t keep up with him! So the clearest pic I can get is while he was napping during some kind of baseball in October? We Cubs fans aren’t real sure what they are. 😉 LoL.

He is about 6 months old. A boxer, pit & terrier mix. I adopted Wrigley back on June 30, 2013 from GPG. He was under the foster care of Brianna. While he does miss…
