Meet Our Puppies


Our extended family consists of two dogs. They both bring us lots of love and joy. While I was growing up we had all kinds of animals from cats, dogs, birds, snakes, horses, ducks, chickens, hamsters, guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, hermit crabs, mice, rats, and even Iguana’s. I love all kinds of animals, but my favorites are cats and dogs. I’ve had so many dogs and cats, so many litters of kittens and puppies, that I can’t even remember them all. Below are the bios for our wonderful pets that are our family and fill our lives with love.



Dolly is such a sweety. She is a 9 year old Shitzu/Poodle mix. She is about 13 lbs and is the most loving and sweet dog. We rescued her from a placed called Planet Pets who rescues dogs and cats from local shelters, make sure they are cleared medically , and then put them up for adoption. When they rescued Dolly from the shelter she had a severe broken right leg. They thought they wee going to have to amputate it, but they performed two surgeries and she was able to be adopted, by us! They had put two pins in her knee and eventually had one removed because it moved and was causing her pain. The other one, probably won’t have to because it seems to be in-bedded in the bone. Poor thing. She is doing really good with the leg, but sometimes she limps if she gets overstimulated or it’s really cold. Other than that she is a great dog. She knows how to sit, lay down, rollover, leave it, do circles and shake.  She follows me around, and loves to give kisses. She is the first dog that every freely kissed me without prompting. She is also the first dog that will fetch and actually bring the toy or stick back to me. She doesn’t want to give it back all the time, but that’s another issue, lol. She is a really happy and well adjusted dog.


The shelter doesn’t know where she came from, but I think she was in a good home and must have gotten out. She wasn’t a stray for very long. Our vet thinks she was probably dropped off at the shelter because the owners couldn’t afford to fix her poor leg. Maybe so, either way, we are thrilled to have her! We took her on our first road trip with us to Durango, CO. We rode the Durango-Silverton Railroad while we were there and put her in Doggie Day Care for the day. She had a blast playing with a little Jack Russel Terrier. She is very active and energetic but that night she was wiped. Reminded us of another poodle we had named Mocha when we took her to Dog Beach in San Diego. 🙂 We are very happy we were able to save her and give her a good home, but that trip made us realize that she needed a friend. The search began and we found her a friend with the addition of Belle.



Belle is an 8 year old blank and white Shitzu. She is a little smaller then Dolly, about 10 lbs, but they are evenly matched. They love to play all the time. We also rescued her from a local rescue here in the Denver area. We took Dolly with us to see how they would get along, and it was instant friendship. They acted like they were friends that hadn’t seen each other in a long tine. They are so fumy to watch. Since she is mostly black on top and Dolly is mostly white, they look like a chocolate chip rolling around. They just crack my up.


Her fosters parents said she didn’t bark or kiss much, but she kisses me all the time. At first she was a little shy, but now she is fine. She probably wasn’t sure if she was going to be shuffled around again or not. She loves carrots and loves going for rides and walks. She also loves playing out in the backyard, which makes it real fun when we have a huge snow storm.  She follows me around all the time and sleeps under my desk when I am working at home. Her favorite trick is to stand on her hind legs and turn around in circles. She will do this for a long time if I have a treat in my hand. She is such a sweetie and so glad she is a part of our family.

We love both of our babies and hope you enjoyed reading about them. If you have stories about  your puppies, please feel free to share 🙂

  1. Hello Glenda, thank you for the sweet message. I hear you about them sometimes owning us, lol. But it is so worth it! Please tell you son THANK YOU for the prayers for Dolly. They are greatly appreciated and well received 🙂 Enjoy your pack 🙂 and I am glad you stopped by. Have a great week.

So I showed yours to my son and he loved them both and wanted you to know he will be Praying for Dolly as no, animal should get hurt ever.

  3. You’re puppies are so sweet! Thank you for introducing us to them 🙂 I have two dogs of my own, rescue dogs from Ireland. We got them both last summer after our beautiful Greyhound lady Dina died after ten years with us, she was also a rescue dog from Ireland.

    In July we welcomed Nelly, 7-year old Yorkshire. She was terribly incontinent, and went through surgery in October, which went very well. In September Lola arrived, she’s a sight hound mix with some Border Collie in there as well 🙂 She’s terrible anxious outside and reacts strongly when meeting other dogs, but we’re working on that 🙂 Nelly and Lola are friends though!

    Take care of yourselves and your sweet dogs 🙂
