CLARA

Posted

Hello, APS!  I’ve attached a picture of another alumnus you can add to your gallery.  This is Clara, formerly Janie, adopted in September 2008.  She was pretty subdued when we first adopted her – we think she may have been a little depressed from having lived at the shelter for 6 weeks – but it … Continued

MYLES BILL CLINTON

Posted

I don’t know if you recall, but you helped us adopt an old Border Collie a year ago on labor day weekend.  We named him Myles Bill Clinton and he became the happiness of our family.  I’ve never met anyone who loved and was as happy as he was….someone who had a broken, painful body; … Continued

BUNTY

Dear APS, Here is an update on Bunty (kept the name) and photos for your site and/or Facebook alumni page. Since being adopted from Durham APS in August 2008, Bunty has become quite a traveler (by car, not plane — don’t think she’d like that), and amassed loyal fan clubs along the way. Here’s her … Continued

PENELOPE

I adopted Penelope (then known as Wendy) in September of 2008 – one year ago this week!  When I was in high school, my family adopted a bouncy, cheerful Samoyed-mix we named Yuri, who officially turned me into a dog lover.  Of course, he could not come to college with me, and is a bit … Continued

PHEONIX

My wife and I adopted Phoenix from APS of Durham of June 24th, and we’ve got the most adorable, wonderful dog you can imagine!  She’s got a lot of energy, so we take her for walks around the block, and on those walks we even found a new entrance to a local state park!  It’s … Continued

TILLY

I adopted “Brownie” a few years ago.  Tilly, as she is now known, and I have our weekend morning ritual of coffee (for me) and biscotti or a cookie (for us both).  As you can see, Tilly is eagerly awaiting her piece of the cookie.

LUNA

Hi APS,   I ran into one of your volunteers at PetSmart last weekend and I thought I would pass along a happy ending story for my dog Luna (formerly Winnie) that I adopted at the end of May ’09.  Luna is such a sweetheart and does great meeting new dogs and people.  She is … Continued
