Paris_success_collageHi Animal Haven,

We wanted to give you an update on our sweet little Teddie (formerly known as Paris).  It has been a year since we adopted her and can’t think of what life would be like without her. It’s overwhelming how much we love her.  She’s done quite a bit of traveling with us; from local trips to Grandma and Grandpa’s house to Lake George to relax at the family lake house, Teddie has had no shortage of fun and relaxation. She’s also traveled with us to Montreal and to an island off the coast of Florida, Caya Costa, where she played in the sun, frolicked in the sand and jumped in saltwater for the first time.  She did a great job on the airplane too.

So far Teddie has mastered the high-five, running to a target, playing dead (although it takes her about 4 “bang-bangs” until she really falls down) and other basic tricks.

Her favorite pastimes include chasing squirrels around Stuytown, lounging on one of her three beds and playing tug-of-war with her Chewbacca toy.

The shy, timid dog we first met at Animal Haven is long gone and has been replaced by a sassy, playful dog who gets nothing but compliments as she struts around and wags her little tail.

She was also present the day we got engaged and we think she approves. =)

Thank you for all the work you do helping dogs like Teddie find their FOREVER homes,

Gage and Lindsay
