    • Ole is Oh so Loved! I am writing to give you an update on Ole, whom we have now named Charlie. We found Charlie while looking at adoptable dogs on petfinder.com. We were concerned at first because he only had three legs. However, after contacting CCHS, they assured us that he would act like any other dog and would be able to do anything a four legged dog could do. After taking some time to think about it, we decided to schedule a visit. I think we can say that it was love at first sight. As soon as we saw Charlie, we knew that there was no way he was not going to be coming home with us. Our minds were made up, Charlie was going to be a Morissette. Since Charlie has lived with us, he has become the center of our lives. It didn’t take Charlie long to come out of his shell and he loves us all. Charlie also loves to go for long walks, multiple car rides, snug- gling, and playing with his toys. We tell Charlie everyday that we love him and will take care of him forever. Everyone who meets him falls in love with him because he is such a little charmer. We are so thankful that we were able to adopt him and make him part of our family. The Morissette Family Photo “Charlie” all dressed up as a yellow submarine for Halloween How well do you know your furry family Friend? Many of us have adopted wonderful “mix breed” mutts and often wonder what type of dog they are? We try to pick out the unique characteristics of different breeds and see if they fit our pet. Now, with DNA testing at an affordable cost, you can find out more about your incredible mixed breeds. Finding out the genetic make up of your dog can help you better understand your dog’s behavior, health Lollipop issues and breed traits.

    • Letters from the Heart Hi! My name used to be Toffee. Now it is Isabelle Rose. Fancy name, huh? My mom saw me online and fell in love with me before she even met me. She decided to come to the Bash, fill out my adoption papers, and take me home! The first few nights I slept with my mom all night long. Then I got a little more comfortable and explored at night. I still sleep with my mom a lot of the time, though. I play with my brothers and sister pretty much all day. I keep everyone busy. That's Jasper in the picture with me. He takes care of me. I'm so glad that I came to CCHS. They saved me and Hello, all you kind folks at CCHS, it's me, Biebs. my litter mates as well as my fur-mom. Thanks for Well, you may remember me as Bieber, the cute little taking care of me until my human mom came to get black lab and escape artist mix who moved out about eight weeks ago. My pet parents thought I should write me. I love my family! Isabelle Rose to let you know I'm getting all settled in my forever PS. My mom calls me Bizzy Girl. She says it's kind of home. They also said I should say thanks for taking care a pun, but I don't get it. of me until they could get there. And I should probably tell you some of the things I've been doing since I moved away. It was a long, lonely ride home and I was missing you guys already, but my new sister, also a black lab, was very reassuring. She told me they were taking us back where we'd all live together and I'd meet two more sisters. Then we'd all get fed, have play time and there would be way too much cuddles, including the dreaded "kisses on the pug." And I haven't always been the perfect boy, like that first night, I pushed the screen out, and the next day I escaped from my new crate and the day after that, pushed the screen from its frame. So, they fixed everything including the crate, but I don't use it anymore. I have a different place, they call it a kennel. It's OK, especially with a peanut butter kong and the bath sheet that make it a tent. But, you know, I really don't get to spend much time there because I have chores. My pet parents are nice but as my sister warned me, they're about half blind, nearly deaf and couldn't smell a rabbit if it was sitting right in front of them. So, probably no surprise one of things I do is help her lead the pet poppa back home when he goes for a walk to the river. There's also those three sisters who need to be played with and, oh, the tennis balls, this place is crazy with tennis balls. I'm going to have to go now, more learning to do. I'm being taught that just because it looks like a stick, smells and tastes like stick, doesn't mean it is a stick because it might be firewood. But before I go, I need to ask a favor, will someone there please give Beiber, the 60 pound lap dog and his new dad Miyoko a big lick on the cheek for me? She's a great lady and I'm lucky to have met her. Thanks again to everyone who made it possible for my pet parents and I to find each other! Beiber
