Success Story "Daisy" (a.k.a. Dee Dee)

Success Story "Daisy" (a.k.a. Dee Dee)

How sweet is this? Carolyn sent us the story of her daughter Darlene and her Muttvile sweetie Daisy.

Carolyn herself is an “adopted” mutt mom of a Muttville dog named Sadie. Mother and daughter decided each to adopt a dog at around the same time 18 months ago, and both chose a senior from Muttville! Sadly, Darlene’s girl, Daisy, passed away. We’re touched by Carolyn’s tribute to Daisy:

My daughter Darlene adopted Daisy around that same time I adopted Sadie. She was a small dog, with 2 broken legs that were never properly taken care of prior to Muttville saving her.

Sorry to say Daisy passed 2 weeks ago, with a blood clot in her lung. There was no warning or anything Darlene could have done, (she is an animal health technician).

She had Daisy’s legs fixed, and nursed her to where she could walk and run. This past summer, Darlene had a very serious back operation, and little Miss Daisy, was glued to her side – the best medicine Darlene could have had for her recovery.

Darlene and her husband Leo gave that little Miss Daisy a most beautiful life, and she gave back being Darlene’s little love and nurse when she had her back surgery and during recovery.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

Carolyn, mother to Darlene, and adopted Mom to Sadie

Success Story Reba

Success Story Reba

A meaningful message perfect for the holiday season. Thank you Susan for warming our hearts with your update about Reba:

We adopted Reba from Muttville in April. I just wanted to let you know she’s fantastic and doing well. She and my 9 year old share lots of love.

We received tons of negative comments about adopting an older dog because what would we do when the dog died? Our daughter understands that pets are with us for a short time and we need to love them while they are with us. And when they die we’ll mourn but be thankful for what they’ve given us and then give another animal a home.

So happy we found Muttville.

Happy Holidays,

Susan

Success Story Lola (aka Dolly Parton)

Success Story Lola (aka Dolly Parton)

Lola says “Greetings from Boston!”:

Dolly (now Lola) is a good little traveler she made the whole flight to Boston without a peep! Luckily, the seat next to me was empty so I was able to let her out to sleep on the floor awhile. I put a blanket over her and she was snoring in seconds!

We think she definitely has picked up since being with us. She loves to go to the beach for a walk and she loves her meals. At first I had to encourage her to eat now she is waiting for her meals!

She is opening up but I think it will take awhile. She is a good little girl she loves her warm bed by the fire.

We love her, we wish we could have taken at least 3 little souls home.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

Michelle

Success Story Scooby (aka 2251)

Success Story Scooby (aka 2251)

Some stories tell us so much in a few words and pictures. Thank you Jordan for this loving tribute to Scooby:

We adopted Scooby about two and a half years ago and on November 10, he passed away from anemia.

He was only at Muttville a couple days but I just wanted to let you know he was the best dog we ever had and so thankful you guys saved him and allowed us to spend the last two and a half years with him.

Over the last couple years he established a special relationship with my wife. He understood sometimes before I did when she was feeling bad and would sit with her. If I got too close he would growl and wouldn’t let me close until things were better. We took him to Tahoe, Big Sur, and Pismo Beach. He never liked the water but liked to watch other dogs and humans run in and out of the ocean.

I just wanted to share and thank you for all the work you do, he was very special to us.
