We brought home our lab mix, June, about a year ago when she was eight weeks old. She has grown into a lovely dog and we think she is the best. Her favorite activities are hiking, going to the dog park, lounging at home, and trying to play with our two cats. In the winter, she loved the snow and never missed an opportunity to join us on the cross-country ski trail. Now that it's summer, she takes every chance to get in the water and even jumps off the dock at the lake.
She has a voracious appetite and is quite an athlete, but has remained a petite 45 pounds or so. She gets to go on lots of adventures and is well-behaved and adaptable to new situations. She is friendly and eager to meet new dogs and people, especially kids. Most importantly, she is a sweet, loyal, and much loved family member.
Thanks to All Dog Rescue and especially her foster mom for helping us connect with June!
We can't put into words how much we love and adore Remington aka Remi, formerly known as Largo. He is the sweetest boy, and loves to snuggle up close.
We adopted Remi in February, and his training was mighty quick. He had a few accidents, but has since learned to sit by the sliding door when he needs to go out. He knows how to sit, lay down and catch treats that are tossed in the air! He is relatively mellow when he is outside in the backyard, and often sits on the deck, or in the grass watching birds. He has learned to walk nicely on a leash, and loves his afternoon strolls with mom, dad and his new brother, Jax.
On the weekends, Remi has become quite the lake/cabin dog. He LOVES to swim and fetch balls in the watch. He also loves going for ride in the pontoon! He definitely needs the full week to recoup and take some nice naps.
We are so blessed that Remi became a part of our family. His personality and sweet and gentle demeanor is all we could ever want. He finally feels as if our home is now his home, and he has become such a happy and loving part of the family.
After 6 years together and 2 years with Diesel we couldn’t be happier to make our family official!
Hoping for many more years with our buddy celebrating the big moments in life with us! Still as happy and energetic as the day we adopted him!

I have meant to send you an update on Bilbo for ages. He has become a very special part of our family. With me working from home, and Bilbo being so very easy to bring with places I am really pleased to say it is very rare he stays home alone. He is so well behaved (no barking, no weird habits) that we can take him basically everywhere!
He loves to be outside and sticks to us like glue when we are out. He still has some training to do but things like house training are a thing of the past. I can't even remember the last time he had an accident...he just tells us when he wants to go out. He's a smart dog.
And what a cuddler! We call him the Bilbwarmer, or The Bilb2000. He likes my sister's dogs but especially loves Aaron's parents bigger dogs and he gets to hang out about once a week with one or the other. He has also developed no interest in my small animals -- not a lot of killer instinct which works perfectly for us. I've also noticed a generally less anxious attitude around new people, and it always makes everyone smile when he sneaks onto the lap of someone he just met or people he knows looking for that ever sought after petting.
Anyway just wanted to say how special he is and how good he is doing, and how happy we are to have him. We could not be feel luckier with this little guy. Thank you!
