I n this issue of our eNewsletter, I wish to share the results of our outreach via Facebook to past adopters of OPHS animals for their "love stories". Nothing moves us more.

Hi, my name is Barkly and I picked my hooman in June 2018. Please find included a picture of the first kiss I gave her, she fell for it. 

I was shy and scared, and I wasn’t quite sure how to be a “good boi”. I spent lots of time climbing fences, digging out of kennels, and completely uncertain of what the hooman wanted. I learned pretty quickly that the hooman likes to let me take her for a trike ride down to the coffee shop (they helped me overcome my shyness, and have cookies), she likes when we Netflix and chill, I take her to the woods so I can run, she enjoys spending time at the dog park so I ask her to take me all the time, and the best part is she never runs out of snacks. 

According to my hooman, and lots of other friends, I am now a “good boi” and apparently “the best dog in the whole world”. I’ve even been featured on something called “Instagram” a couple times, my hooman was very excited. 

I know how to do tricks like the obstacle course, I’ve learned urban mushing because I know how to do tricks like the obstacle course, and I don't need
to climb fences anymore because my home is the best.  
 I met a yellow Labrador puppy named Tula, about a week after I came home. I think our hoomans are friends because we get to hang out a lot, sometimes Tula sits on my head but that’s OK. 

Well, I think that’s all for now because...
