Looking for a Furever Home

Hi there! My name is Abby. My sister, Betsy.

We used to live in Tennessee but our mom got sick and couldn't take care of us and our brothers and sisters any longer. We came up North and are now living with our Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue foster mom.  We were born on July 19, 2005 and have been together all of our lives. When we first came here we were separated in different foster homes. We both cried all night long until we saw each other at the doctor's office one day. We were so happy to see each other. We kissed and played and snuggled. Then we got the good news that the decision had been made to let us stay together while in foster care. There has not been one word out of us since. That means that we must be adopted together. We are very healthy and quite active for being 11 years old. We are outside potty trained but will go on pads if the weather is bad. Betsy considers anything under 65 degrees "cold" and she doesn't care for snow. I had my teeth cleaned a month ago. Betsy doesn't have any teeth anymore so her little tongue hangs out of her mouth sometimes. We both have excellent appetites. We make sure that mom knows it is time to get up and feed us every morning. I weigh 6 lbs., Betsy weighs 5 lbs.. We both eat dry kibble but we do appreciate having a little warm water put on it to make gravy! Mom says that we would eat her out of house and home if we let her. We get along with all sorts and sizes of dogs. We haven't been tested around cats. We love to follow mom around all over the house but our most favorite thing is to cuddle with her and each other on the couch. Betsy has some arthritis in her back and she can't jump up on the couch but she can jump down. At night we sleep curled up together in one bed. Mom won't let us sleep in her bed because she is afraid we might fall off and get hurt. We like to go for car rides and even chew on an occasional bone. We are looking for a forever home where we can snuggle with you and keep you and your couch warm. We don't take up a lot of room but we will fill your heart with love. 

If you are interested in us, please fill out an adoption application @ and ask for us, Abby and Betsy.
PS   We look so much alike; we will make sure you know who is who.
Adoption Donation $300 for both microchip included.

Miss Penny Pockets
Prolific Patterings of Miss Penny Pockets

Today was my Spa day.  I go to "Dirty Paws" in Temecula.  "FFF" for "feet, face and fanny".  I get a bath, a blow dry, Brazilian comb out, facial - coconut and papaya today, and a play date with whoever is there.  Today it was Rae's pup, Nala.  We became friends a while back.  She's only a little bigger than I am and we get along really well.

When Mom got to the beauty salon I raced up to the front to say "Hi hi hi!" and "Oh I missed you SOOO much!".  But then she said I had to go home and that wasn't what I wanted.   I turned around and scooted back into the salon and Rae (my stylist) had to catch me.   These ladies don't play fair.  They are so much bigger than I am and they just don't understand how important it is to have play time with my peers.   Oh well.  My next appointment is on June 5th at noon and that also happens to be my birthday.   I will be ONE YEAR OLD.   I think it would be a nice thing if my mom takes cupcakes to share with the peeps that work at Dirty Paws.  I'll ask her.   Yes...that would be very nice.  And maybe a treat for me and Nala, too.

The lady at the drive-through at Chase Bank complimented me on my hair-do.  She has a pup who is part chihuahua and part pomeranian (I think).  Her baby is 8 years old and named Gucci.  We gave her the name of our salon and the date of my next appointment.  She said she will try to make an appointment for Gucci for the same time.  I love making friends.

Wishing you a joyful and love filled May.  And hoping your bowl always overflows with gourmet kibble.

Love, Penelope Dawn Pockets

Tips to Keep Your Pets Healthy and Happy in the Spring

Protect your pet
You can keep your pets safe and reduce the likelihood that they'll become lost or stolen by following these tips:
  • Provide your pet with a collar and ID tags (keep recent photos and written descriptions of your companion animals on hand at all times)
  • Keep your pet indoors when you're not home
  • Have your pet microchipped. Collars can be pulled or fall off, so this more permanent identifier and provides an excellent way to ensure you are able to reunite.
  • Consider downloading the new smartphone app: Finding Rover and register your pet by taking his/her photo
  • Spay and neuter your pet. Some studies have shown that sterilized animals are less likely to roam
  • Leash your pet when outside-cats too!
  • Make sure you are careful when guests come by to avoid inadvertent escape
General Safety Tips
While many of these are common sense, they are included here as a friendly reminder.
  • Establish a veterinary-patient relationship and make sure your pet has annual checkups
  • Make sure your pet is up-to-date on vaccines, especially rabies
  • Know how to perform CPR and provide basic first aid. See our article about pet first aid programs
  • Give your pet plenty of exercise. Regular exercise will help your pet feel better and live longer
  • Use gates and childproof latches to keep pets out of inappropriate areas within the home
  • Place medications, cleaners, chemicals and laundry supplies out of reach
  • Keep trash cans covered or inside a latched cabinet
  • Place dangling wires from lamps, televisions, stereos and telephones out of reach
  • Keep the toilet lid closed to prevent drowning or drinking of harmful cleaning chemicals
  • Move house plants that may be poisonous out of reach (the most important is the EASTER Lily)
  • Learn about foods to avoid that may be hazardous to your pet (e.g., chocolate, onions, raisins and grapes)
  • Clean all antifreeze from the floor and driveway, as one taste can be lethal to animals
  • Make sure your kitten doesn't get into danger (e.g., that he/she hasn't jumped into the dryer before you turn it on.
  • Put away all sewing and craft notions, especially thread.
  • Do not unleash your pet in unfamiliar territory
  • Avoid interactions with unknown dogs (bite wounds)

Neeko's Joke

Customer: 'I've been ringing 0700 2300 for two days and can't get through to inquiries, can you help?'.
Operator: 'Where did you get that number from, sir?'
Customer: 'It was on the door to the Travel Agency'. 
Operator: 'Sir, 0700 2300 is our opening hours'.

Love and Smooches,  
Neeko :o)
