Riley Langan Lebowitz


Riley has the bragging rights of being one of Brigitte’s very first rescue dogs.  In the Fall of 2006, she circulated an e-mail with photos of a group of dogs that were in foster care and available for adoption.  Having recently lost our first 15 year old Humane Society rescue, Riley's soon to be family was looking for another dog as a companion to their second dog.  The WV foster mother described Riley this way “He’s not hyper, but he has a little bounce.”  That description was perfect!

Dakota is getting big at 5 months old!

Tucker Goes Canoeing

Just wanted to share this photo with you.  Tucker and I spent our first night (well, few nights) apart this past weekend.  We hadn't been apart overnight since he became a Vermonter and I really missed him, but knew he was in good hands.  He went down to southern Vermont (I am up North) and spent a few days with my dad.  Apparently it was like he was at summer camp.  They went swimming too.

Such wonderful additions

We adopted Delilah (we have since renamed her to Daisy and she picked it up immediately) through Golden Huggs Rescue and she has been such a wonderful addition! I'm not sure what her story is prior to coming into our home, but she is my lovebug and such a great 'sister' to our dear Dixie (another rescued Golden Girl). I couldn't have asked for a better rescue group to work with!
