Furriends...don't forget to stop and smell the roses today. It's the best gift I've given to my parents. Now slow it down Hoomans and give thanks to all the little things that make life so amazing! #dogteacheshuman .

Even though I don't do well with strangers...my kind and generous neighbour @kunal gave me the gift of his time (and tennis ball!) tonight.
While working and training endlessly with my pawrents, it's the everyday encounters that make teachable moments. Our neighbours have hectic schedules so it means so much that they would give up their time to hear about my progress and even take part in doing some work with me. Best neighbours ever...thank youπŸ€— ❀️

Puffins parents: this is the FIRST time ever that we've seen Puffin play with another dog (like actually play)! Any social situation, he just seemed uncomfortable/nervous about. Before giving play a chance, he would lash out. But there is no denying that he is seeing the world differently as the days go by - slowly but surely and on his own pace. And here it is...a happy little fella playing with a dog much larger than him!!! We've watched the video over and over and can't help but smile seeing how comfortable & trusting he is of Dusty. Special thanks to @ruffbeginningsrehab for facilitating this with extra care. Yay Puffin! πŸ€—β€οΈ

Hi furriends,
A different post today..but an important one because social media works!
Wanted to reach out to everyone here for my friend, Sandy. She is a 4 year old Doberman/Viszla recently adopted by mom's old colleague. However one of the children is having severe allergies to the dog. The family is completely devastated and heartbroken.
Sandy gets along great with kids and is not much of a barker at all. She has a sweet disposition and would make a great family dog.
If anyone could tag this post with friends, I would really appreciate it. The family will be returning the dog back to the shelter within the week so even if it's a temporary foster home, the family will be so thankful. All they want is to find Sandy a good home instead of sending her back to the shelter. If you are interested and located somewhere in LA, please DM me ❀️let's find Sandy a home!
Thanks everyone!

Puffin's parents (long post, please don't mind us): We love sharing a little bit of Puffin's awesome personality to his online friends. But today's post is a real glimpse of what's been going on behind the scene. Some of you may have been following Puffin's rehabilitation (thank you!) and today was a huge day for him. Last night we hosted an Oscar viewing party/dinner with some of our friends and fur kids. This wasn't possible a month ago but here he is in the midst of loud noises, men and dogs - keeping his cool. This is tough stuff for him and anybody that's got a reactive and/or fear aggressive dog can understand the real concern when it comes to having your dog around people. He got triggered for a moment (damn doorbells!) but no lunging at or trying to go after people & dogs. Instead, he settled in nicely for the remainder of the evening, stayed in his bed throughout the party. Uncomfortable but coping with the environment - Processing things as they are and regulating his own emotions and stress. He's a very sensitive (and dramatic!) little fella so we kept close eyes on him to make sure he was just under his threshold.
Every little learning moment is worth to celebrate so I wanted to get real with the whole rehabilitation process because this is our reality these days. Anyways, I've had conversations with frustrated dog parents lately struggling with their dog... just wanted to share with folks out there that there is hope! There was a point not too long ago when I obsessively googled and watched tons of dog training videos...sought out advice and support from complete strangers, got told a whole lot of things (good and bad)...fast forward to just a little over a month and we have made milestones in progress 😭 we love our newfound relationship with our little man and we thank @ruffbeginningsrehab eternally for guiding us and being such a great support for us. It means so much to us to see little Puffin thrive in this world and to really live his second chance! .
