Patience Is a Virtue

For years Milady was the queen of Passion 4 Paws. Coveted afar by every adopter.  But after surviving horrible neglect, Milady was sassy and stand-offish; friends were made on her terms, not ours. But that didn't stop this feisty senior from finding her forever home. After less than two months, Milady's mom Deb happily reports, "Milady continues to blossom! At first she lived up to her aristocratic name - to which I added Persnickity. She was aloof and holding everyone at bay with her hissing. I was worried about her erratic eating, but found her preferred food (Weruva) and, at the holistic pet store owner's suggestion, added salmon oil to improve her overall health and disposition. In recent weeks I have not heard a single hiss; I've caught her tearing around rooms at top speed and batting toys and balls around; her appetite is excellent and consistent; and she demands attention with head butts. She has settled in very nicely and has come so much further than I thought possible!"  Deb, thank you for seeing the loving soul beneath the harsh fascade.  We wish you all the best.  Keep the updates coming.

The Story of Auntie Goose

Ten years ago someone thoughtlessly dumped a gaggle of domestic geese at a local reservoir.  We found homes for all but one of the geese, who we call Auntie GooseAuntie Goose prefers to live with, and mentor the Canadian Geese who also live there. Each year she adopts one couple, and helps them raise their young.  Auntie Goose will honk and hiss to ward off any potential evil that comes near her adoptive family, and remains constantly by their sides. Our attempts to catch Auntie Goose have been unsuccessful.  She is not a very friendly goose. Oh sure, she'll come around expecting food...
