First was Sybil. Miss Sybil hit a speed bump in her first adoption with New Rattitude, but she is not worried now! Sybil (Kiki) has a wonderful family who absolutely adore her. She is never alone as her dad is retired and has a shop at home. She also gets to go on walks with her mom all the time and she goes everywhere with her people and that is what Sybil prefers!
|Sybil (Kiki) Happy Tails to you, so happy to have been able to help you to your forever home.|
Second adopted was Neon (now Rowan), this little gal was sure a hoot and I think I ended up with more photos of Neon in the short amount of time she was with us than any other foster dog. She was constantly doing something adorable. She also got a lot of attention and we are so happy that she was adopted into a forever home with another New Rattitude alumni, Sydney (now Aela). Rowan and Aela have settled in wonderfully and are sisters in everything they do. Their mom and dad got married over the summer and the girls even got to be part of the wedding! We love when our foster dogs become part of a family, so cherished and loved.
|Neon the bouncy puppy!|
|What a cutie!|
|CongRats to Rowan and Aela's mom and dad!|

|Silly girl. Look how confident and regal she has become.|
Our next foster kid adopted in 2014 has a very very special place in our hearts. All our foster dogs are dear to us, but there was one we just knew we could never get enough of and this special boy became our very own furbaby. Timken was with us for 8 months before we adopted him. He is a special boy with some special needs and we made the decision we couldn't part with him. It was a good choice for us and for Tim! Tim continues to make baby steps in his confidence and in a little over a year he has really bonded to us and I believe he has learned to trust us. One thing he loves to do is K9 Nosework and it proficient in all 3 odors now. He also loves to go on his off leash trail walks every day, rain or shine, and when he is on "his" trails he is able to let loose and be a silly, confident rattie.
|In the beginning Tim had to work up the courage to be close to me|
|Tim used to be very afraid of new places or people. He is still uncertain but with us as his home base he is able to work through it.|
|The first time Tim snuggled with Dave.... it took a few months for him to feel ok to snuggle, he snuggles with one of us every day now :)|
|Tim loves to fetch egg babies and is really good at it! Look at that much more confident boy!|
|I just love this photo of Skip and Tim a couple of months ago. Tim has come out of his shell and can be a silly rattie now. We are very happy he is forever a part of our family.|
|Annie loves to go for walks.|
|Here is a photo I got of Miss Annie with her dad. She is looking so good! They have continued with her weightloss plan and she is looking fabulous.|
Coming up will be some more Nosework posts as Birdie, Liza, and even Jenny are going to be playing catch up to their brother's Skip and Tim in Nosework skills. We start in January and it is going to be a blast.
Our Northwest Region had 55 adoptions in 2014, please see the wonderful video card celebrating each one. http://tinyurl.com/l88qgz5
Happy New Year everyone. May 2015 be prosperous, healthy, and peaceful. Make a resolution to walk those furkids!
