introducing...


The newest member of our family- Sonny! We picked Sonny up today at the
RSPCA and it already feels like he's always been with us. He is seven-and-a-half years old, gentle, calm and pretty well trained, especially when you have a treat in hand. North is smitten, Indigo is intrigued, Brad's already in love and I couldn't be happier. I grew up with Golden Retrievers in my home and have missed having a four-legged friend and companion.

Of course everyone loves a puppy and would love to share their life with a dog from the very beginning, but there are so many dogs (and animals) surrendered to the RSPCA everyday, I could just never justify buying a brand new animal when there are so many in need of a good home. If you are thinking of getting a pet I urge you to consider adoption. You can search the RSPCA website for an animal that suits your family and lifestyle.

Welcome to the family Sonny, we hope you learn to love us as much as we already love you.

xo North, Indigo, Meagan and Brad.

Excellent. Our Hudson was from the RSPCA. He waited in that cage for 6 months until we took him home. he looks like a bruiser but is as gentle as a lamb. he's the most placid dog i've ever known and is so wonderful with the kids. pet shop puppies should be banned i think. xo

Wonderful news! I want a dog desperately but we can't get one since we plan to move back to Canada (not right away, but someday) and don't think it's fair to put a dog through a cross-continental move. As soon as we're back there though, it's off to the SPCA for me! I'm sure Sunny will love you like crazy very soon. x

What a cute dog! My parents and I made a point to adopt animals who needed a new home rather than going to a breeder or the like.

If I get a dog for my girls, we will certainly adopt :)

Enjoy your sweet new family member!

He appears to have made himself at home:) Enjoy having a furry four pawed member of the family again.
