Stay Tuned...

Sam and Tina, two NEAR dogs, are ready to hitch up to Santa's sleigh, though they look as though they might prefer sleeping in front of the fire. Sam has really big news for you. Watch for a Netflix film soon to be released. We don't know the name of it yet...maybe something like "The Sleepover"... because he played an important role in it, supposed to be out by the end of this month. We'll let you know when we know more. Wow, eh?

Mookie is looking for a home

He knows Airedales are the king of terriers, but he thinks he's the king of the world!  We believe that he's actually a Welsh Terrier but he tips the scales at over 50 pounds now because he is very overweight (think "coffee table").  Mookie is only 3 years old, healthy (except for obesity), and is a funny, happy. loving boy.  Except when he meets other animals.  That's when he becomes a handful.  He also doesn't like going to the vet or groomer.  So Mookie is looking for a home where he can be the only pet and where he has a fenced yard.  He is in a foster home in Connecticut and they love having him but it is a neighborhood where confrontations with other dogs on walks are not fun for anyone.  We know he will make a good companion to the right family.   If you want to know more about this character please contact Barbara at
