Nica travels across Canada!! (BRLA's Kalhua)

Hi Shannon,

I hope you've had a great summer! Nica had an awesome time travelling across the country with us - we went all the way to Halifax and back by car. She loved the ride and camping and got lots of great hikes, walks, swims and stick-chasing time on the trip. I've attached pictures of her at Drumheller, Banff, somewhere in Manitoba, a beach in Nova Scotia and Peggys Cove! Quite the adventure, but she was a fantastic companion the whole time.

We couldn't be happier with Nica - thank you for finding us such a sweetheart! Like most boxers, all she needs is exercise, discipline, a good diet and lots of love and she gives it back ten-fold! She regularly goes to the beach to swim and fetch a stick and to the endowment lands for a run. She is great with kids, dogs and cats, which was a huge help on our trip to visit friends and family. As you can see from the pictures, she's a muscular little lady and loves a good summer day!

We would love to adopt another boxer one day, but we're not quite ready for two just yet :)

Thanks again and take care!

Thank you for helping to make WBBR Pub Night such a huge success!

Thank you to everyone for making WBBR Pub Night 2011 an amazing event!

WBBR would like to thank everyone for their love and support. We have had a very successful and wonderful year. In fact in 2010 we helped over 110 dogs find their way into forever homes.

Our adopters, who have opened up their homes and their hearts to our dogs. You have all been able to do what some have not…… You have been able to see past the history of the dogs and the scars and still see the true beauty that each and every dog has inside them and to love them for that beauty. Our adopters not only provide food, water, medical & shelter but also provide a loving family. And for that we are eternally grateful.

WBBR volunteers are amazing people we are grateful to each and every one of them for the work that they do. It is not easy juggling full time jobs, families, dogs and life on its own….. Yet our volunteers all still find the time to volunteer with us. There are many other things that WBBR volunteers do for the rescue. Our volunteers are a group of dedicated people and we are very proud to be working with such a great team. Thank you everyone for your support. WBBR is truly blessed to have such wonderful and generous people behind our organization.

Kali & Blaze a Match Made in Heaven - Boxer Heaven that is!!!!

Hi Jennifer

Good news it was not my bed they were in it was Julie's!!!
These two are now eating out of the same bowl. Both lick of the opposite sides of a spoon. I was told he has a tendency to bolt so that will be there first order of business to get him to come when called. If he is so attached to Kali it will be much easier. She comes at a gallop. They have truly had an instant bonding. This will make it much easier to bring Blaze around.(The grand daughter picked this one.) Kali & Blaze ----- hummm.

We will probably get Blaze to our vet with in the next couple of days. Is it OK to get a chip put in if he does not have one?

I guess I just got his seal of approval he came over and climbed up into my lap.
My yard has not had a workout like this for some time. I now remember why We had no grass. The family came over to meet the new one. Three grand daughters two boxers one Shiatsu and a very large bucket of tug toys and fuzzy toys. Everyone will be sleeping well tonight.

Have a good one.

Tifa finds an active family to call home

Hi Jen & Kerri:

She is amazing! We love her.
She's fitting right in and the girls are all over her.
Big runs in the park. She's lightning quick and already had a nice play with some other dogs.

We think we will change her name to Georgia. Thoughts?
Thanks you guys so much for helping us get our new addition.

Don Eva Annika and Maggie!

Noelle & Brutus update - wonderful!

Hi Sheri

It's nice to hear from you. The Summer is going well. Too much work, but at least we're all off to Vancouver Island tomorrow for a break (doggies too). Noelle and Brutus are doing well, although Noelle has a new tumour. It's in between her toes and the vet says that to operate would probably require an amputation. So for the time being it's being treated with a steroid to minimise irritation and it doesn't seem to be much affecting her quality of life at the moment. The reality is that at some stage she'll succumb to tumours, but she's still a happy, sweet dog (she doesn't like any other dogs apart from Brutus, but we work around that).

Meanwhile, Brutus has grown fast and is a beautiful dog. He's responded well to training is all but one respect. He just loves to play with all other dogs and if he spots one in the distance will just bolt and become completely deaf ! But given that there's not an ounce of aggression in his interaction, it's not a real problem and we'll continue to work on the distance commands. He'll be very sad when Noelle eventually goes and we'll probably then need to look at another companion.

Anyway, they're a delightful pair and are both very happy. I'm attaching a couple of pictures.

Now that you've mailed me it's reminded me that i never set up a monthly donation which I will now take care of.

I hope that you are having a good Summer.

Best regards
