We adopted Cali more than 16 years ago from HAWS. She's slowing down a bit, but is still doing well. She loves hanging out with our big stuffed animal, Lucky. And anywhere the sun is shining, she's soaking it up!

"Wanted to drop you a note but I've been SO busy since I was adopted in May! The first night, since I knew my new folks were lonely, I let the Missus share my pillow...and we've been doing it ever since. I get three really good meals each day - lunch is especially good because I get my favorite foods like salmon, turkey and giblet gravy, tuna...the list just goes on. I take naps every afternoon with my new friends (pictured here - I'm the one in between the 2 dogs). Thanks for finding me such a great home! - Nibbles"

Quinton is doing VERY WELL.
He is a little sweetheart - he still loves massages, and receives them daily along with lots of kisses on his forehead. I think he is a pretty happy bunny - thank you for your patience and assistance!

"Just wanted to let you know that I'm doing GREAT in my forever home. I have a little brother Elliot and we have so much fun together. We also have piggies that we are very nice to. I still like to talk about, well, EVERYTHING, but I am learning I don't need to.
I am very happy and my Mommy & Daddy love me
- Love, Sally Ann"
