“Hey, Penelope, you want to go look at puppies today?”

…now we have a Maple. A delightful, sweet as can be, Maple. (Formerly “Cocoa.”)


She was the only dog out of two humane societies that didn’t bark. Sold! She also didn’t jump when we took her out of the cage to walk her around a bit.


She was rescued from a puppy mill. 150 dogs, and only fourteen found alive. Maple was one of those fourteen. You can kind of see the abuse in her right eye, and she was skin and bones only three weeks ago.


She has never had a home, has only had an actual name for three weeks, and still doesn’t understand “toys” or “playtime.” As you can see by the blurry photos, she is getting used to open space, but not having her photo taken. I’ll fix that soon! 🙂

We’re happy to have her here!

  1. Ahhhhh pretty girl! Our doberman Ryoji was a rescue he was severely abused and wounded when a nice couple took him in. just take baby steps with Miss maple, being a dog is a new thing to her but she will get the hang of it! Ryoji has a long way to go but dogs are loving and resilient, if only humans were as forgiving as dogs. Make sure you sing to her! (from the crazy pet lady)

  2. Ha! Zack sings to anything and everyone, so she with be sung to daily. He calls her “sugar maple” and makes song out of it 🙂 I can tell she feel loved
