December 2009 – Update
“Now I have lived in my new family in a little over 3 months and it’s working really well. Dad and Mum says that I am talented and genius every day. The best thing I know is to have fun and cuddle. It is great fun to have fun with Tyson, we tend to have tug of war and play with balls. Tyson did not really about me from the beginning but now I think actually that he likes me, at least for the most part. It happens once in a while that he will be mad at me and jump on me but it’s very rare now, fortunately. I am of course very much stronger than him and Mum is afraid that I will suffer harm him. (I know that we see almost as big on the picture but I weigh a little more than 2 kg more than him, ha ha) I think that it is scary when it happens, I usually get a bit scared but as I said, it happens very rarely now, and mostly We are actually best friends. Mollan, I still have huge respect for, she is a little grin bitch usually Matte say. But I think it’s great fun to tease her sometimes when she was chasing me and I ran to the mats flies in the house. Uncle Brutus is pretty boring, he also likes to have fun but he would never busa with me without actually just with Dad. Brutus usually look at me and mutter a bit sometimes but he is always nice to me, so I let him simply be left alone.
I think it is super cozy to snuggle too. I would like to be in the Mattes or Dad knee and I do not care if it is already included there, I’m so small I can also spot. Sometimes it’s a bit crowded, so I crawled up high up so Mum or Dad can barely breathe and then they tend to push me down a bit. Tyson says that I have taken his place in bed but that it is okay. I is always close to saturation, preferably a bit on top.Mum thought it was a bit strange that Tyson gave up his place without fuss but I think it is because he likes me so much.
From the beginning when I moved into this house it was the sense that I would go with Mum to work during the day but this was not true.For various reasons, so I was not there so I had to be at home with Dad and Mattes daughters during the day. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, I was with Jenni, and it was great fun. She dreams she is good!
On Tuesdays, I stay home with Linda, it was also fun, and especially since there are two little boys there, Marcus and Oliver, who likes to play with me. On Thursdays, I go with Dad to the job (though he may not really having dogs at work, hihi). It has worked out well, but at the same time, I have wondered why Mum went away with Brutte, Tyson and Molli and then left me. Fixed now everything has changed! From a few weeks back, I am also welcome to Mattes job. So now I ride in the car a lot timmepå morning before we get there. I was a bit hard to take care of me beginning but it goes better and better every day. Fixed now, we leave in 5 weeks and it’ll be really nice.
It was heavenly fun the other day for it was lots of snow. Oh what fun I think it is! I plow my way through snow, I tasted the snow and I roll myself in it .. Sometimes, I look like a snowman when I come in and Dad have been showering me to remove everything. It’s probably the only downside to the otherwise so lovely snow.
Mum and Dad say I basically takes care of me very well but there are still a lot to work with. Though they have never asked me to everything from scratch, either. I’m quite noisy, they say, but that we should practice intensely now on holiday.
Mum says she has three Yorkshireterrirar and a terrorist! Actually I do not know quite what she means but it must probably be good because she always kisses me.”
October 2009 – Update
Here’s an update from Coco, now called Rambo.
“Me and my family adopted Coco that came from you, almost 4 weeks ago. Since he came here he got a new name, new life=new name, and his new name is Rambo!
Rambo is a fantastic dog! He is happy all the time and very easy to learn new things. We already had 3 Yorkshire terriers in the family, Brutus who is 6 years old, Tyson that will be 6 in December and Molly who is about 8 years old. Molly is about a fourth of Rambo’s size but he has a great respect for her. It looks so fun when she barks at him and he runs away ;-).
We really love Rambo and thinks he is just the dog we wanted. The other dogs loves him too, maybe not Molly all the time but I think she enjoys it too. Rambo and Tyson plays in the house, running around, chasing each other and are having fun all the time. So far he has slept in our daughter’s bed but I am sure he will move up to our bed sooner or later, a bit crowded with 4 dogs in the bed but on the other hand it is very nice.
We are so grateful that you took care of him and gave him a chance to come to us. We really love him and he took his place in the family at once.
I am sending over a couple of pictures, just to let you see he is all right.
Thank you for everything
Annika Soderlund with family”
