Elvis in his new home

Fri, 18 Apr 2003 12:32:47 -0500 - from Barb

These are a couple of pictures of Elvis, who was a "foster failure" of IMPS volunteers Nancy & Gonzalo R. This is the second Min Pin they fostered, and the first they kept!

Elvis

Rough life, huh?

Elvis

I guess Elvis really IS the KING! The other dog (curled up in the tiny bed) is his best buddy, Kaiser, a huge Labrador who weighs about 80 lbs.

Today is a special day

Tue, 13 May 2003 11:54:27 -0500 - from Angie

Winnie

Today is a very special day here in the Reed household. We are celebrating the Anniversary of our little Winnie Girl. It has been 4 years to this day that we have been blessed to have her in our lives. She was 5 and half months old when we got her and she has been an Angel Girl from day 1. Always there with her unconditional love and of her strength. :-)

Running out to pick up a brand new pool for her to "bob for rocks" in and baking her a chicken and rice cake (cookie).

Hugs,
Angie

Chula - look at her now!

Sat, 31 May 2003 11:21:30 -0500 - from Lisa

Chula

Here's our IMPS girl, Chula, when we got her in and then 4 months later. She was seized in a cruelty case, bald from Demodex mange. A wonderful home adopted her after a month and finished her mange treatment - look at her now!

Here's two photos. The first photo is of Harley, who we adopted in early 2001 from IMPS. The second photo is one of Harley and his adoptive sister Lexi. Lexi is half his size but he knows this little lady is in charge. They adore each other.

Pictures from Barb!

Sat, 17 Apr 2004 19:39:24 -0500 - from Barb

Hi, Mag.

I thought I'd send a couple of pictures to the list, since I just figured out how!

USDAA Trial

The first picture was taken in Indianapolis at a USDAA trial, where we had a Min Pin Rescue reunion!. From left to right is: Diane M. and Samson, who she adopted from Lynn B.; Sandy and Scott M. from Canada and Missy, Tuffy, and ? (sorry, Sandy!), me and Nikki and Shainy, both IMPS adoptees, and Tom and Jester & Charlie (Charlie never even made it into rescue, lol!).

Waiting for dinner

The second is our 'Pin Pack waiting patiently for dinner. The terrier are also waiting, but not quite that close to the 'Pins..... Mealtimes get a bit too exciting!

Jester and Nikki

The last is a shot of Jester and Nikki, keeping warm. Aren't they adorable? :o)

Thanks.

Maggie, Here are some pictures of CJ. We got him from IMPS two year ago and he is still going strong. His three legs do not stop him at all. He has been a little mouthie with his barking lately and doesn't want to be left behind.

Bach and Choc

Bach and Choc are a foster pair here in IMPS IL, formerly called Chocolate and Box (very cute as Chocolate Box, but who wants to call "Here Box! Here Box")? Their foster mom Paula got this great pic of them, and I had to share.

And...

Snert

Here we have my own doggie, Snert, in his self-made pillow fort... sigh....

My little success story - Ana

Fri, 7 Jan 2005 15:14:27 -0500 - from Patti

Ana

Hello! I adopted Ana from IMPS (foster mommy Lois in IL) last July.

She has just been the most amazing little addition to my life! Truly an angel! I wanted to send a picture of mom (me) and miss Ana just to brag on IMPS and the services that you providing putting worthy pets with good owners.

Lois if you're still there, here's an update!

Ana and I moved to a little house in a subdivision in Whiteland in March 04.
She has a fully fenced back yard and throughout the spring, summer, and fall, we walked nearly a mile a day in our neighborhood. She KNOWS exactly what it means when mommy gets the leash out. My husband installed a doggy door for Ana in the fall too, and she is really enjoying being able to come and go as she pleases (and her people enjoy it too, knowing that shes safe out there in the fenced yard).
We've taken it easy this winter and are awaiting the arrival of spring!

Thank you for all that each of you do. I know its really made a tremendous difference in my life having my little cuddle girl!

Kindly,
Patti

Hi, Mag-

Here's some pics of Indiana foster pin "Belle". Belle was used as a bait dog and had many nasty bite wounds, one pictured below in her "before" shot.

The wonderful Severa family adopted her - as you can see above, she is very RELAXED and happy in her new home! They call it "Belle's Primordial Ooze".

Izzy Success Story

Tue, 23 May 2006 15:04:15 -0500 - from Mick

Izzy

Mag,

I would really appreciate it if you guys could put a blurb about Izzy. We, my wife and I, adopted her 2 years ago. She is doing just fine, and is loving her forever home. We recently got another dog, Tucker. Tucker is a boxer / Shepard mix and they get along great, except when they are fighting over snuggle spots on our bed at night.

Here is a link to Izzy's website at dogster.com

    www.dogster.com/pet_page.php?i=315279&j=t

Hope all is going well and please let us know if there is anything we can do.

Thanks

Mick

Success Story: Brewzer

Mon, 17 Jul 2006 13:54:49 -0700 (PDT) - from Bryna

In October 2005 we added Brewzer to our family. Ellie needed a brother. Jeff and I (Bryna) thought about it and realized it would be great if Ellie had someone to play with. We have had Brewzer for about 10months now and we love him. He fits right in!!!

Brewser, Ellie
This is Brewzer (in the Harley outfit) and Ellie (In the princess outfit) at Halloween.

Brewzer, Ellie
They both think they are big bad dogs. They are on the watch.

Brewzer
What a pretty dog. This is Brewzer's time to shine.

Brewzer, Jeff

Milo the Champion

Milo Milo

Back in 2002, a little deaf boy called Milo came to IMPS, and was adopted by a home in IN. Sadly, when he returned to IMPS earlier this year, he weighed 20 pounds! (He was 6lbs in 2002).

Well... look at him now :-)

Milo

From his foster mom:

"Hello,

I just wanted to inform all of you that our foster, Milo, has WON the petfit challenge for the Midwest. I am unsure of all of the prizes, and am kinda shocked that we won. The judges said that they fell in love with Milo, his pictures and story. I know that we have won a year of Hill's prescription diet, a trip to New York for the big competition. Milo gets to go too!! Our vet also won a trip to New York. We get to meet Jillian Michaels from the TV show "the Biggest Loser". The local media will have Milo's story on and we will be featured in newspapers and magazines throughout the Midwest. All I can say is there will be alot of publicity for IMPS. (and we thought we were busy now!!!)

I don't want to brag, but am just so proud of all that Milo has done. We wouldn'! t have been in this competition had Betsy R. not forwarded me the information. We are going to do something special for Betsy for helping us out!!

Remember -- no treats at the picnic for Milo, his BIG weighin will be on October 19th on the National petfit challenge tv show!! Oh, wow, I can't believe this!!! Now I have to lose ½ my body weight if I am going to go too!!! Thanks for all your encouraging words for Milo's weight loss... it has truly paid off!

Sandy K."

Happy Birthday Regis!

Regis

Mag,

I thought I would share a picture of Regis who was my first foster failure. Regis has been with me for two years now & celebrated his birthday this month. I'm not sure really how old he is but he came to me in December so I thought that would be a good month to celebrate. Please share this on the list. Thank,

Keith

Min Pin Brags: Abby

Tue, 22 May 2007 21:21:56 -0700 - from Denise

Abby

I have adopted 2 min pins from IMPS. My first was Tuesday, who has his info on the brags page. I adopted Abby several years back and never sent in an update. So, here it is... Abby was rescued in Indiana about 4 years ago. She came from Dorothy K. in IL, who could no longer keep her. Abby found a great home. She joined a pack and is definitely not like the others. When we got her, she had never really spent any time outside. She now spends most of her time outside by herself. She comes in to say hi when she feels like it. She loves to give kisses, especially after we put chapstick on. She likes to terrorize the other dogs and charge at them when they try to get on the couch. She is a great dog. Unfortunately she was diagnosed with an adrenal tumor that is not responsive to chemotherapy or any type of medication. We decided against surgery due to the high risk of death (33%). It's almost 2 years later and she is doing fine. Her side affect is excessive drinking, so we can live with that.

Attached is a picture of her and her poo family.... Paycheck, Abby, Credit, Tuesday, Barney & Monster, and a few pix of Abby.
