Our MinPin Fun Day/Fund Raiser

Fun Day

Sun, 7 Mar 2004 16:30:53 -0500 - from Amy

Hi mag,

These are photos from our MinPin Fun Day/Fund Raiser. We raised $625!!! We rented a doggie day care center for 2 hours and did raffles and contests and blind auctions!! There were probably 30 MinPins there!! It was GREAT fun and totally easy to do. I just sent out emails to adoptive homes and volunteers and anyone else I thought might be interested. My agility instructor came and helped folks learn a few things.

For those who know Phoebe, Anita P.'s dog, she is in the photo below and is the tiniest one with the white face. She did great, although will probably need a chiropractic adjustment tomorrow!! She was a hoot!!

In one of the group photos I can identify folks from left to right...

Roscoe and Gabe

Wed, 24 Mar 2004 10:31:26 -0500 - from Amy

Roscoe

Hi mag,

This is Roscoe enjoying an afternoon sunbath on the cat perch.

Roscoe

Gabe

The other photos are of my old horse, Gabe. He is going to be 34 years old this spring!! Hard to believe when you look at him. I wish I had moved him so the manure pile wasn't in the background, but this was a nice shot that showed how plump and healthy he is!!!

Thanks, Amy IMPS Maine

Roscoe's Trial

Sun, 28 Mar 2004 07:04:28 -0500 - from Amy

Roscoe

Hi mag,

Here is a photo of Roscoe doing is sit-stay for an obedience trial. Poor little guy had to sit next to an IRISH WOLFHOUND!! He stayed nicely and got is CD obedience title that day!! I am VERY proud, as this little snot was doomed to be put to sleep in the shelter for biting. In an obedience trial the judge has to touch him and he would get very stressed. He would growl or curl his lip. I worked hard getting him over that and finally brave enough to enter trials. He had several trials he got very stressed, but a few he did awesome!!! This trial was one of the good days!! He did curl his lip a little at the judge, but I guess she simply didn't see it. Kind of like swearing under your breath and hoping your teacher doesn't hear you!! LOL!! The next level in obedience will not include the judge touching him, so it should be a lot easier!!

Cheers, Amy IMPS Maine

Amy's Dogs in Action

Mon, 2 Aug 2004 06:30:23 -0400 - from Amy

Colby

Hi mag!!!

These were taken this weekend at the Fryeburg USDAA show in Maine. The photographer put them on a CD for me, which is cool, so I can mess around with them and use them on the computer. :D Jess is the little brown dog who got me started on MinPins. She is a MinPin/Australian Shepherd mix. Roscoe is the dog with the EARS! Colby is the dog "flying" over that jump! She usually jumps 16", but is probably clearing 24"!!!! She is my most athletic dog!! Her thighs are "JETS"!!! She runs and runs and runs all day!! She has tremendous energy and enthusiasm and is such a hoot to watch! She doesn't normally jump so high and is much more efficient, but for some reason had springs that day!!

Cheers!! Amy IMPS Maine

Who ever said MinPins don't like water?????

Mon, 9 Aug 2004 13:01:17 -0400 - from Amy

Colby

Hi mag,

The dogs spent the day outside and Colby and Jess heard a chippie chirp. Thinking it was in their yard (it was all the way in the WOODS!!) they ran back and forth through the garden and along the rock wall looking for that darn chippie!! Colby got heated up from her "work" and since I didn't have the kiddie pool filled up she took the next best thing. Who ever said MinPins don't like water?????

Cheers, Amy IMPS Maine

Judd

Sat, 11 Sep 2004 09:16:54 -0400 - from Amy

Hi mag,

Below is a note about a little rescue named Judd. His owner couldn't care for him any more and as an "ole man" he needed a new home. A wonderful couple from Maine, Caryn and Tom, took him in and let him live out his days with them and their other adopted MinPin, Penny. Penny came as a special needs dog with degenerative joint disease. Penny has been on good food and supplements and swimming regiments and is doing great! Tom and Caryn have opened their hearts and home to these two dogs and this note sadly reports the passing of sweet ole Judd................


Judd

Hello all I hope things are going well for you all. It is in sadness that I send you this note, as today Judd has decided that it was time for him to see the light on the other side. Through Sadness and many a Tear the decision between the Doctor and us was that Judd was just in to much pain to let him stay with us comfortably. Ok to let you know what was wrong with him. He has not eaten anything in the last three days, so I made a call and got him to the vet. They did some testing and found that he was very anemic, and his white blood cells were very low. Through x-rays and blood work the doc felt that there was little more to do as his Liver had expand so large as to push the heart into the esophagus which caused difficulty in breathing. He stated that the Lung showed signs of possible tumor spread from the Liver. He told me that he felt any other course of action was going to find things even worse. So we had to make that decision we all dread to make, but Caryn and I could see how uncomfortable he was and how much pain he was in. Tom

P.S. attached will be Judd's Photo feel free to post this note and photos of Judd on the web site. The third Photo also has Penny who is unbelievable she has decided that the house is her personal race track.

Colby & Penny

Thu, 28 Oct 2004 09:13:49 -0400 - from Tom & Caryn

Colby

Hello all here are some pics I took about an hour after Colby arrived home. He found his new chair on his own. He really like treats, and Penny shared some of her treats with him. You can see in the pics that they both took a liking to the dishwasher, what gives with that! Penny and Colby seem to be getting along so far, I don't think he noticed that cat when he walked by the chair she was sitting in or if he did he did not pay much attention to her. She (P.K.) just sat there and watched him walk on by. This was while he was exploring the house. We will be taking him to the vet on Monday to have him checked, want to make sure them ears are healing, and have those teeth done as soon as possible. Well We will give it a month or two and I will send some more pics of the two or three if the cat wil let us.

Amy's Xmas photo

Wed, 15 Dec 2004 05:48:14 -0500 - from Amy

Colby, Roscoe, Amy, Jess

Hi mag!!

Here is my 04 Christmas photo! It is just me because this is the photo I am using for my client cards. (I am a pet sitter/dog walker) The family photo may get done later, but for now this is all I have. The dogs are from left to right, Colby adopted through Dawn S. FIVE years ago (yikes, has it been that long?????), Roscoe a foster failure, and little Jess my MinPin/Aussie mix who started me on this MinPin road to craziness! :D

Roscoe Roscoe

And I am also sending Roscoe's Halloween costume. He didn't win this year at the local pet store contest. Stiff competition this year!

Colby, Jess Colby, Jess

And a photo of the girls (Colby is a girl) snuggling by the woodstove. Roscoe doesn't snuggle with canines. :P

Jewel

And the horse is my newest addition, Jewel. A sweet little Arab mare I just picked up. They said she did all these terrible things and was kind of hard to handle. Hah, she is the nicest, kindest, gentlest horse!!! :D

Penny and Colby

Tue, 11 Jan 2005 14:14:11 -0500 - from Tom and Caryn

Penny, Colby

Well here are some pictures we took over the Holiday season showing how Colby (adopted from Joy in KS and send to Maine last fall) is right at home, and how Penny (our first IMPS dog) and Colby are getting along. You can see how content Colby is getting ready for a nap on his favorite couch. You can see how white Penny is getting, but she still thinks she is a little kid. you can see the difference in size but no matter Penny still rules the roost. Can't wait until the next fun day so everyone can see Colby. We figure that Colby must have been abused by a male just by the way he acts. He is very skittish around men. He is fine around women though. In one of the photos you can see he is just happy as horse manure while the Grandson watches TV. He is fine with me now, but it has taken a lot of treats and just petting for him to get use to me. You can Post these pictures on the website just to let everyone see our two little pins.

Thanks

Here are some pictures of Ripley and Lancelot that you can put on the IMPS website. Notice how sad Ripley was on her birthday. Her birthday wish? To have a brother to play with!

Fun photos from Amy

Fri, 11 Feb 2005 18:30:46 -0500 - from Amy

Hi mag!

Some photos for the web site...........

Cartoon

The first is a cartoon one of my clients/friends gave me. I think it pretty well sums up a MinPin's perfect day. :D

Colby - mole hunting

Then there is Colby, forgetting how cold it is, hunting for moles. If I don't make her come back in she will stay outside shivering just by chance she might catch a mole. :P

Roscoe

Then I couldn't resist Roscoe baking in the sun. He was panting, he was getting SO hot! Eventually he gets down and goes and plops himself on the wood floor to cool off.

Roscoe

And Rich thought the Yin and Yang photo was cute!

Thanks Amy IMPS Maine

Mag,

Could you put this on the saluki list. This was one of my CT fosters and he was a doll.

Thanks and welcome back.
Phyllis


Mikey

Hi Phyllis,

We just wanted to say Happy New Year and share a picture of Mikey from the holidays.
Mikey is doing well. Becoming spoiled rotten... but we love him dearly.
He's learned some basic commands like "sit", "down", "stay", and "roll over". Now we're working on "give your paw"!
We hope you, your family, and all the min pins are doing well.

Sincerely,
Jennifer, Wali, and Mikey

Amy's kitty

Thu, 10 Mar 2005 09:41:25 -0500 - from Amy

Metis

Hi mag!!

Here are some photos of my little feral barn kitty. Poor thing got scared one day and got underfoot of one of the horses as it was leaving the barn. She and the horses have a nice relationship and they usually look out for her, but this time she just got under there so fast the horse couldn't avoid her. Broke her femur in two!! :( She is now in an X-pen in the foyer, but when I am around I let her loose in the house. She has always done well with the dogs in the barn, but now has had to put up with them in the house. She is definitely depressed, but as you can see making the best of her situation. She is to be on limited activity for 4-6 weeks!! This is week two! Sigh.............

That is my Colby snuggled under the fleece!

Cheers, Amy IMPS Maine

Spring Fun Day in Maine

Sun, 10 Apr 2005 06:07:01 -0400 - from Amy

Hi mag!

Here are some photos of our spring Fun Day. We rent a Doggie Day care for two hours and do raffles and contests and generally have a ball. This year one of our new volunteers got creative and got some really great prizes. He went to Hannafords grocery store and got them to donate a gift card. Then went to a sporting goods store and got a gift card there. And went to Pet Quarters and got them to donate two small travel beds. And a car wash donated a certificate for a free car wash!! How cool is that? He just went in and asked!!!

Hayden Phoebe

I love the ones of Tom picking the tickets. The dogs all though he had something for them to eat!!!

Tickets

That is my Roscoe in the leather coat and cowboy hat, Wanda's female in the Harley hat and jacket, Rocket in the clown suit, and Rocky (Stinky's new brother) in the Hawaiian shirt!

Kingston's New Digs!

Sun, 6 Nov 2005 7:17:52 -0500 - from Dorri

Kingston

To begin with, Kingston picked me. He was not the dog I was looking to add to my life. I was looking for a younger dog so we could grow old together. Who says you can't teach an older dog new tricks.

Phyllis S. definitely knows her dogs! And what a gracious host! I spent almost three hours with her and 25 minpins. What an afternoon! Of course, I could not remember all the names, but since I was going home with a new addition, I did not have to take all the dogs whose names I could not remember :) Probably because even George (the hunter) came to say hi.

Kingston Kingston

We are having a blast. Living close to the Cape Cod Canal is wonderful for Kingston. We walk twice a day, rain, snow or shine. He greets each dog and owner we meet with a cute little nubbie butt wiggle. He's made quite a few friends. His girlfriend, Lillie, is a gentle, lovable yellow lab that lives downstairs.

Kingston

I work at the Mass Maritime Academy and Kingston gets to go running with the students twice a week. He doesn't much like the office environment, so he only goes to work with me one day a week. Other days, he stays with Lillie either at her place or ours. He and Lillie love to walk together and go swimming. He has toured several lighthouses on the Cape and will travel to Virginia for Thanksgiving.

Kingston

Kingston will graduate Basic Obedience on 12 Nov and begin Advanced on 19 December. Agility may be in our future.

Thank you Phyllis S. and IMPS for my forever companion!

Keegan

Hi Mag,

Here's a picture of Keegan warming up by the fire. He was a foster dog that was staying with Dee in Maine and then was adopted by the Ott family in New Hampshire. Keegan just celebrated his 3 year anniversary with his special family. I'd say he looks pretty happy!

Warm Regards,
