Buddy and Glory

Sat, 6 Feb 1999 22:05:44 -0500 - from Emily

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to give you all an update on Buddy and Glory. They are pretty much inseparable by now. Wherever one is the other HAS to be. They chase each other everywhere. It's a trip! They'll be sitting on the bed, jump off to run around the living room and then run back and jump on the bed and start the whole process all over again. They are like two little balls of fire. Sometimes I have to calm them both down because they get so wound up.

They haven't yet learned to share (as in, share a pillow). They've been forced to learn to share me, although Glory doesn't always like it. She's always preferred to sit in the fold of my legs. Well, Buddy likes to be near my face and Glory acts all upset. So, I try to give her a little extra love when I can because I don't want her to think I'm deserting her.

Buddy is a little sweetheart. He just loves and loves and loves. Last night, he slept with his little head on my shoulder! How adorable is that. And he just looks at me with the most loving little expression. He's definitely a doll!! Right now, he's snoozing on my lap. He's kind of gotten more attached to me. I think it's because Mike hasn't gotten to spend a lot of time with him because of his mom being in the hospital. I come home for lunch and get home first after work, so they see me more than Mike. And we've been at the hospital some this week--Mike every single night since Tuesday. But now Mike's mom is at home and doing a lot better. So, Mike can spend some time with the babies! In a few weeks, when his mom feels up to it, we'll take Buddy and Glory over to their house for a visit (and they also may spend a few days there with her to keep her company).

Glory and Buddy sent her the sweetest card. And they totally sympathized with her operation since Glory had a hysterectomy and Buddy had his operation also. I guess I should explain---Mike's mom had a hysterectomy because the doctor really suspected she had cancer (there was a mass behind her uterus). Four years ago, they suspected she had cancer and came back a month later and it had disappeared. And again this time, the tumor was benign. It's truly a testament to the power of prayer. Miracles do happen! But she's obviously in a great deal of pain. Anyway, she loves our babies--kept a picture of Glory by her bed with her card (we didn't yet have a pic of Buddy--we do now, but I'm not about to give it up!). She also kept a Doby beanie baby that we gave her by her bed. I said if you hold the ears straight up, it's Glory; if you fold the ears over, it's Buddy (he's cropped). That rendered a smile--laughing hurts her!

Well, just wanted you all to know that the IMPS dog in my home is doing great. And I tell everybody I know about him. My neighbor (who owns a minpin) is very interested in IMPS. But we just love Buddy. One question though ( I don't mean to be crude)-- he passes a lot of gas. Is there something to this? Glory doesn't have this habit. Is this normal for some minpins?

Well, Mike needs the computer and Buddy needs out. So, I'd better go!

Emily, Glory, and Buddy

more pics of my "kids"

Wed, 2 Jun 1999 14:28:06 -0400 - from Emily

Here are two of the latest pics of my two babies. As always, Glory is the one with the big ears. Buddy seems to be getting more comfortable with the camera. He doesn't have the usual "deer stuck in the headlights" expression that he used to have whenever I'd take a picture of him.

Glory,Buddy

The one picture looks kind of funny because they are snuggled in a cream blanket that didn't scan very well. But, I wanted everyone to see how inseparable they are--especially when they are snoozing. :-) Every once in a while, they don't want to sleep right next to each other. These nights are the ones in which I'm crammed between two minpins. But I will say this, whenever I need to move them while they are sleeping, they just curl back up without complaint.

Buddy,Glory,Froggie

The other picture is in one of their absolute favorite spots--the sun streaming through the window. Mike and I drag froggie wherever the sunlight is hitting and we have instantly occupied the dogs for at least an hour!

They are wonderful!!! For those of you who will receive this and don't yet have a pet--I highly recommend a minpin--or two for that matter!!!

Pictures of Buddy in SC and Scrappy

Thu, 15 Jun 2000 16:38:27 -0400 - from Emily

Buddy in the Dryer

Mag,

The first picture is of my Buddy. I was folding laundry one night and Buddy was watching me eagerly hoping I would throw it in the basket and let him snuggle in it. When I didn't, he took matters into his own paws. I heard a thump, turned around and Buddy was snuggled in the clothes in the dryer. Total Kodak moment!

Scrappy posing

The second picture is of Scrappy. He traveled from Florida to Ohio to live with my grandparents. This pictures was taken when he was still with me in SC.

Thanks!
Emily

Pictures of Lightning

Mon, 17 Jul 2000 13:05:19 -0400 - from Emily

Finally, I have pictures of the little baby Lightning. He's such a doll! He has grown about a pound since we rescued him (that makes him a whopping 2.5 pounds). We'll know more about him next week when he has all of the tests run on his heart. In the meantime, he's a ball of fire and energy! We have rigged pillows by the couch and the bed so he can climb up.

Baby Lightning sleeping with toy

The first picture is of him sleeping with his favorite toy. This toy is about as big as he is.

Baby Lightning posing

The second picture is the most cutest, sweetest puppy face I have ever seen. Who can resist?? Once he's available, this is the picture I want up on the IMPS site (along with the one of him sleeping with the toy)!

Baby Lightning playing with Buddy

The third picture is to demonstrate his size. Buddy is about 12 pounds, so you can tell how little Lightning is compared to him. Buddy lets Lightning crawl all over him--very patient boy (as long as Lightning doesn't start munching on Buddy's skin. Then, he isn't so patient).

Baby Lightning sleeping with Mike

The fourth picture is just in case you can't tell how small he is. This is the morning after we picked him up. I got up and Michael was still sleeping. So, I put the little baby in bed with Michael. I'm sure Michael will be thrilled to know that everyone will see his sleeping face. I need to send in a better picture of Michael so you can see how cute he is. In the meantime, I think this picture is too cute!

Thanks, Mag. As always, you're awesome!!

Pics of Niki and Emme!

Tue, 5 Dec 2000 15:10:20 -0500 - from Emily

Hey, Mag! I've received pictures from Cheryl Finney. She adopted Emme from us last November (known as Duchess at that time) and she just adopted Niki on Saturday. She was looking for a companion for Emme after her bird Rainbow died. Niki turned out to be a great fit. She's already sent pictures and said I could pass them on for the website!

Emme is the Black/Rust and Niki is the red. Both have the natural ears, but Niki's stand straight up! Gotta love those ears!

Thanks!

Paxton

Mag,

As promised, attached are photos of Paxton. They're still not great, but you can't expect too much from a Polaroid camera. If you can do anything with them at all, feel free.

Thanks so much!

Bernie and his family

Tue, 20 Mar 2001 10:37:31 -0500 - from Emily

Mag,

Please post this picture of Bernie and his family, Curtis and Tenita. Tenita has turned Bernie into a totally well-behaved Pin. It just goes to show that being in the right home does wonders for these babies!

Bernie and family

The second picture is of Teresa and me when we picked up three of the GA Peaches. Teresa (left) is holding Dixie and I'm holding Paxton (my blue baby boy).

Thanks so much!

Hampton with his new family

Tue, 13 Nov 2001 10:41:05 -0500 - from Emily

Hampton with his new family

Hey, Mag!

Please find a picture of my little Hampton with his new family. Jeremy is holding Katie and Heidi is holding Hampton. I really believe that Hampton knew that this was his true family. He was totally not himself and jumped right up into both of their laps for pets. And he even tried playing with Katie! :-)

We were very sad to see him go, but are thrilled for the little guy. He deserves a wonderful home and Michael and I feel that is exactly what he got!

Thanks!
Emily

Pic of Silver

Silver and family...

Mag, I have wanted to send a pic of Silver to the list for the longest time, can you please put it on the website when you have time? I adopted him Dec.2000, he is my baby boy. My daughter and I think there is nothing like him. Many times we call him "Silly" rather than Silver because he is so full of energy -- his little tricks will keep you laughing for hours, he is simply the best. Thanks, Sherry

I had a doberman and 1 min pin left. Harley cane to live with an old doberman Ranm he was 13, and a female bossy ,min pin Tinker. This past december we put Ram to sleep, Harley got to spend so much time with him he has taken on alot of his calm traits.

Harley is wonderfull dog loves to cuddle and sleep under blankets. He loves small children.

I am so thankfull for all the min pin rescue does. He has put such joy in my life. Here are a couple f pictures of him. He is still a tiny boy about 10 inches tall and about 8 pounds, Ilove him that way. One of his favorite past times is running our privacy fence with my neighbors boxers, He also loves watching for squirrels( he got that from my doberman). Thank you again Nancy, Tinker and Harley - Charlotte North carolina

Chip in Myrtle Beach, SC

Thu, 24 Jul 2008 11:59:25 -0700 (PDT) - from Jenny

Chip

Hello there,

I just wanted to share my success story with Chocolate Chip in SC. I adopted him last Fall from IMPS via Diane (foster home) in Wilmington, NC.
He's doing very well and has settled in finally. He was a little over weight and he's lost 5 lbs since he arrived. We take jogs and he especially loves the jogs on the beach. He thinks, however, that he is a BIRD dog and chases them with a vengeance. He recently jumped into the pond with his accomplice Lexy (my other min-pin) to chase a duck. Fortunately the duck swam faster than Min Pins! He's also almost over his anxiety...not sure what he went through in his past life, but he was very skittish, especially with men. He's just fine now and Lexy has learned to love him; as he follows her everywhere...he's codependent to say the least!
And I would think he's living the High life here at the Beach! They are currently in obedience training classes...and apparently you can teach an old dog new tricks. He's learning patience, which is a biggie for him!

thanks for all you all do at IMPS!
Take Care,
Jenny
