Skylar, Angus and Finn

I've been very neglectful in posting photos of my favourite furries.
As requested, I present Skylar, Angus and Finn.

Skylar and her new favourite bone.

Angus showing off his brand new tag ordered from

Finn says "Lookit my new tag too".

Mesmerized by the bubbles.

Did I mention she loves this bone?

I love this one for some reason. The way her head is cocked looks so sweet.

Lookin' for dogs to bark at.

Hanging with cousin Abby, a Lab/Pittie mix, so sweet but sneaky:evil:

Her most favourite position to sleep in. Weird, and not very lady-like.

:cloud9: would you look at her ! So much has changed since we first saw her ! :thumbs up Is it going better with her and the cats ? And have you moved ?

September 27th, 2008, 11:21 AM
Yup, we've moved. We've been in the house for about a month.
Skylar and the cats get along 100X better than they did at first. The cats have definitely relaxed around her, but they still keep their distance from her. There's no snuggling and I don't think there will ever be. We're happy as long as they accept each other's existence.

Skylar gives a little chase now and then, but the cats bounce back pretty fast and shoot some dirty looks her way:D

Are those tags heavy?

Are those tags heavy?

Nope. Angus and Finn don't seem to mind them. They're the smallest tags in that style available through the store.

I love the little tags. Can you engrave the tags?

Me too! that's an awesome spot especially for kitties, it looks like it is open to stairs going down

WOW....Skyler is looking great. :thumbs up I love the second pic of her with the bone. :cloud9:

Finn and Angus are looking so purrty too :lovestruck: but wish they had have been facing the camera. :)

Wow, Sklyar is looking great, you did a wonderful job with her :thumbs up :grouphug: I remember when she was first found, I don't think she had too many days left in her :sad:

Your new house looks wonderful, what a great shelf for the kitties :lovestruck:

September 28th, 2008, 03:36 PM
Everyone's looking pretty spiffy. I love the bubble pic too!

September 28th, 2008, 04:25 PM
Thanks all! We've worked really hard to make our little family work and we're sure glad we stuck it out, because Skylar is truly a super dog and we can't imagine life without her now.

The cats love that ledge by the stairs, it's their safety spot. When they hear the jingle of Skylar's tags, they head for higher ground.

AG, the tags are engraved on the back, but you can't fit very much on that particular size. We only have their names and our phone # (which we had to put on two lines, area code on one line and the rest of the phone number on the next line).

Rainbow, I'll see what I can do about getting some pics from the front:D

Stacer,I forgot the story about how Skylar was lucky enough to end up at your house,but she looks great and very happy:thumbs up
Finn and Angus look really sweet,it's great they all accept each other:lovestruck:

September 28th, 2008, 06:16 PM
I agree with everyone else. Hard to believe Skylar is the same pup!! :highfive: to you for the job you have done with her!! :cloud9::angel:
She looks fantastic!!
Kitties of course.......... :cloud9:
The house looks neat too!

September 28th, 2008, 07:41 PM
thank you stacer for posting the pictures........shes so gorgeous!!!! what a wonderful life she has with you guys

September 28th, 2008, 07:47 PM
Wow, Skylar looks so awesome!! Hard to believe she ever looked like she did when she was found. How long ago was that anyway? What does she weigh now?

Oh, the kitties are really cute too!!

September 29th, 2008, 05:26 AM
When I first saw your pics of Skylar, I thought maybe you made a mistake. I can't believe that's Skylar :eek:. Wow, does she ever look different! So healthy and happy :cloud9:.

Oh, I think she really likes that bone :D.

September 29th, 2008, 07:00 AM
she was found in March of 08

September 29th, 2008, 07:10 AM
I hope you don't mind that I post this link, this is Skylar when she was first found by Melinda:

September 29th, 2008, 07:43 AM
Thank's L4H,now I remember that poor girl,no longer poor,thank's to Melinda and Stacer,a wonderful happy ending,or I should say,beginning for Skylar:thumbs up

Wow, going back to that thread and seeing the pics of her when she was so emaciated makes me so sad. I still worry that there may be long term damage that hasn't shown itself yet. Although, a few weeks after we got her we took her to the vet becasue of an eye infection and they did some canine wellness tests to check out her organs and everything came back normal.

I'm not sure how much she weighs now, probably around 70lbs, she's solid muscle for sure. Nathan takes her jogging with him and we go on regular hikes at the conservation areas around here.

We're hoping that next summer Melinda and her hubby will stop by our house on their way to a motorcycle gathering. Who knows, maybe we'll take a drive east some weekend before then ;)

September 29th, 2008, 06:37 PM
Wow, hard to believe that in just over 6 months she has changed so much. Looking back at her original pics from March gave me goosebumps and I have seen them many times before. She is one lucky dog!!!

Wow, Skylar is looking fabulous :lovestruck: and the kitties look very handsome :lovestruck: with the new tags.

Thanks TeriM! We're pretty proud of her, she's such a friendly, happy pup.
