Rhapsody & Kismet Wish You A Happy New Year!

Greetings & Happy New Year!

My name is Patrick and I am the proud papa to two Animatch adoptees; Rhapsody and Kismet. We send best wishes to Helen, Joanne, Sherri, Lori, Mike and Yolande and all the tireless volunteers at Animatch for a very Happy New Year!

Rhapsody is a 10 year old Miniature Poodle who we now call "Lily", as that was the name given by her Animatch foster family.

I adopted Lily just before Christmas. Lily shares her new forever home with Kismet, my gorgeous Bouvier des Flandres that I adopted from Animatch at Christmas in 2009! They both share me with Charlie, who was adopted from another organization and is a Miniature Poodle/Maltese cross. So I have three wonderful, unique personalities in my care and I could not be happier.

It's been a month since we brought Lily home and she is doing fabulous! Lily is quite the personality and a little Diva used to receiving all the attention of her humans and she has had to learn that there is an even bigger Diva already on the throne, both in personality and stature name Kizzy! The girls worked it out and the pecking order is now in place and everyone knows their place and I still cannot get over how fast dogs adapt. They just do.

Lily is now toilet trained and crate trained and resides at night in my room with Kismet and Charlie. Lily loves exploring our house and expansive backyard, curious as to what I am doing in my crafting rooms with all it's yarn and fabric. She is in very good health and very, very spry for a ten year old and can jump and run like the wind! She enjoys her many daily walks, so excited to go to the off-leash parks we visit and loves riding in the car but is still not sure about having to wear her seatbelt. She has the comfort of two other laps to sit and cuddle in when ever she wants and as I type this she is laying on my lap with her head on my arm, snoozing away.

Please know that Miss Kismet is doing great as ever. Our girl turns 5 this year! Kizzy has been very generous in welcoming Lily into the house and of her sharing me with yet another dog. My Bouvier des Flandres is in great health as well, all dogs just had their exams and she get's plenty of daily exercise and affection. You should see her gorgeous long hair on her head! Such a beauty! Kismet really sets the routine of my day and especially in this cold weather, it's nothing for her to be outside and so she keeps me very active in our daily romps to various off-leash parks where she can run and frolic and hunt squirrels. Her favourite activity!

I love both Kizzy and Lily so much, they are a wonderful constant throughout my day and I will continue to support Animatch in any way I can. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Take very good care. Patrick.
