Update on Lexie and Thomas!

Both of these beautiful dogs were were adopted by the same wonderful family in Vermont. Thomas (the handsome black Lab mix) was adopted in March 2008 and was a feral dog who came from a sanctuary with 93 other dogs. He took a very long time and a lot of love and patience but now is a well-adjusted happy boy living with lots of other dogs on a great big piece of land in northern Vermont! He is a marvelous foster brother and he welcomed Lexie (the beautiful golden-colored girl) as a little sister in March of 2009!

Here's what they have to say:

"This year, she (Lexie) has discovered sleeping under the covers. When she gets cold, she will paw at you in bed and when you lift the covers, she zips in. She's a good cuddler when she wants to be.

You wouldn't believe how he (Thomas) turned out. He loves me to death and he treats Steve almost like he does me. He really likes to be around us, especially in the kitchen. He is really playful and loves other dogs. I can 'make' him crawl up on the couch with me, but last night was the very first time he actually came over (twice) and crawled up there without anything from me. He almost always sleeps with me, though!

Thanks, Steven and Deb, for all of your love and patience. Lexie and Thomas are very lucky indeed!
