Billy Vito (on the left with packs) and Chai Bella (right) were both adopted from Rocket Dog Rescue. Chai, a pit bull mix, came first in May of 2003. At three months old she was on her way to the euthanasia room at ACC when Pali literally snatched her from the hands of death and set her on course for The Duchy of Choo. Four years later she is the sweetest most goofiest dog on the planet. Absolutely full of character, she is kind, loyal, loves mostly eveyone (even the gopher that is digging up my yard) and quite smart too. Her favorite things are hiking in the mountains, snuggling and giving love, her little soccer ball, and snacks. Bubby, one of her thousand nicknames, will wiggle uncontrolably for a Newmans Own Organic dog treat.
A possible mix of greyhound and cattle dog, “Cousin” Vito, (as
he’s known to those who love him) came to stay in January of 2005.
Originally he was to be just a foster, as I had just lost my Luna (the
dog love of my life) and wasn’t sure I was ready for another . . .but
Billy had other ideas. He had been abandoned and left to die after
eating a box of rat poison. While regaining his health with RDR, he
received such good training that I hardly had to work with him at all.
He came with all his commands pretty well learned, and basically just
had to “settle in” Now at three years old and firmly established in The Duchy, he is an enthusiastic nut case who loves his ball, hiking, his ball, Chai, his
ball, and his ball. If you have a ball, he will be your friend. If you
have a “chuck-it” he will worship you.
Thank you Pali, for doing what you do. I love my dogs!
