“My beautiful Cavachon, Dusty Rose, is the brightest part of my every single day. I know that she somehow senses that the world is different now but not sure why or how. She continues to support my husband and me. She know that “we are all in this together”. I love her with all my heart. “
Cha Cha, Lexi and Simba
“It is a difficult time for everyone however I can’t imagine not having the company of my two (rescue SPCA) dogs and cat during this period of isolation.
They are truly calming and comforting and keep me going with a purpose . Besides daily grooming, feeding, and petting they are enjoying long walks often 3 times a day! I have to laugh when we return home as they crash on the couch exhausted but soon are ready for more! I am In my mid 70’s , the vulnerable age for Corona, keeping me much closer to home than I choose to be!
And being single I only see a neighbor or friend when outdoors and then those nasty New England rainy days arrive! My chihuahua, loves the treadmill so again we are constant companions exercising even when the rain keeps us inside.
So whether playing, walking, hanging out on the couch, or tucked in bed….although alone…..I certainly never feel lonely. I have three my best friends with me all the time!”
“My cat is master at getting cozy and when she does, I do too! I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I often sit with her on my lap when I think of something to get up and go, but then realize the only thing I really have to do is sit calmly, and be cozy and still. It’s a true Rx to be calm and cozy and still. She also often sits in my knee, like cat reiki, which had replacement surgery a few months ago and her warmth and weight help it stay nice and straight! She seems to know when it’s tired and lays on or near it. She’s a gem! So are you folks for caring for all the animals you watch over. She’s from your Stratham shelter and I’m so happy we connected!”
Hunter & His New Baby Sister
“10 years ago, my now-husband adopted Hunter from the New Hampshire SPCA, I was lucky enough to find them and join their family years later, and last week Hunter became a big brother! Hunter makes our hearts melt with how curious he becomes when his sister makes noises, and he brightens our days of social distancing by being the good, cuddly boy he is!”
