A New Year, A New Beginning

We're doing a happy dance around here as both Sabrina and Humphrey found themselves in foster to adopt home over the holidays! (Maybe it was all those kisses they gave to you-know-who) Two senior dogs in one week is a record around here, often older dogs wait for months and months before the right home comes knocking. We know that their new homes will be filled with much joy and silliness in the upcoming year.

And A Big Shout Out!

Humphrey, and the rest of us around here at Bully Buddies would like to give a big shout out to everyone who helps us. We couldn't do what we do around here without all of our generous volunteers, who give their time, money and love to the dogs in our care. We'd especially like to thank Leanne from LS Photography who donated her time and amazing photos for our calendar this year. You can check out her webpage at Melanie for actually making our calender and Wendy for re-organizing us when things were not going so smoothly! Jack and Jill Embroidery in Prince George for our awesome embroidered T-Shirts. And Stacy, who organized the embroidery and for your generous donation. Tanja from Shatzbatch who donated our oh so adorable onesies (and Otis too for being such a handsome model!) and Mike at Thriller for printing them for us. ( Precision Graphics Inc. ( for printing our calendars and 1 Hour Busines Cards for printing our greeting cards ( Seriously you guys rock and a big bully kiss for all of you.
From all of us to all of you thanks for another great year at Bully Buddies. Here's to 2009, we have many things to look forward to.
Happy Howlidays!

We saw someone kissing Santa Claus!

And it was our very own Sabrina and Humphrey! Van Pet was hosting a picture day with Santa. All proceeds went to the Royal City Humane Society. It was lots of fun. Sabrina is oh so cute:

And Humphrey, who liked Santa so much, he kept trying to crawl up on his lap. Good thing that beard was secure!

It's that time of year!

Goodbye Sweet Ella

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ella. She put up a valiant fight but unfortunately, she was laid to rest in the arms of her adoring mom on Sunday. Right up until the last, she was out there working hard at being a breed ambassador, wooing the crowds at the craft fair only a week prior. Her time with us was short but full. She was spoiled rotten and spent her days swimming, eating baked good from coffee shops (her favorite) and snuggling and kissing all she met. Her mom gave her the life that all dogs deserve. She will live on in our very happy memories of her, she truly was one in a million. Thank you all for your support with her initial fundraiser to help raise money for her vet bills, and now in her passing, thank you for your kind words and condolences.

And now, without further ado, Miss Ella:
