Correction to the Last Post

Even though huge THANK YOUs are still in order for Blue Seal of Bangor for hosting this Saturday's dog wash event, Mutt Nose Best were the Adoption Angels who have paid the adoption fees for Tony and Lady.  The story is that they fell in love with all three dogs at Saturday's event, but are already the owners of five other dogs.  On top of this, they provided free dog washes that day and had a donation can available for the Bangor Humane Society.  With over 100 dogs washed, you can bet that can was overflowing:)

Not only were they Adoption Angels for Tony and Lady, they were thrilled to hear that Izzy was in the process of being adopted.  Being the generous folks they are, Izzy was sent home with Mutt Nose Best products - what a treat for her and her new owners.

Now for a little sad news ~ it appears that both Tony and Lady are still available for adoption!  If you are interested in one of these dogs, contact the Bangor Humane Society today!  To read more about them, click on their names and it will take you to PetFinder.

Huge THANK YOUs!!!

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Blue Seal of Bangor and Mutt Knows Best (better known as "R U a Dirty Dog") for sponsoring such a successful event.  There are now over 100 clean dogs out and about in Bangor and donations $$$ were collected for the Bangor Humane Society.  Also, thank you to Roots of Wellness for the Reiki ~ it was a wonderful treat!

....and now I will let the dogs say a little about themselves and what they thought of the day:

Hey my name is Lady and I came to the shelter as a stray so not much is known about me.  I am a lab/boxer mix with a beautiful brindle coat.  I am about three years old and at some point had a litter of puppies ~ don't worry that part of my life has been fixed and no more puppies for me.

After the event on Saturday, it was obvious that I love other dogs ~ big and small.  I would have loved to run around with a few of them, but this was not a dog park and it was also not the time for running around.

I had a bit of Reiki performed on me and it was determined that I might benefit from some Bach Flower Therapy.  I'm not sure what this is all about, but I'm game if you are:)

When they made an announce me about me on 106.5, I was thrilled.  After this a picture was in order - Sit / Wait / Stay - I felt like a pro!

Within no time, it was time for a ride back to the Bangor Humane Society  ...and yes, I love car rides ~ especially if you have a moonroof!

Hi, I'm Tony!  You probably remember me from a previous post ....and yes I am still hanging out waiting for the perfect home.  I am a one year old (and yes that means I'm still a puppy) bulldog mix.  Today they had me wearing this banner to let everyone know that I was representing the Bangor Humane Society.

Not much is known about me since I came to the shelter as a stray, but it has become quite obvious that I like other dogs!  I just wish that there was more room to run and play rough with the other dogs at this event.  Did I say play rough ~ well, that's something I need work on.  I like to play a little rough and I am quite mouthy (and not in the vocal way).  As a reminder, I am still a puppy and can easily be broken of this.  A bonus is that mandatory training is part of my adoption agreement ~ this will help me learn to be the best dog anyone would ever want!

I want to send out my own personal THANK YOU to Bella Cakes for being sooo kind to me and giving me some sweetness in the food department  ... and also for taking a few minutes to look in my eyes and give me some hope!

Both dogs are now back at the Bangor Humane Society waiting for the perfect home!  ....and drum roll please      ................. Mutt Nose Best has become Adoption Angels for both Lady and Tony!!!!  This means that they are paying the adoption fees for both of these well deserving dogs!  So if you are looking for a dog to call your own, stop on by and check both of these dogs out!

FYI ~ just because a dog is residing at the Bangor Humane Society does NOT mean they are handicapped. It's just that their first owners were not the responsible kind:(

Tony goes to Petco

 Hey look at me ~ it's Tony at Petco!  I was chosen to represent the Bangor Humane Society at Petco's Adoption Day and things went splendidly!  In fact, Bangor Humane Society is welcome back at any time thanks to my great manners.  Well, you've heard enough PR for Petco and BHS ~ now a you need to hear about me.

I am a one year old boxer mix who is a bit mouthy ...and not in the vocal way.  My previous owner must have loved to play rough and allow me to also play this way.  If rough stuff isn't for you, a trainer at Petco gave a few tips on how to break this behavior  ....and I was very receptive.  By the way, mandatory training is part of the adoption agreement for me.  That's a good thing, since it will help me become the greatest dog ever while helping us bond for life.  Another thing about me is, I love other dogs - but not CATS!!!  I have been hanging out at Bangor Pet Resort and love it there ...and guess what, they love me too.

You are probably wondering about my day ~ LOVED IT!!!  Petco was a bit stressful at times.  What is it with folks wanting to put their snappy little dogs right in your face.  I fell for more than a few of the dogs though and wanted to run around and play.  These dogs did also, but we were told such play is for outside:(   Another thing, this place smells a million dog treats rolled into one.  I was extremely well behaved and never begged (well once or twice when the treat bag was left out, I tried to sneak one).  I usually waited for  the sit command and also a few down / stays.  This was when I showed my stuff and I did this for hours.  After a while, I was able to lay back and just chill.  Somebody actually caught me snoring.

After all of this stress, I needed a de-stresser.  I loved riding in the car and sat in the front seat just like a big dog!  So off to the Bangor City Forest we go for a walk.  I had a great time running in the field and was very surprised when we saw a few horses coming our way.  I stood as still as a statue at first, just watching.  Then I wanted to go meet them ....and maybe play.  This is when I pulled a bit, but not out of control. 

Well, here I am back at the Bangor Humane Society!  I did get a little rest on the way ride back here, so I am all ready for somebody to come and call me Tony, Their Forever Dog!  If you are looking for a great young dog, I may be the one for you.  Come check me out!!!
