DAHLIAOhhhhhhhhhh Ann....and everyone else at Milo Foundation.... Dahlia is wonderful! She is such a sweet, cuddly, affectionate and playful little doggie.

She's sleepy lots of the time, which is delightful since she likes to snuggle into our laps for some of her many naps...but then she also has delightful bursts of playful energy and dashes (fast!!!!) across the floors and chases and brings back her various toys...she loves to vault/leap over pillows placed on the floor to get to the toy she's chasing after and adds some drama by tumbling around as she grabs it and then brings it back to us...a delight!

On a more practical level, she also seems to know the "commands" sit, stay, come and go get it.

She didn't eat the first food we bought for her, so we got her some new food (freeze dried raw meat, I think) from Pet Food Express and she now eats well and seem to enjoy this food. Can you see that we're delighted to have her join our lives?

We've only left her by herself in the house for two hours several days and she seemed fine when we came back. (everything in the house was intact when we returned...we wondered if she might chew, but not so far...but we did clear out everything that we thought wouldn't be safe for her to chew on and shut the extra bedroom doors while we were gone).

I'll attach a photo page I put together a few days ago with photos of her. We sent the photo page to several close friends who knew how deeply we had grieved for, and missed, our dog Denali...who died in June 2013. And now we get to share our home, happiness, love and lives with Dahlia. ( btw we also seem to be calling her Lila ).

Thank you so much to all of you at Milo Foundation for rescuing Dahlia (and all of the other dogs, too) and choosing to send her home with Peter and me....our hearts are bursting with appreciation for your kindness!

Warmly, Kathy and Peter

WHITNEY PUP FIVEOur little one (Chana, formerly Teagen) is adjusting to life with humans! She has gained 10 pounds since coming to stay with us, she sleeps so well at night, loves playing with doggies at the park and exploring on the trails outside of Fairfax. She just had her first vet appointment and the vet said she was following T and her family on the milo website. We are so happy to have her in our life and grateful to all of the devoted people at Milo and Jen (her amazing foster mom).

Thank you so much!! You guys are amazing! We've met quite a few happy Milo families since adopting T.

Warm regards and many thanks for a job very well done,

Trina and Andy

ROCKETDear Milo,

I wanted to share my story adopting 14 year old Rocket. I showed up at Milo shortly after ‘Harley’ my kitty of 18 years passed away. I wasn’t planning to adopt just yet, but thought I could help by offering a foster home. I told Milo that this wasn’t about me… so just point me to the cat that most needs a foster home. They all said ‘Rocket’. She was nearly 14, her mom moved to a senior home & couldn’t take her, & brother cat was already adopted.

So… fine… I’ll take Rocket! She threw up twice on the ride home & didn’t talk at all like ‘Harley’ did. But what a sweetie-pie! She is actually a ‘Ragamuffin’ cat & loves being held and draping in your arms.

At first I couldn’t understand why anyone would name such a beautiful feminine cat ‘Rocket’. I quickly figured out how she got that name. She is super fast & full of energy! It took me maybe 1 week to realize there was no way I was returning a 14 year old cat. So we made it official. Rocket has now been my baby for 3 years.

Now 17 years old, she is still full of energy & is quite the funny character. She LOVES playing with all her toys & is amazing at catching & tossing her ball toys. Sometimes very early in the morning I can hear her downstairs running around at full speed & playing with her toys. It always makes me smile.

I knew when the time came to adopt a cat I would adopt a cat already a few years old … but I NEVER thought I would adopt a 14 year cat. What I want everyone to know is ‘don’t be afraid to adopt a senior’. This has been the most amazing experience & I would happily do it again.

I LOVE ROCKET! Thank you Milo!
