Here are the two newest feline members of our family. They are both boys. I am now outnumbered 7 to 2.
The black kitty is Lyric and he is now 1.5 years old. He was found starved nearly to death in the parking lot of my husband's work in
Pawtucket. His front foot was badly deformed, we thought it was broken. However, upon further examination by our vet, it was
determined he had some missing bones in the leg. We were told we could amputate or wait until problems developed. So, that's what
we are doing … waiting because I cannot bare for him to lose his leg. He doesn't seem to be too bothered by it anyway and
still leaps ten feet in the air and can land just fine. The other kitty is Adonis. He is 8 months now.
In addition to the mutt mutts of my dreams, the collie of my dreams, and the cockatoo of my dreams, I have now realized the Bengal of my dreams.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into. He is hilarious but boy can he destroy and leap up to 7 feet straight up in the air … amazing.
As you can see, he and Lyric are inseparable … and I do mean inseparable. What a bond they have made.
They are like glue!!! Where one is the other will be. They have made a wonderful addition to our family just
like everyone before them. Now, I just need to realize the rest of my dreams, two horses, two peacocks,
two pot belly pigs, two large tortoise, two maine coons; do you see a pattern here???
Adonis is a little ham so getting pics is no problem. Here he is with his brother Lryic.

My sister and Lyric, what a sweetie.
Adonis curled up on Tyler; he loves to sleep in Ty's fur.
This is Bella. She came from the streets of Pawtucket,
starved nearly to death. She is semi feral; very unsure of home surroundings, nervous about
everything and dogs but definitely a lot better! She's a love with people and wild bunches of
love and fur. This is her very own purple room.
I can't believe no one ever inquired about Lucky. He is now 17 years old, still just a little incontinent,
but the love of our lives! He's sweet, not demanding, and well potty trained. His belly band has been
completely removed after two years!!!! It took me close to a year to potty train him properly, but it was
DONE AT 15 YEARS OF AGE! See, no one is ever too old to do a little training. It keeps the body fit and the mind sharp!
My boyz updated (Sept. 09):
- Caymen-I'm 13 years old now and still soo darn handsome!
- Tyler - I'm under 2 and huge! See how "beauty" I became.
- Cole - I am the brightest "star"…so obedient and loyal! I am cute as a button too.
- Lucky with his New Brother, Christmas 2008!
(Sept. 08) Meet the newest member of our family -- Tyler -- Our Rough Collie. I believe he was sent to us from above!
I've wanted a Collie my ENTIRE life but because I rescue, I thought it wasn't a possibility! Anyway,
he is the love of our life. He was supposed to train to be a therapy dog, but at 7 months, he is still
very excitable and jumping all over everyone...esp. children. We've worked really hard on this and
will continue to work on it in the hopes that he will calm down as he gets older.
Look at this boy...an Albino Doberman...from New York!
This is Pookie...we rescued her from a client's neighbor after two years of begging and pleading with the owners. She was left outside 24 hrs. a day,
7 days a week living a life of solitary confinement AND NEGLECT. After taking her to the vet, we learned that she had heartworms and after being
re-homed (in just one short month), she took a turn for the worst. Please do all you can to stop this abuse. I have pamphlets from ISAR on my web.
Please mail them as awareness piece to anyone you may see housing their dogs like this! I have an 80% success rate, using these materials, for
getting the dogs off their chains and out of their backyard prisons. This is all that we can do until the laws change.
Hi, my name is Lucky and I'm a male Bichon Frise. Not only am I wearing my fantabulous Red Sox Sweatshirt, but I'm cute as a button. I lost both of my parents last year. They died within 3 months of each other. I've been staying with my foster mom and dad (yolanda and mark) since last November but I haven't been able to find a home. Of course, they have fallen in love with me but are looking for a possible, awesome forever home for me. I have a couple of problems being 15 years old. I am a little incontinent and must wear a diaper and I have an infection in my bladder which causes me no problems but requires me to eat a special food. If you have a loving home for Lucky and would like to meet him, pleases contact Yolanda at 401-333-8826!
This is my Elexe, Cole and Lucky in their football and baseball sweatshirts. Go Pats and Red Sox and Congrats on a job well done!
We celebrated Cole's FIRST birthday this September. He's not a puppy anymore. All of Cole's closest friends were invited and they all had a blast. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BOOKING A PARTY FOR YOUR DOG, PLEASE CONTACT ME AT 401-261-3793!
Meet the newest member of our family--Cole. Our little aussie mix. He was supposed to be a 90 lb. Shepard/Newfoundland mix but we think he’s definitely an Australian Shepard. He was rescued from an ice storm..just wandering around by himself at 12 weeks. His rescuers thought someone had cruelly cut off his tail, but now I think he was born that way—the aussie way. He’s definitely a cutey pie and he is learning his basic commands so fast. He loves the word come cause it means a trillion cookies.
This is Moe & Caesar taking a nap together. Caesar is a feral cat that I rescued and hand socialized two years ago…he’s absolutely the sweetest cat I’ve ever had and he LOVES ALL DOGS AND BIRDS.
Here’s some Christmas Doggies or OOPS…I mean rein”dog”deer???
Did you ever see a bird sleep like this???? Chloe is sound asleep on the pillow with her daddy; and not even a claw on the ground..amazing!!!
This is Yolanda with her "Jealous Boy" Caymen and her two "Niece" dogs Trina
and Keyonna. My brother loves boxers.

Don't you wonder how they all get along? Here's Angel & Caymen waiting for treats.
Angel sitting on my bed...my husband and I wonder sometimes where
we will sleep. I spend many a night without covers or crouched on one
tiny end of the bed while Caymen, the cats, and our in home guests lay
sprawled out all over. Our "in my home" clients are treated like our
own...never crated or caged! Your pet must be completely potty trained
and must not be destructive, be socialized well with cats & dogs & other
pets & people too to be a candidate for "in my home" pamper sitting.
This is Angel with her babies, my Yorkie Client, that stays in my home.
This is our Moe Moe...in a very playful mood on Thanksgiving Day. He was playing
with our Caymen in the yard. He has 1/4-acre to run around and it's still not
enough. You should see him run!!! It's amazing.
This is our buddy Moe...our rescued Greyhound on his favorite couch. Daddy
& Moe fight for this spot nightly and Moe usually wins out.
This is my other baby Velvet...in front of her favorite place, THE
FISH TANK. She can spend hours just sitting there watching...sometimes
she hangs from the ledge...it's so funny...she loves the Algae eaters as
they race across the bottom of the tank.
This is our other baby, Elexe, getting some Thanksgiving
Turkey...she loves her treats!!!! We found her at Wes's Rib House...we
can't even go out to eat without taking home another baby.
Moe in his favorite position...he has the funniest positions that he sleeps in.
Caymen with Santa
This is the newest member of our extended family, my sister's baby and
my new puppy "niece", ZOE. We rescued her from the town pound on
12/4/02! Can you believe she was returned to the pound on two occasions
because she potty's too frequently???? From everything I know about
puppies, they all potty frequently. She's a lovely chocolate
lab/sheltie mix and we all adore her! She spent two days with me for
potty training and behavior/medical observation. I am happy to report
that she was potty trained in two short days and is A LOVELY, HAPPY,
Here are some of my in-home clients (can’t you see how much fun they are having)!

favorite place on the coach (right).

This, too, could be your dog at Yolanda’s Pampering Sitting Playville.
This is Kurt Zucker with his favorite rawhides and his favorite big bed. We supply the fun & beds, you supply the food & treats.
Here’s Kurt taking a snooze on his big bed! Of course he loves to keep his toys all around him.
This is Barney in his cutest Pajamas. They have a complete wardrobe for every occasion.
is Barney & Daisy playing with their favorite toys. Daisy loves
to play fetch. I always remind her that she's not a retriever.
Aren't they adorable?
This is Roxanne, passed out from playing all day. Roxy lives
with a house full of pets, including Gizmo, Romeo (one of
the puppies rescued from the pet expo drop off), kitties,
bunnies, and a hedge hog.
This is Gizmo...what a doll.
