Suzanne and I are so grateful and appreciative of all the Toronto Humane Society did for us today in receiving our beloved Nicky (formerly Nicholas) into our loving home. We believe in synchronicity and it was synchronicity that led us to add our new family member to our home.

Amy was so good with us, explaining all the potential negatives, while accentuating the positives. In our hearts, we knew that Nicky was the dog for us and that he was going to be our little boy. Amy and her staff substantiated this. And the final result is, we’re home now with our beloved Nicky, and thoroughly enjoying his company as he settles into his new home. He’s adjusted quite quickly, including his off-limits area of the kitchen. He stops at the door and playfully rests his front paws “over the line”, so to speak, but knowing that he can watch, but not enter. He’s coming when he’s called. He’s playing with his toy (thank you for that donation). He’s totally responding to our love.

As we expected, he was so tired after a day of surprises and excitement. So now, he’s sacked out on the couch, only to raise his head briefly if we leave the room. I have yet to hear him bark. I almost want to create a situation just to hear what he sounds like!

So I send this email with a full sense of gratitude for Nicky, for you, and for all you do! Thank you!!

Please enjoy the attached pictures. As we mentioned to Amy, we’d already set up a stool for Nicky to perch on as he watched all the goings-on outside our window. That’s his spot, to keep an eye out for all that’s happening in our neighborhood, and he seems to be really enjoying that opportunity.

Blessings to you!

Gareth and Suzanne Marples
