Failed Again! And we couldn’t be happier. We had asked Seven’s foster parents if they would be able to bring Seven in to the TRN store today to see if she would get adopted and they said no!

And look at that big old kiss Seven is giving her new Mom. That’s our 248th adoption – Hurray!

Lady, Fana and Hero- ALL ADOPTED!
8 Adoptions in Five Days!!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You can’t have failed to notice what an amazing week we’ve had. Eight adoptions in five days – wow! We’re delighted. But we couldn’t have done it without you all. Thank you for sharing our FB posts, thank you for spreading the word, thank you for mentioning to a friend who you know is looking for a dog, that there is a perfect one waiting for them at TRN, thank you for donating, thank you for coming into the store and buying toys and treats thus contributing money to the cause, thank you for creating a buzz about what we do. All of this helps us to continue to get beautiful dogs into their furever homes.
Occasionally we unwittingly play a part in an extraordinary story when we match people up with dogs. This story really is special. We have got permission from the family to share it and it once again, highlights the amazing support we all get from our beloved canine family members. Fair warning, you might need a Kleenex for this one.Last week we shared a beautiful picture of a lady and her son who had just adopted Rosie. One of our volunteers is friends with the son and knew that his Mom was looking for a dog so he had suggested Rosie. With the adoption completed, the mother and son had left the TRN store but because of various protocols with that particular dog, John arranged to meet them at PACC when he took the dogs back at 3.30pm to finalise everything with Rosie. About half an hour later John received a phone call informing him that at the time the lady was adopting Rosie her husband had passed away. Her husband was in hospice so it was not unexpected apparently but of course it was still a huge shock. John said not to worry about Rosie, he would put her on hold so they could get her at a later date. Imagine his surprise when the son called back and said no, his Mom still wanted to collect Rosie. She explained that she was sitting with Rosie at the exact time that her husband passed and she felt the dog had come into her life at that precise moment for a reason, to provide her with love and support at such a sad time. So Rosie was picked up and taken home and later that evening we received another text from the son explaining how Rosie and his Mom were cuddled up together and she was so grateful to have her there.Wow, I didn’t even get through typing this without crying. It just goes to prove, yet again how important dogs are to us and how they can be such a comfort in times of tragedy. We know that Rosie and her new Mom will get through this together and go on to build many happy memories in the future.
We have a number of dogs that are either with fosters or with family members until we can find them homes. They will come to the TRN store only when someone makes an appointment to meet them.
Our first ‘APPOINTMENT ONLY’ dog is Tank. How gorgeous is this guy? 😍
Tank is a 9 year old chow/lab mix. He weighs 65 pounds and he knows sit and will give you his paw too. Tank is taking no notice what people say about his age and is still young at heart and full of beans. He loves walks and basically doing whatever you are doing. He likes to be involved 😄
If you would like to meet this handsome chap please text John at 206 718 3309 to make an appointment.
Jenny is in ‘da house!
If you are looking for a sweet, loving friend Jenny could be the dog for you. She’s 9 years old, great with children, house broken, easy to walk and just as sweet as can be. She loves people and would be great addition to your family.
If you would like to meet her please text John at 206 718 3309
Companion Dog- Envy- Adopted
It doesn’t matter what your political leanings are or what age, race or religion you are, there is no denying that 2020 has been a really tough year. There has been a steep increase in mental health problems and loneliness has become a very serious issue. While older people have been very effected by the sense of isolation that has inevitably occurred due to covid, all generations have been struggling with this changed lifestyle.
We have a recommendation to help get you throu gh each day with a smile. A Companion Dog. Companion Dogs have got all their wild days out of the way and now are just content to be there for you and give you constant and unconditional love. They won’t ask you who you are going to vote for, they’ll just give you a big, soggy kiss. They won’t tell you to wear or not wear a mask, they’ll just greet you with a happy face and a wagging tail. And all those hugs you’ve been missing out on? They have an endless supply of them, just for you.
We are going to feature a new Companion Dog each week. These dogs are quiet and gentle, asking for nothing more than a gentle walk each day and a soft couch, bed, blanket (or all three!) to lie on. They are not high maintenance they are just total cuddlebugs and yes, great companions.
This weeks Companion Dog is Envy. She is 9 years old and the sweetest girl you could wish to meet. She loves to give kisses and to sleep with her head on your lap. Just look at these photos – don’t you feel better already? She’s going to be at the TRN store on Tuesday so if you think this is the companion you’ve been looking for, please text John at 206 718 3309 to arrange to meet her.
Daisy’s going home Here she is with her new brother and her new Mom. What a wonderful piece of news to be able to share with you all. This lovely dog has had such a tough life so far but now she will be loved and cherished.Our 175th adoption
Sweet Rocky is going to be at the TRN store tomorrow, Saturday and we really want to find this gentle soul his perfect home. If you know someone who would give this furry bundle of love a great home please spread the word. Rocky is 10 years old so he is looking for a quiet home where his primary role is to be a loving companion.
Text John at 206 718 3309 and make an appointment to meet this adorable dog.
OK, now we have prove of Rocky’s breed. As I expected he must be at least half Australian Shepard. Today, on day 3 at the ranch, he showed us that old dogs rock. He doesn’t care about his age (11 years) nor his arthritis (Mom gives him now joint supplements). So, I have to teach a second deaf dog NOT to chase horses….
Chick O & Toco- Adopted
This is Chick O Teen and Toco, both 8 yrs old. they are bonded and have been together since they were puppies. They want to be adopted together. The thing is a bonded pair is really just like having one because they always have a buddy to play with and they keep each other company, so when you leave they don’t feel alone.
People that adopt bonded pairs have really enjoyed the experience. Call/text John at 206-718-3309 to make an appointment to come and meet them at TRN adoption store at La Encantada shopping center.
Trouble & Sheeza- Adopted
Our bonded pair, Trouble and Sheeza really need to find a good home. Poor little Trouble, the Chihauhau, is so anxious and afraid. They just don’t understand why their owners never came back for them. Trouble is 4 years old and Sheeza is 11 years old. They are both as sweet as can be and totally devoted to each other. Do you have room in your heart for these two?
If you would like to meet them, please text John at 206 718 3309
My goodness this is one handsome fella. Jax is 6 years old and weighs 64 pounds. He’s good with children and good with other dogs so he’d make a fantastic family dog. He walks well on the leash and best of all, he’s a great big softie. He loves people
If you’d like to come into the TRN store to meet him, please text John at 206 718 3309

When I did the post about sweet little Blake being adopted I mentioned that the person who adopted him had just had to have their dog put down. Now I have permission to tell the full story and although it starts out sad, we know it has a happy endingJohn’s brother had a 6 yr old Jack Russel (Amy) that started having seizures about three weeks ago, he took her to the vet to have her checked out. They gave him some medication to see if that would help but it didn’t. The seizures increased to the point that he took her to the Specialty Hospital to have an MRI, Spinal Tab and Blood test. They kept her for over a week for observation and after all that they still didn’t know what was wrong. On Tuesday on advice from the vet, John’s brother reluctantly had to have his beloved companion euthanized. John, of course, went with him and needless to say it was a very traumatic experience. As John was driving him home from the vet, his brother was devastated and unable to speak. After saying nothing for about ten minutes, suddenly, through his tears he said “I have to get another dog, I can’t be without a dog.” With a heavy heart, John dropped him home and went on up to the TRN adoption store. He walked in and saw a little Jack Russel mix that was the exact colours of his brother’s dog. What are the chances of that? I can’t remember the last time we had a Jack Russel available for adoption! His name was Blake. John could not believe it, he took a picture of the little guy and texted it to his brother. He called him about ten minutes later to see if he got the picture. His brother answered the phone, and said “I’m on my way.” He came right up to the store and sat with Blake for a few minutes, it was love at first sight! Blake jumped up onto his lap and a little while later they left the store together. John’s brother called later and said how well he and Blake, now renamed Roger, were getting along and how happy he was that he had a loving new companion.I feel very lucky to be able to share such a beautiful story with you. This is a reminder of why we do what we do. The picture on the left is the poor, sweet dog, Amy, who had to be euthanized. The second picture is Blake/Roger and the third picture is the love match
Here is the picture of sweet Amy and now the new companion Roger!!
