• It’s not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

  • Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

    It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..." _Hermann Hesse

More on Kismet

In answer to the question – OH YES, Aunt Molly was only too happy to play with tiny Kismet. Molly was a rescue in foster care during Kismet’s youngest puppy days. The two were fast friends and Molly seemed to think that Kissie was her puppy. She taught the youngster a lot before ultimately finding her own wonderful forever home.

So cute at 10 weeks of age.

Deceptively adorable! From the beginning Kismet was definitely the spark in the litter. No question as to the identity of  the Alpha Princess in this group!

She started out as one of the three really tiny newborns. For the first 3-5 days we were really worried about them. They had to be tube fed. Kismet’s foster mom said: ” Kismet was only a few days old the first time she really fought me when I was putting the tube down her. I knew at that point that she would live. I wondered how I was going to give her up.”

By the time she was 5 months old she’d become as striking as Morgan, her lovely Mom, and was busy making it clear to all of her housemates that she was boss.

Her brother Logan (Bogey) went to live next door. He was the first puppy to find his new home. Luckily for Kismet, Bogey remains a ready and willing play partner. They have connecting yards and play with each other just about every day.

Her other black-headed brother, Lucas, was also a willing play buddy.  Here they are on an adventure together not long before he departed for his forever home.

All in all, life was pretty darn good in her foster home. Kissie got to go swimming with some of the in-residence members of her foster family.
She got to play by the pool in the big backyard.

Certainly she has never suffered for lack of toys, or the inability to make a toy out of just about anything.

She has wonderful places to walk.

And run…

Playmates who know all the best places to nap.

And one who will swim in the pool along with her! (Myrtle, you’re a gem!)

They all know that Kissie must be the Center of Attention – sometimes literally!

She celebrated Christmas in a proper style.

Along the way she grew into this beautiful girl!

Oh she is still plenty full of herself!

And, as you’ve probably guessed, there was no need for Kissie to go anywhere to find it. She was already in the Perfect Home! Her mom, Denise, says:

“I really didn’t admit to myself, or anyone else that I wanted to keep her. But at age six months, when we’d been unable to find just the right home to handle her strong personality, I knew I’d become VERY attached to her and decided to adopt her myself.”

Denise goes on to say:

“Kis is a spitfire. She is a smart and busy girl. She enjoys going to training class to demonstrate behaviors as my demo dog. She loves having all of the other dogs in the house to play with and gets along with everyone. She is the presiding Princess. I LOVE her tail. It is so expressive. You can really tell what she’s thinking by her tail. Having her brother Bogey next door is wonderful. With a houseful of older dogs, having someone her own age with whom to play makes having a rambunctious pup much easier.

Kis is a fun pup to raise. As she grew she was always the smallest puppy with the biggest attitude. I knew she would be a challenge, but I like a challenge.”

Kismet is definitely the Princess of the litter. As this recent pictures shows, she is a very HAPPY princess. Definitely right at home in her own back yard! Welcome Home Kismet, we’re delighted to have you as part of the family!
