Nova — July 22, 2022


~ Nova ~

Just under two years ago, Nova found her forever home. In the time since then, she has brought endless love to her family and continues to brighten each and every day. 

In 2020, Nova’s humans saw her and her littermates online. They organised a visit and fell instantly in love with her. When they met Nova, she was happily sleeping on her back with her paws in front of her. Without a doubt, they knew she was a perfect fit. 

Having Nova has helped her humans hugely. She has taught them patience – especially when it came to training! Nova had A LOT of energy which made training fairly difficult. It made her human learn to breathe and take a step back when things got too tough. Through this, they grew closer and formed a stronger bond through working as a team.

At the end of each day, Nova is always excitedly waiting at the front door with a toy as she waits for her humans to return from work. At night, she curls up and sleeps on their pillows! This is always treasured time for both Nova and her humans. Simply being in each other’s company means so much. 

The impact that Nova has had on her family has been huge. She makes each day just a bit brighter and never fails to bring smiles to the faces of everyone she meets.

Grace and Rumble — August 18, 2021

Grace and Rumble

~ Grace and Rumble ~

In 2020, Grace met the adorable pup, Rumble. Ever since then, they have become inseparable. 

In April of last year, Rumble, a Swedish Vallhund, was born. He was adopted by Grace from a known breeder in Dunedin, New Zealand. Immediately after seeing his sweet little face, Grace fell in love. He was a very cheeky puppy and was full of life. It was without a doubt from that moment that he found his forever home. 

With her career, Grace can get quite stressed. It’s an emotionally challenging area to work in and can make it hard to separate work from her personal life at times. However, since having Rumble, she has found things being a lot easier. She can come home to a wiggly and excited dog! 

No matter what may be happening in Grace’s life, Rumble never fails to make her laugh and smile. As well as this, Grace has been encouraged to go out more with Rumble. From going on walks together, exploring new places, and more. It has helped Grace’s overall wellbeing. Of course, they also love to relax on the couch together after a long and busy day!

The love that both Grace and Rumble share for each other is very special. They have such a great bond and it is obvious how much they care for one another.
