Remy and Bella
Eric Doxtator on the Oneida Rez near Green Bay, Wisconsin told us at ICTMN that his young rez pup Remy is a lucky Beagle/Fox Terrier mix rescued from the Humane Society.
Their other pup, Bella, is a noble German Shepherd/Husky mix that in rez fashion is the cuzzin’ of Remy – looks like a cool rez pup family to us!
Rags and Nuhnupuch, aka Nunie
Brittney Mitchell from Fort Duchesne, Utah sent us these two cool rez pups who are surely the rez pup pride of Fort “D.” To comment about these cool pups, we just have to say, we love how Rags is happy and cheesy mugging for the camera while Nunie is looking more than dapper with that freshly groomed hair and blue ribbon…you both have got serious style!
Brandy Williams, a Lower Elwha tribal member and proudly proclaimed Rez dog lover is showing some rez dog huggin’ love to her awesome bud Puppers. Brandy tells us that Puppers is her ‘best friend, my baby, my protector and my everything. I am fortunate she had found me!’
Brandy tells us that she has always brought home neglected animals and got in trouble by her mom. After Puppers mother Snow adopted the family, after a few fearful weeks, Puppers learned that she had a safe family with the Williams. Puppers also eventually had her own pups in Brandy’s bedroom!’ We love that story!
Sancho, Bone, Pumpkin and Pistachio
Casandra Frutos from the Warm Springs Rez in Warm Springs, Oregon sent us these four awesome pics showing some rez pubby face-lickin’ love.
Casandra tells us two simple facts about these Rez pups that sum up their friendships… Pistachio and Pumpkin (the face lickers) equal love while Bone & Sancho, the mischievous pair equal partners in crime.
The Black and white Cha-weenie is Sancho who is 9-months, the Pit-English bulldog Bone is 4-months. The Tan Chihuahua Pumpkin is 3 and the accused face licker is their Corgi-Heeler, Pistachio is 2.
Biscuit T. Bearheart
Hey Biscuit, Wishbone, (the famous rat terrier) has nothing on you! Sheridan Bearheart from the Bad River Tribe from Odanah, Wisconsin sent us this regal photo of Biscuit in a noble pose…complete with a yellow duck chew toy.
Biscuit currently lives in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin and visits the rez as much as possible … Lookin good Biscuit!
