Hi Everyone!
I saw snow today! Boy did I have fun. Daddy threw snowballs at me and I was trying to catch them. We went into New York and Mommy was driving in a snow storm. We are going to be home for Thanksgiving then we'll have to leave again on Friday to Billings, Montana for more snow!
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone!
Daddy and I are in Florida. We are waiting on our pick-up in Miami. Mommy is coming with us! I can't wait. I don't get to see her much. Daddy said he going to do a whole lot of sleeping while Mommy drives. I am excited that I might get to be on the computer at the Nashville Humane Association. Now everyone will get to see how great it is to be adopted and get to travel with your family!
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone!
Well we are making another run to south Texas. We will be close to the Mexican border. We will wait in Houston on our load. Daddy is practicing his guitar. Man, I hope he doesn't start singing because even I know I sing better than he does. Woowwhoohoo!
See ya soon,
Duke

Hey All!
We are in Pineville, LA waiting to get unloaded. It is raining pretty hard right now. I got Daddy good today. He was laying down resting and I started to cry like I had to go out and do my business. Well, we went out and I ran straight to the biggest puddle I could find and started playing! I didn't even have to do any business.
Gotta love me!

Hey Friends!
We've been so busy lately. Dad says we won't get home until Saturday night. It's been getting cold and I like to curl up by Daddy's feet while he is driving. I was on T.V. this week. I'm a star! Mom would have to tell you about it! Daddy says I might get to see snow soon. What's snow? It sounds neat.
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Friends!
Guess where we are? Oh, you know we are in Georgia. Oink! Oink! We've had a busy week, we went to TN, KY, GA, & FL. I hear many of my friends are getting adopted and I'm so happy for them. I hope they have good families like I do. Dad is driving the truck and I am driving him nuts! Ha! Ha!
Love to all,
Duke

Duke

Hi Everyone!
Meet my new friends on the front. They talk funny! Daddy and I are in PA on our way to Cincinnati. Our truck broke down and we had to go in a different one. I don't like this one because I can't put my head on Daddy's and look out the window. When he drives, Dad tells people on the C.B. he has to watch what he feeds me because it smells funny in the truck. Mom says he blames me for what he does!
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone!
This week Daddy and I went to AL, LA, Houston, TX, OK & Kansas. We are on our way back to Cincinnati. We saw what the storm had done to Texas. My school is going ok and I'm learning a lot. So many treats! When we stopped to pay a toll, I stuck my head out Dad's window and the lady said 'How cute!' I thought to myself, - Yes I am. She gave me a treat.
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone! Back on the road with Daddy. We are in Houston, TX. Last night we stayed in Louisiana and it rained a lot. When it stopped we went for a walk and it rained again. We got soaked, but I wanted to play. We had a good laugh. I like sleeping with Daddy in his arm, but he snores, so I curl up on his seat. I like standing on the cabinet behind Daddy when he drives. Mommy has a photo.
Love,
Duke
P.S. To my Canine Friends back at Nashville Humane Association- Bow Wow Bark Bark and to the Felines- Meow, Yeow, Wink, Wink!

Hi Everyone!
We are not in this state anymore. We went to Texas again. We woke up in Dallas this morning and when we went for a walk I saw two rabbits. I wanted to chase them but Daddy wouldn't let me. I am having a lot of fun. Daddy and I go to school on Saturday. I wonder what I can teach him. Ha Ha.
Love,
Duke.

Hi Everyone!
We seem to keep having busy weeks. We had 7 deliveries in TN then to Cincinnati and on to New York. Me and Daddy put on a lot of miles. I think I have Daddy figured out. When we stop and go for a walk so I can smell the roses we get back in the truck, so I take my time. Boy does Daddy not like that. But oh well, I'm just a baby. I'll see what trick I can teach him next week.
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone!
Wow, I don't know where to begin. We are at the largest truck stop in Iowa. Mommy is driving and Daddy is sleeping. We have to be in Meridian Idaho by Monday. I can't wait to see more snow! Mommy & Daddy don't want none. Me and my brothers are doing fine.
Love to all,
Duke.

Hi Everyone!
We spent the day in Idaho. Daddy says that I must have watered the plant that this potato came from. So far everything is going ok. Mommy keeps taking the extension cord away from me that I like to chew on. Idaho (I don't know) why? LOL! It was nice yesterday, but the weather is supposed to get yucky soon. Our next stop is Oregon.
Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone!
I wanted to send you a photo of me teaching Daddy how to drive. He's learning. We had a real busy week. We went 6,000 miles! Mommy got us home Sunday night. We are waiting to get our truck fixed. We don't know where we are going next. Our truck is being worked on in Nashville today and it should be done soon.

Oh, I almost forgot, last Monday we had to spend the whole day in a truck stop in Boise, Idaho because we couldn't deliver until Tues. Anyway, it was nice and warm out and I was outside, mom went in to do laundry and Dad was working on his C.B. Radio. The window was open on the truck and the little dude (Little Tex) jumped out of the truck! It was funny to see Daddy chasing after him. Daddy now calls him Flying Taco. What's a Taco?

Love to all,
Duke

Hi Everyone!
I am so happy with my new family. I have a great mother & father and 4 brothers! I am with my Daddy now in the Big Truck and so far we have been to AL, MS, LA, TX, MD, & on our way to Ohio. My dad stops a lot for me. When we stop Dad takes me for long walks. So many trees and so little time! I also like to sleep in Daddy's bunk.
Tell everyone Hi.
Love, Duke

Crockett
clear

We adopted Crockett in May 2007. Crockett is a miniature pinscher/beagle mix and is a pure mess. He is now a little over 2 years old. When we adopted Crockett, I had just gone through a hardship in my life, and there was nothing better than having a furry friend there to cheer me up.

Crockett lives with my parents in South Carolina. My mom's father passed away in July 2008, and Crockett has been the best therapy for her ever. She is his love. Sometimes we swear he knows what we're saying when he cocks that head to the side. Adopting through NHA has been the best experience ever, and such a blessing in my life & my parent's.

Thank you NHA!

Colby
clear

Colby, a Labrador Retriever was certified as a Tennessee Highway Patrol, Drug Detector Dog. Colby was adopted from the Nashville Humane Association in September, 2008. Little did Colby know he was to gain a partner in life and perform a valuable service to the citizens of the Great State of Tennessee.

Colby was assigned a handler to assist him in this process. From the early beginnings of training, it was easy to see Trooper Silva and Colby were going to be more than just a handler and dog team. The two instantly bonded. During the eleven weeks of intense training it was easy to see Colby was a natural. Colby did not just become a working dog. He also worked his way into the hearts of his new family. Colby's greatest thrill, besides working soon became the young daughter of Trooper Silva. She reminds daddy to bring Colby home after work.

On behalf of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Canine Unit, thank you for putting Colby and us in touch. He is now, not only enjoying life, but performing a valuable service. I'm sure at a future date; there will be other Colby's. There are so many great dogs that need homes; I'm pleased we could assist with this one.
