R.O.A.R. Squad: Rescue Owners Are Rockin’
Check out the latest R.O.A.R. Squad members: Introducing Skye and Rob! Hey guys!
The Rockin’ Rescue Owners: Skye McFarlane and my husband Rob Masiello. While I grew up around rescue pets in upstate NY (my dad actually ran a cat rescue for a while), Holly is Rob’s first pet of any kind. I am a former journalist and current English teacher. Rob is a Wall Street stock trader.
The Gorgeous Pup: Holland, an All-American Mutt
The Heavenly Rescue Org: We adopted Holly in February from Animal Haven
Tough Start: The Hollster had a rough start in life. She was abandoned at just 4 weeks old with a dislocated hip and a belly full of worms.
Turned Around: Fortunately, the amazing Animal Haven staff fostered her and nursed her back to health. Now she is one of the most athletic dogs I’ve ever been around!
- Being a boozehound (seriously, she’ll do anything to get a sip of your wine or beer).
- Making us regret wasting money on dog gates. She jumped over the 22″ and 28″ gates and she removed the stabilizing feet from the 32″ gate before knocking it over. She was kind enough to bring us the feet. In bed. At 1am.
- Running. Preferably after other dogs at the dog park, but “into the woods,” “after a ball,” and “in crazy circles” are also acceptable.
- “Helping” us do work on the computer by making sure our laps are warm and protected (see picture to the left).
Where: Lower Manhattan, New York
