Sandy and Abby

It was very boring around here for a while. Bella and I discovered that if we are pests the chauffeur will drive us to the big dog park in hopes that we will run our energy away. The picture above shows Bella and I spending another exciting day sleeping in the morning sun on the couch.

Suddenly it became an exciting day. I heard our personal chauffeur talking to Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) on the phone. That can only mean one thing; New Fosters! Then he took the car (without Bella and I) and left. When he came back he had two new friends for us to play with. We are foster parents again, we get to help two more dogs find their forever homes. What a wonderful day. Below, Sandy on the left and Abby on the right.
Below Sandy is checking out her new yard and looking to see if there are any squirrels in sight.
Below is Abby, looking for her buddy.
Sandy (11) and Abby (6) are life long friends. They are very nice, calm, mature Golden Retrievers. They are questionable because they made friends with the cats right way, any dog that does not chase a strange cat is a little suspect. They apparently have lived with a dog door before, they went in an out in the first few minutes they were here.

We all sat to get treats together, that is how we are properly introduced. Dogs that get treats together are friends together. Or at least that is what the our chauffeur thinks. It is as good of a reason to get treats as any reason. Maybe if we act like we are strangers they will introduce us again?

We spent some time outside running before it gets dark, they are still a little shy about playing with Bella and I, but they want to play so it won't be long before we are all romping together. They run together and if one goes out, the other goes out, just like two long time friends. They have been together so long that the rescue would like to place them together.

We are still getting acquainted so I will write more later. In the meantime, their partial stories are posted on the Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies web site.

  1. What beautiful girls you have to play with. I so hope you find a forever home for the two of them to be together. =)

  2. I read about the girls yesterday. How very fortunate they found you and Bella to help them through this confusing time. I am sure some wonderful forever home will be found for them so that they may live out their golden years together. They seem so very sweet and loving. I am looking forward to the rest of their story.

  3. Hey, Mogley! My grandmom just called and said they saved SEVENTY goldens from a bad place in central Va. just 15 miles from her home. Isn't that cool?!!

    love & wags,

  4. I just think you are pawsome to welcome such gorgeous girls to your home. You will all be pals soon and I really hope Sandy and Abby find a forever home like I did a while back! Give them licks and love from me, Sammie

  5. Wow mogley,
    Hanging with THREE women. WOW! Is Bella jealous of the new girls? Those two are gorgeous redheads. Andy and Abby are nice names. We hope that they find a furever home together. We think you and Bella should definitely pretend that you don't know Sandy and Abby, and that you don't even know each other, That way you'll all have to get introduced Wouldn't that be a TREAT. Hey that's punny.
