Here today, gone tomorrow is not just an expression. This morning (Sunday) we had a call that someone wanted to meet Sadie and Junior. Sadie and Junior jumped up in the SUV and went to see if there was any chemistry between them and the humans. Sadie was worried, Junior had learned to use the dog door quickly, she had not mastered it. When she first tried to come in the dog door, she stuck her nose in just as the vacuum cleaner went by and that scared her. She hoped they would not hold that against her.
The visits went better than hoped for. Stay at home humans, so there will be lots of attention all day long. Sadie and Junior demonstrated their walking skills on a leash and they demonstrated how the game fetch is supposed to be played. Sadie went directly home to a wonderful new home, taking her favorite orange foot ball toy with her, Junior will be going with a bag of tennis balls after his dental appointment. Mission accomplished!
On the way back home Junior put in an appearance at the annual "Pet, Craft and Gift" show at Tagawa Nursery. Tagawa has a huge greenhouse complex with everything from orchards, koi fish, to exotic trees and plants. They also have several resident cats that host an annual fund raiser for rescue groups. Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies had a craft sales booth and a bake sale booth. Junior was allowed to sample some of the special dog treats that were being given out. He enjoyed the attention, especially since he was no longer a homeless dog.
Thanks to all of you for helping Golden Retriever Rescue find homes for its clients.
