Hello World, Welcome Abby to the pack!

Last night at Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) we picked up our new foster, Abby.   Abby has already proven herself to be a character.    She is a tennis-ball-aholic, a play-aholic, a mud-aholic, and a general goof ball.   She is so nice, sweet, well mannered, well trained and she is in overdrive all day long. 

She is seven or eight years old, but she can outrun and outplay most 3 year olds, like Bella and I.   We played tennis ball fetch, but I could not beat her to the ball.   We had to play fetch with four balls at once so Bella and I could get our turns.  She may be small, but she is very fast!

She came to GRRR from New Mexico where she had been in a shelter, so not much is known about her.   They did say she was good with cats, birds, other dogs and kids.   They also warned that if she did not have a doggy buddy, she would stage a break out and go look for a play mate.   So we are happy that she accepts us as being her friends. 
We will work on her resume for the adoption web site so that she can find a new home.  The resident bi-ped is threatening to delay posting her adoption profile as she may have to go to someone special.   If she does not get adopted soon it is going to get very crowded here in another 10 days.    Our three cousins, and their current foster, Saidy, will be coming to stay for a week so their family can go to New York.   Stay tuned, we will keep you posted on our progress.
