The Sunday Morning News

Above, Honey and Butter find an empty water bottle is fun to play tug-O-war with, it crinkles and makes great noise. 

We have some good news to share to start your new week.    First, Abby sends her regards and she had her humans post a response on her blog post that announced her new home.   We put the post below so that you can all enjoy her new life with her at her new Forever Home.
Abby says (as dictated to Paul 'cause she can't type very well): "Today was a good day, although I miss my foster dad. My new humans cheered me up with a walk in Park Hill this morning. Didn't see any squirrels, but I did bark at a snooty Bijon Frise. Napped mid-day, then went to Washington Park for another walk. After that, I went to the South Pearl shopping district and sampled the strawberry-lemonade sorbet at the Pajama Baking Company. Oh, and I also went shopping at a high-end Cat and Dog boutique and my new human bought me a a cow cheek chew bone. PS. Romeo is very handsome."

We are happy for Abby, we hope she gets lots of special treats and many ear rubs.   Practice that typing skill, then you won't have to wait for a human to type for you.   Stay in touch with us, we miss you. 

In the meantime we have been E-mailing with a couple in Albuquerque, New Mexico.   They were looking for two golden retrievers to fill a big hole in their lives.   When they learned that Honey and Butter were available, they had to know more.   We sent them detailed information and photos.    They asked us to hold Honey and Butter for them till they can make the trip up to Denver to pick them up.   

The Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies has volunteers in New Mexico, references were checked and volunteers went by to inspect the home to see if it was suitable for a pair of lovely ladies.   The report came back with praise for their home and their dedication to their Golden's. 

Butter and Honey are excited, they are ready to meet their new humans and make the trip to their new Forever Home.  "Road Trip", they are ready to go for a ride, any time, any car.  They are able to relax now, they are playing with Bella and I, they are running and enjoying life now that their future is no longer up in the air.     They enjoyed life a little too much today, they both jumped in the Koi pond, they came out dripping and smelling like fish.   Luckily it was 90 degrees so after they were given a bath with clean water, it took almost no time to dry out in our dry mountain air.   Maybe before they head for their new home we can get them into the groomers and send them home looking their best.

One of our readers asked how many rescue's we have had with Honey and Butter?   They are numbers 49 and 50.    We had wondered if we should have a celebration when foster number 50 arrived, Honey and Butter have suggested that serving bowls of ice cream to everyone would be a good way to celebrate, with a swim afterwards.   The problem is that while it was 90 today, it may not get into the 70's on Sunday which will make it hard to stay warm and dry off after a swim. 

Do any of you have a better idea of how to celebrate foster placement number 50?

  1. Mogley, this morning you have good news and good news. We thought Honey and Butterscotch wouldn't stay around too long, they are the ideal dogs. Of course we are not, but our mommie rescued us anyway. Abby seems to hit the jack pot, after all, she held out for that one perfect forever home for quite a while.

    How to celebrate the 49th and 50th fosterslings? Our suggestion is fireworks, lots of it.Our neighbor to the north, a place for cave diving, does it all the time. And everybody can see it, and everybody enjoys it. We just don't like the noise.

    Happy anniversary!

  2. WOW - 50. We think WE will eat ice cream in celebration for the 50 lucky souls.

  3. We will celebrate with you! It is good to know that these two ladies will be able to stay together.


  4. We think a good way to celebrate 50 fosters, is to post as many photos of your past fosters that you can.
    That will give us all a warm feeling.
    We are so happy that Honey & Butterscotch have found a forever home and that they will continue to be together.

  5. I think you should give everyone who comments on your blog a new car!!!


    Then ice cream for the puppies sounds like a great idea! :)

  6. Abby sends out a big bark "hello" to everyone and says she is so glad Honey and Butterscotch found a home. They are beautiful, charming Goldens! By the way, Abby finally has her very own pet squirrel. Lee found a squeaky toy furry life-size squirrel at Target and Abby carries it everywhere.

  7. Ice Cream sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. Farley said he'll be right over to help! Congratulations and thank you for helping 50 precious lives. We are so glad the Butter and Honey already have humans lined up :)

  8. Ice cream and a big party. 50 is a huge number to reach - you do good work and deserve to celebrate.

  9. Neeli says Ice cream is a GReat way to celebrate! She'll take a couple of licks and bring some home to share with Apples too!
