All gone!

Bella and I tried to tell them it was going to happen some day.     We tried to prevent it.

Finally it has happened.   The rescue took all of our fosters away.    All of them!   In one day! What a blow!

Saturday morning we took Coraline across town to meet a possible new home.   She met them and she completely sold herself to them.   They had several other goldens to look at, but they scarcely even glanced at them.   Coraline was in charge.  She was a lot like the movie, she was Gone in Sixty Seconds.

Then we came back home for a while for a short nap before our regularly scheduled nap that we take before the afternoon rest we have to prepare ourselves for the late afternoon nap to get energy enough for our evening nap before bedtime.    Of course we do slip in an occasional rest after our evening dinner, but that is just to rest up for our next nap and it scarcely qualifies as a nap.  But I don't have to tell you all about that, you already know.

Then we took Butter over to meet a family that was having a golden crisis.   They had not had a golden in their home for several months.   Since Butter was not sure she was ready for a new home yet, we left her with them for a few hours to see if they could get acquainted.   She met the cat, and decided he was a bore, no chasing or anything, so Butter moved on to explore the rest of the house and the accommodations for a nice lady.   When we returned later, she was asleep on the rug in the living room, but she woke up long enough to play ball for a time.   She decided that being an only dog offered a lot of opportunity for attention.   The house is in an area with a nice pond nearby where she can wade if she gets hot during her walks.   She has her own dog door so she never has to be confined again.  Butter, you have a wonderful home and we are so happy for you.

We are all out of foster play mates and we are looking forward to getting a new friend in the next several day.

  1. Oh my! YAY!! That was quick and wonderful!! They sound like wonderful homes!! Congratulations everyone!!

  2. I'm sorry you guys are all alone now, but happy to hear that Butter and Coraline found their perfect homes!


  3. KhonGRats to all of woo!

    Such a bittersweet post!

    Mom's Brittany passenger today might have been Coraline - the run sheet said Caroline but her paperwork said Coraline -

    By the end, Mom called her C-line!

  4. Now Mogley, don't get that empty nest syndrome. You and Bella will have many more fosters to play with and find them a good home. We are very happy for Coraline and Butter, you were part of it getting them back into the world that would not hurt them.

    Glad to hear about all your naps. I think we are just about having one long nap all Summer long. Either it is too hot to go outside or the rain is coming down in buckets.

  5. That's just the best story I've heard all week. Two homes for two wonderful dogs. Good show!!!

  6. So wonderful they found furever homes. Grandma's Goldens came from GRRR. We are meeting new furends by passing out awards and have one for you. Come on by and visit. We came over from Farley's blog.

  8. Wow, you must be in withdrawal. You're never without a foster.

  9. Wouldn't the world be great if there were no more dogs in need of foster care because every dog (and cat) had a loving, caring, safe home. Sigh. Enjoy your peace and quiet, because time will be short until another furry paw knocks on your door and asks if there is room in the inn.

  10. It's a good thing though? It means all the Golden's have homes, at least for a couple of days?
