Happy Sunday, Welcome Rosie

We knew it was going to be a good day.   Biscuits for breakfast, they come in packages of 10, but the humans only eat 8.   Lets see, 10, take away 8, leaves 2 left over, unloved and uneaten.     Bella and I each were given a biscuit for breakfast.      That is how I can tell it is going to be a good day, the day starts off with a treat. 

We were loaded into the SUV this noon and we were told we were going to the Spa, then we were going to pick up our new fosters.     They lied.   They took us to the Groomer over at Rescue Central, then they left us to be groomed, washed and dried while they went off to have dinner.    We thought it was going to be a day of pampering instead of a day of being locked in a crate with a big blower turned on us.    We did come out clean and dry, plus we got lots of attention.  We did get to go for a ride, it is always fun to go to Rescue Central and meet lots of other Goldens.   

We met Emma, a young (about 1 year) lady who has to go for a visit to the Doctor tomorrow for a check up and for a spaying operation.   We played with her in the play yard for a while to get acquainted, then Monday afternoon we will make a trip to pick her up from the Vet.   

We also met Rosie.   Rosie is older (8-9), larger, and very quiet.    Rosie came to Golden Retriever Rescue by a very round about way.    Her happy home was taking the grandchildren back in.   Because Rosie is large, the grandchildren's mom was not happy having Rosie in a small space with the children.  Rosie takes up a lot of room in any house.   Arrangements were made for Rosie to come to GRRR but somebody did not get the message.   Rosie was dropped off by mistake at the Dumb Friends League.   It took a week for the error to be corrected and Rosie was finally turned over to GRRR.    By then Rosie had caught kennel cough and she had to be kept with several other Golden's with kennel cough till it ran its course.     Today Rosie was sent home with us to begin her search for her new Forever Home. 

We will write more about Rosie and Emma later when we have them settled in.    Emma will be a quick placement, she won't be staying with us long, she is cute and young.    Rosie will take her time finding her perfect home, she is older and she says she will wait and make sure she gets the perfect home.

In the meantime, foster homes are getting crowded, so if you have ever wanted to foster a Golden Retriever, now is a good time to step forward.    Not just in Denver, where we are, but all over the country.   Shelters and rescues are full and help is needed.

  1. Well, I'm glad that you got Rosie over her kennel cough before it got bad. I just had a shot to keep me from getting the same thing!

  2. Hi Mogley; You brought some more smiles to our faces with your story of the biscuits and your detour trip for grooming....BOL......
    Glad you finally helped to get Rosie straightened out, we know you will take excellent care of her and Emma. Can't wait to see some photos.

  3. Well Mogley, your house will be full again. Playing and romping, swimming and digging. Sorry the way Rosie lost her home, but we know she will find a good forever home. And Emma will especially have a good time with you all.

    We don't get biscuits, but we do get bread sticks from Olive Garden whenever mommie goes there with our bi-ped brother. Yummy!

  4. Hi Mogley
    We can't wait to see some pictures of Emma & Rosie. Thank goodness you were able to locate Rosie and start taking care of her. BTW, Apples says that older ladies are much more easier to take care of than young puppies! She especially wishes Rosie (and Nala) the best in finding their new homes.
