Super Sunday Coming

Photo above:   Nala is keeping a close watch on the clock, waiting for Sunday morning to come!  She is going on 13 years old and she intends to be the Queen of the Reunion.   She has shed most of her old "Outdoor Dog" coat, she still has a heavy mane and some heavy fur on her butt and tummy that has not yet fallen to the brush.   She is growing in her new "Pampered Golden" coat and she intends to celebrate her pampered life with her other rescue friends.    She will be celebrating a new life, she is no longer confined to a run in the back yard, she now lives indoors and sleeps beside the bed like a real Golden Retriever should.  Nala and hundreds more like her are the reason we celebrate once a year, they are the reason we work for the rescue. 

It is now Friday, only two more days to struggle through before we get to go to the annual Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies Reunion Picnic.   That's the annual GRRRRP, in case anyone was wondering. 

Because the event had to be rescheduled, some may not be able to attend, but we still expect to see 150 of the Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies Alumni.   It is our day to play, meet out old friends and celebrate our new lives.   Many of us, like Nala, came from very bad circumstances, so it is wonderful to be able to enjoy our freedom and our day in the lake.  It is our day to celebrate  new lives, new beginnings and old friends. 

Below, the start of the annual "Great Ball Toss", at 1:30 all of the participants are lined up on shore and balls with prize numbers on them are thrown, then we are all turned lose to claim our prize.    
Bring your retriever and join our party.   If you are not a member of Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies, you can still come and join GRRR at the picnic.   If you are not a Golden Retriever but you still like to swim, you are welcome to come, join our group, and play with us, the money is for a good cause, rescue! There will be plenty of tennis balls for everyone,  even food for the humans.   Go to for directions and details.  Be there or be dry!

  7. Mogley, I begged and pleaded with my humans to take me to the GRRR picnic, but they have a boring appointment back east here.
    I've wanted to have a go at being an honorary Golden.
    Remind the humans not to leave the camera behind this time! We all want pictures!
