A vet visit and Sage

Sage is still with us.   The photo above is his favorite photo.  It shows him in "full play" mode.   He loves to run and play with toys, balls, sticks, whatever he can find.    Sage has a couple more days with us.    He is waiting till this weekend when he will meet with a couple that is flying in from Chicago to see him.   He is just hanging out, enjoying his vacation before he has to go to a new home and go to work making people happy.    He says that it just proves that you can look far and wide, but you will have to go a long ways to find a Golden as nice as Sage.

Meanwhile, I went in to the vet today to get a picture of my heart.    I have sub-aortic stenocis, which they tell me means that I have a special heart.   They made me lie down on a raised bed, then while everyone petted me and made over me, they put some jelly stuff on my tummy and looked at my heart with this stick thing.    I was given lots of treats.   He increased my Atenolol dosage.   He said that I need to take it easy, I can't run and play too hard.   My humans chuckled, they decided long ago that I should enjoy life and run and play as much as I want.   Its my life and I want to enjoy as much as I can for as long as it lasts.     So far, so good!

In celebration of one more year of life, one year more than what they predicted, I am hosting a party on the 4th of July.   Its a "Get your Golden Wet" party.    The swimming pool will have a dozen Golden's and their owners, all swimming together.   Guests are asked to bring a dry golden to the party, and you can take a wet one home.

  1. Oh boy, Sage looks like fun.

    Remember Mogley, that even though you need to have fun, try not to play too hard. We would miss you if you had to leave early.

  2. What an offer! A dry Golden for a Wet one! Who can resist that?

    Take care, Mogley, you still have lots of work to do finding homes for other Goldies!


  3. Hi Mogley,

    Yeh! So happy for you that you passed your vet visit, even if you did get a meds increase...

    Have fun! That's my modo! I'm with you fella!

    Happy party and happy 4th!

    Y'all come by now,

    We are so glad to hear that Sage has a home coming to get him! Yay!


  5. Oh Mogley! The pawty sounds super fun! Glad you are going to just enjoy life...we all need to do that.
    Sage has such fantastic furs! Can picture him running around with the different toys! I like to do that too!
    Nice to see you again :)

    Sweet hugs,

  6. So happy for Sage, wow, someone coming all the way from Chicago, that's where we live near, Maybe we will have to come out and visit.
    You take your medication and you have fun because that is what life is all about.

  7. You are very good letting Sage use your toys, and "get your Golden wet" is a great idea for a party. I wish I could be there to celebrate with you, instead of at the bottom of the world where it is winter and my human makes strange noises when I run into the house wet and then shake water over the walls and furniture.


  8. So very, very happy for Mogley. This is such wonderful news. He has already exceeded his initial diagnosis. I agree that he needs to live and enjoy his life which is exactly what you provide for him. He is so precious and we always look forward to his blogs.
    Just wonderful news!!!

  9. We agree with your humans, Mogley. Live life to the fullest, and you seem to do just that. But we don't want to lose you either.

    Have fun at the wet party and send us some pictures.

    Sage seems to be a very happy dog, full of life. We just wonder how he is going to get to his new forever home all the way in Chicago.

  10. I'll bet your party is a hit! Wet Goldens tend to be Happy Goldens.

    Have a Happy 4th!
