Welcome Sage, a beautiful gentleman.

Sage is the newest member of our pack.    Five year old Sage came to us as a foster on Tuesday afternoon.   He was looking for a new home, and we had an opening for one more foster.    Jude was happily adopted on Sunday night, and we had a vacancy at the dog house.   Sage will not last long, he will be "Gone in 60 Seconds", just like the movie.     Sage was surrendered to Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) when his family found that their frequent out of state trips were forcing Sage to spend more and more time in a boarding kennel.   Sage has an old ACL injury that makes him slow down from time to time and he will limp slightly when he has run too much.  He runs well, just not too far at one time.    

Sage is so beautiful, the photos don't do him justice.   He is a darker red than it looks in the photos.   He carries himself like royalty.   He has been through obedience training, and he stayed awake during class.    He obeys his commands like a circus performer.    Tell him to "down" and "stay" and he is on the ground looking up at you, waiting for "release".      He is well socialised, he gets along with everyone.   He even tolerates the cats, he has received the special award that Mini Cat gives to especially well behaved Golden's.     He is a wonderful addition to our home   

WE heard rumors that when someone comes to adopt him, he may have already "run away", but they already tried that story one time to many and it did not work.   There is already one couple that is coming in from Chicago to adopt a Golden from GRRR, they are serial adopters, and they want to repeat the magic that their last two dogs brought with them.  Sage is on the short list that they will meet with when they are in town.   Stay tuned, for more meetings with special potential adopter's.    Take a look at all of the photos of Sage, then tell us he will still be here next Monday!

We are falling behind on our blogging posts.   Last weekend on Saturday we had an all day swim party with our very wet cousins, and we have still not posted about that.    We were too busy saying goodbye to Jude, and exploring the new fountain.    Sage is more important, don't you think?   Someone asked how we live with dog doors and a constant stream of wet dogs.    We fail to understand the problem, we may track in water, but it is clean water.   Some hot days, we are locked out till we dry off, but many days we jump in the water and then run in the house before the humans can close the door.

  1. Sage will be there Monday only if he is skilled at hiding under the bed! What a beautiful dog, and I wish a most perfect home for him.

    Blessings on your family for the good work that you do helping these pups find the best life.

    Jo and Stella

  2. What a beautiful Sage! Great post about Sage! We were just looking at GRR of the Rockies, as well as our local ones... One of these days, we will have the space to find me a buddy! You foster the most wonderful furpals, I must say!

    Sweet hugs,
    Sierra Rose

  4. Just like Jude, Sage will find his new home quickly. He has such a beautiful coat. so glad his previous family and gave him the chance to have the type of life he deserves.
    Is Nala still doing ok. She has had such a tough time of it. I know she appreciates all of the loving care Mogley and Bella have given her!!!!

  5. Woo Goldens are something else!


  6. An other new play mate, Mogley. It's not just all the fosters that come through your forever home that are lucky, but also you. You, Bella and Nala get to meet them all.

    BTW, how is Nala?

    Lady(senior), Sandy Paws and Oliver.

  7. Hi Y'all,

    What a shame Sage first home didn't work out to his satisfaction.

    Be sure he holds out for exactly what he wants and where he wants!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
