There are great days, there are wonderful days, and there are Stupendous days. Today was even more than that! We drove over to the Rescue Central for a 10:00 date for Sage to meet the couple that drove in from Chicago, about 14 hours, just to meet him and several other Golden's. Bella and I rode along so we could supervise and coach Sage on how to respond. Once we arrived, Sage went for a walk with the couple. Butters was there and she was already impressing them with her good behaviour. After meeting Sage and Butters, they had a hard decision. Butters won the new home, and left to conquer the big city. The photo above is of Butter, settling in for her trip home. We are really happy for her and for the family that chose a wonderful lady. They have a small house and yard, Butters is a better fit for a smaller house. Sage was thought to be a little exuberant for a small place.
While we were there, the paw challenged one got busy with his camera. He volunteered to help take photos of new arrivals for the web site, and to help write biography's for our homeless Golden's. He spent several hours working with new arrivals, but they kept arriving. He ended up taking photos of 10 different orphans. Now the hard part comes, writing up their stories. For the blog and for the web site.
The weekend is just beginning. The next two days are the annual Wet Dog Contest. We have invited about 20 goldens to come by and see who can win the prize for the best wet dog. I expect to be a top contestant, I have been practicing for days.
