A Home for Roxie and update on Beth

Above, from the left, Roxie, Beth and Nala in the car at Rescue Central, waiting for the meetings with possible new forever homes for Roxie.

The Paw Challenged One (PCO) has been working on something he calls work, which apparently demands that he hog the computer.    But we have a few items to report that are important.

On Sunday the PCO loaded up Nala, Roxie and Beth for a trip over to Rescue Central.   Several people had asked to meet with Roxie, and the PCO wanted to show how great Nala and Beth were doing.     Nala had not been out for a trip since her spring visit to the vet, she was pretty sick and  they were even talking about how long she had to go before the Rainbow Bridge.    Now Nala is making her Christmas wish list and planning next summers picnics.   Beth went along to show how well she is doing and how strong she is now that she is getting three meals a day, and lots of attention.   She wanted to show off a little.    Below, Beth shows "Tails Up" as she heads off to help Bella tree a squirrel.

Roxie had her first meeting with a couple that decided Roxie was a little too much energy for them.   They lived a quiet life, without jogging or running, and Roxie was a high energy lady.    They will meet some more laid back Goldens and find someone to give a great home to.   The second meeting was a great match for Roxie.   They had several teen age children, a family that jogs and hikes in the mountains.  They promised that Roxie would go to bed tired on a regular basis.  They have a dog door, so she can run in the yard whenever she wants.   They even have a swimming pool.  There were 8 hands and only two dogs, that is an 8 to 2 ratio, she should get a lot of attention.     Roxie accepted the offer of a new Forever Home, and she says we should end her story with "And they lived happily ever after."
Below, you know Beth is spoiled when she gets dinner in bed.  

Meanwhile, we have a gratuitus puppy photo.    Puppy is the name of a young lady that was there to go to her new forever home.   She is off to a great life, and she sure was happy to meet everyone and to be the center of attention as she started her journey.

  1. Mogley,
    Roxie will no doubt be one happy Golden with her new forever home. We are so happy to see the progress that Beth has made in the short time she has been in your care.
    You tell Nala to continue to make those lists and plans, as we know she will be enjoying life for a long time.

  2. Wow,Wow,Wow!!! Such wonderful news!!! Beth looks wonderful. She seems so much more fit and happy. Not so skinny, those three meals are doing the trick. I noticed she is eating out of her own dish, without being hand fed. She obviously feels more secure. Excellent job Mogley and Bella!!! And sweet little Nala. Amazing what lots of tlc has done for her. She looks like a different dog, so bright eyed and happy. We all needed some good news. Thanks for sharing. Also, very happy for Roxie.

  3. You did it again. Roxie is getting a marvelous new forever home, Beth looks happy with her fur starting to shine and Nala is precious as ever. Mogley, you and Bella did it again, of course with the help of the paw challenged ones.

    Keep it up! We are always looking forward to your blog.

  4. I'm so happy for Roxie! Nala looks so good, and her face looks so happy! Beth is starting to come out of her shell, isn't she? You're doing a great job, Mogley!

  5. Hi Y'all!

    So happy for y'all, especially Roxie! I'm sure Beth will soon be following in her paw steps!

    Y'all come by now,

  6. I'm coming back after a little break and am starting with your blog--What a way to start with such good news and smiling faces!

  7. I went back and looked at the first picture of Beth when she came to live with you and am completely amazed. Night and day. In a relatively short amount of time, she has changed for the better by leaps and bounds. Those ribs are now covered by some good nutrition. She looks so good. Thank you.
    I didn't realize how small she really is until I saw her next to Roxie!!!

  8. Great news all around and congratulations on selecting the perfect forever home
