Last night we made the drive over to the office of the Official Golden Retriever Rescue Vet. We had to pick up 10 year old Beth (Elizabeth) or Lizzie. He was an intake from a local pound, they had picked her up as a stray. She came in as Handsome, they thought she was a boy. She was dirty, bedraggled and hungry. Her ribs were showing, her teeth were broken and she had several large tumors on her tummy, and she was not spayed. When we met her, she was still groggy from having her tumors removed and several broken teeth removed. This morning Beth is still not feeling well, so we won't post her photos till she has a chance to put on her make up. Beth may be the smallest grown up Golden we have ever fostered. She looks like a 5 month old puppy, a 5 month old puppy that is just getting over an operation.
While we were there we picked up Peanut (Pete) and Roxie. Pete has been in GRRR for a while, we had his photos up on the blog two weekends ago. Pete won't last long, he is a beautiful boy and very well mannered. We only had him for a few hours, then another foster mom picked him up to foster. He will have a ball playing with Riley and River, two big golden boys.
Roxie is a new lady that just came in. She is the voluntary surrender from a home that lost their husband. With three teenage boys and two goldens, they felt they had to cut back on the household burden. So Roxie came to stay with us till we can find her a new home. Roxie is a wonderful 4 year old lady, she is so well trained and well behaved. She will not last long once we have time to post her photos and do a write up on her.
We will be back with photos and more, later. So the dog house has Nala, Bella, Mogley, Roxie and Beth at the moment.
