Climb back on the horse! Or dog, as the case may be. Lenai

After losing Boo Boo, The Paw Challenged Ones (TPCO) were going to take a vacation from the stream of fosters that had been coming through the house and just have Bella and I.   But then new arrivals at Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) made them rethink their plans.    Maybe the best thing they could do in memory of Boo Boo and Nala would be to help another dog in rescue.
They had gotten word that another worthy rescue lady had been named Nala in honour of Nala who had recently passed away. Nala had already found a foster home, and has already been adopt. Great news. Now Lenai was in need of a home. Lenai arrived home last night, she was ready to find a place to settle in for a short time while she waits for her new forever home to open up. Lenai is the victim of the economy, as are so many dogs that arrive in rescue these days. Downsizing a home is human speak for "lets send the dog to rescue". Lenai was in a home with children, cats and a loving family. Then came the downsizing. Now she is moving around from place to place, trying to figure out what is happening to the world and people she loved.      Below, Lenai demonstrates the finer points of begging. 
Join us in welcoming Lenai to The Dog House. She will be staying here while we are looking for her new Forever Home. We think she will not be with us for long, she is very good looking and very well behaved. She is getting along very well with the other dogs over at rescue and she has settled in well with Bella and I. She was curious about the black cat when Mini ran across the floor, but once they were introduced, they get along just fine. She has ignored Buddy, the big white cat, Buddy ignores Lenai and Lenai ignored him in return. She loves attention and she would love to find a new home with lots of activity and lots of hands. The hand to dog ratio is going to be important to her, she wants lots of hands, lots of attention.     She is a little overweight, but an active home with lots of walks and runs will soon take care of her figure. 

Stay tuned for more news as we go back to rescuing again.    Lets see, is she number 78 or number 77?   Either way, she is a wonderful lady to share our home with for a few days.

  1. Hi Y'all,

    My Human and I read Boo Boo's obituary this morning. Then the events of the day interrupted before I had a chance to leave my sympathies.

    When I came back this evening I was thrilled that Lenai has stepped in to help assuage y'alls sorrow. Lenai sure lucked out getting y'all to help her figure out this new life of hers.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  2. Lenai is beautiful. It is hard to take breaks, we did and Mom felt guilty while not fostering. But they're back at it again.. Hard to refuse a dog needing you. Bless you for taking in Lenai.

  3. Hello Lenai! I'm sorry you got downsized, but I'll bet your new forever home will be even better!!

  4. Hello!! To start, I am so, so sorry to read the news about Boo-Boo...I know how hard it is to lose a pup that you have hopes and dreams for, only to find out, it is not meant to be...I hope you found comfort in knowing that he'll be waiting for you one day to thank-you for opening your home to him and all that you did in his behalf.

    I also know how hard it is to open your home to another so soon. I felt the same way about our current foster boy Jake, but you're like me, you know it's not about us, it's about those special Goldens like Jake ad Lenai that need a place to go...

  5. Welcome Lenai, you have found a wonderful foster home. Mogley & Bella will help you find your forever home very soon.
