Update on Lenai

It was a busy weekend.    On Sunday we had an appointment for a family that wanted to meet Lenai.    We took Lenai over to meet with them, early in the morning.   She did us proud, she showed off and loved up to the family, she even ran and fetched a little just to let them know that she had talents.   She was not just another pretty face and coat.    They were impressed.    There were two young boys to give her attention and play with her, two adults to spoil her rotten.   She put on her best show.   One other golden and a golden-doodle were competing with her for the one home available. 

It was for naught.   The family had not had breakfast yet and they decided to wait until after breakfast.  They left, but did not come back for her.   Obviously they had no taste in best friends.    Lenai was left at rescue because two more families had called and were coming in, Lenai fit their profile as well.   At the end of the day, Lenai was still at rescue, she had lost out on three potential homes.   She had been passed over for younger and more cuter dogs.    Experience, obedience and great looks will win in the end, just not today.   at 6 years old, she is no longer a spring chicken, so she has to make her choice of family carefully.  It is forever, you know. 

Lenai was left with Mary for the night, the last appointment was running late.    Lenai came back home this noon.   The family had called to see if she was still available, but they could not get free till the weekend.   Lenai was depressed, two days at rescue and she was still not adopted.   She just wanted to relax and gather her thoughts.  
Lenai has a habit that makes everyone love her.    When she is ready to lie down, she grabs a big mouthful of her bed, then lies down with her paws holding the bed down.   Then she goes to sleep in that position.   When she first grabbed the bed, everyone thought she was going to tear it up, instead she just dropped down, closed her eyes and went to sleep.   The tears in the bed are not her fault, they were there long before she arrived.   She takes good care of her bed and toys.  Well, all toys except for stuffies, she can unstuff a stuffie in seconds. 

We will put her write up on the web, then we will begin booking appointments for this coming weekend.   She won't last long once people learn what a wonderful lady she is.    We just have to help her get back to her normal cheerful, happy and loving self.

  7. Hi Y'all,

    So sad, so sad...depressing when you are torn from your foster home and don't know what's going to happen next. The right person is looking for her, they just don't know where to find her. Keep the faith y'all...the perfect person is coming!

    Y'all come by now,

  8. Oh, I'm so sorry that Lenai is feeling sad. I bet that she'll cheer up after a brief time back with your wonderful family. If those families passed her over, it was their loss. I hope that the *right* family comes along soon. What a sweetie.

  9. Hi there,
    I came across from Beth's blog (Beyond the garden gate). What a sweet story and what great work you do. If I was closer, I think I'd seriously consider giving that dear soul a forever home. I hope someone sees her sparkle soon. Well done on the amazing work you do.

  11. Hi Mogley! Thanks for stopping by. I am so glad to have given recognition to your fabulous blog. While I do not often comment on your blog, I read it faithfully! I am so proud of the PCO for all he has done for goldens. Love hearing about them, and glad you gave a loving home to all. I really enjoy the photos too, particularly when you dogs hit the swimming pool!
    Blessings, Beth
