We lost our Golden early in July. As to be expected, our family was heartbroken. I contacted the Golden Rescue Foundation where we had adopted him to let them know the news. They asked if we might be interested in another and I declined, saying it was too soon. Last week the foundation called again and told me about one they had got in that looked like he might be perfect for us. I asked about his “baggage” as dogs at the foundation usually have some. Long story short, we have a new member of the family. This guy is three years old, FAT, and needs some manners. He’s had a tough time in more than a few ways but is definitely a “people dog.” Bottom line, here he is and yes, I have my work cut out for me.
