Letters to GRRI
Hi! Sorry it took so long
to get back to you. The past 2 weeks have been
nuts. Not because of Rusty. My husband
has been away in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.
First - We have changed Rusty's
name to Lucky (son of a gun) or more affectionately known
as Lucky-San. He wasn't responding at all to Rusty but
he is responding to Lucky or Lucky-San. He is a great
dog! Very affectionate and playful. His copper colored
coat is breath taking - just the color alot of us pay
money to get.
He and Buddy, my 2 year old
Golden, love to play together. My older Golden just
watches. She is my shadow, where ever I go she goes.
Lucky's checkup at the Vet went
well. We gave him a Lyme vaccine, and a heartworm test. So far, so good. He fits right in with the whole family.
My sister met him yesterday and is in love with him. He
still needs to learn some manners but he is getting
better. Poor thing, must have been starved. According to
the Vet's scale last week he weighed 65 pounds. She felt
he was in excellent condition. He is missing teeth on
the left side of his mouth-upper and lower. He also has
a scar on the left side of his muzzle.
The vet couldn't figure out if he had
been hurt or he just never grew those teeth. The gums
are smooth and well healed if there was an injury.
It certainly doesn't effect his eating! He likes
the crates but mostly sleeps on the bed with me and
Misty or on the bedroom floor. He absolutely loves
my bathroom and the shower stall. He likes to
chill out there!!!
I'll send pictures soon. Thank you all
for allowing us to adopt our beautiful, sweet,
Lucky-San. It's the best thing I've ever done.
Keep in touch,
Sylvia, Phil, Josh, Misty, Buddy & Lucky Mogerman
P.S. Thanks for all the med. records and the tag.
Phil, Josh, Misty & Buddy -- Thanks for bringing
Lucky-San into your family. And what a GREAT name!
My wife Janet forwarded me a link to your latest
newsletter. I love reading the success stories and
looking at the photos of all those loving dogs.
This September will mark one year since we adopted Angel
from GRRI. Every time I look at her my heart is full. I
recently made this photographic portrait of her
(attached). Isn't she beautiful?
Thank you again for Angel and good
luck and God bless with all your
Steve Weiss & Janet Loprano
Dear Steve & Janet -- Angel's photo
Bailey is doing great, she is a
wonderful , loving, squirrel chasing mush!
She is getting along well with her
brother (Dakota, an eight year old
golden). The two of them are gracious enough to
let me stay in their house (I know where the food is
kept). Bailey has developed an interesting habit she
loves to watch tv especially animal planet and baseball
Dear Ralph -- thanks for the happy
