He's A Happy Guy!
Whew, my family
finally has been away from the computer for a while, so I can finally
write to you. My
name is Moses and I was adopted on November 30th. At
first I wasn't sure what
was going on and who these nice people were.
Well now I get it.
They are here to make me happy, and I am here to make them happy.
I did confuse them
once, though. As I was playing in my fenced in yard, I decided to eat a bird, after all
I am a bird dog! Well, I got really sick. I even chewed up some carpeting to make
myself, well, you know. Finally I did, and there was the bird skeleton. Off to the
vet, who said I would be fine.
I'm sorry I scared
those nice people I live with. I hope I learned my lesson.
We just had some
play time and now I'm going to go sleep on my very own
couch. Ahhh the luxeries of living
here. I will write again.
Thanks for placing
me with such a wonderful family.
Love, your Golden
pal, Moses Avella
Having Fun & Doing Great
We just wanted to send you a photo
of Abby with her buddy Kramer. We adopted Abby from you this past December and she has
quickly become a true member of our family.
and Kramer, our 7 year old Golden, get along great and
love to play together. Abby is
such a sweet dog, we just can't believe someone gave her
up. But then Kramer is also adopted (from
a pound via a friend who was fostering him) and he, too, is
a great dog. We love them
both and can't imagine life without them. Thank you so
much for what you do.
He's a Special Friend
It has been over seven months since
we adopted Mac and we couldn't
be happier. Mac is a wonderful dog, affectionate, playful and a constant joy and presence
our lives. Fortunately he is a fine traveller as we "commute" between NJ
and NH at
least twice a month. He loves people and everyone who visits receives a Mac greeting!
a great summer and fall frolicking in the NH woods and swimming in the lake (if it
frozen he'd be in it right now!!)
Goldens are very special. We continue
to miss Chandler, our
first Golden, but Mac makes it a little easier. We are very grateful to GRRI for all
good work with these wonderful animals and we continue to recommend GRRI to those searching
for a special friend.
Pat and Scott Nelson
and Love has Made ALL the Difference!
is Maxamillion of the Mountain and I was adopted on
December 23, 2000.
I haven't written you all to let you know how I'm doing but I have been VERY busy! You see,
my new owners have been so happy to have me that we've been doing things all the time.
weekends we go to this big lake area near my new home and play.
This lake area is huge! So
big that we play for hours.
My new master has been diligently
training me since we met. The
reason my previous owners didn't want me was because it seems
I was an Alpha male, and I wouldn't
listen to anyone and I'd run off all the time. I guess they
were right because I was even hit by
a car once.
All that has changed now. You see
I'm not the man of the house anymore.
My master is one tuff guy. He doesn't let me get away with
anything. He's been training me
for about six weeks now.
My old family probably wouldn't
even recognize me now. I can sit on
command, lay down, stay, heel, and come when called. I actually
like the discipline. It's made
me feel very proud of myself. I'm even learning to retrieve
like my ancestors! I guess you
could say life is pretty good.
I went to
the vet last week. Dr. Giordano
said everything's good. My new owner even asked Dr. G to check
out a few things like my pads.
He's pretty smart. Good thing because I couldn't tell the Dr.
myself. Dr. G put me on heartworm
preventative. No complaints here. I even attached a photo of
myself lounging around the house.
Are ya jealous?!
Now a Few Words from His People
a very big, head strong, alpha male. He now is a very big, well behaved, beautiful golden.
His previous owners surely did not know what they had. Max is a wonderful dog. He is so well
behaved, and so receptive to love and training. We can't believe how good he is. We truly feel
very lucky to have him and we thank GRRI very much.
