doing GREAT! He's blended into our home like he's been here
forever. He's fine with our other
two Goldens, is eating well, sleeping beside our bed at night,
going potty outside, catching
tennis balls, and taking LOTS of naps!
blonde guy with a completely
white face, but oh that face is soooooo sweet. He's a charmer,
handsome, and loves rubbies.
He learned right away how to "nose butt" my hand
when I'm typing away on the
computer! He's smart, gentle, and has the dignity befitting
a gentleman of 16 years.
He has a face you just want to smother with kisses, and I have
been. What a LUCKY foster
mom I am!!
is deaf, but responds well to hand signals. We tap our
leg meaning to "come" and he comes immediately. He has cataracts, arthritis,
needs to go out often, but is in good health otherwise.
I know many of you are wondering WHY???? How could anyone give
up a Golden after almost 16 years? At this point the reasons "why" are unimportant.
What IS important is that GRRI was willing to take in this very senior golden. Travis'
had tried two other rescue groups and a no kill shelter, all of which declined to accept
because of his age.
What's just as important is that Travis has generated
much interest in seniors. I've been fostering for several
years, just recently with GRRI, and
have seen a real need for foster homes willing and able to take in a senior or
golden. I hope that everyone who has been touched by Travis will be encouraged
to foster and/or
adopt a senior.
It's not about quantity of life, it's
life they give to us.
