Letters to GRRI
Hi Eileen (GRRI volunteer),
I was just looking at the web page from
GRRI…we are so sorry to hear about Bronwyn. I have attached
a video of Ariel with the girls (Sandy and Samantha). They
are so great with her and she just loves to climb all over
them. It is endless entertainment for all of us. Sandy and
Ariel have a special relationship, especially when Ariel is
eating her meals. Sandy sits right next to Ariel. They have
an agreement, one piece of food for her, and then she hands
over one piece of food for Sandy. After the meal is over,
Ariel takes all of the left over food from her bib and gives
it to Sandy. The best part is, we never have to clean up the
floor or high chair because Sandy takes care of that too!
Laurissa and Seth Berkman
Dear Laurissa and Seth, Ariel is
beautiful! – and how lucky for Sandy that she has such a
generous friend. There still isn’t a vacuum cleaner on the
market that can do a better job of cleaning up after a meal
than a Golden. Thanks so much for writing.
Just a couple
of pictures (I have many!) of Lucy – I’m sure you’ve seen
them on her site at Dogster. She has the most incredible
personality – I have never seen any one or any dog who loves
life as much as Lucy. She makes these contented little
grunts when you cuddle her face in your hands and scratch
her ears. Her tail even wags in her sleep. She and Raleigh
fast became siblings – she loves to tease him – and he
secretly loves it. We are so glad to have her in our family
– she’s a true joy and treasure. I wish you luck in placing
all of the “patiently waiting for forever homes” Goldens.
Pam and John
and John, Great to hear that Lucy is so happy and loved.
She can’t possibly understand how lucky she is that you
found her, but wagging her tail in her sleep sure suggests
that she knows how good she has it. Please, keep sending
photos, and give her ears a good scratch for us.
Thank you so
much for taking Sasha!! Though I miss her I know she is
somewhere better. I know she will have a better quality of
life with you. My home just wasn’t suitable for her anymore
and it broke my heart. Thank you again. If ever you need
help with her please don’t hesitate to ask. I do love her
and miss her.
Sasha is indeed a wonderful dog. We know that it often is
very difficult to turn a dog over to us for placement, but
as you point out, sometimes circumstances are such that it
is the best thing for the dog. We thank you for your
generosity of spirit in doing what is best for Sasha despite
the pain of being separated from her, and know that your
love for her will always be remembered.
Hi! Just a
little note to let you all know that Cherokee is doing just
fine. I got her teeth all fixed and she is up to 74 pounds.
She rides in my truck every day and loves to swim. There is
no way to thank you enough for saving Cherokee. She is truly
my best friend and by my side 24/7.
Paul, and Nina Esser
and Paul, Glad to hear that Cherokee is doing so well.
Although we appreciate your thanks, Cherokee wouldn’t be
enjoying the life she deserves without you! Your care,
companionship, and love have made all the difference for
her. Please keep us posted on how she’s doing, and thanks
the enclosed donation in loving memory of Mr. William
Brazzel on behalf of the Frank J. Dugan Elementary School
PTA in Marlboro, NJ. Your organization was chosen because it
was meaningful to Mr. Brazzel and his family.
Neustater, Thank you for your generous donation. We’re
pleased that memories of Bill Brazzel will live on through
your financial support and the dedication of volunteers like
Bill’s daughter Ann Price. Our work allows countless dogs
and families to share lives of joy, and we hope Mr. Brazzel
would be pleased to know that his friends and family
contribute to that effort.
Carmen (original name: Willow) in November of 1999. She is
simply one of the nicest dogs we have ever had. I’ve
enclosed a picture of my son, Ethan, with Carmen at your
rescue picnic last fall.
We just wanted
to thank you for all the good work you do, and please accept
the attached donation check with our gratitude.
We can’t tell who looks happier, Ethan or Carmen! Thank you
for your donation and especially for giving Carmen such a
wonderful home. We hope we’ll see you all again at our
reunion picnic on September 30!
Hi Pam! (GRRI
awesome. We are all loving her so much, especially Charlie.
She has really settled in and calmed down into a responsive,
loving and fun pup. She is so smart too. Her favorite treats
are Omaha Steaks Doggie Beef Jerky (Charlie buys it for her)
and Frosty Paws Doggie Ice Cream. Of course peanut butter in
a Kong ball still rates way up there.
Yes, we got
the Woofstock invite and at least the girls and I will be
some pics of Reese. The one of Reese surrounded by white is
my wallpaper. Hope you enjoy them!
Beth Reese and
Omaha Steaks and Ice Cream?? There are several volunteers
who want to know if you’d be interested in adopting them!
Sounds like Reese is living a great life, and we appreciate
your letting us know ho well she’s doing. Please, do stay in
touch, and keep sending those pictures!
Last week when
I was lying around playing hound dog my mommy got a call
from my aunt Gina inviting me to her house to go swimming. I
had so much fun. Talk to you all later.
Dear Shylow, Looking good!! We all
feel cooler just looking at your picture. Please give your
family a couple of good licks for us to thank them for
giving you such a great home. Write again soon!
