Honey crosses Rainbow Bridge

Today our Honey crossed over Rainbow Bridge. After several weeks of really slowing down, this week Honey told us she was ready to cross when she stopped eating. Her spirit and love for life just was not there anymore. She was one of GRRSM’s earliest rescues, being the eighth dog taken in during that first year of 2007. Honey has always been our ‘rock’. She was the protector, guardian, and BFF to Miss Morgan, always bringing her home from their escapes and road trips. For Foster, she was the pack leader and constant big sister. Honey was a mentor to many foster dogs, teaching them the ropes and keeping them in line. Poor Honey also was the ‘model’ for many outfits and costumes when Barb needed a picture for the blog or e-mails. She will always remain our Honey-Doo.

No 2018 Rescue Calendar


Several of you have asked when the rescue’s 2018 calendar will be available. I’m sad to say we will not be publishing a calendar this year.

As most of you know, Angie who did the calendar for the last two years was in a bad car accident and she is still recovering from her injuries. The volunteer who had done the calendar previously said she enjoyed putting together the calendar and would do the calendar.

Due dates came and went. Our volunteer recently informed us she would not be doing the calendar- too late for us to find another volunteer, get it printed and mailed.

I will miss my Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Maryland calendar as I know many of you will.

As we have been highlighting volunteers this month this demonstrates what happens without them…

You will see many of the submitted photos on this web site in 2018.

Thankful For Our Volunteers: Glenda and Tom Spragg


The rescue is so fortunate to have some wonderful long time volunteers. Tom and Glenda Spragg are a long time foster family for the rescue. After adopting Mr. Moose their first foster dog was Cookie in 2009. This year they fostered Sydney, Lucky and Khloe. They even went to pick up Khloe on Tom’s birthday. According to our Foster Coordinator, Ginny, Hinders, “Lucky was a HW+ foster which takes extra love and care – the Spraggs never hesitate to help a pup in need.”

They are such a caring family. Several years ago they fostered a very timid girl, Fluffy, whose new family could not leave her with just any pet sitter, so the Spraggs did vacation coverage for her almost every year. They were scheduled to have her over the holidays, but Fluffy recently crossed Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly.

Glenda is a great walker whose guest dogs along with her own goldens get nice long walks which is often a first for a foster pup.

On behalf of all the pups you’ve fostered over the years, thank you so much Glenda and Tom.
