Congratulations to Us

We adopted Menia today.

We weren’t looking to add a fifth golden, but when her foster to adopt dad decided he was a one dog family, the rescue found a second adoptive family. They returned Menia after only three days.

I felt terrible.

Menia was rescued from a truck headed to the slaughterhouse in support of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China.

I promised the five goldens we brought to the USA I would find them wonderful furever families; and I had let Menia down.

When I told Joe, he said, “We can adopt her.”

This is easier said than done as we have four goldens already. Our oldest, Madeline, adopted from the rescue, doesn’t like most dogs.

We were very careful with introductions and during the following days we insured Madeline felt comfortable and Menia was safe.

Menia is used to living with other dogs and reads canine canine communications beautifully. Madeline growls and Menia walks away.

Keagan is teaching her all kinds of naughty things like climbing under the deck for the best mud; Ruby Tuesday likes her as she and Menia both like to retrieve; Riley sits by her on the sofa. She is fine with Al, our cat.  So we now have goldens ages 10, 8, 6, 4 and 2.

We’re signed up for a canine basic training class in June.

Since Menia has been playing on top of the pool cover, in puddles and “swimming” in her water bowl, we’re confident she’ll enjoy the pool when it opens.

We are happy to announce our new family addition….Menia Johnson.

Congrats Menia Johnson, you hit the jackpot! She looks like a show dog in the pic looking at her tail!
Nothing makes me smile like a Johnson gang group pic!ď
