Four for Four

Riley is happy to be home from the vet’s office after having a lump aspirated. (Vet inserts a needle into the lump and looks at it under a microscope.) SEBACEOUS CYST that had burst under his skin. BENIGN.

We’ve been VERY lucky with lumps and bumps with our pups recently.

Keagan had a Histiocytoma. BENIGN.

Madeline has a gnarly looking wart. BENIGN.

Ruby Tuesday had a sebaceous cyst aspirated a couple of weeks ago. BENIGN.

Riley’s lump appeared about a month ago after he had just been to the vet for his annual check up. I was going to wait and keep an eye on it, but considering goldens and considering three of my five had lucked out so far, I was concerned.

But, whew! $150 well spent!

I am sad to report that our sweet Romeo crossed rainbow bridge tonight, taking a piece of our hearts with him. I already miss petting his soft fur and having him snuggle into my arms.

This morning we said goodbye to our beloved Sydney. The moment this goofy golden girl ran into our home she stole our heart. We will miss her chasing her tail, throwing her toys and digging in our backyard. Thank you GRRSM for bringing this girl all the way from Turkey so she could adopt us

Here’s a First Night Adoption Report We Like to See – Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde settled in wonderfully last night! No issues at all with anything.

I don’t know if you saw, but after you walked away, they really wanted to go after you… clearly they love you two very much. :). Clyde settled down quickly in the car, but poor Bonnie panted and paced the entire 2 1/2 hour drive.

When we arrived home, we took them on a walk in their new yard and they really enjoyed it. Upon entering the house, one of our cats “Casey” was there to greet us. Bonnie, Clyde and Casey all sniffed each other and hung around together while they all got petted. Introductions with the other 3 cats went just as well and Bonnie and Clyde have been off-leash in the house with free reign to most of the main level since 🙂

Feeding dinner went fine. They sure do LOVE eating! They were well-mannered while Fred and I ate our dinner. They just sat next to us and didn’t beg at all!

Before bedtime, we went out for another walk in our back yard. Here’s some photos:

After our evening stroll, we set up their dog beds in our bedroom. Bonnie loves her bed!:

Clyde was a bit reluctant to get on the bed at first, but was happy laying on the carpet getting love from Fred:

They slept great in our bedroom with us and the four cats. When I woke up, they were both cuddled up on their dogs beds together. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get my phone fast enough to get a picture of that sweet vision.

Things have continued to go great this morning. No accidents; no problems with the cats; no other issues – just a lot of tail wagging :).

Fred and I are thrilled with how well things are going and absolutely adore these two! And they seem very happy as well!
We can’t get over how much Bonnie reminds us of our beloved golden “Charlotte” who passed away in October 2011. Not so much in her looks, but rather in her sweet personality and mannerisms. And Clyde is a big, sweet teddy bear. At one point during our evening walk, Clyde stood on his hind legs, put his paws on Fred’s shoulders and just gazed lovingly at him. 🙂

We couldn’t be happier with our new additions. They fit in quickly and perfectly. Thank you so much for bringing them into our lives ❤.

Congratulations to Bonnie and Clyde

Congratulations to Bonnie and Clyde who were adopted by Anne-Marie and Fred S.today. They are returning to their “farm” roots and will have lots of wide open spaces to play in on their family’s ten acre yard of which a portion is fenced. They will also have cat friends once again.

Thank you to Mariel and Adam Connell for opening your home to not one, but TWO goldens in need.

Bonnie and Clyde are like twins who finish each other’s sentences, so it was important to keep them together in their temporary home and in their furever home. We thank Anne-Marie for being willing to adopt two.

We will post new photos of them in their new home soon.
