A Forever Home for the Chub Brothers


~Bubba~
 The call came earlier today from the rescue.  The Chub Brothers, Bubba and Toby (pictured below) will be staying at Golden Pines!! 

Carl and I will 'officially' adopt Toby and the rescue will continue to 'officially' own Bubba, paying (only) for his vet care.  There are a few caveats with this arrangement; however I'm optimistic that it's one that has only Bubba's best interest in mind and no ones personal agenda.  I'm relieved and very thankful.  I'm also thankful for all of you who sent positive thoughts while I waited and worried.

  40. I hope you and your family and all doggies are blessed with all the best, because you are truly a giving couple to provide all those sweet dogs a home. Your blog brings tears to my eyes, and as I am "dogless" now, I enjoy seeing the happiness you are bringing to your rescue dogs. I can see it is a huge responsibility daily, on top of your real job. PS, I really chuckled over the "fly-swater" exchange!! BE WELL!!
