I had a conversation with someone from the rescue about Cissy. It's easy enough to see that she's not a 'full bred Golden Retriever' but a mix of something that I can't even begin to guess. But I was asked my thoughts about maybe transferring Cissy to an "all breed rescue" when she feels better. This would be because people coming to a breed specific rescue almost always are looking to adopt that particular breed and not a mixed breed. Placing Cissy into a new forever home via the Golden Retriever Rescue could be a challenge and added to that is her age and her health. It was a good, frank discussion and one that had to take place. In the end we agreed that she is "golden enough" and will not be transferred to another rescue. She is now an "honorary Golden Retriever."
I wonder what Todd would think about being an "honorary Golden Retriever?"
