I did do a home visit for the rescue on Saturday morning. I packed up Annie, who is feeling better and who is always more than happy to go on a little road trip and meet someone new. The couple have no children (except for a 9 year old Golden) and live behind 2 security gates on a 116 acre estate with 5 fenced in acres just for their dogs. The house, about 8000 square feet, had a kitchen that made my heart skip a beat--State of the art appliances with custom glass front cabinets all came together so beautifully and perfectly. The rest of the home was comfortable and decorated with layers of natural color with earthy shades of green. Going up a sweeping stair case were gorgeous landscapes in muted tones. I can admit now that I was a little nervous at first because you never know who will be living behind the gates in such a grand home. However the couple were very, very nice (as was their Golden) and I felt more like I was visiting with friends. I hope that a rescued Golden finds their way to them!
This summer Todd has been spending a lot of his time outside. He seems so content and will stay out for as long as I'll allow him too.
At the end of the weekend we are all feeling pretty relaxed and rested and the dogs all seem to be doing well, and Josh is hardly limping. (YAY!) Those inner-batteries are recharged and I'm ready to face the world again. I hope you had a relaxing weekend too!
