A Lady Arrives at Golden Pines!

Its been a busy week for me and the dogs!  I don't even know where to start.  I think for this post, I'll start at the end of the week, and just hit the highlights.

Today at Golden Pines, from Lab Rescue, we welcomed Lady!  A stray that has come to us from southern Virginia, about 200 miles from us (321. kilometers).  She's estimated to be about 10 years old.  She's thin, with several bald patches, and a story to tell.

We're still getting to know Lady, and we haven't given her much of a chance to make friends with our group.  There's time for that this weekend, and to try and convince her that the cats are not toys.

**And since we're welcoming another Yellow Lab, below is an update that Lab Rescue sent me about the other Yellow Lab we had that got away....

"Sherlock is now Reggie, that's what Kim was calling him and I decided to keep it. Everything is going so well. Scruffy and Reggie got along right from the start and I think they will be buddies. Reggie has been checked by my Vet with a good report and he has already had a laser treatment and a spin on the water treadmill. I think he's going to fit in just fine. So, the check's in the mail as they say. Thanks for everything!!"

Todd who got his spring-haircut at the "fur-stealers" yesterday and I hope you have a good weekend! I look forward to catching up on your news!  Thanks for stopping by!!

  6. What good news, Kim, for both Reggie and the lovely Lady ! As the owners of two retired, breeding, female yellow Labs, that photo of Lady went straight to our hearts! She's a beauty - but then we're biased !
    My, but Todd does look a handsome chap - how long did he stay so smart?

  7. So glad people will drive so far to ensure a pup has a chance! Yay, for Reggie, sounds like he's definitely home.

  25. Hi Y'all!

    Dear Lady is so lucky to have landed with y'all!

    Thanks for stoppin' by. Y'all hurry on back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  26. Just found your lovely blog. Im sorry your brother passed last year. I love that you help out the dogs! I volunteer in the OR at my shelter with spays and nueter assists.

  27. Great to hear positives about Reggie . . .
    I hope Lady does well with your care . . .
    And Todd looks quite handsome!

  28. I'm so happy about Reggie, even though I know that you miss him. And Lady is one lucky Lab to have landed with you. Big smiles to everyone!

  29. Todd, you are so handsome with your new hair cut. Doesn't it feel so good? And you have a new sister to play with! Lady is beautiful! I have a feeling everyone will love Lady!
    Such wonderful news about Reggie,,, and just from reading the little letter,, it looks like he is getting lots of love and attention, and is making everyones hearts very happy!
    Welcome Lady!

  30. All such happy news! Reggie looks quite content and has made room for Lady to get the care she love she needs. It all works just as it's meant to.

  31. Many years ago our golden lab got on really well with our cat and even helped her with her kittens. So gentle. Later our golden retriever was also gentle with our cats so I am sure Lady will be once she becomes used to them being around.
