I am still trying to decide about what direction to take with Ree. I've spoken with a coordinator at Lab Rescue and of course the rescue will accept her, I just need to sign my ownership of her over to them. I'm very grateful to have that option for Ree. But I'm finding that I'm not quite ready. A couple of people have networked her within their circle of friends, and there has been some interest. But so far, nothing has really come from it.
Todd enjoying his time outside on these hot sunny days lets me do the worrying about everything - And he remained unfazed as a week ago today, we welcomed a new arrival, named Jake.
Jake originally belonged to someone who had gotten divorced, and was serving in the military. The Mom and Dad took Jake, but they are and now retired, and are busy babysitting their grandchildren and are hardly ever home. They felt that Jake was lonely and they wanted him to be in a home where he would get a lot of attention.
Jake at 11 or 12 years old, already has the claim to fame of being the biggest Golden we have ever fostered. I don't know what he weighs, but I have no doubt he tips the scales at over 100 pounds. He is a big boy.
At first Jake was a bit overwhelmed by everything and for a day or so he stayed turned away from us. I was so sad for him, and of course I tried to reassure him. But then he realized that he was going to be okay, and the tail wags and smiling started.
He's a nice boy that is getting along with everyone. He really does like attention, and is getting into the routine of his new life. Welcome to Jake. We look forward to getting to know him, and being part of his story.
