Missy Update

I received an email from Missy's mom and she is doing great at her new home. She is a little frightened of thunder so she finds her safe spot on the back of the couch.

This will be the last entry in Missy's blog. It has been a great 3 months having her in our family. She has provided us with lots of love and laughs. She is now with her forever family in the northeast. She holds a very special place in my heart. I want to thank everyone that had a hand in her rescue. I want to thank my sister, Sherry for the Kuranda Bed project. If it was not for this project, I would never have met Missy. Thanks so much to our board member, Gary who graciously provided the financial cost for her heartworm treatment. I also want to thank MAGRR for allowing her to be adopted through the golden rescue even though she was a lab. Thanks to Phyl and Carole for working to make sure that she went to a great home. Thanks to Baily's mom, Anna in the northeast for completing the home visit. I don't want to leave out Karma, Cedar and Robbie. Thanks for helping us foster Missy. As you can see, it takes a lot of people to make these adoptions work. Thanks to all our MAGRR volunteers for your dedicated time and love you give to our goldens. Last, but not least, thank you Missy for loving us. Missy has left her paw prints on our hearts. Gerry

Anyone want a treat?

Missy, Bosco, Robbie and Cedar sit patiently for a treat. Karma was too busy hopping around and she missed the picture. She did get a treat though.

Retrievers are a big help.

We had a thunderstorm last week and lost several trees. The goldens and the labs were a big help in cleaning up the tree limbs. They were all facinated by the big limbs. Since Missy's tranport was delayed, she got to help with the work. They really thought they helped just by being there. I did not tell them anything different. People just don't know what they are missing when they don't have dogs around.

Missy is Miss Personality

We have really enjoyed our time with Missy. She has so much personality. We can always count on getting a cute picture of this sweet girl. We will truly miss having her around. On Thursday, I went for a walk (in the 100 degrees) and every song on my ipod had lyrics that reminded me of Missy. There is just one little thing that makes this fostering business hard. You guessed it, having to say goodbye. Why I have songs such as "I Will Remember You", "You Found Me", "These are the Times of My Life", and "Come Back to Me" on my ipod is beyond me. I sure can pick the sad songs. In fact, most of these songs remind me of all my fosters. Even though I will never see them again, I have great memories of them all. This one may tug at my heart strings just a little harder. We love you Missy.

Missy is a busy girl!

I have several new pictures to post. First of all, Missy had a field trip to my sister's house. They are on vacation and we are taking care of their two Brittanys. She met Gracie and Gidget and loved running around the backyard. She took a look at the pool, but she was not interested. She loves to go for a ride in the car and she is a great car rider. When we got home, she finally rested on the Kuranda bed. This morning, we took another ride to my sister's house and then to the vet for Missy to get her health certificate. She was such a good girl (a little nosey), but she was so well behaved. She waited patiently while I was getting her paper work. We then stopped off at Lynn's house and Missy met the cat. She was not really interested. I think she will do fine with cats.

I received a message from Jersey today. I am so glad that he found his forever home. His mom said that he misses me, but that he loves his new home. My foster mom found these shelter pictures of me and Jersey. Thanks to MAGRR, we are both safe and happy.
