I've been a member since 2009. Woody had just rescued me and I was curious to find out what experienced golden owners thought he might be mixed with. I also wanted to share my loss of Sammie my first Golden. I was so impressed with the warm welcome I received I decided to hang around.

Really good one, so...

What brought you to this Forum: I joined the forum in June 2012 (one month after getting Pixie). And I was looking for general informations about the breed, nothing in particular. I was overwelmed with the amount of information in here and how people were willing to share their personal experiences knowing that somebody would be listening on the other side.

#1 Item on your bucket list -
I'd like to find my mother, Ida Dean Richardson Anderson (Richardson, maiden, Anderson, married name). Over 20 years of searching and a million miles of travel I finally found everyone. No one ever heard from her again, but they were extremely delighted and moved to see us kids again and know what became of us. I suspect foul play of one kind or another (including a crooked probate judge). I'm only posting this because .. well, you just never know where a lead might come from. My sister, Beverly (left below) passed away from cancer not so long ago.



Ida circa 1958 (holding me bottom right):

Danny, your post makes me want to send you a Cyber Hug. I can't imagine the road you have traveled in your search for your Mom and you can feel your love for her.

Really believe: Though your Mom wasn't a part of your life, I believe she knows and is proud of you and of your search for information of her. Mom's have a way of knowing things...they just do and the love of a Mom is like no other....she knows and she is proud.
