I emailed the pet caretaker at the agency again yesterday and received a little more health update on the two Goldens.

The male, who they are now calling "Amos", got his vet checkup and all is good and he is now doing well after a small temporary setback of not eating and throwing up. He has now been playful and now acting happy. Amos is now thought to be in the 6-7 year old range. He had several patches of his hair shaved so the vet can look at the sores he had sores from the ticks. He also has a little wetness around his eyes, called entropian, which apparently is common in Goldens. He is also heartworm negative. He seems to be doing very well now.

The female, is still un-named but may possibly get the name of "Andie" is still at the kennel and is doing well also. She is scheduled for her vet checkup later this week and will know more about her health after her visit.

The caretaker has been very good at providing me with info on these two lovely companions....and even though I haven't been "officially selected" as the adopting family as of yet, I am planning the 2 1/2 hr drive for a visit possibly at the end of the week depending on our upcoming predicted weather conditions. We'll know more about their possible availability release date after both dogs have finished their vet visits. I'll keep everyone posted on any new events with "Amos" and "Andie"...also, I like the both names.

Hard to imagine where their owners are, and at the same time excited for you and the two boys.

The pet caretaker sent me a couple of pics of the boy "Amos" that was taken on Christmas Eve hanging out at their office with the staff. I will be getting a health update on the girl "Andie" as I believe she has her appointment with the vet today. It's so hard not to be too overly excited about seeing both of them at the end of this week.

Andie and Amos are so beautiful, love the new pics of Amos. Hope Andie checks out good.

Keeping my fingers crossed the weather holds up for you so you can meet them.

Take your camera and travel safely.
