to mmo3gn:
Amos and Andie were picked up together on a woman's farm where many other dogs are apparently dumped because of the remote area location. No collars or tags on either one and I was told that the microchip registration info on Andie was never sent in by the owner. You can tell these two are definitely joined at the hip as they follow each other around everywhere are not out of each others sight. I think it would have been traumatic on them if they were ever separated.

to Zuca's Mom;
Thank you so much for posting these two wonderful dogs. They also touched our hearts and they are definitely bringing new joy into our life.

I love these stories! Welcome home Amos and Andie!

(I hope you will have your vet check Amos eyes, entropian is very painful and usually needs an eye lid tuck to correct it so the lashes stop rubbing the eyes.)

Yes, I read a little bit about entropian after I found out about it and I plan to make a follow up visit with our vet to see if this needs to be corrected on him. He doesn't appear to be having any problems since we got him but we'll get it checked out further anyway just to be safe.

They've been with us 2 nites now and they have already learned the routines around here. They're doing absolutely great and have made themselves right at home.

I posted our first family photo right after their bath on the pictures thread at http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...ily-photo.html (Amos and Andie's first family photo)

I also signed up for Pet Health Insurance through Healthy Paws on both of them this evening so now they're covered medically in sickness or injury.

Today, New Years Eve, is my birthday and they turned out to be the greatest birthday presents one could ever receive going into the New Year. Happy New Year everyone from "Amos" and "Andie"

I'll be posting quite a few more updates with them.
