Just been reading through this thread & I think it's so lovely that you now have three of these gorgeous Golden Oldies. I am sure Hank thinks he is in seventh heaven! What a wonderful cottage in the woods. You & your goldies must have a fabulous time there. Looking forward to more pics & more updates. Below is a pic of my six month old boy Loki with one of our cats ....we have three felines & two canines & hopefully be adding a third canine to even it all up lol. I think Loki would love to spend time romping about the woods with your happy bunch .....if he could just afford the airfare from NZ!

I bet HANK would Thank You for Millie and Nikki and they would thank you too, if they could speak. Where did Millie and Nikki come from. I would say those are three Lucky Dogs and I am so HAPPY for them and you!!

Nikki and Millie came from a young family that were going to be doing lots of travelling. They were finding that between travelling and their the kids getting involved in sports and stuff they didn't have the time to give to Nikki and Millie. I lucked out! They are adapting well. We got them on the scales - Nikki is 91 lbs and Millie is 99 lbs. Hank is a slightly larger dog and he is carrying so extra weight at 82 lbs. I have them all out walking - surprisingly Millie is always pushing harder than Hank or Nikki. Funny how dogs go eh? Millie and Nikki are starting to get used to eating from their bowls rather than the counter or the table! I am optimistic that amongst the four us we can shed well over 100 lbs by the first of May! Great fun having three dogs and things are going very well - I am pleasantly surprised at how well they are getting along and enjoying each other.
