So excited! Just got approved for rescue!

We had our home visit on Saturday and received our approval today from As Good as Gold! We're on the waiting list and can't wait to bring home a new golden to our family.

Congratulations to you. That is very exciting. I know because we went through that a few months ago and brought our Lily home 3 days before Christmas this year. I know you will find an incredible companion.

Congrats! I waited for months for a golden to come through the rescue but had no luck, eventually I just rescued a misplaced puppy off Craigslist.

I know I'm jumping way ahead of myself here since we don't have a rescue yet, but any words of advice for integrating him with Duke - my 21 month old golden.

You will probably bring Duke to the meeting at the foster family, at least that's how it was for us. A car ride home and before we went into the house we took them on a long walk together.
