They have lots of matts around their hind legs. We'll get that worked on. They are definitely velcro boys, want to be in your lap!! Will upload in a few minutes for all to see. We are so lucky that this pair rescued us with the help of an angel!

It has been so incredibly difficult without our boy Max that we had to send to the bridge last July at 14 3/4's, Di 5/2011 and our Golda 4/2007. No one could ever replace them in our hearts. But really feel this was meant to be and am sure that their love will now blossom in a new place in our hearts.
Aw-www-this just warms my heart! I can't imagine how lonesome you and they must have been. Now you all have one another!! They sure took no time to acclimate!

Wonderful news! They seem to be already settling into their new forever home & I am sure the next few days are going to be busy but awesome, as you all get to know one another. Can't wait to hear what their new names are going to be.

congratulations! I missed this thread yesterday. they sound like wonderful dogs, and I think you'll find them sooooo happy to be loved and indoors.

My Bella was an outdoors dog too, and hadn't been given any training, so I'm working with her now. Perhaps we should start a thread for "parents of newly adopted adult dogs" or something like...

I'm looking forward to the pictures.

I'm so sorry that it took so long!!

My husband had to drive all the way to Tacoma to get the new battery. We live in a small town and no one here had a camera battery. The after pictures are a huge difference yet. But at least they are clean now and smell nice!! The groomer will have to attend to the knots Sunday. They have an appointment this weekend with the groomer. I had to wash our clothes as well. We all smelled just like them when they arrived.

They are such good boys and well behaved. Am going to have to try to get some work done today and tomorrow! Won't be much good for them if I'm un-employed!! Very lucky that I work from home.

Will take them to the vet Saturday to get exams. Thanks so much again for all of you embracing these 2 exciting new members of our family. Oh the patter of golden paws again...............
