Have a major announcement!!!!!

:drum mer:: drummer:

We woke up this morning kidless and will be going to bed with 2 golden boys!! I was working from home this morning and received the following email from Claire's Friend:

There are a pair of 5 yr. old golden retriever brothers that need a new home TOGETHER here on Whidbey Island. The owner says they need a better home - they are outside farm dogs, who have a blanket to sleep on. Owner says they need routine vaccinations, and wants to place them herself. Here's a picture and call XXXXXXXX if you know of the perfect home.

I called and left a message and she called us back. My husband is on the way home with them. Will probably be at least 3 more hours before they get home. I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!!!! We are going to be going to Pet Co right away and getting toys, a good quality food, tags, shampoo, etc, etc,

We will take lots of before and after pictures of them to post for everyone.

They will never spend another night outside, but will be in bed with us, if they would like to be!!
Here is the only picture that I have of them right now. Can hardly wait for those golden kisses that my husband is enjoying all the way from Whidbey Island!!

Congratulations on your new pups...I've said it once and I'll say it again Claire's Friend, Susan Marie, is an angel taking care of any golden or golden's that need a helping hand!

Have fun with your new crew and please post lots and lots of pictures. They're lucky to have found such a loving home.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
