Hello and Thanks

Just wanted to thank this forum for getting me through my loss of "Jack" December 16, 2012, giving me a place to come to and see and read how I wasn't the only one that know how much Goldens are our best friends.

I lucked into a great Foster dog "Ratchet" that will be 3 years old in April. I adopted him February 1 and what a great dog! He has some really big "Paws" to fill but what a great start.

I'm sorry about Jack, I hope Ratchet can help your heart to mend a little. Maybe he'll be a failed foster??

Ratchet is simply adorable. He won't fill the hole in your heart, but he will expand it with more love. Congratulations on your new family member!

Glad that you open up your heart to that beautiful boy! I am pretty sure that he will help you healing as much as you helped him by adopting him.
