People remember that Mom's a softy - especially when it comes to us retrievers - so it is no surprise that we have received a couple of phone calls in the past few weeks about other dogs like Kudzu who are looking for a good home.
The first call came from a dear friend at Brookhaven Animal Rescue League. "Samantha, we've had a gentleman drop off a mother and daughter Golden Retriever. He'd lost his job and house. They are in great condition, but need a home. You know anyone?"
Hot dog! Did Mom know someone? This was just the kind of call she'd been waiting for! When we had the dog camp at the end of summer, Mom had formed a special bond with one of her young campers. "Moon" was drawn to our Goldens and had helped Mom with Kudzu and Scarlet some during the week. Mom knew that Moon's family would be the perfect home for these two dears. She called Moon's mom right away and sure enough, they wanted them both!

Another few weeks passed before Mom received the call about our foster pup Melody. You remember? She'd been thrown out at a vet clinic and had a broken front leg, torn tendon in her rear leg, and a bruised eye. She couldn't walk when we got her but made a miraclous recovery soon after.
Well, it looks like she has found her fairy tale ending too. She has gone to live in a home similar to ours - a bunch of kids and a bunch of dogs. It does our hearts good to know we were the difference in life and death for this precious pup who is now enjoying the good life.

We've really missed Melody but knew from the get-go that we wouldn't be able to be her furr-ever home.
We're looking forward to planning some retriever play days with all our new buddies soon. It'll be a dog gone good time for sure don't ya know!
