Hi, this is Shaggy letting GRRoW know how I love living with my forever family! The humans are adjusting well to me and they report that I've done a great job of fitting in to their home. Mom and Dad are around pretty much all the time. I supervise when he is shoveling snow and working in the kitchen. He even gave the other Golden Retriever, Lacy, and I a spa day last Saturday. He checked our ears, and I let him clean my teeth, gums and tongue everyday. This is something new but Lacy says there's always a treat after so go along with it. Mom enjoys having a dog that will snuggle upon her lap. I'm a bigger dog but Mom says I'm light enough. I have to make sure she knows I'm jumping up so she can set her coffee aside. My forever family has two kids who are fun to play with. Their rooms are sources of wonderful things to carry around. They call me a sock goblin and they're trying to train me to put the socks I find into the laundry basket, but it's easier to drop them in the living room when I'm tired of carrying them around. I have trained the family that a single bark means I'm ready to come in. I won over the affection of the Lacy, my new golden sister, so we can share the love seat for sleeping (a love seat is made for two, right?)
My forever family and I want to thank GRRoW and my foster home so that I was well prepared for my move to my forever home. Hopefully, someday I can road trip to a GRRoW event and meet other dogs who were lucky enough to have their lives changed through GRRoW.
