A timid, scared 3 year female golden arrived at our home May 2014, after being surrendered to RAGofAZ.
Not knowing her history, we needed to watch and learn, as she did the same of us. We felt a special connection to her and decided to adopt her as our own.
We took Rose on her first of many trips to the Midwest to meet families in Minnesota/Wisconsin. She is a wonderful travel companion. We bring her to our cabin in Northern Wisconsin to enjoy nature walks, pontoon rides, jumping off the dock and retrieving in the clear northern waters. Over the past years we have enjoyed traveling with Rose in 15 states, numerous National Parks, and visiting friends.
Rose greets us every morning and when we return home, with full love in her eyes, her smile and wagging tail. She entertains us with humming as she watches us have dinner. She loves to watch movies with animals, and runs to the computer if she hears an animal video. Rose also shows every dog that visits how to jump in the pool.
Once Rose realized she was here to stay, her personality blossomed into the lovely Golden Girl she was meant to be.
Our “Secondhand” Rose is just what our home needed.
