Likes: people food and Daddy. Goldie likes riding in my Kayak and Daddy's truck.
Pet-Peeves: Baths, why me? Squirrels & the opossum that sneaks in the yard at night. People who abandon and mistreat animals. She hates people who don't spay or neuter unless they want more puppies or kittens, then maybe it is ok is they will get them ALL good homes.
Favorite Toy: Raggie, one of those large rope toys and Daddy of course. Mommy's leopard print house shoes, do not tell. Warm laundry.
Favorite Food: canned Iam's or PEOPLE FOOD and anything the kitten is eating looks good.
Favorite Walk: on the Buffalo Bayou or the dog park and lake over the dam at Briar Forest and Highway 6
Best Tricks: roll over, paw and negotiating human food
Arrival Story: We were coming home from a Christmas party 8 years ago and saw her on Beltway 8 exit ramp. We circled back and risking life and limb, I ran back up the ramp and grabbed her. I promised her right then and there I would do whatever it took to get her well and happy again. We got her home and discovered she couldn't walk on her back leg and wouldn't drink or eat so we took her to the doggie ER. The vet said she had had puppies in the last 24 hours and she was probably thrown from a vehicle. It is not uncommon. After 4 days in the ICU and a week at the regular vet she was able to go home with us for a long recovery. I had to spoon feed her for the first week. She cried and hobbled around looking for her puppies for a month. A few months later she fell in love with us. Cecil the cat helped a lot too by giving her lots of baths.
Bio: Goldie was very traumatized for the first year but after lots of love and some training and getting her a kitten she started coming around. We have had her over 6 years now and she is just a great little grateful hound. I'd like to take a baseball bat to the jerks who abandonded her and almost murdered her in the process. This dog changed and enriched me and my husbands relationship as we now have a wonderful little dog baby. Goldie is so sweet and loving and smart we are very fortunate to have been able to rescue her. She is named Goldie because she is worth her weight in it. The Vet fixed her broken leg and we fixed her broken heart.
