Hey puppals, Rootbeer here.
Well let me tell you all that my sister Mandi & I have now been here with our new mommy & Daddy & other 2 sisters for over a year now. I am such the lucky golden. I remember a year ago, my sis & I were running the streets of Corona California with blisters on our paws until that big scary looking white truck pulled up and cornered us and then put me and sis in a small cage together. We were cramped, hurting and didn't know what was going on with us. At least we ran away from the abuse we were getting at the other place that was suppose to be home.
We were at the pound maybe 2 days, then this pretty lady walked over to our cage. You could saddness in her eyes (we found out later her best friend a golden named Brandi passed away), but we sat there all excited as to let her know we wanted her.
She walked away and then we were sad. The next day she came back and they took us to a gated area with grass and that same lady was back sitting in there waiting for us. We got up all in her face, licking her and letting her touch us. She started crying and we didn't do anything to hurt her and then she said to us, "You know, if it wasn't for my Brandi girll coming to me in my flower garden and telling me to come here, I would still be in my bed. I have 2 other goldens at home I hope you get along with. I don't know why Brandi wants me to have you two come live with us, but she said to come here and they will be there waiting for me. So I guess its you two."
Wow! poor lady for losing her golden, but yippeee for my sis and I cause we were going together to a new home. Then she was gone!!!!! Wait, what about us? you forgot to get us lady!!!! Well then 2 days later she was back and we came to where we are now. The best home any golden or two could live. Mommy and daddy are the best. She tells me all the time I remind her of her Brandi girl, even though I'm a boy, I take it as a compliment. Brandi seemed important in my mommies life and so mommy loves me because Brandi told her to come get us. I can never thank Brandi enough for telling mommy that. I know we gave mommy a really hard time this first year, but she just gave us more love until we had so much love inside us, we started to behave. she never gave up on me and my sister. I will Mandi tell you how bad she was in her journal, and I just followed my sister. That was wrong of me I know now. Now I sleep right next to mommy everynight. she spoons me and puts her arm around me and I feel so safe, so loved and so protected from everything. I am one happy happy golden and so is my sister.
well gotta run now. mommy and daddy are taking us swimming. Life was ruff, but now it's grrrrrreat!

Daddy took me for a ride!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all,
Rootbeer here!!!!
Wow!!! I was very nervous today when mommy went grocery shopping. Daddy came home from work because of the rain and it was great to have him home during the day too. So, after mommy left, daddy was going to drive to the dumpster to empty the trash. He put a leash on me and I thought "Oh boy!! Daddy and me are going for a walk"!!

But instead he walked me around his truck and he had the passenger door open and the extra truck in the driveway was next to it, so I couldn't go around it or passs it.
I got so scared cause daddy was telling me to get in the truck, that I pee'd right there on the driveway. Daddy said it was okay but then he lifted me up into the truck and shut the door. I was so afraid that he was taking me away from my family that I was shaking. Daddy kept petting me and telling me it was okay, but I was so afraid.
I saw daddy empty the trash while I waited inside the truck and I wanted out. When daddy came to get back into the truck, I tried to bolt, but he was in the way and pushed me back telling me it was okay.
Where is he taking me??? I want to go home!!!! I want to see mommy now!!!
Daddy turned around and we were heading now back home. I was still scared until I saw daddy pull us into the driveway and open the truck door and told me to get out. I jumped out of the truck so fast and ran to the front door, not even waiting for daddy. Daddy opened the front door and there was all my sisters there waiting for me and all started licking me and howling. I was so happy I wasn't taken away.
It was kind of fun going with daddy because he brought me back home to where I wanted to be.
I might, and I said "MIGHT" go for another ride with him if he asks me. It was okay, kind of neat.

I have been so afraid to get in my mommies truck or daddy's truck for fear they would take me away, but I believe they just want me to enjoy riding in the truck like Ginger and Ally do. They go everywhere with mommy and I want to too, and mommy asks me all the time, but I run away. Maybe next time, I wont. Maybe next time I just might go for the ride with my sister's.
Woof Woof!!!!

I just want to say I love my new mommy so much and my new daddy too.
Mommy always smells good and when I lay my head on her chest and breathe in, I fall a sleep and feel so content and loved. I never knew what love felt like until my mommy adopted me and my sister Mandi. We were running for a long time to where we had blisters on our paws and no nails. Mandi got a lot of ticks and when we came to this house, daddy gave her a bath right away and shaved all her hair off. It is growing back now, but she looked funny.
I am glad me and my sister are together and have a happy home. It's real cool. Hope we don't do anything to make them get rid of us, but I don't think we are going anywhere even if we did do something wrong or bad. I love it here so much.
Thanks God, your cool to find us this new family and home.
No more running and being hungry. Mandi is getting fat now and better stop eating so much or I won't admit she is my sister to anyone. He hehe
