Arrival Story:
I know, I know, she looks a lot like Kirby. I said I wasn't getting another dog, but I woke up the Friday before St. Patrick's day with a strong urge to look at the local Golden Retriever rescue site, (, and there she was. Her personality profile sounded perfect for my home. I called a person I know in the rescue and asked her if she knew which one she was, and she said yes she had groomed her. She has as many dogs and cats as I do, and said she was wonderful at her house. Turns out she was being fostered at a home about a mile from my house. I put in my application for her, and had an appt. to meet with the foster mom that night. The woman who had her was worried about her going to my home because she is so docile. She was worried that she wouldn't get enough attention. They said it would be up to the foster mom as to whether or not I got her. Needless to say, when I met Mandy it was love at first sight, and she went home with me that night. We even walked in the golden retriever rescue parade the next day.

Mandy was originally named Candy when she went into rescue. The people who had her were using her as a breeding dog. She had just been spayed, and she was so "used" looking that her teets hung down like udders. I felt so bad for her. The people who had her took her to a vet, not their vet to have her euthanized because of her chronic ear infections. Luckily the girls at the front desk realized what a wonderful dog she was and contacted golden rescue. And now she's with me. Though she looks a lot like Kirby my last olden golden, her personailty is very different. People at work call her my band-aid dog because she helps me not miss Kirby so much. I feel that she fills a hole left in my heart from Kirby, and I enjoy having the chance to give her the best years of her life. The golden years! As for her "chronic ears". She gets them cleaned as much as any of my other dogs. The only thing "chronic" about her ears is their cuteness!!!!

I've been tagged by my friend GiGi and I have to name 5 naughty things about myself and then I get to pass it on to 5 other friends!!

This is gonna be hard, cause for the most part, I'm a perfect dog! But I'll try.....

1. Probably my worst habit is that I'm a trash hound!! Momma gets so mad at me cause if she leaves me alone at home, I get into the trash, and it is everywhere!!!!!

2. Usually Momma takes me everywhere cause if I stay at home, well, see above. But when she does take me, and leaves me in the car....well, I sometimes wander about in the car if left alone for too long, and have been known to find food in the car and eat it! Things that she may not have even known were there...heee heee!

3. uuummmm, sorry, momma and daddy have concured, but they can't think of anything else either..... Now if this was about my new sister Maulie, or by brudder Reddog, well it may be a much longer list.....sorry......

4. Still,
5. Got nothing.....

My 5 friends are:

Ella ~ 710533

Maxwell ~ 484799

Gibbon ~ 238846

Maya ~ 641106

I'm so excited I got new prezzies! Tug toys, and chew toys, and bones oh my! This is a good day!
Well so far I'm doing well. Mom has me on new chinese herbs for my urinary issues, and I think it's working. She also has been doing accupuncture for me. It feels a little weird, but afterwards and the next day I feel like a new puppy! I still get to go to work with mom everyday, and get all sorts of loving! My new brother Rhu has turned out to be ok, and I guess eventually my new sister Maulie will be. When she stops getting in my face. Hope everyone has a good Christmas and a happy new year!
