Arrival Story:
After the loss of our 11-year old pointer, Cookie, we felt that Riley missed sharing his days with a companion. We considered getting a puppy, but instead wanted to have the same dynamic of a senior and younger dog. Inspired by some of our pup pal parents, we searched petfinder for an older pointer to adopt. Searching separately, both Caroline and I found Rosie and were drawn to her by her story.

Rosie spent the first 7 years of her life outside on a concrete pad. Her days were spent in isolation and she never knew the love of an owner. Just over two years ago, Rosie was rescued by Illinois Birddog Rescue. Since that time she had stayed with a foster family and learned to receive and give love. Recently, her foster family had to give Rosie up due to a job transfer that saw them relocate to China. Displaced once again, Rosie's future was uncertain. Her write up on petfinder, along with her blog reached out to us and instantly compelled us to contact IBR. Over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, Caroline, Riley and I drove over 10 hours to Lafayette Indiana to pick up Rosie and bring her north to her forever home.

Hey pals,

My pal Strider and I have been on a great adventure. I can't really disclose what we've been up to, it's a secret, but it just might have something to do with ancient ruins that have been lost for thousands of years.

Oh, I've said too much.

I want to thank my pals for sending me Bridge anniversary messages. I've been here for 5 years.

In my life, I always felt alone, but here at the Bridge I have so many wonderful friends.

Each day I get to hang with Strider and my lab gal-pal Daisy. I have my protector, Vermont Labbie Remy, looking out for me . . . every so often my coyote pal, Oberon, comes to visit.

We have all settled in at the farm. You wouldn't believe how much it has grown. The adventure with the evil Leviticus is behind us. Love rules all here at the Bridge.

Big hugs to all of you.

Your pal, Rosie

3 Years

That's how long I've been here at the Bridge. Time goes by so very quickly. Since my arrival so much has happened. Recently I made a wonderful new friend. His name is Strider.

Some might say he can be a little grumpy at times, but I love that about him. The two of us head off looking for trouble.

Did I just say that? Don't worry, sweet Remy, we don't get into trouble. No, not us . . .

At least that's what I tell Cookie. She can be so protective. Even more so that my dear, Remy and his brother Magnum.

You know, adventure is all around us . . . across that creek, around the next bend. Something tells me that Strider and I will find trouble one day. I found it once, those years ago when I first arrived at the Bridge and something tells me that I'll find it again.

Sometimes trouble has a way of finding you.

Thank you to all of my wonderful friends for sending me messages on my crossing anniversary. You know how to make a girl feel special.

We still celebrate them here at the Bridge. Really any excuse to get together and have a great time and we're all over it.

This morning, before the festivities of later today, my new arrival pal, Strider and I are going to head out on a little adventure. There's trouble out there and we want to find it.
