Through a Dog's Eyes
Loba -- Home at Last!
Not long ago, we posted an update on Loba about the lumps that were found on her body. But some good news now for Loba! Pat, her foster mom, has agreed to be Loba’s permanent foster mom and Loba will live out her days with her mommy, 2 canine siblings, and 2 kitty pals.
For Loba and everyone who helped her - from the day she came terrified to rescue, until now, as she lays on the bed and relaxes, – your efforts have not been in vein. With Pat, Loba has found her forever home where she will know nothing but kindness!
You can read Loba's full story on her bio page.
Amber - Dog of the Month!
Amber is a sweet Golden mix who was tearfully surrendered by her former family when their lives took some unexpected changes. The family had to move to an apartment and Amber was no longer able to climb 3 flights of stairs. Amber is a wonderful dog with a pleasant personality and a tail that never stops wagging. She is good with children, dogs and cats. Read more about Amber on her bio page!
SGRR's Alumni Corner
Dixie Lou was adopted in the winter after Hurricane Katrina. Her mom told us, "She was a spirited redneck girl who never let anyone forget she was there. She slurped babies and cats alike, and never had a bad growl for anyone. We think she was around 15 when she left us, and never lost her love for her family. She really was several rays of Sunshine in our lives."
To Your Dog's Health!
As the warm weather approaches, many dogs owners ponder the question, "to shave or not to shave...?" By nature, a dog's coat is designed to keep it cool during the summer and warm in the winter. Shaving your pet interferes with this built-in temperature regulation. Click this link to read more on this topic.
SGRR has compiled an abundance of information about Golden Retrievers (and other breeds of dogs). We believe strongly in the importance of education and we’re happy to share the knowledge we have gained through experience and research.
