Yes I know what you will say (or think) he looks just like all my other fosters :laughing: (another senior :sad: ) I'm waiting a bit to put him up in the adoption thread because someone may already be interested in him :goodvibes:

Wow, Frenchy, another senior Golden! How CAN someone get rid of their old dogs? Paco looks cute, I hope he finds his new family soon.
You really are a great person!

Frenchy
June 23rd, 2007, 10:43 PM
I only have 4 :laughing: I don't think I can handle 1 more, I always have 1 or 2 on meds or drops or ointment...

Suzieqt, almost all the goldens we get are olders. Guess people get tired of them :frustrated: And shelters only gives them to us (the rescue) when they are not adoptable (either sick,injured or older :sad: ) They are such wonderful dogs, that's why it's usually easy to find them nice new families who will love them for the rest of their life. :thumbs up

how sweet!!

Grr.. I don't understand people at all sometimes. How could someone give up an older dog?? Do they really, really not understand how much they mean to their dog family??

Thank goodness there are folks like you to foster and find good homes, Frenchy!! HUGS.

If only the owner just left him at the shelter, but no, she wanting him put down :frustrated: when they asked why she said he was sick. So they asked more questions and got her to say that he wasn't sick afterall , but she was moving :mad: So I guess they convinced her to not have Paco euthanize, and they call me to see if I would take him.

He is such a handsome boy. :lovestruck: I will admit though that I have a hard time telling all your goldens apart. :o Good luck with the adoption. :fingerscr :goodvibes:

I will admit though that I have a hard time telling all your goldens apart.

I think he looks a lot like Otter's Molly and a bit like Daisy too . Julie the rescuer (the friend that picked him up) asked me how will I tell him apart from the others, but you just know when it's your dogs.

Sweet old soul. Imagine putting a dog down because you're moving, bad enough to want to part with a dog after that long let alone decide to end it's life. :frustrated:

I know clm :sad: I think we are going to hear a lot about those this week. It's "Quebecers national moving day" on July 1. The leases are from July 1 and for one year so many many people move on July first, all the spca will get lots of unwanted pets this week. :sad: And they are already full capacity.

I agree....it would be easier when you see them in person but it's a little harder in pictures. :o

The Ontario (well they call themselves Canadian) Golden rescue is often inundated with dogs once summer holidays start :eek: How could you give up a dog to go on vacation?????? I guess next weekend (Canada Day) is the start of the "dog days of summer". Good luck to all those poor doggies out there!:fingerscr that someone talks some sense into any owners out there thinking of giving up a dog in lieu of holidays!

So many places you can take dogs with you on vacation, why not plan to take them along?
I just don't get it.:shrug: :confused:

Paco is sooooooooooo lucky to have landed in :angel: Frenchy's hands. I know he's in good hands.

A collective GRRRRRRRRR from all of us for those dumb-@sses who insist on dumping their dogs for all kinds of stupid reasons!!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: If I ever found someone like that, oh what I would like to do to them.....!!! :evil:

So is Paco with the foster now? Any word on that possible adoption? Oh, I hope it works out! Poor baby deserves nothing but happiness. That is so sad about July 1st being a common desertion day for dogs. :sad:

Sure ! His foster family you mean ? It's me :D It's looking very good for his adoption , the lady already adopted a senior golden from us years ago, her dog died not long ago. She's been looking / waiting for another senior, I sent her pics and a description of Paco and she sounds really interested. :highfive:

I can't speak for Frenchy but I know I am so thrilled that we were able to match Paco with his new mom. It makes it all so worthwhile. His new mom has e-mailed me and asked me to thank Frenchy so I thought I would do it publicly.

:thumbs up Thank you Frenchy:thumbs up

Now all we have to work out is getting him from Sherrington to Toronto.

Any ideas?:D

For those who remember Paco and his mom .... Unfortunately , Paco died last week end. He had a wonderful 4 years with his mom.

Good news is , his mom has asked me to find her another senior golden to spend her days with. :)
