I think the snow has already arrived :sad: we've got until spring to work out the logistics

Maybe Ben needs to keep looking....

I think Frenchy attracts amazing dogs... maybe you just need to convince her to move to BC

No thanks , already tried that but if JanM has a car , and she leaves right now to pick up Ben , she will get back to Vancouver before X-mas

I already had 2 people inquiring about Ben. Unfortunatly they are not the right families for him , but it always sounds promising when you get people to ask about an oldie ..... one day soon (I hope) it will be Ben's perfect family !

But that's what I was talking about.....you moved to B.C. once but didn't like it. And I was amazed and confused and couldn't understand why so I just grinned.

Is there anything else you've tried once and didn't like?

You didn't like BC??? I'll bet you weren't on the Island then - it's a totally different way of life on the Island than on the mainland...

Really, Frenchy, I think you should bring Ben out here and see how you like it...

Oh my - well, believe it or not, people are even more laid-back on the Island!
It suits my retired lifestyle for sure!

Frenchy is fostering Ben. She posts here everyday or you could pm her to inquire about filling out an application. Good luck .....Ben sounds like a real sweetheart.

Hi zelzou , first of all , welcome to pets.ca and thank you for considering the adoption of an older rescue Unfortunatly , I read that you will be living in an upper duplex. Ben is not good with stairs. He still needs my help sometimes (most of it coaxing on my part and my hand on his behind) to come up the 3 carpeted steps to get in the kitchen. He is getting better but I don't think he would ever be able to go up too many stairs. Please check out our other rescues here :

Ben has been adopted and will be leaving for his forever home this Sunday. His new family adopted 2 goldens from our rescue in the past , Ben will have 5 acres to stretch and build up his muscles and another golden brother.

Like always , I will be sad to see him go :sad: but I'm so happy for him !

And he won't have competition (like with Nelly) his "brother" has bad hips so Ben will probably be the faster dog.

Wow! Frenchy! Excellent work! another success story! and another beautiful boy saved! If it were not for dedicated people like yourself there would be no place for boys like Ben! It must give you great happiness to do this type of thing...

Thank you!

Thanks Cindy ! I still can't believe I had 3 very good families interested in him ! Older goldens are so lucky ! I know it's not always that easy for other breeds.

Maybe you could interest them in another Golden with the rescue? I imagine that would be your first suggestion!

Way to go Frenchy and Ben!!! Woo Hoo!

Jan, if you are going on a road trip, pick me up in Calgary!!!

Right now there are 3 golden's in the Calgary city pound. :sad: They look so sad, so lost. :sad: Hopefully someone will claim them.

WOW - that's wonderful for Ben! I am so pleased he will have a wonderful life (even though it won't include the ocean )

Ford Girl - since Ben has been adopted, I guess there's just no reason for me to brave the mountain passes, the snow, the cold, the stark prairies, and all that so, no road trip for me for now

Are you coming for turkey weekend? What area of the city? They are males, and all very handsom.

My sister went there yesterday to look at huskies they had...she found one at the SPCA, it's on hold for 10 days for it to be claimed by it's owners, so cute. I hope she gets her!

A new adoption

I have now adopted a new family member! A Border Collie named Charlie.
He is so beautiful. I adopted him from the SPCA. He's eight years old and apparently quite a bit over weight. But beautiful all the same!
