We lost two of our Goldens, Trixie and Poppy, in a short time. Poor Charlie, our remaining Golden, was left alone after enjoying the company of his “girls”. Charlie is very shy but Trixie and Poppy helped him feel confident. I knew Charlie needed a companion.
Seeing Lacey on the GRRA website led me to meeting her at Adoption Day. She was perfect for Charlie. Her age, fourteen, wasn’t a drawback as Charlie is a senior too. She was very friendly and cheerful at Adoption Day, and I knew she would be a good match for Charlie.
When Lacey and Charlie met, it was like they were always friends. They acted like old friends who hadn’t seen one another for a long time. Lacey also loved my young grandchildren and didn’t mind if a Lego building fell over on her or a Hot Wheels car raced past her nose. She looked like she was enjoying the commotion. She loves going on walks and likes to be the leader. She fit in so well it’s hard to believe she hasn’t always been with my family.
We had a worry when we found some lumps that turned out to be cancerous. Dr. David, the veterinarian at Good Hands in Athens was able to remove the tumors and give Lacey a longer life. Even when she came home from surgery, she was smiling. She’s an example of a true Golden Retriever, always smiling, no matter what!
