The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

All they need is love, a home and food

There on the Community Board stuck down with a pin was this notice

"Free to Good Home" DD did a double take as she walked past. Not believing her own eyes A Golden Retriever and he is beautiful. Chief is 10 years old, "past his use by date " and needing a home.

Well yesterday he moved in, here he may live out his next 5 or maybe 8 years until he is an old man. and is ready for Doggie Heaven. He is the best Christmas present anybody could have given my husband, who has always wanted a retriever but could not due to us having so many animals. The thought of ending his life at this young age was all it toke for us to take him in. He is going to be one happy dog here with us.
Until nexttime


  1. I love a happy story like this - he's a beauty!!!

    You asked if the zoo armadillos are babies. You know what - I have no idea and I've never thought to ask. I wonder how long it takes a nine-banded armadillo to grow to that size. Definitely something to remember to look up.

  2. A good Christmas spirit. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

  3. Thank you Johanna and flmom,
    I think we are the lucky ones getting such a nice dog to love.
    Best wishes to you for Christmas and the New Year.

  4. That is a beautiful dog - I am so glad you took him in and I'm glad your husband is happy - a win win situation. Happy New Year. Sandie

  5. Wishing you a happy new year. Sandie

  6. Your photos are wonderful. Wishes for a happy and healthy new year!

  7. First time visiting your blog. So glad that Goldie found a new loving home. It breaks my heart that people can just get rid of their pets. Totally can't understand it. Of course, having 2 goldies of my own I have no idea how anyone could get rid of their goldie. At 10 years your boy could still have another 2-5 with you. And he will give you so much love. So glad I stumbled upon your blog.
