I picked Rosie up to foster about 1 month after her 13th birthday. Her family no longer had the time to care for her. She was on painkillers due to some major dental work, but even after a few hours in my home I knew she had an amazing personality. As it turned out Rosie had already found her forever home. She was an avid ball nut and once she was introduced to the Kong, it became her favorite toy which she slept with on most nights. She was a very active senior girl, and her attendance at all GRRR events were so much fun for her. She really enjoyed making the rounds to greet all people and dogs.
When she wasn’t retrieving balls, digging small holes in the yard, barking at cats who had the nerve to walk by her yard, she would lay on her back with a ball between her paws flipping it around to catch it. She was just “The Best”.
Three months after her 17th birthday we had to say goodbye. I am so grateful to GRRR that she got to spend her last years with me. She was my sweet companion and made me laugh every day. There is a very special place in my heart for Rosie and all senior Goldens.
