I receive many emails like this and every single one is heartbreaking...
Hi, Belinda. Our good friends just lost their Golden Retriever, River, yesterday. They're heartbroken and I'd like to get your opinion on your favorite combination of fabric and thread colors for a pillow in River's memory. Thank you! Andrea L.But, River has a beautiful story thanks to his adoptive family and an organization called Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue.
Andrea shared that River was her friend's first dog. A Golden, rescued by Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue in Elverta, CA, just outside of Sacramento. Found loose, wandering the streets of Northern California, River was picked up as a stray.
River was lucky, he found himself in the loving hands of Homeward Bound's all-volunteer organization which rescues and heals displaced, abandoned, and homeless Golden Retriever and Golden mixes, regardless of their age or health.
Through Homeward's adoption program, River was placed with Andrea's friend, Laura, into what she calls "the most incredible, forever home".
Let's celebrate all of the wandering hearts like River who find their forever homes with wonderful organizations like Homeward Bound.
And let's celebrate those years our hearts are warmed by our furry friends' cold noses and warm snuggles, like Andrea did for River's family.
