Thanks for the feedback! I did email the site where little Joey is (or was) but wow...Sacramento would be quite a trip. The encouragement/optimism about finding a dog closer to home is helpful to know. I did see Joey is a little guy and my husband would prefer a bigger dog; we're being a little bit discriminating also in our desires for size/ht/color and of course temperment so I know it may be a bit specific but I don't want to put a pet in a position of having to be re-adopted if s/he's not a good fit for us. I have an application placed on this site, not any others just yet.
I have a cousin in NJ who has a Golden, a relative puppy <1 year old, that due to circumstances there they have to re-place. I should tell her about this site if she doesn't already know. It's been -- and I'm sure will continue to be -- very helpful.
Thanks for the welcome, Lynne. I told my husband about this website today (that's our new DIL I'm pictured with) and how I saw a lovable looking fellow - thankfully he knows I'm talking about a doodle! - in AL. Got me to wondering how that works as we live in AZ. I imagine there are details about such procedures on this site I haven't yet read. We'd ideally like to add to our family sometime in 2010; we miss our loving Lab, Casey, who we had to part with after 14 and a half years shortly before my son's wedding this past October. Our home feels empty without her.
