We told a bit of our story when we first started our bloggie. But we thought we'd tell some more.
Mom used to have mom and daughter golden retrievers.
This is Shelby the mom:
This is Roo the daughter with brother Petey.
Well Shelby got sick and crossed over the Rainbow bridge. That left Roo as an only dog. So mom and dad started talking about what kind of dog to get. Dad had lived in South Africa and had friends that had Ridgebacks, also a friend of his here had them growing up. So mom and dad sat down and started looking at the Ridgeback Rescue website.
They started looking here in Colorado but there were only a couple of dogs and they didn't like cats. Well dad has family in Texas so they started looking there. Well after looking at a bunch of dogs they found us. Oh bio said we were good with cats and that we like to play with other dogs, especially each other. Well as some of you may have noticed mom is a bit of a
Well long story short they passed the home visit and after talking to the Texas Coordinator mom borrowed her brother's Suburban and off to Texas they headed. They showed up at Ms. Celia's on Saturday morning. After a couple minutes she went and got us out of the house. When I came running out the first thing mom said, "Oh my God, I adopted a horse!!" She let Jada out too and we ran around some.
They brought Roo along to make sure we would all get along. Dad went to the car to let Roo out. I decided that I didn't want to wait to meet her and I just hopped up in the front seat. We all got along with Roo just fine. So after finishing the paper work we all loaded up in the car and started the trip back to Colorado. It was a bit of a long drive back, lets just say Jada has a nervous stomach. :-(
Once we got back mom took a bunch of pictures with the flashy beast to show us to people. These are some of them.
Mom's favorite picture!
Getting used to our new home.
We have had the best time since! We have definitely found our furever home!
