My parent's new dog :D

Ever since Ruby and I moved out my parents have been having dog withdrawls :( My mom had wanted a Golden since she was a little girl and decided it was time for her to get one. We've all been keeping our eyes open on PetFinder and just a few days ago my dad found Champ... a sweet male Golden/Lab mix. He just seemed so perfect for them... exactly what they were looking for :) Today my parents, myself, & Ruby took a long drive to Champ's shelter to meet him. We wanted to make sure he and Ruby would get along since we usually visit my parent's at least once a week. Everything went PERFECT! :D Champ is the ideal dog for them. He's five years old, intelligent, obident, playful, and SO SWEET. He is 60 pounds of pure love :D Anywho, onto some photos...

Now I just need to convince mom and dad to join PT ;)

You had me worried another big dog in your apt? Glad your folks got Champ he looks like a great buddy for Ruby and Brock to play with at the dog park.

*Be jealous* is right. I am so happy for your folks and for Champ. What a lovely story for you to be able to tell us (the second one I've encountered today). The wonderful qualities of both a lab and a golden certainly will make an ideal companion for your folks. From the pictures, he looks as if he is already feeling quite at home.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments :) I’m going to Email my dad a link to this thread :) Champ is such a sweet boy, I’m so happy for my parents, and Champ too :D

Kfamr – lol, yes, I have lost some weight. Thanks for noticing ;)

veegan – Yes, that is an owey on his chest :( The lady at the shelter (she was SO NICE, btw. You could tell she was feeling a little bittersweet about Champ leaving, she obviously liked him a lot) wasn’t sure what exactly happened. When she got him (from a kill shelter in Spokane, WA) he already had it (although it was uncared for until she got him :mad: ). It’s almost completely healed now though :) Yes, you MUST meet him soon. He is such a ham :D I can’t wait until he can go to Marymoor :D
