I didn't know until recently the site was still available. I've read some of the posts dating back to May, 2014. I joined the FB website, thinking this was closing down. So happy to find I was wrong! I'm sorry to hear of the passing of so many pups. Thank you Laura & RB Tucker for the happy birthday wishes to Jolly Molly. She's doing ok for a girl of 13+ yrs and diabetic. Like me, she's a bit slower moving around. Molly still enjoys life and occasionally acts like a pup, for a few minutes. We rescued an Anatolian Shepherd in '11. Daisy had the cutest ears---"Flying Nun Ears". Unfortunately, Daisy suddenly became ill on July 3, 2015. She didn't improve with treatment and was diagnosed with liver cancer. We helped her start her journey to RB on Aug. 10, 2015. Of course, it seems we have to have 2 dogs and we rescued a 5.5 yr old male golden doodle, whom we named Duke,a few days after Daisy's passing.Duke truly is a gentle giant (102# at his first vet visit) and loves everybody he meets.

I often think of Bill & the Sunday Stroll. No doubt, he is taking great care of our pups until we meet again.

I see many names from the past & hope to reconnect.

Re: Hi---

Welcome back Marcy, I too joined the FB group, but it's always nice to check in here in case someone posts that hasn't. I am keeping my dog limit to one for now, but you never know I just might change my mind...I need to stop looking at the rescue sites

Re: Hi---

I really had thought this site had shutdown. I'm glad it didn't b/c I see posts from GRiC friends who aren't on FB. It's nice to stay connected.

Duke is probably our last dog. Everyone who knows us has heard that comment many times and laugh when they hear it. When we don't have anymore dogs, we've thought about looking into fostering dogs for service personnel who are deployed and have nobody to take the dog during the deployment. But, that is down the road. In the meantime, we are cherishing our time with Molly, enjoying Duke, and loving them both.
