With your help the GRRSN 2015 Calendar will be a huge success!
ONLY 5 MONTHS REMAINING! ADVERTISEMENTS, PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES AND SNAPSHOTS ARE AVAILABLE!
The GRRSN Calendar, in addition to being a beautiful tribute to Golden Retrievers, will be one of our major fund raisers, enabling us to continue our work of saving and re-homing so many wonderful dogs.
Thanks to the unbelievable generosity, time, and talents of our members and volunteers, our calendar is produced at a minimal cost to our organization. Therefore, GRRSN can channel most of the calendar proceeds directly to the medical expenses associated with rescuing our dogs.
For a $25 donation you can be a part of this great fundraiser and showcase your Golden or Golden Friend in a 1" X 1.25" snapshot on our 2015 Golden Friends Pages. A $50 donation would qualify you for a 3.5' X 2.0'' photo opportunity. If you think that you would enjoy owning your own month (no theme), it is available to you for a $150 donation.
If you submit the $150 donation, you will qualify to have your photograph taken at Petographique Pet Photography......
Oh! And by the way, if you know anyone who would like to advertise in our calendar, $50 will buy them a business card size ad!

Perfect Golden Retrievers
More and more people seem to want perfect golden retrievers. You know, the ones that are always happy and well behaved. The ones who are gentle with little kids and love other dogs and cats and bunnies and hamsters. The ones who never growl or get grumpy. The ones who aren't bothered by thunderstorms. The ones who don't mind being left alone for hours. The ones who never jump up or bother you for attention. The ones who are healthy and don't require visits to the vet except for their annual check-ups. All these "ones" wrapped up in one dog.
I have never met a perfect golden retriever. I share my life with four golden boys and none seem to be perfect. They each have flaws. And some of those flaws cost a lot of money and certainly test my patience some days. If you are looking for a perfect golden retriever, you need to rethink that. AGA does not have perfect goldens for you to foster or to adopt. We certainly have wonderful dogs, but each requires lots of time being put into them, and not just for training.
Goldens require more attention than the average dog. They were bred to be companion dogs and not to be left alone. Goldens have health issues like many of the most popular breeds. We often say if you can get a golden retriever past 7 years of age without cancer, you have a great chance of having a senior golden by your side.
So, whether you are one of our wonderful foster families, an adopter or an applicant, please know that we can't produce a perfect golden retriever for you. We try our best to fix the health and behavior issues, but we will never fix everything.
Those of you who are lucky enough to share your life with a golden retriever, we know you wouldn't trade him or her or them for the world. You see, perfection is in the eye of the beholder and thankfully, we all need glasses.

It Takes Dozens of Volunteers to Keep
GRRSN has no paid staff. Everything we do to help homeless Goldens is done by volunteers. Some of our volunteers spend several hours a day and others much less. Your contribution makes a difference in a dog's life.....
If you are available to volunteer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . Home Visit and Transport Volunteers are needed.
Thank you, we know your time is valuable.

DO YOU HAVE A STORY?
Send to email@example.com
Chester joined our family in December of 2012. When he joined our family he became the big brother to 3yr old Golden Retriever Dusty. They became immediate best friends, playing constantly. If you didn't know better you would have assumed the two were raised together. Chester love hugs and cuddles from mom and dad especially when it's on the couch. He loves going for hikes at Red Rock, but really loves going to Mt. Charleston and rolling in the snow and swimming in the ponds. He hasn't braved the backyard pool just yet but we are hopeful to get him in with all of as the weather warms up. Recently we adopted another golden puppy. Although Chester wasn't too excited about the new little boy in the beginning and more than once he had to teach the puppy who the BIG DOG was in the house, they are now great buddies as well. The three dogs play often. Although one would think the puppy would be afraid of 100lb Chester, he looks for Chester to "save" and cuddle him when he gets in trouble, or when he is just too tired to play anymore. Chester happily cuddles little Shadow.
Sadly approximately two months ago we took Chester to the Vet as he was limping. We assumed that he had twisted his leg or paw while playing. Unfortunately we were wrong. We received a diagnosis of Bone cancer and were told he might live 6 months. We walked away that day with pain med's and lots of tears. Fortunately Chester is doing GREAT! Although he can have two pain med's a day he only needs one. He is still playing with the younger dogs and looks forward to neighborhood walks, and still loves to run off his leash, splash in the ponds, and roll in what snow is left on Mt. Charleston. We are hopeful that Chester will last for a long time, but no matter how long he is with us, he will be loved and cuddled by the whole family.
Dear Golden Retriever Rescue, Southern Nevada,
See attached picture of Harry, who we adopted this past January. He joined the other "Schrader Boys" and now there are three of them. Harry is the blonde golden on the right. He's joined Nigel and Charles (all goldens) and the three of them get along fine. All three are laid back guys who love to go on walks and chase each other around the house. We are still amazed how compatible they are with each other. Our daughter even made a special trip home from college to meet Harry . We are happy to provide a home for Harry with us and his new dog "brothers". These dogs bring so much joy and fun into our home. Thanks for much!

Hey Guy's and Gals
We can't thank you enough for bringing Sage into our lives.
He is such an Awesome Dog !
Sage has found his place in our Family, he has his favorites but he is 100% a Mommas Boy !
Sage acts a little different with each of our boys, bouncy with some and snuggles with others, but I can tell that he Loves all of us.
He lives the show 2 cute on Animal Planet and I swear he tries to talk to the puppy's that he sees on the show.
Once again Thank You so much !
Dear Debbie --
You remember Honey, don't you? I thought you might enjoy these pictures of Honey and my boyfriend playing with her ball and also Honey swimming in the creek up at Cold Creek, where my boyfriend lives. I also thought you might want to know that we are slowly cutting her medications down -- her potassium bromide has been cut in half and her phenobarbital by one-quarter. She is doing very very well and so far is still seizure-free. She is a total joy, and I am so blessed to have her. Thank you once again so very much. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
ALUMNI DELILAH AND BELLA
Attached is a photo of Delilah (on the left), who we adopted from GRRSN on Sept 22, 2007, and Bella, who we adopted, also from GRRSN on Nov. 4, 2012.
Thank you for everything you do. Our Goldens are very happy in our home.

I wanted to share with you a couple pictures of "Champ,' the wonder dog. My mom, (Sue Wilson) has a friend like non-other through Champ. He is now 11 years old, but doing great.
Champ was 155 pounds when he was adopted in 2007. Look at him now!!!!
