Meet Nicholas

I know we still need to post Part 2 of our Sherlock mystery, but we wanted to share with you a very special boys who needs prayers and love sent his way...

Aaron and I are proud supporters of Arizona Golden Retriever Connection.  Every Golden who passes thru the loving arms of this organization is special and in some cases, only needs a place to rest a weary head for a night before moving on to their forever homes.

Sometimes, however, a case comes thru that can pull at you heart and make you wish you could move heaven and earth to change the world for one small pup.   Some are truly broken when they come to AZGRC and need a little more love and a lot of help.

Meet Nicholas...  Nobody knows what happened to Nicholas, but the fates brought him to AZGRC.  Nicholas has a growth on his face of some sort (the next picture is graphic), weighed only 44 lbs (...in comparison, our rather lean Monty weighs 65), and was covered in mats and ticks.
Nicholas getting a little lovin'....
In the short time AZGRC has had Nicholas, he has already shown signs of improvement.  Who wouldn't with all this loving?
Getting snuggled in the van...

Typical Golden - always room for a treat...
There is still no answer as to what the growth/injury on his face is. 

I'm still a handsome fellow!
Nicholas definitely needs a Christmas miracle.  He has a lot of healing he will need to do before he can look for his forever home.  If you would like to follow Nicholas' story or donate a little to help with his care, you can click this link

In the mean time, he could really use a little Power of the Paw. 
Is this the way to my new home?

We are sending Nicholas lots of GOLDEN love!

  14. Sam and Monty,
    Gus, Sophie, Toby and Shado have been following Nicholas story every day, too. Each awaiting we all await the new report. Oh how we think on him with prayers and hopes that the growth shrinks and can be removed. And that he eats well, grow strong like us, and learns to play again. He already has the lovin' part learned. We can't wait to read when he goes to his Foster Family and then Forever Family. Wish it could be us - or you.
