We apologize for not posting all week. Sam has been so miserable with his ears that we couldn't get any pictures of the boy looking happy. The good news is Sam did not have to have his ears repacked! We were able to give him a bath before his play date!
This is Marty!
Marty is currently being held by the Arizona Golden Retriever Connection, the local Golden rescue that Aaron and I support. Marty was turned in to the pound for unknown reasons, but which we suspect were just because he is a normal, happy Golden Retriever pup. Marty came over to meet Sam.
This is the biggest smile we have seen from Sam all week!
The people who had owned Marty before had allowed him to roll in the dirt and play immediately after having him neutered. Because of this, the whole area had become swollen and infected. He is currently on the mend, just very thin.
Marty made Sam look like a tank!
We were so busy watching Sam and Marty play, that we forgot to take pictures! We remembered a little later, but by then, Sam was happy sitting with the people while Marty explored.
This is a big mountain I need to climb!
Marty, in typical water dog fashion, found the pool to be rather pleasant. Sam, in his typical non-water dog fashion, was horrified.
What are you doing, Marty?
Look at this! How cool!
Get out, quick! You are going to drown!
For the love of dog, somebody save him!
After we convinced Marty to play on dry land, he and Sam tried to order treats through the door.
We would like three crunchy treats, some yams, two antlers...
I'll have to take you to Starbucks, Marty, they have the best treats!
We think Marty had a good time.
Ummm, can I come back?
Of course you can, Marty!
