Our Story:

I HAD TO PUT THE “LOVE OF MY LIFE,” CASSIE, DOWN ON MARCH 29, 2006. CASSIE WAS A BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN…WITH A HEART OF GOLD AND THE JOY OF LOVE IN HER HEART!!! SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BONE CANCER AND I DECIDED TO KEEP HER COMFORTABLE AND AS PAIN FREE AS POSSIBLE UNTIL THOSE OPTIONS CEASED TO EXIST. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WAS DEVASTATED AND “SO VERY ALONE”!!!!

ONE NIGHT I WAS ONLINE, LOOKING AT GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE WEBSITES, AND I CAME ACROSS A WEB PAGE FROM A RESCUE IN SPRINGFIELD, MO. THE PICTURE WAS A MALE GOLDEN, 2 YEARS OF AGE, AND HE WAS CALLED “CARAMEL”.
TO MAKE THIS STORY SHORTER I RESCUED HIM…HE HAD BEEN CHAINED, BEATEN, KICKED, NO PROTECTION FROM THE WEATHER..NO WATER, NO FOOD!!!
I CHANGED HIS NAME TO “VELCRO” AND HE IS SUCH A “HAPPY BOY…WHAT A TEASE…WHAT A SMILE..WHAT A JOY!!!! VELCRO SAVED ME AND I SAVED HIM!!!!
