Mac here. This is a picture of me at Goldenrama. I made a new friend here this year, she was a pet communicator. She was really fun and knew a ton about me! Somehow she knew how much I like to play around, and my great sense of humor. She also knew how much I love my forever family.
Notice my favorite bandanna I am wearing- it is an Adopt A Golden one! Mom has to wash it for me so I can wear it all the time!

I am sure you all remember me. My name was Lolly. Now I go by Beezie. I spent the first few weeks in the program at GVS because I had parvo. While I was there I met a very wise old Golden named Henry. He was there fighting cancer and was really ready to get his wings. Henry had lived a very full life of almost 14 years being loved and cared for by his girl, Dominique. She was the only reason he decided to continue to fight. You see, Henry could not bear the thought of leaving his girl without a BFF. I listened as Henry told stories of all the adventures they had together over the years…going on walks and fun trips, to horseshows, school and cuddling every night! Henry even saved her life when she was 4 years old! He is so brave.
Just as Henry had promised, I went to go live with Dominique. She is my very own girl! Dominique is teaching me all about being a BFF. We spend every minute we can together. Henry was right. Life is really worth fighting for when you have so many things to look forward to each and everyday. Every now and then Henry calls down from his cloud and gives me a few pointers. When he does the girl always says, "Sweet girl, Henry used to do that too!" She smiles and kisses me right on the tip of my nose. And when she does, Henry smiles down from heaven and whispers to me, "The girl always used to do that to me too!"

Winston here, you may remember me as Boo, one of the November orphans of the month. I saw my brother Casper wrote a note yesterday! I was just writing to update you on my new life and home from the past 3 weeks.
I have gone from 5 pounds to now 13 pounds. Sadie and Finn, (my golden sister and brother) have taught me the family life. I especially love following Finn around. Sadie is more of my mom, who loves to sneak nibbles at my food. They have been very nice to me. My guilty pleasure has become getting brushed every night, which I love. Hope Casper and Milky are having fun in their new homes and receiving the same amount of love as I am. My owners and I look at Adopt A Golden Atlanta every night to see new updates and adoptions. Today Taylor (my human sister) and I went on my first walk. I was very excited to smell all the different smells and meet all my neighbors. Thanks again AGA for all your help in finding me a new family!
Love, Winston (aka BOO PUP)

So, I never feel alone! I'm sure Milky and Boo will be writing shortly with great stories about their new forever homes. Thanks Adopt A Golden for making us youtube stars and finding us all loving forever homes.

This family walks and hikes a lot which helps me get my teenage energy out. I went on my very first hike this weekend to Kennesaw mountain where I met lots of other doggies. I sure do like hiking. My new parents tell me I'm going to be an excellent trail dog.
I like that my new pal, 3-year old Jenna, has lots of stuffed animals. I try to nonchalantly grab one every time I'm in her room, but I always seem to get caught. She's clever, though, and has started hiding them in her laundry hamper.
My friends at AGA mentioned I wasn't very good on a leash and boy did I give my new mommy a run for her money when she came to adopt me-- pulled her clear across the parking lot. But she caught onto my games and, thanks to AGA advice, got the right collar then **poof** I was a totally different dog. I had to show her I really did know how to heel and walk very nicely on the leash (drats!). By the end of my first day with my new family, I was heeling like a champ. I guess if it gets me extra treats and loves, I don't mind showing my doggie manners.
Thanks to Lisle, Candace, Renee, Kay, Heather and Carol at AGA for all the great advice they gave my new parents during the approval/adoption process. Everyone was so responsive and it allowed me to quickly find my new forever home.
