In Honor Of My Gotcha Day...

June 20, 2008
Among the Very Most Bestest Days of My Life

My Gotcha Day!!!












I sure made the Mom happy that day!
And that was just the beginning of a wonderful life together.

In Honor of The Life,
We are establishing a Special Fund,
Dedicated to the Rescue of Senior Goldens
through Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston.

Our initial donation was made today.
And while The Fund has been established,
it has not yet been named,
The Mom and I will be grateful for your suggestions.

wif the best of Memories,
wif the tears of sadness and tears of joy, and...

I think that fund is a great way for your memory and love to live on and on! :) Perhaps Golden Hearts might be a good name for it. I'm not always the best at those things.

Oh The Luke, What happiness you gave The Mom in such a short time.
Just looking at your photos, we are so happy and proud that we got to know and love you. We so had hoped to some day be able to Hug you in person.
We know we will meet you someday, but until then please watch over all your friends and blogging buddies here on Earth. Especially The Mom, The Bleu and The Reufus.
We know that your paw directed Reufus into The Mom and The Bleu's life and we thank you for that.
We miss you Luke and think about you everyday.
A fund to help other Goldens is such a wonderful idea, and we know you are grinning from ear to ear that The Mom is going to do that in your honor.

We are not sure of what type of name would work for the fund, but we know that you began a New Life when you were adopted by The Mom.

We would suggest,
"The Luke's GRRH New Life Fund"

Happy Gotcha Day, our eternal friend! That was one of the luckiest days ever for ALL of us! The Mom and The Bleu and Reufus have come up with a brilliant way to spread the love your family has. Some great name suggestions have been made, we know that to the dogs it will help it will simply be known as "Thanks, Luke!"

I was quite surprised with delight to see a Golden Boy post. He is a beautiful angel boy who I always gravitated to. Who he was and what he meant to The Mom was so much like my Devo. He will always have a place in my heart and on my blog.
The Luke is the real deal.

What a bittersweet post. The Luke looks so beautiful and handsome! Such a gorgeous dog! And I know Angel The Luke is wagging his tail in joy at the memory his Gotcha Day brings to you. Thanks for sharing this special time, and the wonderful photos.

The Fund is such a fabulous idea! Good luck, and I hope it helps to save many many senior Goldens.
