I am writing to give you an update on my new baby that you know as Guinivere. Her new name is Riley. I wanted a playmate for my 7 month yellow lab puppy, Maggie. I went to the Briarcliff SPCA in Briarcliff, NY a week ago and went home with Riley. She is the sweetest dog ever. She has really come out of her shell this week and is having a blast with my other dog and my daughters dogs. We were dogsitting for a couple of days. Not only is she sweet, she is smart and funny. She is having a ball running around our property. She is a perfect young lady. She is so thankful I took her home, she is glued to me.
I am so thankful for you and Homeward Bound Project, you saved her sweet soul and so many others. When I went to see her at the SPCA most people were there for the puppies, not too many for the older dogs or cats. There are so many others looking for homes, I wanted to take more home with me. I felt so bad getting in the car with her and the others watching. So sad. Good luck to you and your colleagues and keep up the great work for these sweet animals. We need more groups out there for all the abandoned and mistreated animals.
If you have any other information on Guinivere, I would love to have it. ie: where you got here from and how she ended up with Homeward Bound Project. She seems to have been someone's pet. She comes when called, even to a her new name, she has only had a couple of potty accidents. She does have a cold, but she seems to have these gasping bouts, which are scary. The vet said she has a cold, but if it continues bring her back. He did not actually see this episode happen. I looked it up online and it could be a reverse sneeze. I never heard of it. I wll keep a watch, but would love to know anything I can about her.
I am attaching 2 pictures of her. One is the day I took her some and she met my puppy Maggie and the other one are two new best friends, Riley is on the left.
Forever Grateful for my new baby.
Update 9/7/12: Riley has settled into her new home after 6 months and is one of the gang now. She and Maggie are best buds as you will see in the pictures. I am very happy with my choice as Riley is happy, funny sweet and a good watch dog.
