April's Dog of the Month

Here she is, our April Earth Friendly Dog of the Month.  Don and Leslie are the proud owners and told us her story:

"Here is our 9 year old Golden Retriever named Kelcey. I am a nurse in a pediatric emergency room. One saturday evening a 3 1/2 year old boy came in with a dog bite. He actually had a small laceration under one eye. I went in to see my patient, asked some questions, who's dog was it, shots up to date, etc. Then being an animal lover, I asked, without sounding like I was discounting the injury, "what happened to the dog?"

"I was relieved to hear nothing. I asked what the plans were, I was told that they would be getting rid of it. Either someone takes it or they would put her to sleep. As I asked questions, I was told the 3 1/2 yo frequently would grab and squeeze the dog, as happened that evening. I gave the father my number to give me a call, as we might take her. I then asked what the breed was, a Golden! The boy was patched up, and discharged. By 8am the next morning, the owner called me to ask if I wanted the dog. He was at my house 1/2 later. Spaded, house broken, beautiful. Kelcey walked away from the former owner without even looking back. it was like she has always been with us. Besides a midlife weight problem she is a joy to have as a member of our family.  She is now on an all natural diet and an exercise program... Well, actually that is for all of us."

Congrats to Don, Leslie and Kelcey!
