Gem got adopted about two weeks after arriving at the Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR). I've been told his adopter is someone who has volunteered for GRRR for a few years and was taken by him right away when she met him. Not hard to fall in love with this guy. I still miss him, every day. It's a long farewell that may last a lifetime. I just wish I could talk to his new person and tell her all the fun things we used to do and all his commands that he knows and how to catch his attention and how much he likes to play pouncing games... And I wish I could see him again and give him a big hug and kiss. I'm sorry every day that it came down to this. The good reasons are that Jasper is safe and Gem has a new home as an "only dog" and a fresh outlook on life, and maybe even a big yard.
