Hi, Charlie Bear here, with a featured rescue dog….ummm…make that two:
Peggy Frezon shares:
age at adoption: 11
breed: Golden retriever
rescue group: Peppertree Rescue
We decided it was time to add another dog to our family, and wanted to rescue a dog who would otherwise not have an easy time finding a home. Brooks was abandoned and had been in rescue groups for about a year without being adopted. He may be old in years but he’s young at heart. He loves to fetch a tennis ball, and would retrieve all day if we let him. He loves to be patted and when he sits in front of you asking for TLC, we can’t resist!
We found Kelly on a Petfinder listing and thought she was just the most adorable little girl, with tufts of hair sticking up all over like a bad hair day. We were just empty nesting, and Kelly became a new and happy focus to fill the empty places. She loves to jump up on the back of the chair and curl around my neck like a scarf. When we learned she was a bit overweight she became the inspiration for me to get her healthy and fit–and to lose weight right along with her.

Charlie Bear here. Well now, don’t Brooks and Kelly look like fun dogs? I’d bet we’d romp and play together in a park like best of friends. Only thing is, we live like 2,500 miles apart! Mom Peep and I think it’s great that Peggy and her husband adopted Brooks at age 11. Older dogs need loving too, just like us young whippersnappers, right?
Woofs & Wiggles to you,
