God saw that you were getting tired,
And your cure was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with me."
A Golden heart stopped beating,
Adoring eyes went to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
- Carol Aberst

We are approaching the first anniversary of the date our beloved Golden, Biscuit, passed away—October 13, 2013. We received Biscuit, then known as Seinfeld, on July 29, 2007, from you. We were to be first time foster parents. He was a stray, found in Stark County.  How could such a large, hairy dog crawl into our hearts so quickly! GRIN lost another foster family, and we adopted Biscuit.

I was at work 4 yrs ago and a mass email came out saying GRIN needed foster homes BAD.  I went to the website and seen him "HANK".  I immediately called and said "can I foster Hank?"  There was something deep in his eyes that spoke to me.  Then the call to my husband, Jack came and I had to talk him into getting a foster dog.
