We all know there comes a time when our faithful and beloved companions must cross the Rainbow Bridge. The following are tributes to these wonderful creatures.
On Christmas Eve in 2005 I adopted a beautiful golden retriever from GRIN she was 2 or 3 and today 8/18/15 I had to put my beloved Brooke down--she was such a beautiful companion and the most wonderful dog I have ever had---in 2005 I applied and was paired with her and I had my misgivings at first-- but WOW... I do not recall who matched me with her but what an awesome right spot on match! I miss her so much and just wanted to share how grateful I am to have had her in my life and it wouldn't of been possible without GRIN. Thank you --Kathryn
It is with heavy hearts that we report our beloved GRIN #10185 Senior Aadoption "Danny#2" is on his way to Dog Heaven. This small & stoic golden was rescued by from Belmount Cty., OH. he was abandoned in St. Claresville, OH. GRIN picked him up and took him to GRIN's vet. He was then lovingly fostered by Anna & Frank McVan in Madison OH. (as their #49 GRIN foster). We adopted him Nov 3, 2011 - he passed away in the loving hands of his owners & the awesome AHI staff of: Dr. Jen J. & Theresa C. (both GRIN owners) on August 6th 2015. He was buried with prior GRIN dogs: Windy & Danny #1.
