I thought I’d give you an update on how Goldie is doing.  She is a sweet dog and my girl’s love snuggling with her.  I know there was some concern about her getting along with my cat.  That has not been an issue at all.  Our cat actually rubs on Goldie and they get along great.  I’ve been working on socializing her and she’s made friends with a few dogs in the neighborhood.  The sad part is how she reacted towards some of my guy friends, leading me to think she has suffered some abuse in her past life.  She is getting past this thanks to my friends working with her.  She is still a bit anxious and when she is settled we want to come get her a playmate that can match her energy level.  Goldie is an intelligent dog and a welcome addition to our family.  Thanks for letting us have her!!
