Tramp has been to see the oncologist, and she was quite optimistic about him! She said he has Cutaneous lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymphocytes in the skin. This cancer involves the top layer of skin, and is generally slow to progress. This cancer cannot be cured, but can be managed with chemotherapy. As Tramp is in good shape, and all the lumps gone for now, we are hoping he does well on the drugs and is around for some time to come! He is a happy boy, loving life in his home! Our thanks again to Nicole and Jason for taking such great care of this boy@ ... See MoreSee Less

Sweet Tramp had surgery a couple weeks ago, to remove three growths, which we hoped were cysts. He has recovered very well. Unfortunately it looks like all three were T Cell Lymphomas. We did a special stain, to confirm the diagnosis of Round Cell tumors, consistent with Plasmacytoma.
We made an appointment with an Oncologist, to see what options there are for this boy.
Tramp has been doing wonderfully in his foster home - he has won their hearts, and they told us that he is part of their family now, and is welcome to stay. Thank you so much Nicole and Jason.....you are special people. There is a special place in our hearts for folks like you, who give these seniors a home, for however long it may be.

Want to get something for the Goldens?

Sometimes Goldens can be a bit naughty,
But  mostly they are nice
Here are a few things on their wish list,
So you won’t have to think twice!

  • Grain Free Biscuits (Costco & Sam’s Club shoppers… Wet Noses & Doggie Delirious Biscuits are a favorite, and the Goldies do well on them!)
  • Large Nylabones or Galileo Bones
  • Bully Sticks
  • Virbac Dental Chews
  • Greenies Pill Pockets
  • Kong Balls or sturdy rubber balls
  • Good cuz or Bad Cuz balls (a favorite with the Goldies!)
  • Collars   16-18 inches
  • Fish Oil Capsules
  • Rimadyl or Glucosamine – for the old folks
  • Gift certificates from Redwood Veterinary
  • Gift certificate from Fosters and Smith (see our link under Support CGRR)
  • Gift certificate from The Dog’s Meow

No rawhide bones please… we cannot always be with the Goldens to supervise.



We will no longer be at The Dogs Meow once a month. They have done some remodeling to enlarge the store. They are big supporters of rescue, and have helped several different rescue groups…… and we appreciate them very much! We will probably have a donation box and our info up there, so be sure to remember the Goldens when you are in there shopping for your pooches! You can also purchase a gift card for the Goldies.

We will miss seeing many of you that came to visit us. Thanks so much for your support!
