Josh, before and after

Post by gbste on Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:47 pm

Josh is my latest foster dog. He's a chesapeake bay retriever/golden retriever mix. Here's what he looked like when we picked him up at the dogpound:

and here's what he looks like now:



This shows a week's worth of grooming. He still has some grooming ahead of him, but he's looking much better now.

We're having a pretty good summer so far. We don't do too much on July 4. Our elderly dog, Henry, is terrified of loud noises, so we stick around and try to keep him calm.

Wow. The pics look like 2 different dogs! He has amazing coloring, now that he's been cleaned up a bit. Chesapeake head and front quarters, Golden fur & colors following. Someone should write a children's book about how unusual and beautiful mutts can be! [*sings* *Patrick, are you listening?*] I'm sure he has a little while before all the grooming is finished and he starts to grow out as a healthy dog, but this guy is going to end up unique and gorgeous!

Two of my favorite breeds in one dog. Very Happy He is going to be stunning once he comes into his own. He looks 1000% better after his grooming. Well done!

In about a month of good food and grooming, he's going to be a heartbreaker.

YAY Josh!! Smile Like a Star @ heaven

So, when you had him groomed, did he have his face shaved too? I ask since it looks so different from the before pic...

Didn't shave anything--just brushed, combed, and bathed him.

They do make a nice family, don't they?

They do indeed! I'm so happy for Josh. Did you get a good vibe from them, gbste? They seem so young; did they seem responsible? Of course, everyone looks young to me. tongue

arni i can see where you're coming from...i thought the same thing about his shoulders. it might be partly due to the way his head is between the two pictures though;)

HOORAY FOR JOSH! Sure didn't take him long to charm someone into adopting him, did it? Wish I could see the pic........

That is one happy family. I am SO glad Josh found people who obviously love him. Nobody's too young to really love a dog, are they, Suzzz? Razz

Nobody is ever too young to love a dog, for sure...but sometimes it is hard to trust! bounce

Oh, gosh, no!! I didn't mean that at all! They both looked delighted to have Josh in their lives!

I do sometimes worry about, say, college kids who fall in love with a dog or cat and mean to give it a lifelong home, then find that they can't as their lives and relationships change. I don't know if these were a college couple or young marrieds or what, and I truly wasn't making any assumptions. (Like I said, all young adults look impossibly young to me!) I was just wondering if gbste knew anything about the details. Sorry, that query was the micro-manager in me rearing it's ugly head. Embarassed I'm sure the adoption folks are very careful. Besides, no future carries a guarantee, does it? Believe me, I'm thrilled about Josh's new home! I love you

Oh! I know what you mean. I remember my own college days. I wanted a dog or cat, but I wasn't in stable housing, my roommates were weird, and I was BROKE. Definitely not the perfect adopter. Of course, all that led to my pet collector habits now. Laughing
