He’s got a gold mane, he’s gentle, intelligent, absolutely adorable. Meet Zen. The latest addition to the family. Thanks to the two ladies at ProjectSaveTheDogs – Mel and Vinsie, this year-old thoroughbred Golden Retriever has found a new home 🙂
Picked him up on Saturday, the slightly malnourished fella. My current resident dog and protector of all things good – Bond, our Labrador-mongrel hybrid, wasn’t too happy and really showed his displeasure by being absolutely menacing and aggressive towards his new timid housemate.
Bond was incredibly jealous, and especially when I stroked Zen.
It’s been more than a day now, and they have since gotten used to each other’s presence, Bond slowly but surely accepting Zen. His hostility initially has subsided, except for moments when he wants attention. He’d growl in Zen’s presence to get him to back off.
One half of my dream fulfilled. Now to get another Retriever! 🙂
