We adopted Ruben four months ago, after we lost our last Golden. Ruben was relinquished by his owners, after going through 3 surgeries. He then had knee reconstructive surgery while in foster care. He gets chiropractic or acupuncture weekly, and hydrotherapy pool walks. He has gained muscle, his fur has grown back.
He is a real charmer and cuddler, car rides are his favorite activity. Each day starts and ends on his dog bed while I stroke his face. We can’t imagine life without him – yesterday my husband was looking at him and said ‘I love you Ruben, I really do’, and Ruben gave him ‘those eyes’, put his face on my husband’s knee, as if to say ‘love you too!’
