From puppy mill dog to beloved family member, heartwarming only begins to describe Honey’s story. In the process of finding a better life, she also has warmed the hearts of those she has met.

Four months after she was rescued by Wisconsin Adopt A Golden Retriever, Inc. (Brookfield, Wis.) and learned the many lessons on how to be a dog, she came to our home for foster care at the age of seven and never left. Shy and quiet when we first got her, she found her bark and a spring in her step with the help of our other Golden Retriever, Sulley. Trips to the cottage are her favorite, as are treats and squeaky toys. She never begs for food, but knows to wait by her bowl when pancakes or waffles are made (smart girl).

Knowing Honey’s background, every day she teaches lessons about loving life. At almost 14, she rules our home, and has stolen the hearts of members of my family. And she has given back to the rescue that did so much for her, appearing on TV, at events, and in publicity to represent WAAGR.

If you come to my house, you will most likely find her sleeping and possibly dreaming of her next pancake, a far cry from where her life began. We can’t imagine our lives without her.
