Cheyenne is a 4 year old Golden Retriever mix. Possibly with a spaniel. She is all golden at heart. Other than a couple of white patches, white belly and her white "shoes" she looks all golden. Her hair feels like mink and it is thick. She is missing the long tail of a golden, which if you have ever almost broke your neck trying to NOT step on the tail of a golden who is laying by your feet, not having a tail might be a good thing for you. She does not seem to miss it a bit. When she is happy she wags what is there plus her whole back end. And she is happy most of the time.
Cheyenne is a sweet good natured girl. She LOVES to have her belly rub. She immediately lays down each time you come home hoping for a good rub. She knows sit, lay, stay and will hold the stay for a long time. She is a good watch dog as she barks to alert you of anyone coming. She barks at strangers but once she is introduced will roll over for those belly rubs!! She is good with other dogs and settled in quickly with the other fur-kids. She shares toys most of the time and will play tug of war with ropes. She is not fierce about guarding toys and food but has given only a small growl to say "that's mine", but stops immediately when told to be quiet.
She loves to wrestle with other dogs but will also lay quietly when it is time to settle down. She loves to go for rides, walks and loves to go to the doggy park. She does not seem to want to go swimming even when the other dogs do. But I don't see her as being afraid of the water either. It just isn't her thing. She is current on all her shots but will need to be spayed before being adopted.
The other night after working in the garden, I decide to take time out and sit in the backyard swing. Cheyenne came running immediately and climbed up in the swing with me. I don't know a lot about Cheyenne's background, but this made me think this was not the first time she had been in a swing.
She has very cute characteristics that will endure her to your heart. She crosses her front paws like a proper lady should. She has the curliest ears I have ever seen. She loves to snuggle on the coach and she will keep your feet warm in the winter.
Cheyenne will be at PetSmart Saturday, September 13th if you are interested in meeting her in person.
Cheyenne was at PetSmart on Saturday and met many wonderful people. She was a good girl in the midst of the crowd of other fur-kids, adults and human kids. She was kind of scared at first and was somewhat timid, but then did relax and take it all in stride. More than one person said they were very taken with Cheyenne.
If you were there and are interested in Cheyenne please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest and they will let me know.
Cheyenne is scheduled to be spayed on September 22nd. She would be ready to go to her forever home after she has had a chance to heal some.
Each day I fall more and more in love with this girl. She is very obedient and is very attentive when I am speaking to her. You can tell she wants to make sure she is doing the right thing. Cheyenne loves to cuddle on the couch and since she is so soft it is just a joy to have her cuddle up. I am not sure who is more relaxed, her or me from cuddling.
She will be a very loyal companion and will give you lots of love.
Hi Everyone – Cheyenne here!
On Monday, September 22, I will be going to the Vet for surgery. My FM says not to worry, that everything will be fine. She said that after the surgery the “boys” won’t bother me so much any more. Sounds good to me!! FM said I have to stay overnight but that when I get home I will be treated like a queen while I recover and heal. I pretty much am now so I don’t know how it could be any better.
So this weekend I will be going to the RAGOM picnic to kick up my paws (white shoes – my FM calls them). I won’t be going into the water much but if there is a squirrel in the vicinity, he better look out ‘cause I’m fast. My FM says that my forever home will need a fence because I chase the squirrels so much. Well, if I am fenced in, maybe they will be too – cool. Now if I can just figure out how to climb those trees.
Right now I am living with 2 fur bothers and 1 fur sister. I get along with them ok. I kind of like having someone to pal around with. I don’t care to wrestle all that much but having a buddy to explore with is pretty cool. Mostly I like having my FM all to myself. I like it when we cuddle and when she brushes me. I am always first when it comes time for brushing. The other night my FM made me wait to be second. I think she was testing me to see if I would get mad or not. I didn’t but I still would rather be first.
If you are at the picnic – look me up – I’m the one with the white shoes!
Cheyenne had her surgery today. The surgery went well and she is doing great. She is staying overnight and will come home tomorrow. I will get a couple of days to spoil her and enjoy our time of wonderful cuddling. The greatest news of all is that Cheyenne has found her forever family!! The M family will be taking Cheyenne to her new home on Friday, September 26th. Congratulations to the M family!
From Cheyenne's forever family...
Greetings RAGOM fans -
We just wanted to send a quick update on Cheyenne. We adopted Cheyenne back in September 2008 and she has been such a joy! She is a GR mix - we believe she is part Springer Spaniel. You should see her run through our backyard - the way she jumps reminds us of a deer. It seems as if she has springs on her legs allowing her to simply fly through the air. She never lacks for attention as we are so in love with her.
We had a GR that we raised from puppyhood until she was 12 years of age. We had to put her down in June of 2007 due to some health issues complicated by her age. So needless to say - it is so wonderful to have a dog around again! Just this afternoon we took the kids (ages 3, 7 and 9) sledding at a huge hill not far from our home. We took Cheyenne with and she was so funny. She chased the kids down the hill on their sleds and then would race them to the top only to do it all over again. She certainly got a good workout and is resting as I type this.
Cheyenne came with very little history or information ... but we've said from the beginning that someone's loss was certainly our gain. She is well behaved, playful, affectionate and a pure delight. We are looking forward to the summer months as we like to camp and can't wait to share our adventures with the newest member of our family. Thank you RAGOM for all that you do for these wonderful animals!
Cheyenne and the M Family
