Adoption Alert ~ Shylow #2647 - Adoption Pending

Hi everyone…my name is Shylow and I’m almost 11 years old.  I’m a big boy but I’m called a gentle giant.  Some call me ‘Big Red’.  I don’t care what you call me just don’t call me late for dinner ~ bada-bing…I still laugh at that old chestnut. Speaking of old, no doubt you have noticed I’m a senior golden.  Now, all that really means is I’m experienced.  I have been around long enough to know pretty much everything about the world.  I therefore know my commands.  I am very social and I don’t have many needs.  I know there’s not much point in getting too excited about stuff and generally I love life.  I also love people and other dogs.  As my pseudonym ‘Gentle Giant’ might infer, I am a very gentle boy particularly around food and treats.  I probably could be a little better on the leash and I have never really gotten over my counter surfing habit but the rest of me is just about perfect according to my fabulous foster family.  I love cuddling and being petted and I’m pretty healthy for my age ~ a little stiffness, a pill for my thyroid, and my eyes aren’t quite as sharp as they used to be but…

Wo!  I feel good, I knew that I would now

I feel good, I knew that I would now

So good, so good, I got you!

Wo!  I feel nice, like sugar and spice

I feel nice, like sugar and spice

So nice, so nice, I got you!

Okay…I don’t know where that came from.  That James Brown is one cool cat.  He’s from my era and he can still get me dancing ~ you see, there’s still some juice in this old boy yet…bada-bing!
