Being dog lovers and (previous) golden retriever owners, we knew that having a golden would make the perfect addition to our new home and growing family. The fact that we were able to rescue a GOLDEN from Turkey was icing on the cake!

When we met Kobi (neé Alley), it was absolute love at first sight. He was the “quiet” one, and quite literally FELL into our laps. While today he is NOT so quiet, he still loves to snuggle up to anyone and everyone from family members to complete strangers on the street, but his favorite is his new (human) little brother, Eitan!

Kobi is the most lovable little character we could have ever welcomed into our home. Although at times his mischief can get the best of him, like taking an unopened jar of peanut butter off the counter and eating half of it! Or chewing up a favorite pair of glasses (he gets his style from his momma), there is no way to stay mad at his little face!! When we’re not around him, we miss him terribly, and when he’s having play dates with his grandparents and fellow-golden cousin, Boston, our house truly feels empty.

Love doesn’t even describe what our little man has brought into our lives. We may have “saved” him, but we are the fortunate ones.
