Believe it or not, our new dog literally walked into my life, thanks to Golden Retriever Rescue of Michigan.
As many of you may have read about two months ago in Grosse Pointe Patch, my sweet golden retriever, Flash, passed away at the end of September as a result of lymphoma. But today I am here to tell you that puppy love lives again and his name is Woody! After going through the loss of Flash, I knew that I would never be able to replace her. She had a mischievous personality laced with unending love that won’t ever be replicated. But I also realized that my life had an incredibly noticeable void. I needed a dog. I went to an event hosted by the Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society (GPAAS), a wonderful organization, to see golden retriever-German shepherd mix puppies. I realized then that I want another pure golden, but I didn’t want a puppy…

Scores of clean pooches plus thousands of dollars in donations equals a winning combination for local nonprofit Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society.
At 4 years old, Alex Hughes wanted to do something substantial to help animals. Now, seven years later, her dog wash event at the corner of Bedford and Kercheval in Grosse Pointe Park has become one of the largest sources of private fund-raising for the local nonprofit Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society. Founded more than 14 years ago, the Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society does not have a sheltering facility but instead places pets with foster families. The noneuthanasia organization finds appropriate homes for indoor animals that have been abandoned, surrendered or found. Through the growing support of approximately 30 friends, more than 50 dogs have been bathed at a suggested donation of $10 each year for Hughes' dog wash. Last …

The furry canines of the Grosse Pointes and area turned out Saturday to help raise money for the Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society--many of the dogs were adopted through the nonprofit organization that holds adoptions twice a month. Attendees were encouraged to raise funds from friends and family before arriving at the event and those who raised more than $100 received a Paws In the Park tee-shirt.
