GReat news: Van Gogh gets adopted ... and boy is he lucky!! a/k/a Travels with Van Gogh

You may recall that author David Rosenfelt was in Houston a few weeks ago promoting his newest novel in the Andy Carpenter series, New Tricks. It was released this summer featuring Andy Carpenter, the dog-loving, smart-mouthed attorney and his golden retriever Tara, along with a new character, a Bernese Mountain Dog.

(See David Rosenfelt discuss "New Tricks" and life with dogs on YouTube - click on YouTube to watch the video. The Tara Foundation, which David and his wife founded in memory of their beloved Golden Tara, has rescued over 4,000 Goldens. Currently, David and his wife lovingly take those Goldens too old or ill to be adopted into their home, where they spend their "Golden" years.)

Van Gogh was there at the book signing proudly representing Golden Beginnings when David saw him, asked about him and decided he had to adopt him! This all took about 3.5 minutes!! Since David lives in California, we have been working with volunteers and other rescues to set up transport for Van Gogh. This sweet and deserving dog started his trip to sunny California yesterday and we couldn't be happier!
