Tonka, is doing really well! We love him to bits! He's a sweetheart with all of us and is truly a member of our family. Our 6 year old daughter has found a new sibling and can't imagine a day without him! Here are some photos that we're taken in the beginning and I'll send some new ones shortly.
Heidi, Glenn and Clare
P.S. The pictures of Tonka on the blue yoga mat are a daily routine; he loves to jump on my mat in between exercises; I've sent this out to my friends and captioned them "Tonka's downward dog poses" (after the position in yoga).
In December, 2008, we were alerted to the issue of homeless Goldens in Taiwan through an email from a young rescuer named Rita.

Rita and MJ are two dog-loving young ladies who want to make a difference. Despite huge odds and with an amazing level of effort, they are doing incredible things without many resources.
