Goodnewsforpets.com’s dog mascot is Lola, an AKC registered pure-bred purpose-bred Labrador Retriever. She lives with her best pal Rosie who is a rescued shelter dog. Lola is the grandpup of editor and publisher Lea-Ann Germinder.
Lola’s mom is a general surgeon and Lola herself has had several surgeries in her young life. She’s had to endure quiet crate time as she recovers from her travails and has worn several “cones of shame.” She has managed to recover nicely. Now she frolics in the yard and goes for many swims to her heart’s content.
Like all great retrievers, Lola loves to fetch and stick toys and squeak balls are her favorite toys. She also likes to chew, or as her mom says, “defluff” with great abandon. If you have a Lab in your family, you are quite familiar with both habits.
She also loves to bake with her mom and can often be seen watching the treats bake in the oven, waiting patiently for a crumb or two. This time we ordered an extra special treat to celebrate Goodnewsforpets.com’s 20th Anniversary. The actual day is February 20, 2020 but who’s going to hold these two back?
Happy Birthday Goodnewsforpets.com!
