Review for Oldies But Goodies (OBG) Cocker Rescue, Newington, VA, USA
Oldies But Goodies brings together sweet dogs and loving volunteers. While a board member just since last year, OBG came into the life of my family in 2003 with Leo, a black cocker who became my mother's closest companion after my father died and her dementia set in. His unjudging love for Mom - as he lay day in and day out on what she called "the pocket of my tummy" - has made us lifelong fans of Oldies But Goodies. More recently, my spouse and I have adopted senior dogs, including Peppermint Pattie who disproves you can't teach an old dog new tricks: since being rescued from a breeder's at 13, she has learned to climb steps! OBG volunteers are professional, dedicated, and work together as a team, as clear from the success of the Fall 2016 anniversary picnic marking its 20th Anniversary (please see photo). I'm always impressed with what people I run into say about OBG; whether meeting the parent of an OBG at the vet or talking with a Petco manager who once volunteered with OBG, I hear raves and kudos. Makes me proud to be part of it!
