Pure Gold Morgans - Michigan - a family farm that raises lovable, huggable Morgans and German Shepherd Dogs


In a forgotten plot called Happy Hunting Grounds in South Lyon, there is an old pet cemetery that also is home to fallen canine veterans that was nearly reclaimed by nature as years of neglect for the unsung heroes let overgrowth consume it's former grandeur.

If you marched with us in the 4th of July parade behind the American Legion color guard and got a huge lump in your throat as the announcer spoke of these fallen heroes who saved thousands of lives you understand why some volunteered to brave the humid heat to battle the weeds and vines to unearth this memorial.

If you would like to donate some sweat equity or coin to the cause as this group of volunteers seeks to restore this place,  please contact Judy by email: puregoldmorgans@earthlink.net

Many Thanks to all the Volunteers!
