Sir was adopted and is living in Baton Rouge with a GSGRR alumni.
From his mom:
"It's been a week now, and I think that Sir and Suzy are going to be fine! She still pursues him to play and mess around a bit more than I think he'd prefer, in his heart of (lazy) hearts, but he takes it well and now is instigating playtime himself. (I would, for my part, prefer less wrestling in the living room, but it seems very good-natured, so I just shove them outside if they get too crazy.) In sum, I think we have a good fit!"
Sir came to us after his owners asked us to find him another home. He likes long walks on the beach, only if he gets to go swimming.

Watson was adopted and is living in Slidell LA.
An update from May of 2014:
My wonderful foster, Watson, went to Slidell on Friday with Stephanie and family. He had an exciting weekend swimming in the pool and playing with his new siblings and humans. The trial run was successful and he is now a part of their family.
Watson came to us from a local shelter where he was an unclaimed stray. As happens from time to time, he appeared extremely energetic while at the shelter but as soon as he was out of that hectic environment he calmed down significantly. He has proven himself to be a nice, good boy. His energy level is moderate for a young dog.
