We all know there comes a time when our faithful and beloved companions must cross the Rainbow Bridge. The following are tributes to these wonderful creatures.
John was another stray – just a lonely boy wandering the hot, humid streets.
He went straight to our vet partner; poor boy has intestinal problems…maybe from stuff he was forced to eat to ward off hunger pangs? He also has hot spots and ear infections, all which have been addressed. This just speaks to the pain and suffering that a homeless dog faces. Now for the really good news: John’s absolutely adorable. He has that “hunter” look - the big, blocky Golden face and body. And he’s as handsome as he is sweet and gentle.
We couldn't have asked for a better Golden girl, Maddie.She was loving and happy and very easy going. This GRIN girl Maddie took our hearts. She almost had the personality of the Dorey fish in finding Nemo, not always the brightest but the sweetest! We decided after our AKC Golden Banner was a year old he needed a friend and we wanted to get a rescue. From day one Maddie came into our home and made it her own. She loved Banner, the kids and even the cat Oreo, but Maddie was my shadow and my companion. She was always at my side or nearby. It's hard to sum up what a wonderful dog Maddie was in just a brief sentence, but she was everything text book positive they print about a Golden!
