A wise man once said "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight". We choose to remember the day you came into our lives, not the terrible day that you left...
We had gone to the Animal Welfare League to find a companion for Remo the Red. Our older pup, Perky, was getting up there and didn't want to be bothered with a rambunctious Golden Retriever. We were surprised to see a lovely 3 yr old Golden girl sitting in a kennel. The cage card said you were a "stray-not claimed". How could that possibly be? Who wouldn't move Heaven and Earth to find this beautiful girl?
On May 30th, just 3 days before Remo's 2nd Birthday, we brought you home to stay. You and Remo bonded quickly, as if you had always been together. Sadly your Golden spirit had been dimmed by whatever you had experienced before. You were afraid of big men, loud noises, children and especially boys on bikes. But within a year's time your Golden spirit had healed...
We were so blessed... Thank you, HoneyBunny, for all the love you gave to us and every child who stroked your soft golden fur.
